1956 Mr. Y Lin started Shin-I Machinery Works in Changhwa with his meager investment of NT$ 60,000 (around US$ 1,500). With 6 employees on 59 square meters, this factory managed to produce punching dies and semi-auto can making machines, as well as mushroom processing machines. Annual production 80 sets.
1965 Shin-I Machinery Works Co., Ltd. established in Chingshui, Taichung with an increased capital of NT$ 230,000. Factory space expanded to 350 square meters and employment increased to 50. Developed into producing automatic can making machinery with capacity 120 cans per minute to meet the demand of users both at home and abroad in the field.
1969 In cooperation with Provincial Shalu Senior Technical School, selected 40 students for 3-year on-job training.
1975 Targeted for expanding market in Europe. Capital enlarged to NT$ 25 million and factory space expanded to 10,900 square meters. Employment grown to 250. Newest techniques were adopted. More strictly production control system was preformed. Striving for the progress on production skills and increasing production capacities up to 350 cans per minute. Annual production 650 sets.
1977 Stressing production control and quality control to assure our products all of high quality standard. Business activities overall enlarged and expanded its sales channel in to the United States and European Market. A new subsidiary was established in March, namely FONG YIH MACHINERY INDUSTRY CO., LTD. With NT$ 20 millon capital, 100 employees, on 3,300 square meters factory space.
1979 Modernized production equipment and facilities, Making best effort to develop high speed automatic can making machinery into a new level of 450 cpm. High speed automatic lining-drying machine and automatic vacuum syruper with 360 cpm have been developed. Annual production about 750 sets.
1988 To meet the demand of sophisticated technology of food packaging, our multi-necking machine has been developed. Our success not only saves a lot of foreign exchange for our country but also raises our reputation in beverage packaging field worldwide. To make more precise machines and to ensure the quality of Shin-I Products, we purchased several new precision equipments and QC machines, including three dimensional coordinate measuring machine.
1990 To improve our Designing Department, we purchase high technical IBM MICRO CADAM computer.
1992 The can making machinery with 800 cpm have been developed, the liquid filler combined with seamier also reach 1200 cpm high speed.
1996 To satisfy customer's requirement of high quality machinery, our capital further increased to NT$ 120 million for the purpose of adopting 3-D computer design devices to strengthen our design capability. Quintuple necking as well as quadruple necking with beading machines are then created to meet can making industry requirement. Moreover, to satisfy the demand for quality control, we apply for ISO9001 Quality System Certificate on March. With the great effort, we are finally qualified on July.
1997 To satisfy customer's high-speed requirements, we successfully develope high-speed end making system with speed up to 1200 epm.
1998 To satisfy customer's requirement of shaped cans, we successfully develape high-speed combination machine with shaper and spin flanger included. CE safety requlation has been incorporated for European market as customer's request.
2000 To satisfy different demand for food packing in the market, we cooperate with JK SOMME Spain to successfully develop automatic irregular can (vacuum) seamer, export them to western countries with get excellent reputation. Besides, automatic irregular end making line, twist-off cap and PT cap making machinery have also been developed successfully. To meet the cost down requirement in the can making industry by reducing the tinplate thickness, tooling modification on various can making machinery has been processing.
2006 We have contributed our effort for manufacturing of can making and food canning machinery for 50 years. Our products have exported to 70 countries worldwide. To meet the cost down and high speed production requirement, we endeavor to make high speed automatic whole sheet feeding CNC press with a corresponding lining machine. Based on the sprit of ISO9001 quality assurance system , all employees make effort to increase our product quality for can making industry.
2010 To meet the requirement for Aerosol can making in thinner & harder tinplate, we successfully develop spin flow necker, flanger and twin seamers (four in one). Besides, transfer press with multiple dies for aerosol top end is also developed. Our airman Mr. Lin ,Chiu Hsiung and president T.Y. Chen asked for retirement on June, the board of director elect the directors Mr. Lin, Chiu Chin and Mr. H.H. Lin as new chairman and new president respectively this year.
