Metalix delivers support to Chih Kang’s new Trumpf fiber laser
Chih Kang (Tainan, Taiwan, www.ck-metal.com.tw) is a leading sheet metal fabricator supplying precision products around the world.
Chih Kang employs a wide range of machines:
- From Amada: Three different punch machines, Quattro laser, and the new LC2012 C1 NT with TK part picker.
- From Trumpf: 3020 laser, and now the new 3030 fiber with the tube cutting option (RotoLAS).
Metalix has been supporting Chih Kang for over 10 years, allowing re-use of both human training/knowledge and parts/nests, using a single software application for all the different machines and technologies.

Chih Kang Sheet Metal Museum
Chih Kang, in cooperation with the Tainan municipality, recently opened the world’s first “Sheet Metal Museum” in its new fabrication facility.
The younger generation (from kindergarten children through to university students) is exposed to sheet metal history, concepts, and advanced technology via guided tours and hands-on experiences.
