Global Lighthouse Network

ASEH began its journey towards Industry 4.0 almost a decade ago, with the creation of the Industry Automation Committee to drive the company’s digital transformation. We have so far, accomplished several milestones including the successful establishment of lights-out factories, introduction of AI in core operations, and development of a 5G mmWave smart factory. Amongst the ASEH global sites, ASE Kaohsiung is a leader in the development of smart manufacturing and automation in the IC packaging industry. In particular, the bumping facility at ASEKH has successfully deployed 4IR (4th Industrial Revolution) technologies across hundreds of complex fabrication processes, improving manufacturing yields and accuracy that resulted in a 67% increase in output and a 39% reduction in order leadtime. In 2023, the ASEKH bumping facility was inducted into the WEF Global Lighthouse Network (GLN), joining the ranks of 132 other leading manufacturers worldwide. As businesses continue to deal with rising energy costs, talent shortages, supply chain disruption, climate change, and other challenges, ASEH is taking the lead as a lighthouse member to create a resilient and sustainable smart manufacturing ecosystem through the adoption of 4IR technologies.
