Machine tools are known as ‘machine making machines’ and serve as the basis for all manufacturing industries. Around 60% of automotive parts are made by using machine tools. Hwacheon is the biggest manufacturer of machine tools in Korea. Holding titles for various firsts in the machine tool field in Korea, the company continues to develop new products based on the know-how it has accumulated over many years.
For this purpose, Hwacheon runs research laboratories in Gwangju and Changwon city in Gyeongsangnam-do. The company extended its business to automotive parts industry in early 2000, firmly supported by its machine tool technology. Among the automotive parts, Hwacheon manufactures the cylinder block, an engine component that requires the great precision and highest machining technology of all automotive parts, with machine tools that the company has developed on their own. In addition to cylinder blocks, Hwacheon also supplies cylinder heads and crankshafts to car manufacturers.
Last year, Hwacheon developed the world’s first ‘smart machine tool’, which received great acclaim at the Seoul International Manufacturing Technology Show.
