CC-Link Reaches Milestone for Open Industrial Network Communication
December 10, 2021
The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) has reached new heights in its aim to promote and advance state-of-the-art open industrial communications technologies. With over 4,000 active members currently enrolled, the organization offers a clear example of the key role that industrial partnerships play in the successful creation of smart factories, also known as e-F@ctories.
The CLPA, one of the fastest growing industrial automation technology organizations in the world, is well-known for developing the CC-Link IE family of open industrial networks, which are specifically designed to enable digital manufacturing strategies at the core of the e-F@ctories of the future.
The high quality and advanced technologies leveraged by the CC-Link IE range, which drive next-level performance and functionality in automation devices, is one of the main reasons behind the association’s continuous worldwide expansion over the years. In effect, product vendors can rely on proven industrial communications solutions while users can benefit from a broad range from certified, interoperable automation components.
In particular, the open industrial network technologies offered by the CLPA are used as default within the entire Mitsubishi Electric portfolio. Therefore, businesses can develop automation solutions that are compatible with those of a leading industry giant. Also, they can benefit from its support to drive sales by means of global marketing activities offered through the company’s e-F@ctory Alliance.
Roy Kok, senior partnerships and alliance specialist at CLPA, comments: “We couldn’t be prouder to see our organization becoming increasingly popular as well as our solutions being broadly adopted to support futureproof digital transformation strategies. As we continue to add more partners and users, we look forward to helping companies worldwide create highly interconnected e-F@ctory systems that drive productivity.”
