CLPA reaches milestone for open industrial network communications

Dec. 15, 2021

The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) reached new heights in its aim to promote and advance state-of-the-art open industrial communications technologies. With more than 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 developed the CC-Link IE family of open industrial networks, which are designed to enable digital manufacturing strategies at the core of the e-F@ctories of the future.

The technologies leveraged by the CC-Link IE range are among the reasons the association has experienced continuous expansion over the years. It helps ensure product vendors can rely on proven industrial communications solutions while users can benefit from a broad range from certified, interoperable automation components.

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.”
