Sensor and automation firm Balluff has become the first European company to join the managing board of the CC-Link Partner Association, to support the organisation’s growth and development plans.
The CLPA consists of manufacturers and users of CC-Link technology, academics, and other interested parties, from around the world. CC-Link is an open automation network technology, which enables devices from numerous manufacturers to communicate.
Germany-based Balluff first joined the CLPA in 2008, to help its development in China and other Asian markets.
It will now join the managing board there, hoping to help shape the future of both the CLPA and the development of automation.
“For a leading global business like Balluff to take this step is further evidence of how CC-Link is strengthening its position in Europe and around the world,” said general manager of the CLPA in Europe, John Browett.
