Support and products have been provided by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation to the recently completed e‑F@ctory demonstration zone within the Changshu Innovation Centre for Green and Intelligent Manufacturing, aimed at promoting intelligent manufacturing in China.
The centre, which is located in the Changshu New and Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone in Changshu city, Jiangsu Province, supports manufacturing and R&D, as well as the development of human resources, in cooperation with companies, universities and research institutes.
Mitsubishi Electric established an FA components production facility, Mitsubishi Electric Automation Manufacturing (Changshu) in Changshu city in 2011. It then concluded a strategic partnership agreement with Changshu city in 2016 to support the establishment of the e‑F@ctory demonstration zone, the largest zone among exhibiting companies at the centre.
Demonstrations cover a wide variety of topics, including e‑F@ctory solutions, devices for energy savings in factories and office buildings, energy-monitoring systems and solutions developed with e‑F@ctory Alliance partners.
Mitsubishi Electric looks forward to promoting the increasing use of IoT (Internet of Things) in manufacturing by demonstrating e‑F@ctory to Chinese companies that visit the centre with the aim of adopting intelligent manufacturing concepts in accordance with the Chinese government’s ‘Made in China 2025’ programme.
