Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has provided support and products for the recently completed e‑F@ctory demonstration zone within the Changshu Innovation Centre for Green & Intelligent Manufacturing, aimed at promoting intelligent manufacturing in China.
The centre, which is located in the Changshu New & 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) Co., Ltd., 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” program.
The showroom is located at Building No.3, No.59 Huangpujiang Road, Changshu New & Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone, Jiangsu Province, China.
e‑F@ctory is Mitsubishi Electric Factory Automation business unit’s approach to the increasing digital transformation affecting business. In this context, Mitsubishi Electric customers are getting support in further developing their overall business approach by offering advice on industrial automation and information technology.
