CoreTigo Launches North America Operations

IO-Link Wireless is a low latency (5 msec) and scalable universal wireless communication protocol. Based on the IO-Link IEC 61131-9 standard, it is designed specifically for factory automation.

CoreTigo, a solution provider for industrial machine builders and equipment manufacturers, has expanded into North America.

"CoreTigo's high-end IO-Link Wireless industrial automation communication enables faster and more flexible manufacturing. With the vision of transformation from mass production to mass customization, CoreTigo's mission is to enable ultimate production line flexibility and adaptivity, while increasing throughput," said a company spokesperson.

Its solution is comprised of several layers, descending from the software level, where it provides the ability to configure, analyze and optimize production lines, all the way down to the very basic factory level, where it enables communication, control and data for high-speed automation on the machine. With its portfolio of IO-Link Wireless devices, CoreTigo enables machine builders to create machines with embedded wireless transmission as well as seamlessly retrofit legacy machines.

"IO-Link Wireless provides a new level of capability," said the spokesperson. "With its robust specification, high reliability and low latency (5 msec), IO-Link Wireless ensures cable-grade connectivity even on machine parts rotating thousands of times per minute or pallets moving at several m/sec, all while withstanding extreme factory conditions of heat, cold, humidity, vibration and electrical interference."

The spokesperson continued, "With the consumer products and eCommerce trends that require a large variety of products at high capacity and in smaller lot sizes, a new solution was in order. Suppliers have been struggling to meet the need for mass customization and increased capacity. Due to the traditional tradeoff between high flexibility and high throughput production lines, this has always been a conflict. With IO-Link Wireless, CoreTigo has solved this by introducing a hardware-enabled SaaS solution that creates faster and more flexible industrial automation."

The solution is comprised of real-time edge control units along with breakthrough connectivity technology that enables machines and production lines to transition to a flexible distributed control architecture.

CoreTigo Inc. is located Grand Rapids, MI, alongside the Grand River. It is led by President Reid Schook, a former Rockwell Automation executive with over 35 years of experience in the factory automation market.

CoreTigo Inc. is a registered member of PI North America, the Association for Advancing Automation (A3) and more. CoreTigo is also a Rockwell Automation Technology Partner. CoreTigo's products are compatible with Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT, OPC UA and more, as well as being ODVA certificated.
