There exist several constructions for fuzzy implication operators via conjunctions. In this paper we present a unifying approach to the generation of implications and we prove that for a rather general class of conjuctions the generation process is closed. In addition, all well-known families of fuzzy implications are within our framework. The results support that the class of weak t-norms having the Exchange Property seems to be a good model of the conjunction (or equivalently, of intersection) operator in fuzzy set theory.
