On November 10th 2020, a world first, immersive online event specialized on OPC UA Companion Specifications will take place — conveniently from your home office. You will learn more about the approaches and scope of published or currently being developed OPC UA Companion Specifications for the mechanical and plant engineering industry.
The keynotes by leading experts cover the following topics:
- the role of OPC UA standards for the mechanical engineering industry by the VDMA,
- updates on OPC UA activities and harmonization approaches of the OPC Foundation,
- why umati will strengthen the adoption of OPC UA standards world wide and
- how “OPC UA for Machinery” harmonization of OPC UA standards for mechanical engineering industry will serve as the basis for every upcoming OPC UA Companion Specification.
After those important information you have the choice between multiple parallel sessions where experts from the respective branches of mechanical and plant engineering will present the OPC UA standards for their industry. Unique insights into the development process as well as the contents of the standard will be explained and recommendations for the implementation will be given. Make sure to stay up to date and visit speeches from Atlas Copco, Engel Austria, Homag, ISW Stuttgart, KUKA, LNI 4.0, Mettler Toledo, Oskar Fresh, Trumpf, OPC Foundation, Robert Bosch Manufacturing Solutions GmbH, TU Munich, umati, VDMA, VDW, Wittenstein Cyber Motor and WIWA.
Dates and Agenda
Asia and Europe 8:00h until 11:30hCET
America and Europe 16:00h until 19:30h CET
The event is free of charge and will be held in english for all interested parties including non OPC UA experts and interested parties who want to get a first idea of OPC UA and the upcoming standards.

Experience the new immersive online conference technology
This event will use edge cutting online conference technology. You will have the possibility to decide whether you use your own avatar to “visit” the “conference” and navigate through the conference building and experience the new immersive technology of conferences or use the live stream, where you can also choose between the different speeches and listen the conventional way.
OPC UA standards will significantly influence and change the communication in mechanical and plant engineering as well as in the manufacturing and process industry. In addition, customers like the automotive industry of the mechanical and plant engineering industry will in future demand that products support OPC UA Companion Specifications and thus have standardized interfaces. In the VDMA, over 600 companies are currently developing interface standards, the so-called OPC UA Companion Specifications, in over 35 working groups.
New to OPC UA? Visit the beginner seminar on OPC UA basics
If you do not yet have OPC UA expertise, the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, VDMA’s advanced training academy, offers you a good introduction to the topic with the virtual seminar “OPC UA Fundamentals in Mechanical Engineering”. In the seminar you will learn the basics of OPC UA by means of theory and practical use cases from mechanical engineering.
