umati has new partner 247FactoryNet

247FactoryNet is now part of the umati community

What expect­a­tions do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?

Dr Daniel Groß­mann: Mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing has immense poten­tial in a net­worked industry. How­ever, this requires stand­ard­isa­tion in order to reduce the integ­ra­tion effort. We expect the Umati ini­ti­at­ive to unite the man­u­fac­tur­ers for the cre­ation of stand­ards. In the part­ner­ship with Umati, we would like to con­trib­ute our expert­ise in the area of OPC UA in order to quickly arrive at prac­tic­al solutions.”

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

Dr Daniel Groß­mann: “Both we as a sys­tem integ­rat­or and sup­pli­er of digit­al­isa­tion solu­tions and our cus­tom­ers bene­fit from simple, man­u­fac­turer-inde­pend­ent integ­ra­tion via an OPC UA inform­a­tion mod­el. This allows us to focus on value-adding work with the data instead of hav­ing to spend a lot of effort on data acquisition.”

How do you assess the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing sector?

Dr Daniel Groß­mann: “In my opin­ion, stand­ard­isa­tion is cru­cial for the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing sec­tor in order to quickly imple­ment digit­isa­tion ini­ti­at­ives. From that point of view, the focus on the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing sec­tor is right and important.”
