BBM Maschinenbau und Vertriebs GmbH is now part of the umati community
- What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
Thanks to umati, we have the opportunity to actively contribute to the development and transparency of new standards for the blow molding industry. This enables completely new ways of networking machines and systems and making the data valuable through their interface and usable for machine manufacturers and customers in an easy way.
- What advantages does umati offer your company and your customers?
By working together with umati, we are able to standardize and simplify the provision and processing of machine data. This is an investment in the future, in which the processing of acquired data by artificial intelligences will become commonplace to fully optimize processes for our customers.
- How do you evaluate the expansion of the umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering industry?
It is a necessity that a standard with a common basis is developed across all machine types. Communication with machines can thus take place in a common “language”, which is particularly worthwhile for customers. The production of tomorrow speaks OPC UA.
