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

Inter­faces and stand­ard­isa­tions only exist if they are per­ceived, accep­ted and applied. By rep­res­ent­ing the part­ners, umati makes a sig­ni­fic­ant con­tri­bu­tion to this. Accord­ingly, the expect­a­tion is that as many com­pan­ies as pos­sible deal with the cent­ral tasks of digit­al­isa­tion and net­work­ing. 

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your cus­tom­ers? 

As a man­u­fac­turer of screw­driv­ing tech­no­logy and solu­tions for auto­ma­tion, we were con­fron­ted with demands for an OPC UA inter­face at a very early stage. In the work­ing group OPC UA for Tight­en­ing Sys­tems, lead­ing sup­pli­ers of screw­driv­ing tech­no­logy have developed a com­pre­hens­ive first part of the Com­pan­ion Spe­cific­a­tions in a short time. umati makes this ini­ti­at­ive vis­ible for part­ners and cus­tom­ers and thus fun­da­ment­ally pro­motes the estab­lish­ment of a new stand­ard for inform­a­tion exchange. 

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

This can only be wel­comed. Cer­tainly, some effort is required, but the advant­ages and oppor­tun­it­ies are imme­di­ately appar­ent. 



DEPRAG is one of the world’s lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of screw­driv­ing tech­no­logy, feed­ing tech­no­logy, assembly sys­tems, air motors, air tools and tur­bine gen­er­at­ors. For more than 90 years, the fam­ily-owned com­pany based in Amberg, Ger­many, has been devel­op­ing highly engin­eered products. Today, the DEPRAG group is rep­res­en­ted in over 50 coun­tries with around 760 employ­ees. 

As a glob­ally act­ive com­pany, DEPRAG is a reli­able part­ner to industry — espe­cially for the auto­mot­ive, elec­tro­mobil­ity, elec­tric­al engin­eer­ing, tele­com­mu­nic­a­tions and mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing sec­tors. Through inter­na­tion­al pro­duc­tion sites and a net­work of exclus­ive part­ners in all import­ant indus­tri­al coun­tries of the world, the DEPRAG group com­bines its entire know-how with the region­al exper­i­ence of its loc­al part­ners for the bene­fit of the cus­tom­er.
