DEPRAG SCHULZ GMBH u. Co. is now part of the umati community
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.
