umati has new partner Dr. Heinrich Messtechnik GmbH

Dr. Hein­rich Mess­tech­nik GmbH is now part of the umati community

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

Through the part­ner­ship with umati, we as a man­u­fac­turer of meas­ure­ment tech­no­logy see the glob­al con­cen­tra­tion on the machine data of our (inter)national cus­tom­ers — inde­pend­ent of industry and location.
Togeth­er with our cus­tom­ers, we are striv­ing for a com­pre­hens­ive sup­ply of all rel­ev­ant machine data, which is ensured by the dis­sem­in­a­tion and use of open inter­face stand­ards in the form of OPC UA. By imple­ment­ing this on the Schneider meas­ur­ing machines and the com­mu­nic­a­tion of the dif­fer­ent machines with each oth­er, we offer our cus­tom­ers the secur­ity of a simple, seam­less, eco­nom­ic­al and secure exchange of information.

what advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

Thanks to the uni­ver­sal machine tool inter­face (umati) and OPC UA Com­pan­ion Spe­cific­a­tion, we see the pos­sib­il­ity of eas­ily integ­rat­ing machines and oth­er pro­duc­tion sys­tems into high­er-level sys­tems thanks to “con­nec­ted devices” in machine con­struc­tion, which cre­ates trans­par­ency and effi­cient work. Data from the machines becomes read­able via inter­faces and the con­nec­tion sends out defined data (pre­vi­ously para­met­erised from the basic struc­ture), which is imme­di­ately under­stood and read cor­rectly by the receiv­er. Costs are reduced, espe­cially through the rap­id real­isa­tion of cus­tom­ised pro­jects, as well as down­stream and related costs, such as the sig­ni­fic­ant reduc­tion of labour.
In the midst of the infra­struc­ture of digit­al­isa­tion, net­works and the neces­sary con­nectiv­ity, Dr. Hein­rich Schneider Mess­tech­nik ensures its cus­tom­ers that they can eas­ily access their data from their machines.
Last but not least, we are also happy to par­ti­cip­ate in a joint, strong and vis­ible mar­ket­ing pres­ence through vari­ous ele­ments of pub­lic relations.

How do you eval­u­ate the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry?

Thanks to umati, all machines are giv­en a voice that can exchange and eval­u­ate machine data across the board through the inter­face with OPC UA Com­par­is­on Spe­cific­a­tions. At the same time, the umati com­munity ensures the use, mar­ket­ing and dis­sem­in­a­tion of OPC UA Com­pan­ion Spe­cific­a­tions across the entire machinery and plant engin­eer­ing sec­tor and at the same time helps to achieve great­er vis­ib­il­ity. The com­mu­nic­at­ive inter­ac­tion between man­u­fac­turer and cus­tom­er sim­ul­tan­eously provides applic­a­tion examples (use cases) and the address­ing of end cus­tom­ers. Thanks to its numer­ous part­ners, Umati attracts a high degree of atten­tion and forms a jointly cooper­at­ive, strong mar­ket­ing, whereby cus­tom­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers par­ti­cip­ate. Umati is a fun­da­ment­al part of act­ively shap­ing the eco­sys­tem and con­trib­ut­ing to con­nec­ted pro­duc­tion and Industry 4.0. The feed­back from our cus­tom­ers time that we are on the right track and numer­ous best prac­tice cases under­line this sustainably.

About Dr. Hein­rich Mess­tech­nik GmbH

As a sup­pli­er of high-pre­ci­sion optic­al and multi-sensor meas­ur­ing tech­no­logy, we have been suc­cess­fully lead­ing the Ger­man and inter­na­tion­al mar­kets for over 75 years. With our 95 employ­ees, Schneider Mess­tech­nik is one of the first points of con­tact when it comes to high-pre­ci­sion meas­ur­ing machines for shafts, 2D and 3D meas­ur­ing tasks. The innov­at­ive devel­op­ments from our com­pany are used in almost every industry, from A for auto­mot­ive to Z for sub­con­tract­ing; from Asia to the USA, from Ham­burg to Tokyo, all around the globe. High-qual­ity stand­ard equip­ment, indi­vidu­ally adap­ted, or spe­cial solu­tions ensure the sat­is­fac­tion of end cus­tom­ers and guar­an­tee their com­pet­it­ive­ness. Above-aver­age qual­ity stand­ards guar­an­tee first-class products for our demand­ing customers.
