EUROMAP is now partner of the umati community
EUROMAP is the European umbrella organisation of plastics and rubber machinery manufacturers and represents around 500 companies. The experts have been developing OPC UA Companion Specifications for this sector since 2014 and were thus one of the pioneers in the field of mechanical engineering. For internationalisation, a Joint Working Group with the OPC Foundation has been in place since 2019. In the meantime, specifications for various machine types have been published and more are in development. By integrating OPC for Machinery into new (and successively into existing) specifications, they become part of the world machine language.
What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
The benefits of OPC UA and Companion Specifications must be communicated to customers in a simple way. umati offers a good opportunity to show, especially through the dashboard, that standardisation makes cross-manufacturer and cross-machine networking much easier.
