EXAPT Systemtechnik GmbH is now part of the umati community
What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
For us as a software provider in the machining industry, it is extremely important to connect different software as well as hardware components with our tools. A uniform interface holds enormous potential for us in development and for our customers in increasing economic efficiency.
The future exchange and cooperation with umati partners and suppliers can be raised to the next level by this standardization of the interface. This is not only a quantum leap for our products, but also an enormous benefit for our customers.
What advantages does umati offer your company and your customers?
Thanks to umati and the associated OPC UA interface, we are not only able to connect machines, presetting devices, storage systems and much more to our system, but we are also able to import more data than ever before from these machines back into our system. This data and information can be used in EXAPTcam & EXAPTcontrol to optimize processes even further. And, if necessary, also correct them independently. This is the next step towards AI.
How do you assess the expansion of the umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering sector?
Competition among the respective companies is healthy, because it ensures constant further development.
However, if you want to live the idea of Industry 4.0, you need partnerships. The last few years have shown what can be achieved when a solution is pursued jointly with the customer. Be it in the conceptual design of interfaces or the implementation of machining technology in software. Therefore the idea of umati is the only right approach for us to offer our customers the optimal solutions together. We are happy to be a part of this community from now on.
