umati has new partner FIEMG – Federation of Industries of Minas Gerais

SENAI is now part of the umati community

What are your expect­a­tions regard­ing umati, what do you expect from the partnership?

The imple­ment­a­tion of tech­no­lo­gies for inter­op­er­ab­il­ity in the industry in Brazil is at an early stage and SENAI of Minas Gerais believes that the part­ner­ship with Umati can help to lever­age the use of this stand­ard­iz­a­tion, in order to allow com­mu­nic­a­tion between sys­tems inde­pend­ent of their man­u­fac­tur­ers. SENAI MG hopes to bring the inter­na­tion­al vis­ion of OPC-UA to our stu­dents and the industry we serve, hop­ing to be the entity that inducts the concept of iter­op­er­ab­il­ity of machines and equip­ment in the country.

What advant­ages does Umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

umati is a plat­form that offers access to qual­ity and excel­lent tech­nic­al inform­a­tion and doc­u­ment­a­tion and enables the exchange of inform­a­tion between dif­fer­ent part­ners, which will be import­ant for our experts and teach­ers to always be up to date. All of this will be very import­ant for SENAI, as it will be able to provide our indus­tri­al and edu­ca­tion­al com­munity with inform­a­tion about the dis­sem­in­a­tion of OPC-UA iter­op­er­ab­il­ity in Brazili­an industries.

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

The umati ini­ti­at­ive can sig­ni­fic­antly con­trib­ute to pop­ular­iz­ing the adop­tion of machine integ­ra­tion and com­mu­nic­a­tion stand­ards in the mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry. SENAI MG’s sup­port for this ini­ti­at­ive will be able to dis­sem­in­ate know­ledge and best prac­tices to com­pan­ies in the sec­tor, enabling the adop­tion of these stand­ards more widely and effect­ively. With stand­ard­ized and integ­rated com­mu­nic­a­tion, the industry can improve its effi­ciency, reduce costs and increase product qual­ity, becom­ing more com­pet­it­ive in the glob­al mar­ket. For these reas­ons, we eval­u­ate very pos­it­ively the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al industry with sup­port from SENAI MG.


SENAI Nation­al Ser­vice for Indus­tri­al Learn­ing — Region­al Depart­ment of the State of Minas Gerais.

We are the largest private edu­ca­tion and tech­no­logy net­work in Lat­in Amer­ica main­tained and man­aged by FIEMG – Fed­er­a­tion of Indus­tries of Minas Gerais. SENAI is loc­ated in Brazil and pro­motes tech­nic­al and pro­fes­sion­al edu­ca­tion, tech­no­lo­gic­al sup­port and innov­a­tion in the coun­try’s industry. In 2023, we will have 200,000 stu­dents on tech­nic­al courses up to post­gradu­ate stud­ies, in addi­tion to car­ry­ing out 1,200 tech­no­lo­gic­al con­sultan­cies, 55 innov­a­tion and devel­op­ment pro­jects and car­ry­ing out 365,000 tests and calibrations.
