umati has new partner GEWATEC GmbH und Co KG

GEWATEC GmbH und Co KG is now part of the umati community


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

While our cus­tom­ers have rules and stand­ards for most pro­cesses, there are unfor­tu­nately very few stand­ards in the IT sec­tor. In the area of ​​inter­faces in par­tic­u­lar, the lack of stand­ards repeatedly res­ults in high and, to a cer­tain extent, unne­ces­sary effort to con­nect sys­tems with one to anoth­er. With umati, we see a great oppor­tun­ity in the shop floor area to con­nect peri­pher­als quickly and easily.

  • What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

It is not uncom­mon for the costs of con­nect­ing two pro­duc­tion sys­tems to be dis­pro­por­tion­ately high in rela­tion to the pur­chase of the actu­al soft­ware. Espe­cially when it comes to ret­ro­fit­ting, the cus­tom­ers have to pay dearly for the con­nectiv­ity mod­ules after­wards. If all man­u­fac­tur­ers were to fol­low an umati stand­ard, we and our cus­tom­ers would have the opor­tun­nity of con­nect­ing pro­duc­tion sys­tems via plug-and-work in the future. Cus­tom­ers do not have to deal with man­u­fac­turer-spe­cif­ic inter­faces, sup­pli­ers can make com­mit­ments to con­nectiv­ity much more quickly.

  • How do you rate the exten­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing sector?

Inform­a­tion about the man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cess is primar­ily col­lec­ted where the parts are pro­duced – at the machine. If the digit­iz­a­tion of pro­duc­tion is to suc­ceed in the future, simple, stand­ard­ized access to the pro­cess and pro­duc­tion data is required. umati has the poten­tial to become the stand­ard MES con­nect­or in the future.
