umati has new partner KEBA Industrial Automation

KEBA Indus­tri­al Auto­ma­tion is now part of the umati community


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

Espe­cially with the focus on I4.0 or smart pro­duc­tion, the exchange of data between machines and plants via stand­ard­ized cross-man­u­fac­turer inter­faces is abso­lutely neces­sary. Through the umati part­ner­ship we become part of a net­work of experts and can thus fol­low and help shape the devel­op­ment of fur­ther standards.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

We value both: the exchange of exper­i­ence with experts as well as an expan­ded net­work in which we can present our know-how and technologies.

Our cus­tom­ers bene­fit from the simple stand­ard­ized integ­ra­tion of KEBA com­pon­ents into exist­ing sys­tems — plug & play!

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

Com­mu­nic­a­tion between machines but also with high­er-level net­works is becom­ing increas­ingly import­ant for the real­iz­a­tion of highly flex­ible pro­duc­tion sys­tems. In addi­tion, there are AI-sup­por­ted applic­a­tions in the area of pre­dict­ive main­ten­ance or orches­tra­tion, i.e. the dis­tri­bu­tion of tasks to machines with the skills required for pro­duc­tion. These applic­a­tions can hardly be real­ized without stand­ard­ized, cross-man­u­fac­turer data exchange. Stand­ard­iz­a­tion is there­fore the basis for I4.0.
