By 29.08.2022August 31st, 2022Partner News

Kur­tz GmbH & Co. KG is now part of the umati community 

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

We expect Umati to kick-start UPC-UA util­iz­a­tion at our customers.
Using UPC UA com­pan­ion specs as a found­a­tion, we expect a more stand­ard­ized & effi­cient use of OPC-UA.
Hav­ing this in mind, Umati can be an import­ant key tech­no­logy in the Industry 4.0 strategy of our customers.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your cus­tom­ers? 

Redu­cing com­plex­ity for our cus­tom­ers is a huge advant­age of Umati. OPC UA itself has a great poten­tial, umati makes this poten­tial exper­i­ence­able for everyone. 
Umati will be our gate­way to improve pro­cesses, add value and increase reli­ab­il­ity through data.

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

The expan­sion to the mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry is a innov­at­ive and con­sequent step.
Mech­an­ic­al engin­eers can improve and adapt their designs based on real life data.
Espe­cially for com­pan­ies without a strong soft­ware back­ground, it was very chal­len­ging to gath­er & use this data.
Umati will lead to bet­ter and more focused mech­an­ic­al designs by tear­ing down walls between mach­an­ic­al & soft­ware engineering.
