LASERVORM GMBH is now part of the umati community
What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
“For years, the data connection of our laser machines via proprietary interfaces to higher-level systems (MES, etc.) has cost us many man-weeks of work per year in terms of programmer and commissioning resources, that are always in short supply. For us, the umati standard brings with it the prospect of a significantly less time-consuming and faster realisation of this task, which is now part of everyday life”.
What advantages does umati offer your company and your customers?
“With establishing the umati standard, the amount of work will shrink from many man-weeks to man-hours. As a result, costs will decrease significantly for both us and our customers. The realisation times for integration will shorten considerably and a higher quality standard of the solutions can also be expected”.
How do you assess the expansion of the umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering sector?
“Positive. The use cases addressed with umati are not only important for machine tools in everyday workflow. Especially for companies with a large production spectrum, a uniform interface proves to be a great process advantage.”
