umati has new partner Mahr GmbH

Mahr GmbH is now part of the umati community 

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

The umati com­munity intens­i­fies the exchange between par­ti­cip­at­ing com­pan­ies in mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing and raises the OPC UA stand­ard to a high­er level. Pro­duc­tion meas­ure­ment tech­no­logy is an import­ant part of mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing. We expect a more sus­tain­able real­iz­a­tion of stand­ard­ized com­mu­nic­a­tion via OPC UA through umati. This will make the added value of new digit­al ser­vices in mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing avail­able to our cus­tom­ers more quickly and eas­ily.  

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers? 

Open stand­ards are the pre­requis­ite for digit­al net­work­ing of pro­duc­tion. This will res­ult in products and ser­vices that make pro­duc­tion pro­cesses sim­pler, clear­er and more effi­cient.  

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

Many vis­ions of the digit­al trans­form­a­tion, such as the “smart fact­ory,” will only be real­ized if machines from dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers in all areas of mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing can inter­act with each oth­er. Stand­ard­ized inter­faces are a cru­cial pre­requis­ite for this inter­op­er­ab­il­ity. 

About Mahr GmbH

Mahr is a glob­ally oper­at­ing, medi­um-sized fam­ily-owned com­pany focus­ing on the devel­op­ment, man­u­fac­ture and sale of pro­duc­tion meas­ure­ment tech­no­logy, meter­ing and mix­ing pumps and ball bear­ing guides. The Mahr Group employs around 1900 people in more than 60 coun­tries.      

Start­ing as a small fam­ily busi­ness in Ess­lin­gen, Ger­many, Mahr has stood for innov­at­ive products and ser­vices for over 160 years. As a lead­ing com­pany, Mahr has evolved from vis­ion­ary pion­eer to glob­al play­er. The employ­ees are proud of hav­ing achieved and accom­pan­ied many tech­nic­al mile­stones and we will con­tin­ue to pur­sue this claim for them­selves – while being ready for the new tech­no­lo­gies of the future.
