umati has new partner ModuleWorks GmbH

Mod­ule­Works GmbH is now part of the umati community

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

Mod­ern-day machine tools are not only pieces of state-of-the-art hard­ware but also highly soph­ist­ic­ated soft­ware sys­tems. High tur­bu­lence and lack of stand­ard­iz­a­tion lead to the devel­op­ment and imple­ment­a­tion of seem­ingly incom­pat­ible soft­ware archi­tec­tures that jeop­ard­ize adop­tion of new tech­no­lo­gies. Mod­ule­Works as the lead­ing tech­no­logy pro­vider for machine tool build­ers and CNC man­u­fac­tures is inter­ested in fos­ter­ing trans­par­ency of the mar­ket land­scape to enable smooth trans­ition to new func­tion­al­it­ies, such as real-time col­li­sion avoid­ance sys­tems and photoreal­ist­ic sim­u­la­tion tools.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

The umati ini­ti­at­ive is believed to be an excep­tion­al plat­form to exchange vis­ions and col­lab­or­ate on solv­ing exist­ing chal­lenges faced by machine tool build­ers and machine end-users. Mod­ule­Works expects to hear many voices that will provide a com­pre­hens­ive out­look of the cus­tom­er pain points to be addresses dur­ing our product development.

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

The list of umati par­ti­cipants is impress­ive. Basic­ally, almost all industry-rel­ev­ant names have already been labelled as umati part­ners. Umati can ease design and integ­ra­tion of the next gen­er­a­tion machinery into the future shop­floor operations.

About Mod­ule­Works GmbH

Mod­ule­Works GmbH was foun­ded in Aachen, Ger­many, in 2003 with the aim of provid­ing soft­ware com­pon­ents and ser­vices for the CAD/CAM industry. There are more than 200 employ­ees with the major­ity con­sist­ing of soft­ware developers focus­ing on the algorithm devel­op­ment for toolpath gen­er­a­tion and NC veri­fic­a­tion for addit­ive and sub­tract­ive machin­ing. The com­pany busi­ness mod­el is to devel­op lib­rar­ies and inter­faces for the integ­ra­tion in the products of industry part­ners, not end users. Mod­ule­Works cur­rently offers solu­tions ran­ging from 2 up to 6 axis machin­ing and con­tinu­ously expands its product port­fo­lio, includ­ing ones for machine tool and CNC builders.
