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.
