umati has new partner NUM AG

NUM AG is now part of the umati community

What expect­a­tions do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership? 
“NUM, being a part­ner of umati, will gain vis­ib­il­ity both at machine build­er and end-user.
As more com­pan­ies join umati the stronger the accept­ance of the umati inter­face gets. To join an organ­iz­a­tion which aims to stand­ard­ize a gen­er­ic com­mu­nic­a­tion pro­tocol will help the dis­tri­bu­tion of the pro­tocol itself”

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers? 
The stand­ard­iz­a­tion of pro­to­cols sim­pli­fy the machine’s integ­ra­tion in Industry 4.0 infra­struc­tures; this will help end users, machine build­ers and CNC man­u­fac­turer like NUM.

How do you assess the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing sector?
The umati ini­ti­at­ive is a great step for­ward to stand­ard­ize the inter­face for extens­ive machine and pro­cess data col­lec­tion. End-users usu­ally have to main­tain a com­plex man­u­fac­tur­ing envir­on­ment by oper­at­ing machine tools from dif­fer­ent brands with dif­fer­ent con­trols. umati will be the game changer and will make the dif­fer­ence for an over­all shop-floor  imple­ment­a­tion of  Industry 4.0 solutions.

About NUM

NUM has more than 60 years of exper­i­ence in the auto­ma­tion of CNC machines and is one of the pion­eers in this field.
We devel­op the most com­plex and cus­tom­ized CNC solu­tions that guar­an­tee max­im­um added value for both the machine man­u­fac­turer and the end-user. We developed a large num­ber of spe­cif­ic solu­tions for diverse indus­tries. From these, we cre­ated ground­break­ing total solu­tions for demand­ing applic­a­tions. As an inter­na­tion­al com­pany with around 300 employ­ees and headquar­ters in Switzer­land, we have many full ser­vice loc­a­tions around the world. This world­wide pres­ence allows us to be geo­graph­ic­ally close to the machine man­u­fac­turer to provide the engin­eer­ing ser­vices required for his needs.
