umati has new partner profeeba GmbH

pro­feeba GmbH is now part of the umati community

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

the umati ini­ti­at­ive solves one of the most import­ant pro­duc­tion prob­lems of today. It ensures stand­ard­ised com­mu­nic­a­tion and trans­par­ency. The umati part­ner­ship sup­ports product design and is, as it were, an import­ant net­work on the sub­ject of digit­al­isa­tion. With the sup­port of umati, pro­feeba GmbH would like to place OPC UA products on the mar­ket in a more tar­geted man­ner and fur­ther advance stand­ard­ised com­mu­nic­a­tion in the digit­al­isa­tion of mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing products.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

umati gen­er­ates trust. Being an umati part­ner and offer­ing OPC UA products such as the pro­fee­DASH app and pro­fee­BASE cre­ates a com­mon tech­no­lo­gic­al added value for our cus­tom­ers. The stand­ards ensure faster integ­ra­tion and cheap­er products, as the devel­op­ment of dif­fer­ent inter­faces will no longer be neces­sary in the future. Import­ant machine inform­a­tion (OEE) is thus avail­able quickly and cost-effect­ively. The pro­fee­DASH app pro­cesses the data imme­di­ately and inde­pend­ently of the man­u­fac­turer and machine type. Man­aging dir­ect­ors, pro­duc­tion man­agers, sales staff and ser­vice tech­ni­cians thus receive the data they cur­rently need.umati is expec­ted to give a sim­il­ar boost to the mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing, robot­ics, PDA and ERP mar­kets as it did in 1996 with the intro­duc­tion of USB. The very large num­ber of well-known umati part­ners already points to this.

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

The stand­ard­isa­tion of machine com­mu­nic­a­tion makes data avail­able faster and more pre­cisely. Early, simple error ana­lys­is leads to optim­isa­tion and sav­ings poten­tial and improves pro­duc­tion pro­cesses qual­it­at­ively and quant­it­at­ively. World­wide net­work­ing of machine parks has many advant­ages. The uni­form spe­cific­a­tion of the most import­ant mas­ter data (man­u­fac­turer, machine type, loc­a­tion, seri­al num­ber, etc.) is the most import­ant advant­age in our view. The expan­sion massively saves our envir­on­ment and our resources.

About pro­feeba GmbH

pro­feeba GmbH is a start-up of Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Dirk Euhus from Soltau. After suc­cess­fully com­plet­ing his stud­ies in pre­ci­sion engin­eer­ing, Dirk Euhus gained a wide range of exper­i­ence in renowned com­pan­ies (mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing, meas­ure­ment tech­no­logy, die cast­ing). Among oth­er things, he has suc­cess­fully dealt with the top­ic of digit­al­isa­tion with OPC / OPC UA in mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing for 15 years. pro­feeba GmbH offers pro­fes­sion­al sup­port to com­pan­ies that do not have OPC UA core com­pet­en­cies in-house. All pro­feeba GmbH sys­tems sup­port the latest OPC UA Com­pan­ion Spe­cific­a­tion Stand­ards and ensure con­flict-free data com­mu­nic­a­tion. As an umati part­ner, pro­feeba GmbH is act­ively work­ing on the fur­ther devel­op­ment of the OPC UA Com­pan­ion Spe­cific­a­tion MachineTool OPC 40501–1. In addi­tion, we advise com­pan­ies on the con­tent of the research allow­ance, a new gov­ern­ment fund­ing for your research pro­jects. We sup­port cross-sec­tor com­pan­ies and tax con­sult­ants in the neces­sary steps to obtain this cer­ti­fic­ate, ret­ro­act­ively from 2020.
