umati has new partner Quinx AG

Quinx AG is now part of the umati community 

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

We are con­fron­ted with the diversity of a machine park every day. You might think we have an interest in keep­ing it that way because we earn money with it. But we see it dif­fer­ently: the non-exist­ence of a stand­ard for machine inter­faces blocks the devel­op­ment of the industry. It increases com­plex­ity and makes every Industry 4.0 pro­ject unne­ces­sar­ily expens­ive. It is time for an ini­ti­at­ive like umati to pre­vail and for Industry 4.0 not to remain just the­ory.” (Stephan Schüp­bach, CEO Quinx AG) 

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your cus­tom­ers? 

umati reduces pro­ject costs and makes Indus­trie 4.0 pro­jects afford­able even for SMEs. Both in the col­lec­tion of pro­duc­tion data and in auto­ma­tion, umati is a great advant­age. Until now, almost every machine has been a spe­cial case. With umati, it can be con­nec­ted without expert know­ledge and integ­rated into an over­all pro­cess.” (Stephan Schüp­bach, CEO Quinx AG) 

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

As inter­na­tion­al sup­pli­ers of sys­tem solu­tions in the mech­an­ic­al industry, we con­sider it import­ant that umati does not remain a purely European ini­ti­at­ive. It should not hap­pen that umati becomes a dif­fer­en­ti­at­or for the European machine man­u­fac­tur­ers against the Amer­ic­an or Asi­an ones.” (Stephan Schüp­bach, CEO Quinx AG) 


About Quinx AG

Quinx AG has been devel­op­ing and selling sys­tem solu­tions for the mech­an­ic­al industry for more than 25 years. As early as 1992, Quinx net­worked CNC machines via data inter­face and enabled data exchange between the machine and the cent­ral serv­er. The seam­less integ­ra­tion of the sys­tems is a cent­ral issue for Quinx AG. Quinx there­fore main­tains an open inter­face policy. One example of this is QMIP — Quinx Man­u­fac­tur­ing Inform­a­tion Plat­form: QMIP col­lects pro­duc­tion data from machines in real time. Applic­a­tions such as ERP, BI tool (Man­age­ment Cock­pit), MES or CAQ can access this data at any time via pre-defined inter­faces.
