R. F. Celada Spa is now part of the umati community
What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
Working with machinery equipped with various operating systems, we look forward to Umati as the future of manufacturing data exchange. Thanks to the unified interface, we are convinced that the future of communication between machinery and systems / people will be extremely rapid, managing to unify proprietary languages of individual numerical control manufacturers in a single layer. This will make it possible to create interconnections more efficiently, faster, and without compatibility constraints.
What advantages does umati offer your company and your customers?
The Umati consortium allows our company to interact at a high level with other international companies that, like us, are working in the interconnection of machinery and the development of dedicated software. The uniform interface will allow us to offer our customers plug and play solutions, overcoming compatibility limits with proprietary protocols, and providing as well to our end customers a development tool for customized applications.
How do you evaluate the expansion of the umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering industry?
We look forward for the expansion of Umati to the entire mechanical engineering industry. We strongly believe that unified interfaces and a standardized protocol will finally give a holistic push towards connecting machinery in an Industry 4.0 perspective. This will also allow small companies to reach levels of deep interconnection that are only seen today in large companies.
