Solukon is now part of the umati community.

 

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

“Con­nectiv­ity of dif­fer­ent machines and con­sist­ent data col­lec­tion and eval­u­ation are the greatest chal­lenges in addit­ive man­u­fac­tur­ing at the moment. We expect lively exchange with experts of oth­er engin­eer­ing com­pan­ies and are pleased to share our know-how with­in the umati net­work. Togeth­er we want to take the next steps towards a true “plug and play” between the sys­tems, which means a con­sist­ent net­work­ing of machines regard­less of the soft­ware or IT system”says Andreas Hart­mann, CEO and CTO of Solukon.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

Digit­al integ­ra­tion and data-based qual­ity val­id­a­tion of clean­ing pro­cesses are main issues for our cus­tom­ers. There­fore, Solukon recently launched the Digit­al Fact­ory Tool. By join­ing umati Solukon is demon­strat­ing its cus­tom­ers a true will­ing­ness to push the digit­al machine integ­ra­tion for­ward –even bey­ond its own product, the Digit­al Fact­ory Tool. We under­stand umati not only as a mar­ket­ing tool but as a unique oppor­tun­ity for net­work­ing and know­ledge exchange.

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

We rate this very pos­it­ive. Includ­ing all divi­sions of engin­eer­ing enables more “out of the box”-thinking.
