SOTEC is now member of the umati community.
What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
Every day we experience the value of data for our clients. This is quite independent of the field in which the clients are active. Easy accessibility and clear understanding have the greatest impact on the outcome. In our opinion, umati is the industry standard that enables machine builders to describe machines and their capabilities in such a uniform way that Industrie 4.0 solutions can be realized regardless of the specific machine used. Even though Industry 4.0 is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, it has not yet been implemented on a broad scale. For us, umati is an enabler for small and medium-sized companies, for scaling and for everything that follows. A common language or mutual understanding of the communicated information has always been a key to success since time began and it is again here.
What advantages does umati offer your company and your customers?
umati means that we can develop solutions in projects and scale them together with our clients without much effort. With umati, you get the missing piece of the puzzle for the realization of new expanded product portfolios, process optimizations, across manufacturer boundaries, also for new business models in corresponding industry sectors.
How do you evaluate the expansion of the Umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering industry?
Incredibly positive. We know of no reason not to continue using a recipe for success.
