umati has new partner SOTEC

By 19.02.2021May 5th, 2021Partner News

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.
