umati has new partner WEBER Schraubautomaten GmbH

WEBER Schraubauto­maten GmbH is now part of the umati community


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

umati is a plat­form on which com­pan­ies can find each oth­er who want to pull togeth­er. This is the man­u­fac­turer and plat­form-inde­pend­ent data con­tinu­ity. This is where the com­pan­ies that have learned that isol­ated solu­tions do not con­trib­ute to sus­tain­able suc­cess in the long term show them­selves. umati increases the level of aware­ness of these innov­at­ive com­pan­ies and estab­lishes con­tacts so that they can come together.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

As a man­u­fac­turer of devices and sys­tems for con­nec­tion tech­no­logy, the trans­fer of pro­cess data for doc­u­ment­a­tion and ana­lys­is has always been an essen­tial part of our scope of ser­vices. Our aim is always to provide inform­a­tion that is as open as pos­sible and access­ible to all user groups. By con­trib­ut­ing to the Com­pan­ion Spe­cific­a­tions based on OPC-UA, stand­ards in data exchange are cre­ated for both sides, mak­ing life easi­er for every­one. The CS OPC 40451–1 (OPC-UA for Tight­en­ing Sys­tems — Part 1) provides the inform­a­tion mod­el for this pur­pose, which provides invest­ment secur­ity for man­u­fac­tur­ers and users. Con­nec­tions can be cre­ated in less time, trans­par­ency and effi­ciency improve.

How do you assess the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing sector?

This is a neces­sary and con­clus­ive step. Only those who break down bar­ri­ers in com­mu­nic­a­tion and define stand­ards will be able to com­mu­nic­ate without borders.
