umati has new partner Yaskawa Europe GmbH

Yaskawa Europe GmbH is now part of the umati community

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

It is in Yaskawa’s DNA to focus on part­ner­ship. In robot­ics, this is com­pletely nor­mal and has been prac­tised for a long time. After all, a robot always works togeth­er with oth­er devices. And the bet­ter an inter­face works, the easi­er it is to set up and the more pre­cise or reli­able it is, the bet­ter the over­all res­ult and thus cus­tom­er sat­is­fac­tion. For us, umati is an oppor­tun­ity to be at the fore­front of estab­lish­ing stand­ard inter­faces and to make it easi­er for all part­ners or users of umati to use our robots.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

Umati as a net­work of course first of all offers a net­work effect and thus fast and wide dis­tri­bu­tion of a col­lab­or­a­tion pos­sib­il­ity. The fact that many oth­er peri­phery sup­pli­ers such as grip­pers, feed­ing solu­tions, safety tech­no­logy or sensor tech­no­logy man­u­fac­tur­ers also rely on umati

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

Of course, we assess the expan­sion to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing sec­tor extremely pos­it­ively because it opens up new pos­sib­il­it­ies for all par­ti­cipants. In a world that is becom­ing more and more com­plex, it helps to rely on stand­ards because this cre­ates new applic­a­tion pos­sib­il­it­ies for robots in mech­an­ic­al engineering.
