umati has new partner Intelligent Sensing and Digital Manufacturing Lab., National Taiwan University

ISDM is now part of the umati community

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

Through UMATI, our research team hopes to foster co-oper­a­tion between indus­tries, and we will act as a tech­no­logy pro­vider for man­u­fac­tur­ers, sup­pli­ers and users.

UMATI is expec­ted to drive tech­no­lo­gic­al innov­a­tion and digit­al trans­form­a­tion in the machine tool industry.

We will provide integ­ra­tion of advanced tech­no­lo­gies such as Inter­net of Things, Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence and Cloud Com­put­ing into their operations.

This integ­ra­tion not only enables real-time mon­it­or­ing and pre­dict­ive main­ten­ance, but also opens up oppor­tun­it­ies for new ser­vices and busi­ness models.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

UMATI offers sig­ni­fic­ant advant­ages to our com­pany and cus­tom­ers by stand­ard­iz­ing com­mu­nic­a­tion pro­to­cols and inter­faces with­in the machine tool industry.

For our Lab, UMATI facil­it­ates seam­less integ­ra­tion of diverse tech­no­lo­gies, stream­lines work­flows, and enhances pro­ductiv­ity. This inter­op­er­ab­il­ity also enables us to avoid vendor lock-in and eas­ily adapt to evolving mar­ket trends.

For our cus­tom­ers, UMATI ensures com­pat­ib­il­ity, trans­par­ency, and reli­ab­il­ity, allow­ing them to optim­ize man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses, improve qual­ity, and reduce costs. Over­all, UMATI drives effi­ciency, innov­a­tion, and com­pet­it­ive­ness for both our com­pany and our customers.

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

Expand­ing the UMATI ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry is a sig­ni­fic­ant step towards stand­ard­iz­ing com­mu­nic­a­tion pro­to­cols and inter­faces across a broad­er spec­trum of man­u­fac­tur­ing sectors.

This expan­sion fosters inter­op­er­ab­il­ity, col­lab­or­a­tion, and innov­a­tion bey­ond the machine tool industry, enabling seam­less integ­ra­tion of advanced tech­no­lo­gies and diverse sys­tems. By align­ing with oth­er industry ini­ti­at­ives and organ­iz­a­tions, UMATI can fur­ther drive glob­al stand­ard­iz­a­tion efforts and facil­it­ate the adop­tion of Industry 4.0 tech­no­lo­gies worldwide.

Over­all, the expan­sion of UMATI holds the poten­tial to revo­lu­tion­ize the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry, enhan­cing effi­ciency, pro­ductiv­ity, and com­pet­it­ive­ness across vari­ous sectors.

About Intel­li­gent Sens­ing and Digit­al Man­u­fac­tur­ing Lab., Nation­al Taiwan University.

Intel­li­gent Sens­ing and Digit­al Man­u­fac­tur­ing Lab, Nation­al Taiwan Uni­ver­sity is led by ten­ured dis­tin­guished pro­fess­or Wen-Yuh Jywe. We are a research team of 35 full-time engin­eers ded­ic­ated to the devel­op­ment of smart man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­no­lo­gies for imple­ment­a­tion in the man­u­fac­tur­ing industry chain. In the past five years, our research team has cooper­ated with the devel­op­ment trend of smart machinery and imple­men­ted many gov­ern­ment­al tar­get pro­jects (more than 50 man­u­fac­tur­ers, smart man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­tries (includ­ing: aerospace, auto­mot­ive, staple mer­chand­ise, sys­tem integ­ra­tion com­pan­ies, IT / ICT com­pan­ies)), and has been work­ing on the imple­ment­a­tion of smart man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­no­lo­gies. Smart man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­tries (includ­ing: aerospace, auto­mot­ive, staple mer­chand­ise, sys­tem integ­ra­tion com­pan­ies, IT / ICT com­pan­ies), to help the domest­ic man­u­fac­tur­ing industry indus­tri­al chain towards smart man­u­fac­tur­ing transformation.

So far, the research team has guided more than 100 gradu­ate stu­dents (includ­ing 8 PhDs) and 250 col­lege stu­dents to work in the related met­al pro­cessing industry; Recent 5 years gov­ern­ment fund­ing: 19 million(USD). Com­pleted more than 70 tech­no­logy trans­fers with 2.34 million(USD). The research team has con­duc­ted more than 85 industry-fun­ded research pro­jects, with industry fund­ing of more than 5 million(USD); gran­ted 138 pat­ents (22 for­eign) and 32 new pat­ents; and pub­lished more than 80 inter­na­tion­al journ­als and 200 sem­in­ar papers. Through tech­no­logy trans­fer, com­mis­sioned research, and tal­ent cul­tiv­a­tion, we have made spe­cif­ic con­tri­bu­tions to the domest­ic industry.

Our R&D has entered into the integ­ra­tion of applic­a­tion areas includ­ing pro­duc­tion pro­cess digit­isa­tion, man­u­fac­tur­ing equip­ment digit­isa­tion and intel­li­gence, inspec­tion intel­li­gence, and pro­cess qual­ity con­trol intelligence. 

We are guided by the needs of the industry. Focus­ing on the man­u­fac­tur­ing industry chain, we devel­op M2M plat­forms, multi-axis machine cal­ib­ra­tion, com­pon­ent IoT, pro­duc­tion his­tory, nano plat­forms, and oth­er mod­ules that are urgently needed by the industry, and we provide a Total Solu­tion for the trans­form­a­tion of the industry from the sensor end to the whole line of intel­li­gence from the phys­ic­al end.
