Join the umati WebEvent to experience live, how data from different machines confluences – hands on!

Decem­ber 16 and 17, the umati (uni­ver­sal machine tech­no­logy inter­face) com­munity enters the next level for prov­ing con­nectiv­ity through its stand­ards. The umati oper­at­ors VDW and VDMA present an online event fea­tur­ing expert talks and live demon­stra­tions by five core part­ners from the machine tool group (Grob, Heller, Lieb­herr-Verzahn­tech­nikTrumpf and United Grind­ing Group). 

Dur­ing the umati WebEvent, these part­ners will present products integ­rating the func­tion­al­ity of the OPC UA for Machine Tools (OPC UA 40501–1) and OPC UA for Machinery (OPC UA 40001–1) spe­cific­a­tions for the first time. Both spe­cific­a­tions were pub­lished in Septem­ber 2020 and con­sid­er­ably sim­plify the con­nec­tion of machine tools to pro­duc­tion-related IT sys­tems. 

umati is a com­munity of the machine build­ing indus­tries and their cus­tom­ers for the pro­mo­tion and adop­tion of open, stand­ardised inter­faces based on the glob­al pro­duc­tion lan­guage OPC UA. umati facil­it­ates the data exchange between machines, com­pon­ents and install­a­tions and their easy, seam­less and secure integ­ra­tion into cus­tom­er- and user-spe­cif­ic IT eco­sys­tems. It’s an ini­ti­at­ive to exploit new poten­tials for the pro­duc­tion of the future as even in the world of machinery there’s no bet­ter con­nec­tion than a com­mon lan­guage.
