Which course is involved in mechanical engineering
BERLIN (Dow Jones) - The machine-builders want to use the Umati (Universal Machine Tool Interface) standard developed in Germany together with immediate effect and implement it worldwide. The Association of German Machine Tool Builders (VDW) and the Association of German Mechanical and Plant Engineering (VDMA) have agreed on this. "Cross-sector and cross-technology marketing brings our customers a giant step forward," said VDW Managing Director Wilfried Schäfer, explaining the new strategy during a joint press conference of the two associations in Frankfurt am Main.
The standard for data exchange based on Umati is the OPC UA communication platform. 17 VDW project partners have been involved in Umati development since September 2017, for example from electrical drive technology, plastic and rubber machines, industrial image processing, metallurgy, robotics and machine tools.
The aim of the two associations is to offer Umati as a uniform machine standard to suppliers all over the world. The first version is to be published this year. "We are already expecting the first specific products in the second half of this year that will provide customers with connectivity based on the OPC UA Specification for Machine Tools," said VDW Managing Director Schäfer.
