umati (universal machine technology interface) is a community of the machine building industries and their customers for the promotion and adoption of open, standardized interfaces based on OPC UA.
… and what is OPC-UA?
OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture) is a standardized communication protocol for industrial automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) applications. It enables secure and reliable data exchange between machines, systems, and enterprise applications. The communication through OPC US works regardless of the hardware, software, or operating system used.
What expectations does Textechno have of umati and the partnership?
With the partnership Textechno underlines the need for open, feature-rich, and certified communication standards for tight integration between production machines, testing instruments and control systems. A strong partnership will help explore the potential and shape the future of integration using OPC-UA.
What advantages does umati offer Textechno and its customers?
Umati allows us to showcase integration and integrity of our instruments in a diverse production environment. Our customers are assured of a flawless integration of our devices. At the same time, the potential of in-depth interconnectivity is highlighted.
How does Textechno evaluate the expansion of the umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering industry?
Textechno is frequently asked by its customers to interface with their proprietary production control and execution systems. For us it is important that the OPC-UA standard is promoted across the industry and that a common understanding is formed among those who implement OPC-UA for instance by making broad use of companion specifications.Back to Overview
