universal machine tool interface

umati: universal machine tool interface

There‘s no better connection than that of a common language – which is also true for machine tools. The easier they exchange and share information, the more efficient they are.

In a joint effort, 17 partners and VDW created umati (universal machine tool interface). It enables machine tools and peripherals to connect to customer-specific IT ecosystems – easy, secure, and seamless. umati is an open standard for machine tool users throughout the world. It serves to exploit new potentials for manufacturing of the future.

After launching the project in September 2017 at EMO Hannover, machine tool builders Chiron, DMG Mori, Emag, Grob Werke, Heller, Liebherr Verzahntechnik, Trumpf and United Grinding committed themselves to the working group. Application partners GF Machining Solutions, Pfiffner and control technology experts Beckhoff, Bosch Rexroth, Fanuc, Heidenhain, Siemens share their know-how as well as IGH Infotec AG and the ISW at Stuttgart university.

Individual mapping and transformation based on OPC UA

umati is based on an OPC UA companion specification. OPC UA is the ideal communication platform for different industrial devices due to its open data model. In addition, umati realizes customer or manufacturer specific mapping and transformation of parameters through standardized configuration.
