About us

DESINA is an abbreviation for DistributEd and Standardised INstAllation technology for machine tools and manufacturing systems. DESINA is a specification for standardising electric, hydraulic and pneumatic components and their interconnection on one common platform for CNC controlled machine tools and manufacturing systems.

With DESINA you can limit the cost increasing and availability reducing variety of electric and fluidic installation on machinery and plants. DESINA specifies the overall installation system together with the required components to achieve a unique distributed control system independent from specific field-bus protocols and capable to operate in severe environments. Therefore DESINA is not another field-bus specification. WithDESINA compliant products changing from one field-bus technology to the other does not mean a re-engineering for the installation. All main field peripherals are derived from known and already proven technologies and are available now with compliant specification and harmonised interfaces.

The German Machine Tool Builders' Association (VDW) contracted a research and development project "Installation Technology in Machine Tools" to the Institute for Machine Tools and Economics (iwb) at the Technical University of Muenchen. The working group assisting the project consisted of representatives from the car manufacturing industry as well as component suppliers and machine tool industry. On the following pages you will find besides the technical information and specifications also important results from the survey about the economical benefits of DESINA.
