universal machine tool interface

umati: universal machine tool interface

The easier machine tools exchange and share information, the more efficient they are. umati enables machine tools and peripherals to connect to customer-specific IT ecosystems.

Connectivity is key for manufacturing in the 21st century. It means getting data in and out of devices and software systems – easy, secure and seamless.

For the benefit of machine tool users and the machine tool industry itself, umati tackles this issue by setting an open standard throughout the world. umati serves to exploit new potentials for manufacturing of the future by:

  • Simplifying the effort for machine tool connection to customer-specific IT infrastructures and ecosystems.
  • Reducing costs through faster realization of customer specific projects.

umati was created in 2018 in a joint effort by VDW,
the German machine tool builders’ association, and 17
partners.

umati is still under development. It aims to provide

  1. an OPC UA Companion Specification to define globally applicable semantics for machine tools
  2. Communication Default Requirements for the implementation of an OPC UA environment (e.g., encryption, authentification, server settings (ports, protocols) to allow plug-and-play connectivity between machines and software
  3. Quality Assurance through testing specifications and tools, certification, and serving as ombudsman for supplier-client disputes
  4. Marketing and a label for visbility in the market through a global community of machine builders, component suppliers, and added value services.

umati has set itself the goal to create the standard for
connecting machine tools to IT systems in the production
environment (vertical integration). In the long term, the
following parameter groups are covered:

  • Uniform machine identification
  • Operating state of the machine tool
  • Information on production order
  • Supply information (energy, material)
  • Tools and workpieces
  • Storage systems
  • Forecasts on user interactions
