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 the ISW at Stuttgart university.

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
