About umati

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.
