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. umati - the universal machine tool interface - is an universal interface, which enables machine tools and peripherals to connect to customer-specific IT ecosystems – easy, secure, and seamless. An open standard for machine tool users throughout the world. It serves to exploit new potentials for manufacturing of the future.
umati serves the needs of machine tool users by reducing costs for machine tool connectivity, faster realization of customer specific projects, and enabling transparency and the possibility to optimize the production by getting added value from data.
