How do machines in the Smart Factory communicate with each other?

Machine hall overview

A shared language connects. This also applies to machines in the industrial Internet of Things. The easier the sharing of information, the more efficient is the work. VDW has therefore developed umati (universal machine tool interface) together with TRUMPF and 16 other project partners. A universal interface integrates machine tools and systems into customer and user IT ecosystems safely, seamlessly and effortlessly. It is a standard for users in Germany and all over the world, opening up new opportunities for the Industry 4.0 era.
