New Online Event: The Global Production Language - OPC UA Companion Specifications on November 10th 2020

On November 10th 2020, a world first, immersive online event specialized on OPC UA Companion Specifications will take place - conveniently from your home office. You will learn more about the approaches and scope of published or currently being developed OPC UA Companion Specifications for the mechanical and plant engineering industry.

Key Notes

 

The key notes cover the following topics:

  • the Role of OPC UA standards for the mechanical engineering industry by the VDMA, 
  • updates on OPC UA activities and harmonization approaches of the OPC Foundation, 
  • why umati will stregthen the adoption of OPC UA standards world wide and
  • how "OPC UA for Machinery" harmonization of OPC UA standards for mechanical engineering industry will serve as the basis for every upcomeing OPC UA Companion Specification.

 

Parallel Sessions

After those important information you have the choice between multiple parallel running slots where experts from the respective branches of mechanical and plant engineering will present the OPC UA standards for their industry. Unique insights into the development process as well as the contents of the standard will be explained and recommendations for the implementation will be given. make sure to stay up to date and visit speeches from Atlas Copco, Engel Austria, Homag, ISW Stuttgart, KUKA, LNI 4.0, Oskar Fresh, Trumpf, OPC Foundation, TU Munich, umati, VDMA, VDW, Vitronic, Wittenstein Cyber Motor and WIWA.

Experience the new immersive online conference technology

This event will use edge cutting online conference technology. You will have the possibility to decide whether you use your own avatar to "visit" the "conference" and navigate through the conference building and experience the new immersive technology of conferences or use the live stream, where you can also choose between the different speeches and listen the conventional way.

OPC UA

OPC UA standards will significantly influence and change the communication in mechanical and plant engineering as well as in the manufacturing and process industry. In addition, customers like the automotive industry of the mechanical and plant engineering industry will in future demand that products support OPC UA Companion Specifications and thus have standardized interfaces. In the VDMA, over 600 companies are currently developing interface standards, the so-called OPC UA Companion Specifications, in over 35 working groups.


New to OPC UA? Visit the beginner seminar on OPC UA basics

If you do not yet have OPC UA expertise, the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, VDMA's advanced training academy, offers you a good introduction to the topic with the virtual seminar "OPC UA Fundamentals in Mechanical Engineering". In the seminar you will learn the basics of OPC UA by means of theory and practical use cases from mechanical engineering.
