Intelligent solutions for tomorrow

At the recent EMO 2019 exhibition in Hanover, Tornos presented intelligent and interactive solutions that it says not only meet customer needs, but also anticipate them.

Beyond machines, Tornos offers production workflow solutions, including its Industry 4.0-enabling TISIS software, which allows programming and communicating directly with the machine. The user is guided intuitively to ensure optimal use of all available tools.
On Tornos’ stand, expert engineers and R&D team members demonstrated the range of possibilities offered by the intelligent software, which the company is constantly developing for connected production.
Additionally, Tornos was among 50 machine tool manufacturers from all over the world demonstrating at EMO how UMATI – universal machine tool interface – makes machine data usable. Today’s customers expect to integrate new machines into their own information technology (IT) ecosystems without any difficulty whatsoever.
The networking of machines, systems and software is one of the most important trends in manufacturing right now. Today’s customers expect to be able to integrate new machines into their own information technology (IT) ecosystems with no difficulty. UMATI does this easily, quickly and securely on the basis of the Open Platform Communications (OPC) Unified Architecture (UA) international interoperability standard.
For over two years, a team of various machine-tool manufacturers has been working on developing this uniform language for machine tools. Together with control manufacturers, the companies aimed at making it as user friendly as possible. Along with all other UMATI project participants, Tornos was connected to a central dashboard. Furthermore, 18 software and data evaluation service providers demonstrated how this information could be used to generate added value for customers.
