UMATI Companion Specification
Universal Machine Tool Interface (UMATI) by VDW enables machine tools an peripherals to connect to customer-specific IT ecosystems. UMATI is currently in development. The MTConnect Institute and VDW have initiated talks to harmonize MTConnect with the eventual UMATI standard, which may lead to a Companion Specification published jointly or by the MTConnect Institute. A release date for UMATI has not been announced as of October, 2019; any future companion spec for MTConnect/UMATI will align to MTConnect version 1.5 or later.
