It will be broader-based and more business-oriented, offering the young companies which participate greater added value.

    There will be individual and joint stands, for example from the German federal states, from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) and from foreign investors. Finally, the exhibition will be supplemented by forums and pitches in which the young companies can introduce themselves.

    umati – a common language for Industry 4.0

    The interface standard for machine tools based on OPC UA, with all its functionalities, will finally be presented at EMO Hannover 2019. This provides neutral and open connection of machines to higher-level IT systems. It is a prerequisite for the success of Industry 4.0. Only then can data from different machine manufacturers with different control systems be transferred to ERP and MES systems or into the cloud. There they are further processed or evaluated and thus form the basis of new services and functions.

    This connectivity is the key to all the added value and business models that the economy hopes Industry 4.0 will yield. Small and medium-sized companies in particular are counting on being able to connect their machines effectively in order to participate in the new IoT developments. This will help them concentrate on their core competences in their daily business.

    This is why the VDW together with eight well-known German machine tool manufacturers and all major control suppliers launched the umati interface in 2017. umati stands for universal machine tool interface. A joint working group was set up for OPC UA at the end of 2018. The international machine tool community is now working in revising and disseminating the standard.

    At EMO Hannover 2019 a complete implementation of the specification will be presented – together with a larger number of partners. "The VDW is assuming that the first products will also be offered in which preconfigured OPC UA servers are integrated directly into the respective control units based on the specification, explains Schäfer.

    Together with partners from industry, vocational colleges and other educational institutions, the Youth Education and Development Foundation for Mechanical Engineering is presenting its training projects and initiatives for the metalworking professions and for technical study programmes. Young people poised to make career decisions as well as teachers and trainers attending the Youth Special Show should be aware of the significance of modern high-tech training in mechanical engineering today.

    No company is immune to the changes taking place in the world of work, no matter where they are based. It is best to tackle the employee-related challenges head on. The initiatives of the Youth Education and Development Foundation for Mechanical Engineering being presented at EMO Hannover serve as good models which can be applied in other countries. The Youth Education and Development Foundation for Mechanical Engineering itself is already active internationally. It is training technology teachers in Italy or Croatia, for example.
