Eumabois: OPC UA for Plug & Work in Woodworking

    Under the leadership of VDMA Woodworking Machinery, the EUMABOIS working group “OPC UA – Plug & Work” is developing a uniform interface for communication between woodworking machines in production and higher-level ERP/MES systems and the cloud.

    Information on OPC UA in the woodworking industries is available from the companies involved in the project:

    • Altendorf
    • Biesse Group
    • BÜRKLE
    • HOMAG Group
    • IMA Schelling Group
    • SCM
    • Weber
    • Weinig Group

    The next steps of the project are already outlined. In a few weeks, the “Plug & Work” working group will formally establish a Joint Working Group (JWG) together with the OPC Foundation. The constituent meeting of the JWG is scheduled for September. The first draft of a specification, available from the working group, is to be published as an official Draft Companion Specification at the beginning of 2020.
