Industry 4.0 and OPC UA

A jury of experts has selected the ten inVISION Top Innovations of the Year 2019. The prestigious award – now in its 5th year – is bestowed on products that have shown to be particularly trend-setting or innovative.
OPC UA Companion Specification Vision - Part 1: Control, configuration management, recipe management, result management
OPC UA Companion Specification Robotics - Part 1: Condition monitoring, asset management, predictive maintenance, vertical integration
In the smart factory of the future, machines must speak the same language. The decisive factor here is the standardization of communication interfaces.
Capture the essence of the new Companion Specifications for robotics and machine vision within minutes.
Interoperable, vendor-independent, capability-based
Die Integrated Assembly Solutions (IAS) hat sich darauf geeinigt die Vision der Industrie 4.0, d. h. alle Teilnehmer und Assets (Maschinen, Anlagen, Werkstück usw.) im Unternehmen kommunizieren miteinander, in die Realität umzusetzen. Bis dahin ist es aber noch ein steiniger Weg.
An interview with Dr. Oliver Frager, Director R&D Mechatronics at teamtechnik Maschinen und Anlagen GmbH, about the recently released VDMA Specification 66416 entitled “Machines and Lines for Handling, Assembly and Testing Technologies – Safety of Machinery for Hazards Caused by Moving Machine Parts and Definition of Operating Modes“.
Hilfe bei der Umsetzung der DIN EN ISO 13849 gibt jetzt Ihre Fachabteilung IAS mit einem Einheitsblatt.
For the international robotics standardisation activities a separate Technical Committee (ISO/TC 299 "Robotics") was established on 1 January 2016.
Possible collaboration of humans and robots in shared workplaces without perimeter guarding opens up new possibilities and concepts in industry and production. The standardisation and legal situation allows for human-robot collaboration (HRC) within defined limits.

robot standardisation activities (ISO/TC 299)

The very dynamism of the Robotics sector means that technical standardisation plays a significant role within it; new possibilities and technological developments in robotics need to be reflected in the relevant standards.
Our current robot standardisation activities within ISO/TC 299 (until 31 Dec 2015 ISO/TC184/SC2) predominantly focus on safety aspects.

Standardisation for Machine Vision

Successful Machine Vision Projects! With this series of guidelines, system integrators have the appropriate tools.
In 2009, member supported trade associations began a cooperative initiative to coordinate the development of globally adopted vision standards and founded the international G3 initiative on standardization.
