4.1 Introduction to OPC UA interfaces for plastics and rubber machinery ToC Previous Next

Industry 4.0 means exchange of data/information between machines for increasing the quality and efficiency of the production. This is only possible with standardised interfaces. Plastics and rubber machines are usually integrated in a production line and/or connected to superordinate systems like Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). This is why, the joint working group OPC UA Plastics and Rubber Machinery develops Companion Specifications for both horizontal and vertical communication.
