The MachineToolIdentificationTypeof the Machine Tools information model holds static data which shall uniquely identify a machine tool among a pool of the machine tool operating entity. It is a subtype of the MachineIdentificationTypedefined in OPC 40001-1, so it inherits all InstanceDeclarations specified there.

The MachineToolIdentificationTypeis formally defined in Table 11.

MachineTool Identification SoftwareInformation

MachineTool Identification Machinery additional

SoftwareIdentificationcontains a list of instances of the SoftwareIdentificationType(see Table 13). This list contains the machine tool’s software identification information. It allows to add multiple software items, e.g. one for each of PLC, NC and HMI.

SoftwareRevisioninherited from the MachineIdentificationTypeshall contain an overall software patch level of the machine tool. Individual software revision numbers may be given using SoftwareIdentification.

For the DeviceClassinherited from the MachineIdentificationType, the values in Table 12shall be used. The most appropriate value, based on the main machine tool technology shall be chosen.

Additive manufacturing machines are not defined in the source mentioned. They include every additive technology currently available.
