Successful OPC UA kick-off with screwdriving technology manufacturers and exchange of experience "Virtual Commissioning and Digital Twin".
After the successful exhibition at automatica 2018, the R+A OPC UA Demonstrator has reached its new home at the Institute of Industrial Information Technology (inIT) at the University of Lemgo.

The OPC UA Initiative End-of-Arm Tools (EoAT) was founded at the beginning of 2019 and has set itself the goal of describing tools that can (but not exclusively), for example, be used as end effectors on a robot in the form of an OPC UA information model.
A huge number of visitors at our demonstrator stand. The two use cases "Skill-based control" and "Condition Monitoring" were well-received.
