New alliance between machine building and IT for Industrie 4.0
DMG MORI, Dürr, Software AG and ZEISS as well ASM PT found joint venture
Through the joint venture ADAMOS (ADAptive Manufacturing Open Solutions), DMG MORI, Dürr, Software AG and Zeiss as well as ASM PT are establishing a strategic alliance for the future topics of Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Germany’s first alliance of well-known industrial and software companies wants to establish ADAMOS as global standard for the industry and attract other machine builders to become partners. Adamos is customized to meet the specific needs of machine and plant builders and their customers: The open IIoT platform Adamos is non-proprietary and brings together the most up-to-date IT technology and industry knowledge. It enables machine building companies to offer tried and tested solutions for digitally networked production to their customers with little effort. Machine builders as well as their suppliers and customers will benefit from this as Adamos is a platform service that offers data autonomy and access to leading software solutions. The jointly developed Adamos platform will be available worldwide as of 1 October 2017.
Christian Thönes, Chief Executive Officer of DMG Mori AG: “Regarding digitization the machine and plant building industry has to set its own standards and drive development. This can only work with strong partners. That is why we are offering an open network with Adamos together with leading machine building, production and software/IT know-how – from machine builders for machine builders, their suppliers and customers.“
Ralf W. Dieter, Chief Executive Officer of Dürr AG: “As a machine builder we know our customers‘ requirements and know what is important to them. In the Adamos App Factory we bring industry knowledge for intuitively operated applications together with the design of digital marketplaces. The Adamos App Factory is a cooperation between machine builders and software companies that is closely linked with the partners.“
Karl-Heinz Streibich, Chief Executive Officer of Software AG: “Software AG’s technology leadership and digital expertise is based on a total investment of more than one billion euros. Our industry neutrality and global presence combined with the know-how of leading machine and plant builders worldwide form the foundation of Adamos.“
Thomas Spitzenpfeil, Member of the Executive Board (CFO/CIO) of Carl Zeiss AG: “With Adamos strong partners are working together equally on pushing digital connectivity. Together we are developing technologies for the factory of the future. Companies that use the IIoT applications from Adamos, will be making use of innovative services and thus increase the efficiency, transparency, reliability and availability of their systems significantly.“
Günter Lauber, CEO of the SMT Solutions Segment of ASM PT: “The growing interconnectivity of production means that not only our customers, but also we ourselves have to change our thinking. We create the conditions for this at ASM PT with innovative solutions for various line and factory workflows for electronic manufacturing – whilst complying with the highest IT security standards. Through Adamos we are combining this knowledge with leading machine building, production and software know-how.”
