EUROMAP interfaces for Industry 4.0

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. With machines and processes becoming increasingly complex, existing hardware interfaces are now reaching their limits. This is why EUROMAP develops new interfaces on the basis of OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA). This platform independent interoperability standard ensures the secure and reliable exchange of data in the field of industrial automation in a number of industries.
Projects under development:

  • EUROMAP 77: Injection Moulding Machines - Data exchange interface for MES
    Release Candidate published in October 2016, see
  • EUROMAP 79: Interface between Injection Moulding Machine and Handling Device / Robot
  • EUROMAP 82: Interface between injection moulding machines and peripherial devices:
    • temperature control
    • hot runner
    • conveying / dryer
  • EUROMAP 83: General Type Definitions
  • EUROMAP 84: Data Exchange between Extruders and MES
