WEINIG, basysKom und OPC UA

In 2021 basysKom supported the WEINIG Group during the development and implementation of the Wood Working Companion Specification (WWCS).

The WEINIG Group

The WEINIG Group is the world’s largest manufacturer of machines and systems for solid wood processing. In 2020/21 a joint EUMABOIS and VDMA working group developed a first OPC UA companion specification for the wood working industry. WEINIG is a founding member of this group. The result is OPC 40550-1 – UA for Woodworking Part 1 – Vertical Interface which has been published during the LIGNA.Innovation event in September 2021. It has also been part of the umati initiative since then.

basysKom supported WEINIG with:

  • Consulting on OPC UA modelling know-how and overall experience with the technology
  • Consulting on how to best utilize the open62541 stack
  • Continuous prototyping efforts during the draft phase of the WWCS
  • Upstreaming of bugfixes for issues found in open62541 during the implementation of the various draft releases
  • Development of custom client-/server components for the final WWCS based on the open62541 stack and Qt OPC UA

As a result of this continuous process, WEINIG was able to offer products with WWCS the same day as the WWCS was published.
