This specification was created by a joint working group of the OPC Foundation and VDW. It defines an OPC UA Information Model to interface and exchange data with Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) systems.
The VDW , based in Frankfurt/Main, represents the interests of the German machine tool industry. In this context VDW is interested in increasing the innovation and competitive capacity of machine tool builders and manufacturers of CNC systems by reducing the expenses for linking CNC Systems with other applications. This should be achieved by standardization of CNC interfaces.
