Through the joint venture Adaptive Manufacturing Open Solutions – Adamos, DMG Mori, Dürr, Software AG and Zeiss as well as ASM PT are establishing a strategic alliance for the future topics of Industry 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 engineering companies to offer tried and tested solutions for digitally networked production to their customers with little effort. Machine tool 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: “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.“

Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things enable interconnectivity and communication between machines as well as the comprehensive acquisition and use of real-time data. This provides the basis for employing digital services and new business models, and optimizing production with the aid of big data analyses. Customers can identify maintenance requirements at an early stage, for instance, and can plan production or can source spare parts automatically.

The most important drivers of growth, innovation and productivity at present for machine building are Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. The race to gain data sovereignty demands a fast pace of innovation. At the same time, the Internet of Things demands a high level of investment, excellent specialists and the command of new technologies. This is where the cross sectoral cooperation takes hold and offers the machine building industry many advantages.

Adamos GmbH and Adamos App Factory launch as of 1 October 2017 with about 200 experts. DMG Mori, Dürr, Software AG and Zeiss as well as ASM PT are equal participants in Adamos GmbH, a new company registered in Darmstadt. In addition, other machine and plant builders can take advantage of Adamos’ range of services as partners. Each partner markets the Adamos range independently. Adamos GmbH operates as a platform service and thus makes leading IIoT tools and functions available to all the platform users. Marketing of individual IIoT solutions is carried out by the participating partners. (Source: DMG Mori)
