Connectivity among various devices used in the manufacturing shop continues to evolve as vendors individually or collaboratively work to incorporate the tools needed for “smart manufacturing.” To that end, cutting tool manufacturer Walter USA has announced the formation of a new company with its long-time software partner, Comara GmbH.

Comara is a software developer that provides connectivity among all devices in the production environment, including machines and tools as well as logistics and databases. The synergies made possible by the Walter-Comara collaboration enable Walter to digitize and connect its tools with improved precision and sophistication, allowing optimization of real-time data.

Comara is able to offer machine manufacturers and shops an individual platform for tuning software “apps” to the company using specialized software modules tailored to the shop’s needs. The aim of this collaboration is to develop solutions that will include more machine and device manufacturers as well as end users.

Like much of the connectivity movement that is Industry 4.0, development is ongoing. This Walter-Comara venture is another step toward making smart manufacturing a reality throughout the industry.
