Walter-Comara Venture Provides Advanced Connectivity for Smart Manufacturing



"In a move designed to further its commitment to and enhance its support of customers in the U.S. and around the world who are striving to meet the challenges of 21st century manufacturing, Walter has joined with long-standing software partner Comara to create a new company under joint leadership. This is a key step in our drive to provide our customers in North America and around the world with Smart Manufacturing, Industry 4.0 solutions," said Mirko Merlo, President of Walter AG.

This is not a new goal for either of these companies. Walter, now with the majority stake in the new company, is continuing to pursue its evolution from a tool manufacturer to a provider of comprehensive production solutions. Comara, meanwhile, has been working closely with Walter since 2012 on connectivity and Smart Manufacturing issues, building on its strengths in collecting, evaluating and using real-time data to connect machines. Together with Walter, the company also develops software solutions for connecting all devices in the production environment, from machines and tools to logistics and databases.

The synergies made possible by the new Walter-Comara collaboration will enable Walter to digitize and to connect tools with greater precision and sophistication and optimize them using real-time data. Combining with the existing Walter Tool·ID system allows the user to transfer tool data from the pre-setting device to the machine tool and to evaluate the parameters that are run on the machine. This will give rise to the production of smart tools in the future.

Comara, with its appCom, offers machine manufacturers and industrial companies their own platform for individual apps - special software modules geared to the production environment. In collaboration with Walter, the aim is to develop further solutions and make them available to additional machine and device manufacturers and end users.
