Although semantic-based communication standards such as MTConnect and OPC UA (OPC Unified Architecture) are not a novelty and their development has greatly advanced, particularly with MTConnect in the field of machine tools, the number of machines that offer such an interface is very small. MTConnect therefore offers a standard format for the modeling of machine tools. The model thereby created will be provided by a local web server, the Agent, on the network in XML (Extensible Markup Language) format, and enriched with process data. The Agent receives this data through a peripheral software or hardware element, the Adapter, which reads data through a machine-specific interface, converts it to a unit or structure that corresponds to the standard and streams it, based on a standardized protocol, to the agent. The Agent stores the data in a buffer memory and provides it for requests from network clients. The ability to use a model enriched with process data as a virtual representation oft the real machine structure provides an easy way for reconfiguration and expansion of existing systems in this model. Above all it enables individual adjustments in addition to the use of standardized equipment architectures. This thesis deals with the modeling and the integration of an EMCO Maxxturn 45 lathe into an MTConnect Agent and the extension of this device model to include additional measuring devices. The adapter for the lathe is to be acquired from an MTConnect software manufacturer and is installed directly on the machine's control unit. For the measuring devices, an adapter was programmed based on a free software development kit (SDK) by MTConnect. This adapter further uses another free software library for communication with the measuring devices through ModbusTCP.
