Machine tool manufacturer DMG Mori (Bielefeld, Germany) presented its entire technological expertise at its traditional open house exhibition at Deckel Maho, Pfronten, Germany, Jan. 22-26. With the topics of automation, digitization and additive manufacturing, the event was dedicated to integrated manufacturing solutions for holistic processes.
More than 8,000 international trade visitors saw 70 high-tech machines, including 20 with automation, and two world premieres: the vertical high-speed machining center DMP 70 for series production and the LASERTEC 125 Shape for 3D laser texturing of freeform surfaces in workpieces up to 2,600 kg.
“Networked production, integrated automation, and digitization concepts as well as high-precision and productive machines—we make our customers fit for the factory of the future,” said Christian Thönes, DMG Mori‘s chairman of the executive board.
With holistic solutions for automation, digitization and additive manufacturing, the manufacturer focuses on the entire value-added chain. “Integrated digitization” accelerates end-to-end digitization—from production planning to digital production monitoring to networked services. The production facilities Famot in Pleszew and Deckel Maho in Seebach were connected via live stream to the in-house exhibition as digital factories of the future.
Other highlights included large-scale machining in the XXL Center live with the DMU 600 P, aerospace and die and mold solutions, and the newly launched certificates program of DMG Mori Qualified Products, which offers a diverse selection of high-performance tooling systems on exclusive terms.
In the run-up to the open house exhibition, the manufacturer again organized a “future day” with 1,000 students from the region to show them advanced training in an international high-tech company. The Pfronten site currently employs 1,597 people, including 123 apprentices.
