MACH 2016 from 11th to 15th April 2016 will give UK companies the ideal opportunity to see a line-up of 14 DMG MORI machines under power including advanced additive manufacturing with the LASERTEC 65 3D and 5 new APPs for CELOS®, aimed at intelligent Industry 4.0 production, as well as the impressive Porsche 919 Hybrid racing-car on its stand 5610 at the entrance to Hall 5 of the NEC.
The latest CELOS® now has 16 APPs including 5 new ones: Pallet Changer for simple handling of 2 or 3 pallets, Service Agent for an overview of all maintenance tasks on the machine, Tool Handling which reduces tooling times, Job Scheduler for machine-related job order planning and Messenger for immediate detection of downtimes. Additionally, DMG MORI has introduced a PC version of CELOS®, which enables office based use of its functions, the ability to monitor all the machines and optimally plan and control the production process directly during the production engineering phase. All these new APPs focus on increased utilization and productivity, providing key functionality and feedback for Industry 4.0 implementation.
5-axis machining with the DMU 75 monoBLOCK and DMU 60 eVo linear. The top selling machine DMU 75 monoBLOCK® is designed in the stable monoBLOCK® design. The swivel rotary table allows simultaneous 5-axis machining for workpieces up to 600 kg. The DMU 75 monoBLOCK® is equipped with the latest speedMASTER® motor spindle with 20,000 min-1¬, tool magazine with 60 pockets and CELOS® with 21.5” ERGOline® panel and SIEMENS. A new optimised gantry design for the DMU 60 eVo linear is at the heart of this machine. The short distance of the guide ways on the X and Y axis ensure constant high rigidity and at the same time the design gives considerably improved side access, even when automation is implemented. Furthermore, the swivel rotary table has been uprated to 400 kg. Rapid traverse rates on the Dynamic version reach 80 m/min thanks to the linear drives and the tool magazine has 30 pockets, which can be expanded to 120 as an option.
Visitors to the show will be able to see the NHX5000 and the NVX5080 horizontal and vertical machining centres. The NHX 5000 2nd generation horizontal machining centre is equipped with the latest speedMASTER® spindle, with 30.7 kW power and 15,000 min-1, and CELOS® from DMG MORI with 21.5″ ERGOline® and MAPPS. This delivers high-speed and stable high-precision machining in a paperless environment. The structure of the machine is optimised for static and dynamic rigidity and the distance between the spindle end face and the centre of the pallet is short, so machining can be done using short tools even near the centre of the pallet. The optional B-axis includes DDM (Direct Drive Motor) and the rapid traverse is 60 m/min with an acceleration of 1 G for high-efficiency, continuous machining.
The upgraded NLX 2500 offers increased reliability, accuracy, rigidity and operability through innovations such as thermal displacement control and a high rigidity bed. The machine comes with a 10 inch chuck and in three sizes – 500, 700 and 1250 between centres. A combination of Y-axis, tailstock, second spindle and turret milling options make it possible to tailor this machine to meet the most demanding manufacturing requirements.
The ultra-compact patented turn-mill spindle on the CTX beta 800 TC has an integrated ejecting cylinder and provides 120 Nm of torque with a length of just 350 mm. In comparison with common spindles, this new spindle provides 20% more torque with an increased work area of 170 mm. The attractively priced machine has a turning diameter of 500 mm and 850 mm turning length. The Y-axis stroke is 200 mm and the Direct Drive B-axis has a swivel range of 110°, bringing the benefits of efficient turn & mill machining of small workpieces to manufacturers. Available with CELOS®, and optionally 11 Technology Cycles, programming time can be reduced by as much as 60%.
The NTX 1000 2nd generation offers 5-axis simultaneous machining on a 10.4m2 footprint, the smallest in its class, with six variations to choose from. The turn & mill centre can handle workpieces 800 mm long and 430 mm diameter. Maintainability is improved with external disassembly of the safety glass and long life scratch resistant surfaces. CELOS® comes with either Siemens or Fanuc ERGOline® controls with DMG MORI SMARTkey® personalised access. Features such as holistic cooling, DDM (Direct drive B-axis), BMT (Built-in Motor Turret) and direct linear scale feedback by Magnescale combine to produce a powerful machine with exceptional levels of precision.
DMG MORI advanced technology on the LASERTEC 65 3D offers a hybrid solution for combined laser deposition welding and 5-axis milling. This process uses a deposition process by means of a powder nozzle, which is up to 10 times faster than generation in a powder bed. The machine has a 2.5 kW diode laser for laser deposition welding, combined with a fully fledged 5-axis milling machine in robust monoBLOCK® design. This enables deposition and machining operations to be interspersed, enabling normally inaccessible areas to be accurately machined as the process continues. For components where a large proportion of the material is machined away or where special corrosion resistant coatings are required, the LASERTEC 65 3D can offer significant savings through the completion of parts on one machine.
DMG MORI’s ECOLINE machine tools deliver quality and affordability. One of the new features of the ecoTurn 450 is the Y-axis with ± 60mm travel option, which is only available with Operate 4.5 on SIEMENS, for more flexibility in complex turning-milling operations. The 45 degree slant bed eases chip removal and an automatically traversing tailstock offers high reliability. The rapid traverse rate is 30 m/min and the machine comes with a 15-inche DMG MORI SLIMline® Panel all in a footprint of 5.8 m2.
The ecoMill 800 V will be at the NEC, offering the ultimate in entry level milling, enabling the machining of workpieces weighing up to 800 kg. It has an X-traverse capability of 800 mm while its two sister machines the ecoMill 600 V and the ecoMill 1100 V can handle parts up to 600 kg and 1000 kg respectively. Rapid traverse rates are 30 m/min, tool change times 1.3 seconds while accuracy of 6 µm make this a capable machine that does not compromise on quality. Features on the machine include 3D control technology choices with the new 19-inch DMG MORI SLIMline® multi-touch control, which operates on SIEMENS, and the 15-inch DMG MORI SLIMline® Panel and MAPPS on FANUC.
Highlight at the DMG MORI stand will be the presentation of the impressive racing-car Porsche 919 Hybrid. DMG MORI has been the Premium Partner of the Porsche team in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) since 2014. The 2015 racing season was outstandingly successful as Porsche took the overall victory in Le Mans and won the Diver´s and the Manufactory World Championship titles. DMG MORI is proud to present the successful partnership live on its stand with one of the Porsche LMP1 Drivers on April 12th, 2016. Starting at 11.00 a.m., together with one of the Porsche race drivers, DMG MORI will introduce the visitors on its stand to the World Endurance Championship, its partnership with Porsche and give everyone the opportunity to attend an autograph signing with the LMP1 Driver.
DMG MORI is continuing the premium partnership in 2016 and has high hopes that the World Endurance Championship success will be repeated. It supports Porsche in two ways, firstly as a long-time supplier to companies making high-quality vehicle components for the team and secondly, by setting up a Porsche Motorsport CNC Competence Centre, which is a dedicated component production department, at DECKEL MAHO Seebach. During the 2014 season and beyond it has been supplying Porsche with a growing range of vehicle components. The aim is to deliver precision and flexibility, progressing towards the development of intelligent manufacturing for demanding parts in a long term technology transfer program for sustainable success.
