Digital factory, holistic automation solutions and technology excellence: at the traditional open house exhibition at DECKEL MAHO Pfronten, DMG MORI was showing the entire scope of its technology competence. The 9,000 international trade visitors were able to see 70 high-tech machines across 8,500 m² of exhibition space, including the new NTX 3000 as a world premiere, as well as innovative manufacturing processes, such as ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING.
The open house exhibition’s central theme was the “Path of Digitization”, by which DMG MORI is promoting the digital transformation in machine building worldwide. They are actively shaping digitized production by the APP-based control and operating environment CELOS as well as exclusive technology cycles and Powertools. More than 10,000 DMG MORI machines fitted with CELOS have been supplied so far. Moreover, DMG MORI is offering its customers and suppliers an integrated and open digital solution with the open, digital platform ADAMOS. Short-term over 100 customers will be connected to the new IIoT platform and all DMG MORI machines will operate with total connectivity.
At the end of 2017, DMG MORI acquired WERKBLiQ GmbH from Bielefeld with its 20-strong team as a further milestone of its digitization strategy. WERKBLiQ offers a non-proprietary platform where all those involved in the maintenance process can be linked to one another. The WERKBLiQ user interface allows machine operators to access all the important data and key figures in individual dashboards at the click of a button. “This digitizes the entire maintenance and repair process and speeds it up considerably,” says Christian Thönes, Chairman of the Executive Board of DMG MORI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT.
From the start of the open house, the warranty period for all motor spindles of the “MASTER” series is 36 months, without restriction on hours. “Now more than ever, “First Quality” means quality without compromise at DMG MORI,” adds Thönes. The MASTER spindles excel through extremely good reliability and a considerably longer service life compared to conventional spindles. This is in part due to the use of Vacrodur – an innovative type of steel that provides outstanding resilience, wear resistance and temperature stability. In 2018, DMG MORI wants to also set new benchmarks in service and become a service excellence champion to its customers with its “First Quality” offensive and “Customer First” program.
