Automated machines are crucial components of a digital factory and are therefore an integral part of Industry 4.0. DMG MORI is the pioneer of digitalisation in machine tool construction, and considers automation to be a core topic. In order to strengthen the development of future-oritented automation solutions the innovation leader concentrates their knowhow with a long-standing partner: DMG MORI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT and HEITEC AG are founding the joint venture “DMG MORI HEITEC“.
Poor concentration and fatigue – never! Robots have always been seen by their human counterparts as reliable and indispensable “colleagues”. They are now increasingly handling the welding, bending, cutting, separation, transfer and storage of pipes and tubes. Thanks to artificial intelligence and machine learning, robots are set to become even more flexible and will eventually replace purely repetitive robots altogether.
Manufacturing industry is in a transition stage taking big leaps towards digitization and automation; resulting in what we today call as Industry 4.0. Some of the aggressive users of robotic technology and artificial intelligence – something most players are still grappling to adopt in the manufacturing industry – see artificial intelligence the next big logical step for improving the productivity.
The force with which the digital transformation is starting to steamroll automated production will be obvious at automatica 2018, in Munich from June 19 to 22. Terms like cloud robotics, deep learning and smart production are no longer just catchwords, but instead are increasingly becoming experienced reality.
The laboratory of the future opens up previously unforeseeable new opportunities: higher throughput rates, precisely controlled automation processes, and more intelligent collection and analysis of information. Festo is the host of this year’s ELRIG Meeting, Robotics & Automation, on 28 February 2018.
Digital factory, integral automation solutions and technology excellence – DMG MORI will be showcasing its complete range of manufacturing competence at the traditional DECKEL MAHO Pfronten Open House from 30. January to 3. February 2018. On over 8.500 m² of exhibition space the leader of technology will be presenting 70 high-tech machines including the new NTX 3000 as a world premiere as well as innovative manufacturing processes such as ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING with a total of three complete process chains. With the DMG MORI Qualified Products (DMQP) the machine tool manufacturer offers perfectly matched peripherals and accessories for production and with VCS basic a new technology cycle is launches for volumetric compensation and automatic calibration.
