This year at IMTS, DMG MORI will be showcasing the wide range of automation capabilities that the brand offers, especially in the field of gear manufacturing. DMG MORI will display, among others, the NLX 2500 SY, a universal lathe factory installed with a gantry loader, the DMU 40 eVo linear and the DMC 125 FD duoBLOCK.
NLX 2500 SY 3-Axis Lathe
The long-time proven 3-axis lathe NLX 2500 SY also impresses with gear machining techniques such as hobbing and broaching that will be demonstrated at IMTS. With an extremely rigid machine construction and a direct drive motor in the turret, the NLX 2500 SY is well equipped for such applications. The factory installed gantry loader as well as the second spindle enables an autonomous production and six-side complete machining of high volume shaft components with gears and splines. The gantry can also be applied to many other types of DMG MORI lathes and even to multi-tasking machines, such as DMG MORI's CTX gamma 2000 TC Second Generation.
DMU 40 eVo Linear Machine
Aside from demonstrating hobbing and broaching, DMG MORI is demonstrating power skiving on the DMU 40 eVo linear machine, its universal 5-axis machining center. This one can also be equipped with various automation solutions like the WH 10 and WH 25 part handlings or differently sized pallet handlings. The DMU 40 eVo linear will be turning an ID bore and then power skiving an internal gear. Power skiving for larger gears will be demonstrated on a DMU 125 FD duoBLOCK.
At IMTS the DMU 40 eVo linear and NLX 2500 SY will demonstrate complete machining of the pre heat treat operations of the part. Both machines are capable of turning, keyway milling, gear machining, hole drilling and other operations. They are also suitable for the unattended operation by adding various types of gaging and inspection capabilities in the cell.
DMG MORI is taking a solutions approach in providing the customer with not just a high-technology machine but a complete automation solution with integrated systems. DMG MORI's in-house team of automation experts can support all automation needs of its customers.Apart from these high volume gear production machines, DMG MORI will also have their line of multi-tasking machines producing gears using other gear manufacturing methods. DMG MORI will also feature their additive-subtractive hybrid machine, Lasertec 65 3D.
