DMG MORI Chicago Innovation Days Features Latest Machining Technologies
May 7, 2019
During this year’s Chicago Innovation Days in Hoffman Estates from May 13th - 16th, 2019, DMG MORI will once again demonstrate latest trends and innovations in machine tool manufacturing. The event highlights will be Integrated Digitization for planning, preparation, production, monitoring, and service, Automation Solutions for competitive manufacturing, and Additive Manufacturing with four process chains in the powder bed and with the powder nozzle. Additionally, DMG MORI will present their Technology Excellence in the leading sectors of aerospace, automotive, die & mold, and medical. A special focus on the machine tool manufacturer’s 35-year history in 5-Axis Excellence and two U.S. premieres – the ALX 2000 and the DMP 70.
Modern equipment options, compact dimensions, and a high level of automation all contribute to the efficiency of a turning machine. DMG MORI has considered this in the development of the ALX series to meet the high demands of serial production in the automotive and other sectors. The ALX 2000, a U.S. premiere that DMG MORI produces locally in Davis, is a stable, dynamic, and compact turning machine that combines excellent standards from a max. spindle speed of 4,500 min-1 to the BMT turret with twelve powered tools and tailstock. In addition, the ALX 2000 offers a high degree of automation thanks to the optional gantry loader, a deciding factor for cost-effectiveness in production.
As the successor of the MILLTAP 700 (with more than 3,000 machines installed), the new DMP 70 stands for maximum productivity on the smallest space. With a footprint of just 46.28ft² it is 10 percent smaller than the MILLTAP 700. DMG MORI has designed the compact production machine for applications in medical technology, job shops, as well as the aerospace sector and other demanding industries. Travel paths of 27 x 16 x 15 inches and the optional integrated swivel/rotary table enable 5-axis simultaneous machining of a wide range of components making the DMP 70 the ideal addition to any shop floor. Automation solutions such as the workpiece handling WH 3 Cell which can be connected from the right, left, or front of the DMP 70, will be presented at Innovation Days.
