DMG MORI Offers Advanced Machining Technology During Manufacturing Days
September 24, 2019
During Manufacturing Days at the factory in Davis, CA from October 8 to 9, DMG MORI will present the latest developments and innovations in horizontal machining, automation, additive manufacturing, and digitization. Visitors will have the opportunity to see 13 innovative machine tools, most of them equipped with automation solutions. The ALX 2500|500 with GX, the CMX 1100 V with MATRIS, and the NHX 4000 with LPP are just three of these highlights. Additionally, the Manufacturing Days schedule includes multiple training sessions and seminars.
The DMG MORI campus in Davis holds the U.S. factory and DMG MORI’s American Research and Development hub. The location between San Francisco and Sacramento allows the machine tool manufacturer to be closer to its North American customers. The extensive use of automation, combined with a highly skilled workforce, makes Davis one of the most advanced factories in the world. The facility utilizes DMG MORI machines and automation systems including a DMC 340 U, three NHX 10000’s and two NH 6300 DCGII. All are integral parts of the plant.
With the local production of the NHX and NH machines, DMG MORI emphasizes its competence in horizontal machining. During Manufacturing Days, six of these machines will be shown to visitors, four of them automated with LPP or RPS solutions. The factory’s production portfolio also includes the universal turning machines ALX 2000 and ALX 2500, as well as the vertical milling center CMX 1100 V.
At Manufacturing Days, DMG MORI presents the LASERTEC 12 SLM as a US premiere. The most precise model of the LASERTEC SLM series has the biggest building volume of its class, offering 4.9 x 4.9 x 7.9 in. The LASERTEC 12 SLM achieves its precision with a focus diameter of only 35 µm (0.0014 in). The LASERTEC 12 SLM offers material changes in less than 2 hours by changing the rePLUG powder modules. Being compatible with the bigger LASERTEC 30 SLM (11.8 x 11.8 x 11.8 in), the SLM platform concept is fully utilized.
