DMG MORI’s new Technology Center in the heart of Somerville, in Northeast USA, will be a hub for research and development of new digitization solutions and processes for customers worldwide.
The official Grand Opening took place April 12, 2022. The showroom will feature an NTX 1000, an NHX 4000, a DMU 60 eVo linear and a DMP 70. Right next door and separated only by a roll-up door, TULIP has its headquarters. Their no-code platform for creating apps has been an important part of DMG MORI's product portfolio since 2019.
“The growing economic development in the northeast USA makes Boston an ideal location for another DMG MORI subsidiary,” explains DMG MORI USA President Dr. Keiichi Ota. “Medical, Aerospace and other high technology-driven companies are increasingly growing or locating in the region.” From the tradition-rich Assembly Square – named after the Ford Assembly Plant that once stood on this site – DMG MORI will sustainably strengthen its proximity to customers in the future,” he adds. “The proximity to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Wentworth College and other technical universities will also help us to further advance our focus topics of automation and digitization.” Similar to the innovation centers in Chicago and Davis, this will make DMG MORI Boston an important place for research and development in these fields. In particular, digitization will be of major significance looking at the proximity to TULIP. “This close collaboration will help us to digitize processes in a hands-on way.”
