DMG Mori A glimpse into the future of machine tool building
Germany – Traditionally DMG Mori showcases a cross-section of the most innovative technologies when the AMB opens its doors to trade visitors from all over the world.
With around 30 exhibits from the fields of turning, milling and advanced technologies on an exhibition area of over 2,000 m² the machine tool producer will be giving visitors a glimpse into the future of production from to 19 September 2016. The innovations on show during the trade fair will include the third generation DMU 50, for example, and the Robo 2 Go automation solution – this can be used on several machines without any knowledge of robots.
A key building block in DMG Mori’s customer-oriented digitalisation strategy is the app-based Celos system, that the machine tool manufacturer first presented around three years ago and which it has consistently continued to develop in a targeted manner ever since. Using this uniform user interface for machine and office PC, employees in shop floor and job scheduling can manage, document and visualise all job order, process and machine data, the company says. Thanks to its open architecture, Celos allows the exchange of information with higher-level structures in addition to the impact it has in the shop floor area. So Celos is said to offer customers complete integration of their machines in the company organisation while simultaneously creating today the interface of metal cutting production in the cyber-physical production system of the future. The benefits in day-to-day operation are convincing, DMG Mori claims: a 30% time saving in tooling times and 50% less time and effort for the calculation of technology values or the search for important information are just a few of the effects that can be achieved with Celos. According to the company, customers also profit from the continuous further development of the Celos system, because with every new release DMG Mori implements 50 enhancements. In addition, DMG Mori will be presenting ten new Celos Apps at the AMB. These will include the new Celos Developer App, with which partners will be able to develop their own APP for the very first time.
Workshop-oriented programming is still of great importance. As a result, DMG Mori currently has 24 exclusive DMG Mori technology cycles for the fields of turning and milling in its portfolio. These enable operators in the workshop to program up to 60% faster.
