Traditionally DMG Mori showcases a cross-section of the most innovative technologies when the AMB show in Stuttgart, Germany opens its doors to trade visitors from around the world.
With around 30 exhibits from the fields of turning, milling and advanced technologies on an exhibition area of over 2 000m², the machine tool producer will have an impressive presence at the event which runs from September 13th to 19th this year. Some of the innovations on show will include the third generation DMU 50 and the Robo2Go automation solution that can be used on several machines without any knowledge of robots.
As usual DMG Mori has a number of world premieres of machine tools at AMB. One model is the DMC 160 U duoBLOCK. This 5-axis universal machining center with pallet changer is based on the proven duoBLOCK principle and in its 4th generation offers 30% more stability and accuracy while at the same time reduces energy consumption by 30%. Innovative highlights of the machine include the new 1,800Nm 5X-torqueMASTER gear spindle and a travel path in the Y-direction that has now been lengthened from 1,250 to 1,600mm.
Another world premier is the second generation DMC 210 U. Maximum rigidity and long-term accuracy have always been the noteworthy features of the portal machines from DMG Mori. The machine tool manufacturer has optimised these even further in the second generation of this successful series. With a large cube-shaped work area and a high-performance spindle programme plus CELOS control in the standard version, the new DMU 210 U is perfectly equipped for the rising demands on the market, according to DMG Mori. Thanks to its numerous equipment options this machine, which will be available just in time for the AMB, is ideally suited for mechanical engineering in general, and in particular for sectors such as tool and mould making and aerospace. The large cube-shaped work area with travel paths of 2,100mm in the X and Y directions and 1,250mm in the Z-axis offer ample space here.
Another new machine is the fourth generation of the DMU 90 P duoBLOCK. Superior features here include the highly stable design of the universal machine, long-term accuracy and highest precision with up to 4μm positioning accuracy even in the standard version. The DMU 90 P is designed as a package machine with a 430Nm and 52kW motor spindle, space for 60 SK50 tools plus an IKZ coolant unit and guarantees an economical entry into heavy-duty machining.
Applications in tool and mould making as well as in general mechanical engineering call for investment in reliable, high-performance production equipment. DMG Mori has included the attractively priced DMU 90 P duoBLOCK in its range with universal machining in mind. With an X-axis travel path of 900mm and a workpiece weight of 1,800kg, it outperforms the smaller DMU 80 P duoBLOCK.
A key building block in DMG Mori’s customer-oriented digitalisation strategy is the app-based CELOS control system, that the machine tool manufacturer first presented around three years ago and which it has continued to develop in a targeted manner ever since.
Using this uniform user interface for machine and office PC, employees on the shopfloor and in job scheduling can manage, document and visualise all job order, process and machine data. Thanks to its open architecture, CELOS allows the exchange of information with higher–level structures in addition to the impact it has in the shopfloor area.
