Automation is a key pillar of the DMG MORI strategy for the future. One in every four new machines is already automated or ready for automation. DMG MORI USA has straightened its automation expertise in the U.S. by expanding the Automation Systems team in Davis, CA to include a full Field Service team dedicated to automation based in the DMG MORI USA headquarters in Chicago, IL.
Digitization has been the hot topic over the last few months, with automation technologies also reporting record figures. Do you see a direct connection here?
In addition to information and production technologies, process automation and digitization are two sides of the same coin. As a cross-sectoral topic, automation has therefore taken on a fundamental key role. This applies to complexity and cost effectiveness of production and it is also growing in relevance due to the increasing shortage of skilled labor.
DMG MORI USA National Engineering team combine the expertise of automation solutions with process engineering to ensure complete and comprehensive solutions. Customers receive an integral and reliable solution: from engineering, tooling and NC programs right through to integrated automation, all from a single source.
DMG MORI has a complete automation solution for every manufacturing application. Whether pallet handling or workpiece handling, a solution can be achieved. DMG MORI offers pallets as well as gantry solutions, preconfigured from the factory, offering minimal implantation and little to no customization. Modular accessories exist to further expand the capabilities without the efforts of customization.
Complete customization is also possible, including material handling, part identification, wash stations, inspection and full cell controller implementation capable of genealogy, scheduling and data analytics.
"Everything from a single source: We offer our customers a reliable turnkey solution – from engineering to fixtures, tooling, NC programs and on through to integrated automation."
