DIGITAL INNOVATIONS

Exclusive DMG MORI technology cycles are effective assistants for shop floor programming and the simplest way to boost productivity, enhance safety and expand machine capability. They offer a clear program structure, intuitive operation and enable up to 60 % faster programming. In addition, they help minimize errors as well as allowing the internal transfer of complex technology know-how.

Outstanding customer benefits mean DMG MORI’s exclusive technology cycles have been writing their own digital success story for years. Their record in the field of integrated technologies is especially impressive: users trust in the exclusive technology cycles on more than 95 % of all turn & mill universal turning centers in the CTX TC series.

“Far more important for us, however, is the added value for and appreciation from our customers,” stresses Dr. Edmond Bassett as Head of Technology Management at GILDEMEISTER Drehmaschinen GmbH. He takes the MPC technology cycle, a version sold over 100 times a month and thus one of the most successful technology cycles, to illustrate the high degree of acceptance among customers. MPC stands for Machine Protection Control which, thanks to its integrated acceleration sensor, increases process safety, enables spindle bearing diagnostics and prevents expensive damage caused by collisions.

“Complex production processes that were reserved for special machines in the past now count among our powerful drivers of innovation,” says Dr. Edmond Bassett as Head of Technology Management at GILDEMEISTER Drehmaschinen GmbH.

“Intensified technology integration adds a whole new dimension to the term complete machining,” he stresses. DMG MORI gearSKIVING is just such an example. This enables the production of top quality gears through the input of clearly structured programs.

The exclusive portfolio currently includes 30 DMG MORI technology cycles, with two more to follow in time for the AMB. Dr. Bassett refers expressly to the new “crownHOBBING” cycle for the production of demanding Hirth couplings: “This enables users of our turn & mill centers to generate the programs they need virtually at the press of a button. The cycle handles the required tooth path calculations and the settings for the axis movements,” he concludes.

Customers replace up to three standalone machines with a turn & mill center thanks to the new crownHOBBING cycle.
