This year at IMTS, the new ALX 2500 will make its US debut alongside two XXL machine premieres. Modern equipment options, compact dimensions and a high level of automation are all decisive for the efficiency of a turning machine. DMG MORI has taken this into account in the development of the ALX 2500, so customers from the automotive and other demanding branches such as general mechanical engineering have a model available that meets the high demands of serial production. On barely 52.6 ft² the stable, dynamic turning machine unites excellent standards from a max. spindle speed of 3,500 rpm to the BMT turret with twelve powered tools and tailstock and on to include perfect ergonomic design for operation and maintenance. In addition, the ALX 2500 offers a high degree of automation thanks to the optional gantry loader, a factor decisive for cost effectiveness in production.

The ALX 2500, a new turning machine in DMG MORI’s portfolio. combines performance, precision and process reliability.

With the ALX 2500, DMG MORI has added a new turning machine to its portfolio that adheres strictly to customer requirements with regard to performance, precision and process reliability. The sturdy construction with its slideways on the X-axis and linear motion guides on the Z-axis ensures good damping properties and a high level of positioning accuracy. This is of particular benefit in the automotive sector for the production of various housings and shafts. The ALX 2500 is available in 11.8 inches, 19.7 inches, 39.4 inches, and 78.7 inches turning length.

The ALX 2500 with its tailstock and twelve powered tools in the BMT turret can also handle more complex components. Rapid traverses of up to 98 ft/min and the high-performance turnMASTER spindle with a speed of 3,500 rpm and a torque of 587 ft lbs guarantee the necessary power and dynamics. Its accuracy is at 0.4 µ. DMG MORI offers the turnMASTER spindle with a warranty of 36 months without any hourly limit.

The ALX 2500 gains in process reliability thanks to its optimum chip flow and simple chip disposal, which is effected at the front. Maintenance parts can also be reached quickly and simply from there. The user-friendly, ergonomic design of the ALX 2500 is continued for the controls, as well, where DMG MORI relies on the proven 12.1″ COMPACTline with MAPPS Pro for 11.8 and 19.7 inches turning length and 15″ SLIMline with MAPPS IV for the longer versions.

As flexible serial production also plays a key role in automobile construction, DMG MORI offers the ALX 2500 with the optional installation of a gantry loader, which enables virtually unmanned and therefore extremely cost-effective production. Modular expansions for the automation solution, such as a measuring unit or deburring unit among others, are also available for even higher process integration.
