Machining Transformation (MX) by Process Integration, Automation, Digitization and Sustainability

Every 10 years, social needs change fundamentally. DMG MORI has constantly been evolving its business model to meet these needs with new products and services. Now, DMG MORI has matured into a Machining Transformation provider to drive Green Transformation (GX) through process integration and automation of machine tools.

The three areas of Process Integration, Automation and Digital Transformation (DX) have an impact on Green Transformation. The social contribution consists of the resulting sustainability but also includes the solution to the shortage of skilled staff through automation as well as the development of top talent. This can be ensured through an extensive training program as part of Digitization. The goal is to focus on the qualifications of all types of employees – from engineers to machine operators.

Machining Transformation (MX): The Revolution of Manufacturing

Process Integration

5-axis opens opportunities in process integration

Workpieces that were sequentially processed by multiple machines can now be manufactured in one technology-integrated machine in a single set-up, such as a 5-axis machine or a mill-turn center to achieve higher accuracy. Following such complex technology integration, automation leads to further resource optimization, such as compensation for lack of operators and eliminating intermediate work-in-process after each operation, which previously occupied shop floor space and costs. Digitization has helped optimize the machining process by visualizing and providing feedback from areas where operators cannot be involved due to automation.

Technology integration

Process Integration

High utilization of one machining center instead of partial utilization of several simple machines.

Technology Integration means that several processes such as turning, milling, grinding and measurement functions are combined in one machine tool for higher productivity. This integration reduces the number of operators needed, frees them from having to carry out multiple setups and contributes to a rewarding working environment within a company. More time can be devoted to high-value-added operations, making work more rewarding for staff.

Technology integration

The integration of several technologies like Turn-Mill, Mill-Turn (FD), ULTRASONIC, LASERTEC, and ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING (DED / DED hybrid) in a single machine tool ensures higher productivity, saves resources and reduces CO2 emissions.

Process Integration for Enhanced Efficiency: Revolutionizing Manufacturing with DMG MORI



Automation systems for minimally attended or lights-out and / or weekend shifts

DMG MORI's range of automation systems includes workpiece handling and transport systems, pallet handling systems that transport pallets with fixtured workpieces and tool handling systems that transport cutters to the machines. The company offers a wide range, from small automation systems for single machines to automation for large production lines.

Benefits of automation

  • Easy to use: Automation is not rocket science
  • Proven technology: You are already using automation
  • Night shifts and weekends: Let the machine work over night
  • Become more competitive: Reduce your cost per part
  • Flexibility: No mass production? – no problem!
  • Sustainability: Often 1 automated system can replace 3 stand-alone machines

Digital Transformation (DX)

Technology integration

From CAD-CAM solutions and post-processors to simulation

Establishing a competitive advantage by improving workflows, creating new opportunities, and reducing power consumption.

The integrated Digitization approach is more than just an effective method to raise productivity. The applications reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions, including increasing the productive spindle hours due to faster programming at or near the machine.

Digital transformation models automatically promote green transformation: The customer can improve productivity and reduce unnecessary energy consumption by working on Digitization. This also reduces CO2 emissions. In other words, embracing Digitization will also lead to Green Transformation.

Green Transformation (GX)

Technology integration


Technology integration saves resources and reduces CO2 emissions, automation leads to longer machine runtimes and Digitization reduces power consumption for customers.

The GX approach is more than the mere reduction of CO2 emissions. It also aims to cut unnecessary work-in-progress and intermediate inventory to realize lean production anywhere in the world. GX has the potential to conserve global resources as well as transform people and the environment.

Social Contribution

The three areas of Technology Integration, Automation, and Digital Transformation impact on Green Transformation. In addition, they thrive on the cycle of constant learning and further development. The result is a social contribution by the organization:

  • Technology Integration maximizes management resources and minimizes environmental impact
  • Automation helps to solve a shortage of operators
  • Digital Transformation supports the development of talent through extensive training programs
