ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING – complex 3D components with powder nozzle or in a powder bed
DMG MORI positions itself as a full-line provider in the additive manufacturing of metallic components in addition to machining with the LASERTEC 3D and LASERTEC SLM series.
DMG MORI is successful on the market in ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING with laser deposition welding using a powder nozzle. Selective laser melting in a powder bed now expands the product portfolio. In other words DMG MORI demonstrates its integral competence by bringing together the key generative manufacturing processes under one roof and ranks as a full-line provider in both the additive manufacturing of metallic components and in post processing.
The LASERTEC 3D and LASERTEC SLM series are the cornerstones of DMG MORI’s strategic orientation in this future technology. While the LASERTEC 3D hybrid successfully combines laser deposition welding by means of powder nozzle and 5-axis milling, the LASERTEC SLM series stands for selective laser melting in a powder bed. “Both technologies complement each other ideally in our product range. We are present globally for our customers with our Additive Manufacturing Excellence Centers in Bielefeld, Pfronten, Tokyo, Shanghai und Chicago.”, explains Patrick Diederich, responsible for the Advanced Technologies division. Great importance is attached in particular to the powder bed process: “This technology has a market share of 80 percent where the additive manufacturing of metallic components is concerned.” The latest innovation stages of the two processes will be presented at the EMO integrated in continuous process chains.

Low unit costs, automated processes and a high degree of flexibility are the key factors in an efficient production. As a leader of technology in the metal cutting sector DMG MORI is called upon to create ever more economical CNC solutions that will ensure its customers a competitive edge. To achieve this the machine tool manufacturer develops and realises holistic, application-specific turnkey solutions for the aerospace, automotive, die & mold and medical sectors in its DMG MORI Technology Centers. Experts from DMG MORI are involved in the development of customer projects at a very early stage. Together with its customers DMG MORI gains important experience and extensive knowledge. Both are used equally in the development of new machines and components right through to turnkey production solutions.
DMG MORI Aerospace Excellence Center
“Especially where the multitude of components and materials is concerned our customers benefit from the wide range of our machines and technologies. During the EMO in Hannover we will be showcasing highly dynamic horizontal centres for aluminium and CRP components, duoBLOCK machines for the high-speed milling of aluminium as well as turn-mill technology such as mill-turn centres with integrated grinding function and a unique solution for the use of angle heads with automatic changeover of front tools for reliable processes in the 5-axis complete machining of rotationally symmetrical workpieces. There is virtually no component for which DMG MORI cannot offer a production solution.” explains Michael Kirbach, Head of the DMG MORI Aerospace Excellence Center in Pfronten.
DMG MORI Automotive Excellence Center
“Under the motto ‘A full Automotive Technology Integration’ we will be presenting complete solutions or rather an integral modular system consisting of high-performance machine tools, integral technologies, automation solutions and intelligent software. This guarantees our customers maximum availability and process reliability in the automotive industry”, says Markus Piber, Managing Director of DECKEL MAHO Pfronten GmbH, about the range of services for automotive customers.
DMG MORI Die & Mold Excellence Center
“Die and mold construction are among our core competences. Great importance has been placed on die & mold applications at DMG MORI for decades, which on the one hand has resulted in our enormous experience in this field and on the other has given and continues to give rise to path-breaking technologies. The demands on precision, long-term accuracy and surface qualities are met with high-precision and dynamic machining centres.”, says Markus Rehm, Managing Director of DECKEL MAHO Seebach GmbH.
DMG MORI Medical Excellence Center
“Medical technology in particular faces special challenges such as the use of materials that are difficult to machine – magnesium and CrCo, that require individual machine solutions. Whereby the technological possibilities are not in fact the limiting factor here, instead it is the high demands on the certification requirements and standardisation that determine the process in medical technology. The necessary expertise with regard to technology and efficient machining strategies are brought together in standardised, integral manufacturing solutions at the Medical Excellence Center Seebach. The resulting customer benefit lies in considerably simplified certification of machine solutions that fulfil worldwide standards.” Marcus Krüger, Head of the Medical Excellence Center in Seebach.
