DMG MORI HEITEC: Joint venture supplies standardized and customized automation solutions
Future-proof automation – ex works and from a single source
Automated machine tools as part of future-oriented production guarantee users a high degree of competitiveness. This is precisely why DMG MORI has helped its customers to create the best possible automation solution for every application. The reasons for automation are as diverse as the possible automation solutions. Cost effectiveness, flexibility and reliability are just three examples of the possible benefits. Only an automation solution has a higher level of repeat accuracy than any manual workpiece clamping and unclamping operation. The introduction of automation solutions requires extensive planning following an initial needs assessment. At DMG MORI, this will be carried out in future in the relevant production plants by specialised contacts.
A solution promised for all applications
The machine tool manufacturer is achieving its goal of enabling automation solutions for each and every DMG MORI machine with a wide range of pallet and workpiece handling systems. DMG MORI showed this extensive portfolio of products in the new, uniform VERTICO design at the EMO 2017. The long-proven standard automation systems include the PH 150 pallet handling system, the RS 3 rotary magazine solution and the WH 3 workpiece handling system.
A new addition to this range is the GX 6 gantry loader, which is suitable for all models in the CLX series. DMG MORI developed the gantry automation system based on the proven gantry loader for the NLX series. It handles workpieces that weigh up to 6 kg. Another new addition is iLoading, an automation system for large quantities and small components weighing up to 5 kg. With its Robo2Go, DMG MORI also has a workpiece handling solution in its range which can be put to flexible use on a number of universal turning machines and which cuts an impressive figure as it is easy to program with CELOS. DMG MORI creates larger manufacturing cells comprising several machines using linear pallet pools (LPPs) and robotic automation systems.
DMG MORI is supplementing its wide range of standard automation systems with application-specific solutions, which can be individually tailored to customers’ needs with the aid of robots. “These are turnkey offers which link any number of machines and process-supporting work steps to one another. The integral range of services extends from planning and simulation, to the final handover of the turnkey complete system.
