DMG MORI with 10 world premieres at EMO
DMG MORI will be confirming its status as a world market leader in the field of metal-cutting machine tools with 10 world premieres as well as a representative cross-section of its high-tech portfolio at the EMO in Milan.
The EMO in Milan will provide DMG MORI with the perfect showcase for new advanced technologies and innovative products. From 5 to 10 October 2015, the technology partner will be presenting 10 world premieres at its stand in Hall 4. In the field of turning technology, there are 4 world firsts: the production turning machine SPRINT 32|5 (including the equally new extension stage to SPRINT 32|8) built in Italy, the second generation of the turning & milling machines CTX gamma TC in two sizes and the NLX 6000|2000 turning/milling centre for large components. The three milling innovations all originate this time from the 4th generation of the duoBLOCK series. Other highlights of DMG MORI’s trade fair presentation are the introduction of three world premieres in the ecoMill V series and the automatic lathes from DMG MORI WASINO that have been strengthening the DMG MORI product range since 1 April 2015.
Thanks to two Italian production sites, the EMO in Milan will be something of a home match for DMG MORI. Since 1969, GILDEMEISTER Italiana S.p.A. from Bergamo has been synonymous with high performance lathe technology and within the Group has a special focus on production and automatic lathe machines. Now that its site has been modernised and extended last year, DMG MORI will be setting new standards in the manufacture of machine tools. A new 1,200 m2 assembly hall has been created – accompanied by a 1,000 m2 technology centre, in which customized solutions and innovative high-tech machines are developed and can be presented to customers under production conditions.
The EMO world premiere SPRINT 32|5 and its upgrade SPRINT 32|8 are “made in Italy” as well as the universal turning machines NLX 2500SY|700 and CTX alpha 500. The turning & milling machining centre CTX beta 1250 TC, the production turning machine SPRINT 50 and the automatic multi-spindle machine GMC 20 ISM are other EMO exhibits made in Italy.
SPRINT 32|5 and SPRINT 32|8– Extension of the successful SPRINT series for parts with diametres of up to 32 mm
The SPRINT 32|5 is designed for both short and long turning of workpieces of up to ø 32 x 600 mm. With a base area of less than 2.8 m², the new development is an extremely compact production facility. The SPRINT 32|5 machines materials in rod form up to 32 mm in diameter using two spindles and a 2-channel controller. DMG MORI keeps part costs to a minimum in this way. 22 tools on two independent workpiece carriers also make it possible to carry out complex machining processes. The automatic lathe also machines demanding workpieces radially at the main spindle with four driven tools. In total, the machine is equipped with five linear axes and on C-axis for the main spindle. Other options are the unloading device for workpieces up to 600 mm in length, and the high-pressure coolant supply with 120 bar.
As an upgrade, DMG MORI is presenting the SPRINT 32|8 at EMO as another extension of the SPRINT range. The SPRINT 32|8 is equipped with 3 independent linear carriers for 4-axis machining on the main spindle and offers space for up to 28 tools. The machine has six linear axes in total including a second Y-axis. Two C-axes are available as well – one for the main spindle, one for the counter spindle. In addition to the attainable pluses in performance and flexibility in relation to complex components, the ergonomic operation and the durable construction underline the performance of this innovation.
