CELOS and Industry 4.0 – Products and solutions for the digital transformation
The topic “Industry 4.0” is dominating the discussion of the future like no other, even in the sector of machine tool construction. As the leading manufacturer of metal removing machine tools worldwide, DMG MORI supports its customers on their way to digital transformation with the app-based CELOS system and other intelligent software solutions like the DMG MORI process chain and Technology Cycles from DMG MORI.
Thanks to its open architecture, CELOS allows the exchange of information with higher–level structures in addition to its effects in the shop floor area. So CELOS offers customers complete integration of their machines in the company organisation while simultaneously creating today the interface of metal cutting production in the cyber-physical production system of the future. The benefits in day-to-day operation are convincing: a 30 percent time saving in tooling times and 50 percent lower time and effort for the calculation of technology values or the search for important information are just a few of the effects that can be achieved with CELOS.
The DMG MORI process chain is a prime example of a successful digital transformation and a practical link from the virtual to the real world. Based on different kind of modules, the DMG MORI Process Chain provides programming and simulation software solutions. Thus allowing perfect planning, effective prevention of collisions and a reduction of setup time to an absolute minimum. For example, the importance of the DMG MORI Virtual Machine is comparable to that of the racing simulator for the pilots. It enables a 1:1 simulation under real conditions – including machine kinematics and control. The result is a high degree of safety and speed in the (exciting) real world.
Workshop-oriented programming is still of great importance especially in single item production and the production of small and medium-sized quantities – and it will remain just as important for a long time to come. Whereby working with cycles is now state-of-the-art and standard cycles for turning, milling and drilling have long been included in the performance range of modern controls. Based on its decades of application experience DMG MORI has gone far beyond the standard and currently has 24 exclusive DMG MORI Technology Cycles for the fields of turning / turning-milling or rather milling / milling-turning in its portfolio. These enable the operator in the shopfloor to programme complex machining up to 80 % faster by directly using the parameterised context menus in the dialog of the control.
