Digital assembly supported by TULIP
The new monoBLOCK Excellence Factory also sets new standards in terms of digitization. TULIP is an important component in the flow assembly. The US start-up’s software enables users without programming skills to create their own applications quickly and intuitively. With the help of the no-code platform, DMG MORI has developed an app solution that shows employees the necessary assembly information for each cycle with machine-specific work plans. Assembly processes of newly implemented equipment or special options is aided by detailed drawings, pictures and video instructions.
TULIP also helps with upholding quality standards consistently: “Interactive checklists and inspection plans document the entire assembly process in real time and ensure continuous quality control during assembly,” explains Musch. Information is available in the TULIP app in real time – along the entire value chain: There is a connection to the existing ERP system in place as well as a network right through to the suppliers.
DMG MORI passes the increased productivity on to its customers: All prices for monoBLOCK models are reduced by € 10,000, and the accuracy package is also integrated into the standard. This results in a price advantage of € 30,000 for customers.
The automated and digitized processes around the monoBLOCK Excellence Factory make the assembly line the most modern in machine tool manufacturing. Its realization was a logical step for DMG MORI, as Michael Horn summarizes: “The high demand proves that monoBLOCK machines are an important component of our portfolio.” With the monoBLOCK Excellence Factory, DMG MORI has created a basis for further advancing production processes and offering short delivery times with a full product mix. “The new monoBLOCK Excellence Factory offers us and our customers so many advantages that we will also transfer this concept to other plants.”
