For the open house event in the DECKEL MAHO factory in Pfronten from February 18 to 22, DMG MORI expects more than 6,000 trade visitors from all over the world. A crowd puller will be the seven world premieres and the new Corporate Design with CELOS – from the idea to the finished product.
CELOS offers a common interface for all new high-tech machines from DMG MORI. CELOS APPs provide the user with integrated and digitised management, documentation and visualisation of order, process and machine data. International visitors to the event can also experience the new Corporate Design on 18 machines: the new long life surfaces provide a higher scratch resistance and better protection against damages.
A total of 24 world premieres will be presented in 2014 – seven of them will be exhibited during the open house event in Pfronten. Among them the CTX beta 800 TC, the two new models DMC 850 V and DMC 1150 V to complement the DMC V series, the DMC 80 FD duoBLOCK® and the DMC 80 H duoBLOCK® – two additional machines of the fourth generation of duoBLOCK® machines –, the DMU 270 P as well as the DMU 70 ecoline.
The LASERTEC 65 AdditiveManufacturing, which premiered at EUROMOLD 2013, will be among the highlights in Pfronten. Here, DMG MORI is showcasing demanding milling processes as well as additive manufacturing in one setup. On the one hand, the unique combination of laser metal deposition via powder nozzle and milling accelerates the process. Complete workpieces can be generated up to 20-times faster as compared to the powder bed process. On the other hand, unique machining operations are possible – for instance the realisation of geometric features with negative angles. Thanks to these characteristics, additive manufacturing opens up new perspectives in the machining of large workpieces as required by the aerospace or other industries.
This year’s Open House Pfronten focuses on new technologies in die & mould, high-speed-cutting and aerospace applications, which will be complemented by seminar series tailored to visitors’ interests. Other highlights include XXL-Machining and DMG MORI Automation which will be presented in dedicated areas at the DECKEL MAHO factory. Moreover, DMG MORI will focus on LifeCycle Services, an area gaining more and more importance in the light of the company’s steady global growth.

Additive and subtractive machining in one setup: LASERTEC 65 Additive Manufacturing
Additive manufacturing offers new possibilities for high complexity and individuality and the market for additive technologies is growing quickly. DMG MORI’s unique hybrid solution combines milling and laser metal deposition processes for additive manufacturing. The concept study of the LASERTEC 65 Additive Manufacturing is based on a DMU 65 monoBLOCK® machine and has been developed by SAUER LASERTEC in Pfronten, Germany, in collaboration with DMG MORI USA.
The LASERTEC 65 Additive Manufacturing features a diode laser mounted in place of a cutting tool and the material is added by spraying metallic powder into the laser beam, melting the powder in layers into the base material. The process is up to 20 times faster than laser sintering in a powder bed. The LASERTEC 65 Additive Manufacturing combines highly compact 5-axis milling and laser metal deposition, featuring a 2 kW diode laser. All common metal powders can be processed, including steel, nickel and cobalt alloys, brass or titanium. Wear protection layers can also be applied on the base material. A strength of this process is that it can be used to build up a number of similar or differing metal layers, which can then be machined to the required accuracy before the next layers are added and the area would not be accessible for the milling cutter or other cutting tools.
For integral parts which are traditionally milled with a material waste rate of 95% and more, a significant cost saving can be achieved and the rate of waste can be reduced to about 5%. The concept study first shown at the Euromold exhibition in Frankfurt last year can machine workpieces with a diameter of up to 500 mm, 360 mm in height weighing max. 1 t. Bigger workpieces are conceivable.
Series production of the LASERTEC 65 Additive Manufacturing is planned for autumn 2014.
With the LASERTEC 65 Additive Manufacturing, DMG MORI presents a unique machine which integrates laser metal deposition in a full-scale 5-axis milling machine.
