DMG MORI opens Norwegian branch as off 1st of July 2016. Alongside the strong customer centric sales and service network in Europe, DMG MORI launches direct support for Norway as one of the most important manufacturers of metal-cutting machine tools worldwide. “We are proud to offer our Norwegian customers world class products, services, spare parts and never the less know-how, direct from the manufacturer without any intermediary. Our expertise in product development, manufacturing, automation and service solutions are at the disposal of our customers to insure best productivity and increased profitability” emphasises Ramin Safavi, General Manager Norway. In particular, the highly motivated Norwegian sales and service team will support its customers on their way to digital transformation of manufacturing process chains with the app-based CELOS® system and other intelligent DMG MORI Software Solutions.
The topic “Industry 4.0” is dominating the discussion of the future like no other, even in the sector of machine tool construction. This in turn means that software is also becoming more and more important, even in the manufacturing environment. That is why companies in the branch are keeping a close eye on the developments and are fully aware that the foundations for Industry 4.0 must be laid in everyday manufacturing now and in the near future. DMG MORI supports its customers with the digital transformation on the basis of integral, seamless solutions.
A key building block in DMG MORI’s customer-oriented digitalisation strategy is the app-based CELOS® system, which the machine tool manufacturer first presented around three years ago and which it has consistently continued to develop in a targeted manner ever since. Using this uniform user interface for machine and office PC employees in shop floor and job scheduling can manage, document and visualise job order, process and machine data.
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 % time saving in tooling times and 50 % 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®.
Due to the continuous development of future applications, CELOS® offers a smooth entry into software products related to Industry 4.0. Customers who decide for CELOS® today receive firstly unlimited access to the existing 16 CELOS® APPs and secondly the chance to benefit from future applications – because CELOS® is and will remain upwardly compatible.
These benefits alone minimise the barrier to entry enormously. And what is more, the CONTROL APP® from CELOS® enables the continued use of existing programmes, so employees can go on working in their familiar programming and control environments.
CELOS® enables smooth entry into the future of metal cutting production, because this takes place gradually. Customers who decide for CELOS® today receive firstly unlimited access to the existing 16 CELOS® APPs and secondly they open up the chance of benefiting from future applications.
Shop-floor-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 / Turn & Mill or rather milling / Mill & Turn in its portfolio. These enable the operator to realise complex machining operations up to 80 % faster directly on the machine via parameterised context menus.
Outstanding examples here include the machining of free-form surfaces using 5-axis interpolation or various cycles for gear production, such as gear hobbing and DMG MORI gearSKIVING®. Other Technology Cycle highlights include the Machine Protection Control of machines, workpiece and tool via embedded sensor in the milling spindle of Turn & Mill and milling machines. 3D quickSET® toolkit for checking and correcting the kinematic accuracy of 4 and 5-axis milling machines or the Application Tuning Cycle for the process-oriented tuning of feed drives are additional examples of the available 24 DMG MORI exclusive Technology Cycles.
Furthermore, DMG MORI are working continuously on improving the existing Technology Cycles to meet the demands of more customers. In this year, two new versions will be presented live on the machines. Multi-Threading 2.0 and Easy Tool Monitoring 2.0 for producing various kinds of thread geometries and protecting the machine axis in case of overload, collision or tool breakage during the machining process.
In other words, DMG MORI focuses on the person in every one of its strategies for the future, even in the case of the future trend Smart Factory. The machine tool manufacturer sees optimum integration of employee potential as the key success factor in the implementation of new production principles. This applies above all to the operation of machine tools due to the complex tasks this involves.
Workshop-oriented programming is still of great importance, especially in single item production and the production of small and medium-sized quantities. 24 exclusive DMG MORI Technology Cycles enable 80 % faster direct programming on the machine via a dialog. Outstanding examples here include various cycles for gear cutting or gearwheel production.
