DMG MORI plans to feature innovative machining technologies at Chicago Innovation Days in Hoffman Estates May 13-16, 2019. The event highlights include integrated digitization for planning, preparation, production, monitoring and service, automation solutions for competitive manufacturing and additive manufacturing with four process chains in the powder bed and with the powder nozzle. Additionally, DMG MORI will highlight innovations in aerospace, automotive, die & mold and medical. The company also will launch two U.S. premieres—the ALX 2000 and the DMP 70.

U.S premiere: ALX 2000

The ALX 2000, a U.S. premiere, is a stable, dynamic, and compact turning machine that combines standards from a max. spindle speed of 4,500 min-1 to the BMT turret with 12 powered tools and tailstock. In addition, the ALX 2000 offers a high degree of automation thanks to the optional gantry loader, a deciding factor for cost-effectiveness in production.

U.S. Premiere: DMP 70

As the successor of the MILLTAP 700 (with more than 3,000 machines installed), the new DMP 70 offers high productivity in a small space. With a footprint of 46.28ft² it is 10% smaller than the MILLTAP 700. DMG MORI has designed the compact production machine for applications in medical technology, job shops as well as the aerospace sector. Travel paths of 27x16x15 in. and the optional integrated swivel/rotary table enable five-axis simultaneous machining of a wide range of components. 

Other Highlights

The machine tool manufacturer will be showing a representative cross-section of its five-axis portfolio during the Innovation Days in Chicago. DMG MORI will present a DMU 50 3rd-generation automated with a PH 150 pallet handling, two monoBLOCK machines and two models from the duoBLOCK series as well as the DMU 200 Gantry. The ULTRASONIC 20 linear and the LASERTEC 3D machines for additive manufacturing complete the five-axis exhibits.

Additionally, DMG MORI is now enhancing its activities and offering complete solutions from one source under the label DMG MORI Qualified Products (DMQP). Coordinated interfaces, securing connectivity, price maintenance and defined warranty conditions ensure ongoing productivity increases for the manufacturing solutions of DMG MORI customers, according to the company.
