Approximately 1,600 people attended the recent Innovation Days event at DMG/Mori Seiki.
In early May, DMG/Mori Seiki USA hosted its annual Innovation Days event at its U.S. headquarters in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Approximately 1,600 people attended the three-day event, which featured more than 30 milling, turning and multitasking machines in the company’s large showroom. This included the company’s full line of X-Class machines, which is said to combine precision, reliability, rigidity and affordability, as well as the U.S. debut of the five-axis DMU 65 monoblock machine. This machine combines the stability benefits of the company’s single-casting monoblock construction with a swivel rotary table.
The event’s seminars covered topics such as MTConnect, the Reshoring Initiative, Boeing production methods, setup time reduction techniques and shopfloor communication improvement strategies. A variety of machining equipment manufacturers were on hand, too, presenting tabletop exhibits displaying tooling, inspection, software and related shopfloor product offerings.
The company also recently appointed a new president, Mark Mohr, who will oversee the operations of all technical centers across the country to optimize the value of the DMG and Mori Seiki collaboration in America. Mr. Mohr will also continue to focus on the importance of total customer care and the advantages of DMG/Mori Seiki 360 support.
