DMG MORI Opens New Tech Center and Showroom in Southwest Ohio
Site to provide customer support and training for technologies such as five-axis machining and multifunction turning centers.
Manufacturers from throughout the region attended the ribbon cutting and open house for the new West Chester, Ohio, location.
This week, DMG MORI officially opened a new tech center and showroom in the Cincinnati area. The ribbon cutting at the new West Chester, Ohio, location was yesterday.
The primary purpose of the 15,000-square-foot facility is for customer support and training. DMG MORI USA CEO Thorsten Schmidt noted that the majority of the staff at the new site are service personnel and applications engineering specialists.
In his remarks at the opening event, he also described the significance of the region. The machine tool builder estimates there are 2,000 manufacturing sites within 150 miles of the new tech center that are candidates for technology such as the various five-axis machining centers and multifunction turning centers running within the facility. See the company’s event page for a complete list of the machine tools currently operating at the new Ohio location.
A manufacturer that is distinctive for its attention to in-cycle machining productivity describes its efforts to obtain efficiency improvements outside of the machining cycle. The shop’s primary tool is a simple, daily, graphical recap that illustrates when each machine tool was and was not making parts.
Finally there is an alternative to ballnose endmills for finishing 3D parts. The combination of finishing tools shaped to provide more cutting surface and a CAM system with the ability to apply them on a five-axis machining center can dramatically reduce finishing cycle times while delivering better surface finishes.
A provider of machine shop training offers these questions for benchmarking metalworking knowledge.
