Crowded house - visitors at the DMG/Mori Seiki Open House in Germany
A record 6000 visitors from around the globe attended the annual DMG/Mori Seiki Open House at the Deckel Maho plant in Pfronten, Germany earlier this year.
 
The five-day event featured over 70 machines, six of which were world premieres.
 
Making their debut on the world stage were the CTX beta 2000 and the European-made NLX 2500/SY 700 universal turning machines, the DMU 125 FD monoBLOCK and DMU 65 FT monoBLOCK 5-axis universal milling machines, and the DMC 80 H linear 5-axis horizontal milling centre, which features linear drives on all axes.
 
Also unveiled was the high-precision DIXI 210 P 5-sided, 5-axis universal milling machine. This product boasts an error tolerance of less than or equal to 0.004mm and a rapid traverse of up to 60m per minute.
 
More than half of the attendees were from overseas, including a strong contingent from Australia and New Zealand.
 
Stefan Weiwadel, President DMG/Mori Seiki Australia was pleased to see customers exchanging information, making new contacts and seeking expert advice.
 
Weiwadel said one Australian customer had the unique experience of seeing his new machine being assembled on the production line at the Deckel Maho plant.
 
“The open house gave customers an opportunity to gain insight into the versatility and professionalism of the company, and to see how it was organised,” he said.
 
The open house featured an exhibition space showcasing 12 automation system solutions designed to help customers achieve maximum productivity, and presentations from Boeing and Rolls Royce, which shed light on the latest developments and innovations in the aerospace industry.
 
For Weiwadel, the highlight of these presentations was learning how DMG/ Mori Seiki can continue to support and contribute to the aerospace industry's targets and success.
 
Customers were also given the chance to experience some of the local German attractions.
 
A half-day tour of Munich and visits to Neuschwanstein castle and the Zötler Brewery were included in the event program.
 
“It was great to put names to faces and spend time with customers,” said Weiwadel.
 
“We have set the target to become the market leader in Australia and New Zealand over the next two years, so I look forward to putting names to many more faces in the future.”
 
DMG and Mori Seiki, two worldwide leading machine tool manufacturers, enjoy a strategic global partnership.
 
Product lines include DMG and Mori Seiki high precision machining centres, turning centres and multi/5-axis machines.
 
The company is also renowned for its Ultrasonic range for machining of advanced materials, Lasertec technologies for surface texturing and the Ecoline series of advanced machining centres.
