Automated machines are crucial components of a digital factory and are therefore an integral part of Industry 4.0. DMG MORI is the pioneer of digitalisation in machine tool construction, and considers automation to be a core topic. One in four new machines from DMG MORI is already provided with an automation solution. In future every machine shall be fitted with automation on the basis of a modular system. The product range consists of the proven PH 150 pallet handling system, which will be shown at Metalloobrabotka in combination with a DMU 50 and a DMU 50 ecoline produced in Russia at Ulyanovsk MT, the RS 3 rotary pallet magazine and the WH 3 workpiece handling system, as well as the newly developed, flexible GX gantry loader in the VERTICO design.
Future-proof automation – ex works and from a single source
Automated machine tools as part of future-oriented production guarantee users a high degree of competitiveness. This is precisely why DMG MORI has helped its customers to create the best possible automation solution for every application. The reasons for automation are as diverse as the possible automation solutions. Cost effectiveness, flexibility and reliability are just three examples of the possible benefits. Only an automation solution has a higher level of repeat accuracy than any manual workpiece clamping and unclamping operation. The introduction of automation solutions requires extensive planning following an initial needs assessment. At DMG MORI, this will be carried out in future in the relevant production plants by specialised contacts. In Russia engineering departments at Ulyanovsk MT and the Moscow Technology and Solutions Centre develop individual automation solutions for their customers.
A solution promised for all applications
The machine tool manufacturer is achieving its goal of enabling automation solutions for each and every DMG MORI machine with a wide range of pallet and workpiece handling systems. DMG MORI showed this extensive portfolio of products in the new, uniform VERTICO design at the EMO 2017. The long-proven standard automation systems include the RS 3 rotary magazine solution, PH 150 pallet handling system, and the WH 3 workpiece handling system. PH 150 pallet handling system which will be shown at Metalloobrabotka in combination with a DMU 50 5-axis and DMU 50 ecoline machines made in Russia also demonstrates the future oriented focus of Ulyanovsk Machine Tool to encompass automation solutions. The PH 150 offers space for up to 24 pallets. The maximum pallet size is ø 500 x 500 mm with a workpiece weight of up to 250 kg and is also suitable for locally produced DMC V ecoline machines.
