More value creation through integral automation solutions

With flexible workpiece handling and palette automation systems, DMG MORI supports its customers on their path towards autonomous manufacturing.

  • An intelligent combination of machine tool and automation solution
  • Automation solutions for all DMG MORI machines
    • Production plants supply the machine and the automation system from a single source
    • Hardware and software – perfectly coordinated
  • The range of services extends from standard automation and customer-specific automation solutions to turnkey solutions
  • Robo2Go 2nd Generation: Flexible automation, simple to program
  • DMU 50 2nd Generation: autonomous production with PH 150 pallet handling

Automated machines are crucial components of a digital factory and therefore an integral part of intelligent and networked production. DMG MORI sees automation in this way as a strategic future-oriented field. Like all plants in the group, the production plant in Ulyanovsk also has an important role in the development and implementation of automation solutions. Its portfolio ranges from technical consultations and budgeting to possible modifications to machines in use and on to include installation and commissioning. The experts in Ulyanovsk also assume other optimizations, the tooling and teaching of robots, so customers receive a complete automation solution from a single source. DMG MORI will demonstrate its automation expertise at the Metalloobrabotka using the examples of a CTX beta 800 TC with Robo2Go and a DMU 50 2nd Generation with PH 150 pallet handling.

Designing user-specific automation solutions requires a high degree of flexibility and experience. Expertise in this field is to be found directly in the plants at DMG MORI, as is also the case in at Ulyanovsk MT. The required flexibility is based on modular building blocks consisting of production cells and systems, which can be configured and adapted individually. DMG MORI also has a holistic approach to the design of automation solutions that considers the entire value creation chain and so ensures the system can be integrated ideally into the process.​​​​​​​

Robo2Go 2nd Generation: flexible automation, simply programmed

DMG MORI developed the Robo2Go 2nd Generation as a flexible robotic automation for the turning centers of the CLX and CLX series as well as the turn & mill complete machining centers of the CTX TC series. DMG MORI will be showcasing the robot at Metalloobrabotka on a CTX beta 800 TC. Thanks to its new software, the second generation can be operated intuitively. The processes can be created quickly and simply with the Robo2Go 2nd Generation based on predefined program modules and even without any knowledge of robot programming. This means that teaching a new workpiece takes less than five minutes, making the Robo2Go 2nd Generation an ideal and flexible solution for small and medium-sized batches.

DMU 50 2nd Generation with PH 150 pallet handling

As an example for productive handling of pallets DMG MORI will demonstrate the DMU 50 2nd Generation with a PH 150 pallet handling. The 5-axis milling machine is known for its versatility in machining complex parts. Combined with the PH 150 it allows an efficient and even autonomous production of workpieces over longer periods. The pallet handling offers space for up to 24 pallets with a maximum pallet size of ø 500 x 500 mm. It is designed for a workpiece weight of 250 kg.
