DMG MORI Manufacturing Days Event Draws High Number and High-Caliber Attendees
DMG MORI announced record attendance at its inaugural Manufacturing Days event, the Open House of the Davis factory.
DMG MORI (Davis, CA), a leading manufacturer of machine tools, announced record attendance at its inaugural Manufacturing Days event, the Open House of the Davis factory. The four-day, November 12–15, event brought more than 1,300 visitors through the company’s U.S. manufacturing facility and the adjacent Digital Technology Laboratory (DTL). The Open House event provided attendees with a look into the 200,000 sq ft manufacturing facility, as well as educational seminars and live cutting demos.
“Since opening DMG MORI Manufacturing in July of 2012, we wanted our customers and distributers to get the opportunity to spend time in the new facility and learn about how our machines are made,” says DMG MORI USA president Mark Mohr. “While our annual spring event, Innovation Days, will continue to show our customers what’s new and innovative, Manufacturing Days Davis’ focus is more on seeing behind the curtain and learning how our machines are developed—and how we continue to improve the applications.”
Highlights of the event included personal tours, speakers, and additional seminars on MTConnect, sustainability and a panel of peers discussing successes and failures on implementing new technology. The Open House also marks the North American introduction of CELOS. CELOS – from the idea to the finished product.
CELOS is a new interface that simplifies and accelerates production processes through integrated management, documentation and visualization of job, process and machine data. It is compatible with PPS– and ERP-systems and also can be linked to CAD/CAM software.
“We’d like to thank everyone who attended Manufacturing Days Davis this year and we look forward to this being a reoccurring event,” says Adam Hansel, chief technical officer of DTL. “We are proud of the facility and the work being done here and hope all attendees left with a true understanding that our machines are of the highest quality.”
