DMG opens Technology Center
October 17, 2008 - DMG America proudly announces the grand opening of its new Technology Center in Cypress, California, in the greater Los Angeles area. This event will occur on October 22-24 from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. with seven machines in operation, highlighted by the new DMG ECO line of fully featured yet value-priced milling and turning centers, plus ongoing technical workshops, supplier representatives discussing their products and, in the spirit of the season, tasty Oktoberfest food and drink.

As a special incentive, DMG will offer an in-kind trade-in incentive of $5000 on the purchase of any ECO line machine bought during this event. Please attend this event to get all the details. Offer good only during the Grand Opening.

The new Los Angeles Technology Center comprises over 10,000 sq. ft. of office and showroom area, with a staff of 25 employees to handle all sales, service, training and application engineering tasks. Customers will be able to utilize the center for test cuts, time studies, operator training and more. This new DMG facility will be headed up by Mr. Udo Herbes, managing director for the location, who will supervise all operations and personnel.

At this event, a range of DMG milling, turning and advanced machining center technologies, plus tool presetters and unique devices for enhanced manufacturing, will be on display. All the following machine tools will be under power and running continuously throughout the event:

-CTX 310 ECO, advanced CNC universal turning technology at an affordable price for the job shop looking to expand its horizons; complete machining with up to six driven tools; 12-station turret; digital servo drives, programmable tailstock and linear roller guideways in all axes for higher dynamics; full visual displays for 3D simulation, setup and diagnostics; prices starting at $59,900

-CTX Beta 1250 TC, large capacity mill/turn center with integrated 24-position fast tool changer; powerful B-axis milling spindle for 5-axis simultaneous machining; universal control programming for cycle simulation; optional counter spindle and mill/turn spindle for turning lengths up to 49.2 in.; linear roller guideways in all axes for optimum machine dynamics

-MSL 42-7, a multi-slide automatic CNC turning center, seven NC axes with three stations for rear-side machining and turret with pick-up spindle for up to 14 tools; alternate style available with four-station tool changer for greater flexibility and higher productivity

-DMC 55 H ECO, recently introduced at IMTS; high-performance CNC milling center features duoBLOCK design from DMG, with high static mass in the bed and machine base, combining with weight optimization in all moving components for unmatched machine kinematics; 45-pocket wheel magazine with chip-to-chip times down to 3.9 seconds; 12,000 rpm motor spindle with optional 18,000 rpm; reduced idle time with ballscrew drive technology; 1,968.5 ft./lbs. feed and rapid traverse

- DMU 40 monoBLOCK, a new design with compact footprint and versatile five-axis simultaneous milling, for machining smaller workpieces with high-accuracy requirements in medical, aerospace and other demanding market applications

-DMC 635 V ECO, 3D software and the ability to mill high-tech components in three-axis vertical mode at an entry-level price; optional robotic workpiece handling; 8,000 rpm milling spindle; 20-position tool magazine; high dynamic axis drives with feeds to 984.3 ipm; full CNC with cycle simulation software onboard; rigid C-frame design for high precision and stability in precise cutting applications

- HSC 75 linear, high-speed cutting with 28,000 rpm spindle and HSK-A63 fittings standard; vertical machining center with superior resolution and maximum performance in three-axis simultaneous milling; all drives and guideways outside work area for optimal utilization of cutting theater; optional five-axis machining with gantry drive and swivel rotary table; advance DMG ERGOline® control for ease of use and reduction of programming time; specially designed controls for HSC work, including Automatic Tuning Control, Automatic Acceleration Control and Automatic Feedrate Control

The ECO line of machines from DMG, being showcased to the American market at this event, represents the company’s commitment to bring its high-quality, high-reliability equipment to the job shop, in a diverse offering of machine tools that are all competitively priced yet fully featured and backed by the application engineering, service and support for which DMG is known worldwide.

In addition, DMG will demonstrate its advanced VIO tool presetters for measurements up to 16.5 in. dia. A cast-iron tool bed, with high stability and torsion resistance, offer the maximum accuracy possible. Video edge detection combine with intelligent image processing from Microvision II or III basic with analog software enable error-free, fast transfer of all data to the instrument’s control.

During the event, selected suppliers to DMG such as Sandvik and Siemens will also be available to discuss their products and services, making this event a working machine tool show.

Furthermore, attendees will be able to participate in one-hour DMG workshops, to be held each day, covering such topics as high-speed cutting (HSC) for the mold & die industry, plus five-axis aerospace machining, medical machining, production machining and advanced manufacturing technologies for a variety of materials. An additional seminar will be conducted by Daniel Martinez, entitled “From blueprint to finished part in three easy steps,” relating to the new cycle simulation software now offered on many DMG machines.

As the DMG America marketing manager, Daniel Wenker, explains, “This event is designed to not only offer machine shop personnel a look at our new facility and enjoy a good time, it is also serving to demonstrate the commitment we’re making to the West Coast market with new machines, new services and a much larger application engineering and support team. Even in this IMTS year, there will be much to see for all attendees, whether they work in a job shop or major OEM. And I promise the beer will be cold, too,” he noted.

The event will run from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. each day, October 22-24, at DMG America, Los Angeles Technology Center, 5980 Lakeshore Drive, Cypress, CA 90630.
