DMG MORI opens new tech centre in Canada
- November 18, 2014
"We wanted to have an open house for our customers to showcase new machines with new designs and the CELOS control. We have 12 machines on the floor and because this is a tech centre we can run tests for customers," says Daniel Medrea, managing director of DMG MORI ELLISON in Canada.
Mark Mohr, president of DMG MORI North America, who was on hand to celebrate the grand opening, says the tech centre strengthens DMG MORI's position in Canada because it provides stronger technical support for the company's customer base. He adds that the new DMG MORI is also a stronger company.
"We can walk into any customer facility and we now have something for everyone because of the range of technologies and machines we now offer," says Mohr. "And with the new Tech Centre, we've shortened the supply chain because our machines are directly accessible to customers."
Close to 500 customers are expected to turn out for the four-day event to see new machines and new technologies, including machines equipped with linear drive technology and the CTX beta 800 TC ultra compact turning/milling machine equipped a new spindle, the HSK-A63, which the company says offers 20 per cent more torque.
Despite its small footprint 91.5 ft2 (8.5 m2), the CTX beta 800 TC machine offers 6.7 in. (170 mm) of additional space with a new B axis and accommodates workpieces with diameters up to 19.7 in. ( 500. 38 mm) and 31.5 in. (800.1 mm) turning lengths. Another highlight was the company's new HMI, CELOS, equipped with multiple apps for management, documentation and visualiziation of order, process and machine data. The new technology will be available for new machines.
The event runs until Friday, November 21. The new facility is located at 395 Ambassador Drive in Mississauga, ON.
