DMG Mori Manufacturing Days in Davis, CaliforniaClick image to enlarge

More than 1,300 people attended DMG Mori's Manufacturing Days event, held November 12-15, held at the company's Davis, CA, facility.

 

Manufacturers from Canada and the US attended the four-day event, which included a tour of the 200,000 sq ft manufacturing facility, 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."

Plasma cutter vs torch – you make the call

When it comes to cutting metal, most fabricators would point to plasma cutting or oxyfuel cutting as the two most popular techniques. Both techniques have their pros and cons, advantages and disadvantages, and cheerleaders and detractors. And, as you might expect, choosing the most suitable cutting system for the job is not necessarily straightforward. The choice depends on the application, the type and thickness of the material to be cut, quality of the cut, operational costs, location of the job, and many other factors.
