Complete System Competence for Maximum Productivity from DMG MORI


Top customised engineering: DMG MORI Systems combines technology, machine tool, automation and peripherals in holistically coordinated 360° solutions for your production systems.

Flexible automation guaranteeing process reliability is an elementary factor of success for a universally digitalised production world. With this in mind DMG MORI Systems already offers its customers the possibilities and competences to produce successfully here and now. And this performance commitment applies to every segment of automation technology: to machine-integrated automation as well as standard automation and on to include flexible manufacturing cells and comprehensive turnkey production lines.

The future is automatic
In the age of “Industry 4.0” the automation of manufacturing processes is gaining dynamically in importance. At the same time the merging of virtual and real production worlds demands an integral communication capability of machines, systems and components.

360° system competence
DMG MORI Systems meets this challenge of the future actively by offering a holistic range of services from a single source for technology, machine tool and automation solutions. This diverse service offer is based on the unique experience of DMG MORI in the sector of techno-logy design and automation that is bundled within DMG MORI Systems GmbH.

Added to this is the engineering expertise and strong partner structure that together with its experience enable DMG MORI Systems to configure and implement ideally aligned systems for every customer and every requirement. And it achieves this for a diverse range of workpieces, from a small precision part to tool moulds, and for a multitude of different lot sizes from single parts right through to serial production with automation solutions that range from standard to turnkey. The range is organised in four segments:

Segment 1: Machine-integrated automation

  • Integrated in the machine
  • Universal production

Segment 2: Standard automation

  • Solutions for tool, workpiece and pallet handling
  • Portal and robot solutions

Segment 3: Flexible manufacturing cells

  • Implementation of customer-specific machining processes combined with automation of in-house machines and third party products

Segment 4: Production lines

  • Planning, simulation and implementation of turnkey solutions based on the DMG MORI corner-type solution

Process reliability with maximum productivity in the turnkey sector
The interaction of different disciplines from technology, machine, automation and peripherals make turnkey projects the supreme disciple of automation and system technology. In addition to its wide range of products in the field of machine tools DMG MORI also offers proven expertise here in all fields – in the engineering of technological applications as well as in material flow and the required peripherals.


This consistent integration is in turn the basis for a high level of cost-efficiency, as Silvio Krüger, General Manager of DMG MORI Systems GmbH, explains: “The convincing features of the production lines include low unit costs, outstanding machining performance, a high system availability of over 95% and high output. They achieve the shortest cycle times and offer impressive flexibility where workpieces are concerned.” Parallel manufacturing processes are also possible and flexible programming leaves considerable scope in the production process.

Reliability and process stability are ensured by the use of advanced and proven technologies and products on the one hand and the global presence of DMG MORI on the other. “As a supplier for the globally organised automotive industry its goes without saying that we draw on our worldwide service network and a specially setup top-level support team to help customers quickly whenever the need arises”, stresses Silvio Krüger, calling our attention to the new Technology and Competence Center in Wernau near Stuttgart.

New Technology and Competence Centre in Wernau
With the aim of bundling and focussing the system competences already mentioned with the resources of the DMG MORI SEIKI Group even more intensively for our customer we are currently constructing a future-orientated Competence Center for tool and equipment techno-logy, control system design and project management in Wernau. The company is building a completely transparent 47,000 m2 factory that has an air-conditioned production area of over 12,000 m², six independent central coolant systems, a central extraction system for emissions from the dry machining process and a measuring room for cmk and cpk production approvals of 450 m².

Silvio Krüger sees the investment as a strategic milestone: “It is exactly here in the handling of turnkey projects that it is imperative to have the entire know-how ready to hand. The Technology Centre will allow us to optimise our structures and give customers the opportunity of getting a real impression of our engineering competence.”

It will also be possible to coordinate the global activities of DMG MORI with Nara, Japan and Davis, USA perfectly from this central location.
