After more than five decades of machine-tool manufacturing, DMG / MORI SEIKI brings its model of efficiency and innovation to American shores. Learn about the machines and methods employed in this high-tech, 200,000-square-foot facility, as well as the benefits it brings to American manufacturers.
Once it seemed as though making things in the U.S. was going to become less important. But outsourcing can be wasteful, and as Henry Ford proved early in the 20th century, small manufacturing plants can be both productive and cost-effective. What’s more, there is a growing interest in manufacturing among young people, people who one might imagine would be more interested in bits rather than atoms.
The traditional installation of high pressure coolant, chillers, mist collectors, etc has resulted in a CNC machine surrounded by individual components that all require their own floor space and connections. Learn about new technology which allows you to integrate peripherals for a more efficient operation, lower investment and a smaller footprint.
MillTap 700 is the first machine to be jointly developed by both DMG and Mori Seiki engineers. Learn how this compact and economical vertical machining center achieves both the milling power of a VMC and the ultra-high speed of a drill tap center. The presenter will explain the concept behind the innovative MillTap automation cell on display in the showroom.
If standard chucks are insufficient due to aggressive cutting standards or complex part holding, realign your workholding system and think outside the box. Whether a low or high-volume operation, you can overcome challenges, reduce scrap and improve productivity with custom-engineered workholding.
Increased global competition creates the need for manufacturers to explore different methods of optimizing their manufacturing processes. Robotic automation allows manufacturers to compete with low-wage competitors and bring work back from overseas. Mr. Burg has constructed this seminar for managers who want to increase productivity, reduce costs and enhance part quality. Cory Ooyen, President of Global Gear in Downers Grove, IL will provide background on their robotic investment to impact production efficiency and profitability.
When investing in excellent machinery, carefully planning the accessories makes a big difference in economic justification of the product. Join this session to learn how planning the proper conveyor and coolant systems for your machine will improve ROI.
During this fast-paced presentation, Rod Jones will map out how technology and innovation will reshape the creation of tomorrow’s high-tech workers. Learn about the dramatic shifts that will occur in training -- costs, content, tools, providers and delivery -- over the next 10 years. Rod will link the world of today’s 8th graders with your future multi-axis CNC technician! You will leave with a new perspective on tablets, video games, 3D, virtual reality, simulators, apprenticeships, credentialing, college degrees, partnerships and the schools that will be the winners and losers.
With the increased productivity demands that manufacturers face today, it is necessary to consider all aspects of the manufacturing process for improvements. In this presentation we will discuss cutting tool geometry, coatings and configurations pertaining to hole-making and how they contribute to increased productivity.
Perfekta Aerospace takes an unconventional approach to new projects, and is quick to try new methods and new materials. Learn how the company’s collaborative approach to problem solving and “early adopter” attitude toward new technology has driven growth and expansion for this progressive organization.
Complex and interrelated decisions complicate translating the art captured in a model or drawing into a physical product. By examining the entire production chain from art to part, manufacturers can leverage opportunities to design cost out and develop manufacturing processes incorporating the right machine, the right tooling and the right process, resulting in the most productive system, reducing overall manufacturing costs and increasing available capacity.
This seminar will take you through the critical areas of the aerospace world, including difficult-to-machine materials and high temp alloys. Through examples, you will learn what to look for and how to counter the effects of material changing during machining.
Fanuc engineers will introduce and review new 5-axis control functionality and applications. We explore which control options are required to maximize your machines capabilities.
Learn how the Rolls Royce Advanced Turbine Center development team has reinvented themselves after the cancellation of the F136 JSF fighter engine program. The Rolls Royce team blazed new trails with the F136 engine program with new advances in technology and science and is now incorporating this technology into new engine programs.
Competition mandates utilizing every possible advantage to streamline the manufacturing process and predict problems before they happen. Easy to use software will allow for quick machine setup and thus lead to improvements in lean manufacturing. Also, demystify Statistical Process Control (SPC) and use these tools to predict and eliminate scrap. Let Hexagon Metrology show how machine tool probes can provide these advantages.
Learn how Siemens PLM integrates the complete manufacturing process within one system. From part design, manufacturing, metrology and control integration. We will also explore the integration of the NX CAM system and the Sinumerik 840 machine control.
Precision hole-making has always been a feature most feared by process engineers due to their tight tolerances and difficulty in maintaining SPC requirements with unskilled machinists. Learn about the practical uses and new technology behind digital boring heads, and how digital technology can be used on adjustable tools.
This seminar is a round-up of innovative solutions, and the inspiration for this annual event. Various experts will present new methods and processes with an emphasis on aerospace component manufacturing. Learn about new tooling technology and New DMG / MORI SEIKI products for the Aerospace industry.
A single machine for blanking, hobbing, shaping, broaching, grinding and measuring. Produce spur, helical, bevel, spiral bevel, herringbone and worm gears. Learn how new strategies in software and tooling enables gear production on standard 5-axis or turn-mill machines.
The presenter will share examples of automated operating systems for DMG and MORI SEIKI machines. Increase profits with higher productivity on new or existing equipment with simple and flexible automation.
As the need for flexible manufacturing increases and batch sizes decrease, manufactures need alternative solutions to traditional hobbing machines for gear production. New machine tool and cutting tool technology allows the production of spur and helical gears in multitask machines and machining centers. Sandvik Coromant will present the InvoMilling process and how manufactures can use it to be more competitive.
Lean manufacturing typically gets the spotlight as a path to profit, but before you can have a lean operation, you need to get your process under control. Learn how the Productive Process Pyramid, a four-step approach to increase process capability, can yield substantial improvements in labor, scrap, inspection and overall equipment effectiveness, while moving a big step closer to your lean manufacturing goal.
Focus on the Universal Gear Machine’s capabilities to mill bevel, spiral bevel, herringbone, and worm gears… and hybrid generation processes which combine the best of generation, milling, and grinding solutions.
Focus on the Universal Gear Machine’s grinding solutions. Included are solutions for vitrified bond and electroplated wheels, used for roughing, surface hardening and finishing.
Friday, May 10 is a special day for students. DMG / MORI SEIKI University has partnered with select local schools to promote careers in manufacturing. The auditorium will be used by these 200 special guests on Friday, with tours following the presentation. Manufacturers are welcome to visit the showroom and join us for lunch during Student Day!
