At this year’s formnext DMG MORI will be demonstrating holistic expertise in additive manufacturing and will present the LASERTEC 125 3D hybrid as a world premiere in laser deposition welding.
As the leading global exhibition for additive manufacturing, the formnext in Frankfurt am Main is the ideal platform for DMG MORI to present a cross section of its extensive portfolio. The machine tool manufacturer will be demonstrating its many years of experience and competence in ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING from November 19 to November 22, 2019 at the formnext. The highlight of this year’s exhibition appearance is the world premiere of the LASERTEC 125 3D hybrid, a new machine size in powder nozzle technology. DMG MORI will use the LASERTEC 30 SLM 2nd Generation and the LASERTEC 12 SLM to present the powder bed process. A DMU 50 3rd Generation, that will also be on display at the formnext, supplements the additive process chain to include CNC machining. DMG MORI will also be providing insights into its customer portal my DMG MORI and the DMG MORI Economic Stimulus program at expert counters.
World premieres: LASERTEC 125 3D hybrid
Laser deposition welding of large parts
With the LASERTEC 125 3D hybrid DMG MORI has expanded its laser deposition welding portfolio to include a model for the maintenance, repair and production of significantly larger parts. Based on the sturdy monoBLOCK series it is designed for parts measuring up to ø 1,250 x 745 mm and a workpiece weight of up to 2,000 kg. The rigid machine construction and high dynamics of the LASERTEC 125 3D hybrid enable the accurate, reliable and at the same time cost-effective complete machining of metallic 3D parts. Customers can expect high build rates and a repeat accuracy normally associated with CNC machines. The new AM Assistant is part of the innovative software and hardware of the LASERTEC 125 3D hybrid. The hardware includes an integrated thermal imaging camera for continuous thermal monitoring of the entire work area. The AM Assistant also includes the AM Evaluator software, an intelligent downstream evaluation software for 3D process data.
The highlight of this year’s formnext is the world premiere of the LASERTEC 125 3D hybrid for workpiece weights of up to 2.000 kg.
Maximum precision in the powder bed
The DMG MORI portfolio in powder bed technology includes the LASERTEC 30 SLM 2nd Generation with its large build chamber of 300 x 300 x 300 mm and the LASERTEC 12 SLM, which sets new standards in precision thanks to its focal diameter of just 35 µm. Measuring 125 x 125 x 200 mm it has the biggest build chamber in its class. One thing that all LASERTEC SLM machines have in common is the powder change using the rePLUG powder module. On the one hand, the closed powder circuit ensures a high level of work safety and, on the other, the powder can be easily changed within two hours, thanks to the rePLUG powder module – the fastest option on the market.
The powder bed machines in the LASERTEC SLM series are designed for the productive manufacturing of complex workpieces.
Two technological processes with ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING and machining from a single source
The LASERTEC 3D hybrid series is designed for the additive manufacture of complex prototypes and small series parts as well as for the repair and coating of components. It enables both additive manufacturing and CNC milling on one machine – for 3D components in finished part quality. The portfolio still includes the LASERTEC 65 3D, which is geared solely towards laser deposition welding as a complement to existing machining centers on the shop floor. The LASERTEC SLM series expands the portfolio to include the powder bed method using selective laser melting (SLM). Thanks to the combination of additive manufacturing technologies with conventional CNC machines, like the DMU 50 3rd Generation that will be on show at the formnext, DMG MORI has realized individual needs-based process chains.
DMQP: Cost-effective powder circuit with seal of quality
DMG MORI has underlined the holistic process thinking by also extending the range of DMG MORI Qualified Products to peripheral and accessory components for additive manufacturing. On the one hand, the main focus is on open powder selection, and having a qualified and integrated powder circuit on the other. Powder return and recycling with selected DMQP partners provides an economical way of processing expensive powder materials. A highly competent DMQP partner has been acquired in this area in the form of Hanau-based Heraeus, which ensures that a comprehensive powder portfolio which fulfils the strict quality standards is available to customers. DMG MORI has also conclusively validated these standards on a LASERTEC SLM powder bed machine. The wide range of materials in the DMG MORI web shop ranges from tool steel and stainless steel to aluminium and cobalt chromium to Inconel and titanium, meaning that almost any requirement in the target industries can be covered – worldwide and within just a few working days. All powder is said to be marked with a DMQP seal of quality and ready to use, since it is provided with the relevant parameters.
The DMQP program concentrates on open powder selection as well as on a qualified and holistic powder cycle.
my DMG MORI:
Unique customer portal for more transparency, quality and speed in all service processes
Maximum customer benefit is also the focus of the new digital customer portal my DMG MORI. DMG MORI brings together here the expectations of its future-oriented initiatives “Integrated Digitization”, “First Quality” and “Customer First”. The result is a unique online portal for interactive cooperation between DMG MORI and its customers. Among other things service requests can in future be started virtually at the press of a button via my DMG MORI. Whereby the interactive request form prevents any misunderstandings. Specific service requests and optionally attached photos or videos immediately reach the right DMG MORI service expert. While the “Tracking & Tracing” function at the same time ensures transparency for all service processes and procedures. Even orders for spare parts can be tracked down to the exact minute.
DMG MORI Economic Stimulus Program:
Strong partner for every economic situation
After years of growth, many DMG MORI customers now face uncertain economic times. The machine tool manufacturer is taking advantage of its global presence and unique and wide range of services and products to position itself as a reliable partner especially in this situation. Based on a comprehensive five-point Economic Stimulus Program, DMG MORI is able to provide its customers on the economic level with long-term support in the area of further training as well as service and machine technology. All measures perfectly complement one another and are all from a single source. The program, which is available in Europe, includes a machine buyback option for more cash flow, risk-free financing models from DMG MORI Finance, training courses in which the DMG MORI Academy provides more know-how for users as well as the DMG MORI Full-Service package for carefree production and machine overhaul by DMG MORI Used Machines as an alternative to a new purchase.
