DMG MORI Manufacturing Days Event Draws High Number and High-Caliber Attendees



Davis, Calif. – DMG MORI, a leading manufacturer of machine tools, announces record attendance at its inaugural Manufacturing Days event, the Open House of the Davis factory. The four-day, November 12-15, event brought more than 1,300 visitors through the company’s U.S. manufacturing facility and the adjacent Digital Technology Laboratory (DTL) in Davis, Calif. The Open House event provided attendees with a look into the 200,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, as well as 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.”

Visitors in the full exhibition area in the DMG MORI Manufacturing Davis facility.

Highlights of the event included:

  • Personal tours of DMG MORI Manufacturing—seeing current production of horizontal and vertical machining centers for North America
  • Dr. Masahiko Mori, President, giving an exciting outlook on the future of manufacturing as well as the ongoing collaborations from two companies becoming one
  • Dr. Greg Hyatt, Chief Technology Officer, introducing a paradigm shift in additive manufacturing; this new approach combines laser metal deposition with five-axis CNC milling
  • Carl Bass, President & CEO of Autodesk, speaking on innovation, and specifically what makes a company truly innovative and what areas of manufacturing can really change the way things are made in this age of access, information and experience
  • Additional seminars on MTConnect, sustainability and a panel of peers discussing successes and failures on implementing new technology

The Open House also marks the North American introduction of CELOS. CELOS – from the idea to the finished product. CELOS is a new interface that simplifies and accelerates production processes through integrated management, documentation and visualization of job, process and machine data. It is compatible with PPS- and ERP-systems and also can be linked to CAD/CAM software.

Visitors check out the supersized CELOS model and new design of a DMG MORI NLX machine.

“We’d like to thank everyone who attended Manufacturing Days Davis this year and we look forward to this being a reoccurring event,” says Adam Hansel, CTO of Digital Technology Laboratory (DTL). “We are proud of the facility and the work being done here and hope all attendees left with a true understanding that our machines are of the highest quality.”
