CIMT begins today in Beijing – Asia’s most important industry trade fair. The ideal time and place to make expansion plans in this largest market for Machine tools to announce: DMG Mori is planning to start construction on a 35,000 m2, highly automated and fully digitized production plant for 5-axis milling machines in Pinghu near Shanghai this year.
“We are building the world’s most modern production plant in Pinghu for 75 million euros and are showing the full potential of our holistic technology solutions: flexible automation, continuous digitization, state-of-the-art flow assembly with AGVs for 5-axis milling machines,” says Christian Thönes, CEO of DMG Mori Aktiengesellschaft.
“Made in China – for China”: With this goal and a high level of added value, DMG MORI produces 5-axis milling machines of the DMU series. The production is geared towards an annual capacity of over 2200 machines. The new location covers a total area of 70,000 m2. The grand opening of DMG Mori Pinghu Manufacturing Solutions is planned for the end of 2022. Pinghu is located in the middle of the Yangtze Delta – one of the most dynamic economic zones in China – and has developed rapidly in terms of economy and technology due to its geographical advantages.
DMG Mori can limit the decline in the crisis year
In September 2020 DMG Mori put the new monoBLOCK Excellence Factory in Pfronten into operation with 36 AGV transport systems (“Automated Guided Vehicles”). The fully digitized value chain based on the “No Code” platform TULIP, which was developed and fully digitized by the company’s own employees, is now also to be used in China.
The high demand for machine tools in China is currently handled by over 500 employees. In addition to the technology center in Shanghai and the production plant in Tianjin, there are eight sales and service companies (Beijing, Shenyang, Chongqing, Xi’an, Shanghai, Ningbo, Suzhou, Shenzhen). The investment of around 75 million euros underscores DMG MORI’s growth plans in China. (fr)
