Live and in presence, DMG MORI welcomes its visitors to the traditional in-house exhibition in Pfronten from May 9 to 21, 2022. To protect its health, DMG MORI has extended the exhibition period in order to reduce the daily number of visitors and to have more time for personal exchange. In the new, larger showroom, future-oriented and flexible automation solutions – 14 are on display – will be the central theme. In addition to proven products such as the automated guided vehicles (AGV), DMG MORI will present no less than four innovations: the Robo2Go MAX, the MATRIS light, the PH Cell 2000 and the PH 50. Even after the in-house exhibition, automation solutions such as these can be viewed in the permanently equipped showroom as well as at other locations. In the area of digitization, the focus will be on the Cell Controller LPS4, the Digital Twin, TOOLING CAM & Store. Two world premieres – the NTX 500 and the DMU/DMC 85 H monoBLOCK – complete the in-house exhibition, which will feature a total of 26 machines. A fixed component of the program is a large number of presentations that will be broadcast live and online from the DMG MORI Broadcast Studio.
“The PRE-EMO Show in September 2021 has once again confirmed to us how valuable personal encounters with our customers are,” says Cornelius Nöß, Managing Director of DECKEL MAHO Pfronten, looking ahead to the upcoming in-house exhibition. After a break last year, the traditional event year will now take place again in presence. He said that the reduced number of visitors during the PRE-EMO show had ensured high-quality discussions. “For this reason, we are stretching the 2022 in-house exhibition over two weeks for the first time, which will also protect the health of everyone involved.”
The 2022 in-house exhibition will once again be synonymous with cutting-edge CNC technology and groundbreaking trends in machine tool manufacturing – above all, innovative and holistic automation solutions. They remain an indispensable means for future-oriented users to work productively and competitively. As a pioneer in this field, DMG MORI supplies 57 automation solutions completely from a single source. At the Pfronten event, 14 of these can be seen, including the latest developments.
