Hanover, Germany – One of the leading diversified machine tool makers in the world, DMG introduced nine new machines and the development of 13 technologies at the EMO 2005 trade show that was held in Hanover Sept. 14 through 21.
Rüdiger Kapitza, the chief executive of DMG, said at a press conference that the new products were the fruits of the investments the company has made over the past five years. Kapitza said DMG spent nearly $305 million (250 EUR) on a variety of technologies in that period.
DMG displayed its new machines and technologies at a huge stand with 60 exhibits at the EMO trade show.
One of the highlights of the company’s exhibit was the new CTV 400 vertical turning center. The center is designed for small- to medium-sized parts up to about 16 inches (400 mm) in diameter. It has dual-track loading and unloading, easy access to the work area, and what the company says is a wear-free linear drive in the X-axis with a 1-g acceleration rate.
