Chicago-area center doubles work space, adds classrooms and lab

Mori Seiki’s new corporate headquarters and Technical Center near Chicago will be the site of open house in early November.

The newly built, 102,000-sq.ft center in Hoffman Estates, IL, doubles the size of Mori Seiki’s former Chicago headquarters, and brings it together with Mori Seiki University. “Our goal is to be a resource that brings a difference to the machine-tool end user,” stated Mori Seiki U.S.A. President Thomas R. Dillon. “Mori Seiki’s commitment to this goal can be seen by our emphasis on education, research and development in the design of the new headquarters’ facility.”

In addition to its on-line learning programs, the University has three classrooms and a state-of-the-art learning lab for traditional and hands-on machine instruction.

Two 25-ton cranes will facilitate the positioning and operation of Mori Seiki’s expansive product line of machine tools in the new facility’s 14,000-square-foot showroom.

The three-day event, November 3-5, will include the introduction the NVL1350T and NV7000DCG machines, and the regional debut of the NT1000 and NMV3000DCG. More than 25 machines and cutting demonstrations, new technologies in development, and technical presentations by Mori Seiki engineers and guest speakers are scheduled, also.

The NVL1350T vertical lathe offers a maximum turning diameter of 62.9 in. The NVL1350T offers large-diameter machining with a compact footprint of only 169-in. wide.

The NV7000DCG is the largest of Mori Seiki’s high-precision vertical machining centers. Building on the success of the NV5000 and NV6000 machines, the NV7000DCG achieves the highest machining accuracy in its class with Mori Seiki’s Original DCG (Driven at the Center of Gravity) technology to eliminate vibration.
