Some History of DMG Mori Product Lines and Technology Through Today

DMG Mori is a global company with headquarters in Japan and operation bases in Japan, Germany, Italy, China, Poland and Russia. In total, they have over 12,000 employees in over 44 countries, with the majority of the employees located in Japan and Germany. They have sales offices throughout Europe, Africa, South America and 25 locations in the United States. The United States sales makes up just 16% of revenue according to a 2016 corporate report.

Mori Seiki has a history going back to 1948 where they started in the manufacturing of business textiles. In 1983 Mori Seiki established a USA branch and was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and Osaka Securities Exchange. Around this time, they began to manufacture both vertical machining centers (MV-40) and horizontal machining centers (MV-40). By 2003 were deeply involved in the development of machine tools technology such as the DCG (driven at the center of gravity), DDM (direct drive motor and BMT (built-in motor turret). Gildemeister established Mori Seiki Sales and Service and acquired other various businesses before it was absorbed along with Mori Seiki beginning in 2009. In 2013 the company names all unified under the name DMG Mori. Management consolidated in 2014 with completed business integration by 2016.

Mori Seiki manufactured Fanuc control lathes and turning centers under the name “Mori Seiki” throughout the 1990’s until 2013. Numerous Mori Seiki engine lathes, twin turret CNC lathes, turning centers, twin spindle with live tooling lathes and milling centers are still in hot demand. You will sometime see the name DMG Mori Seiki on equipment which encompasses both name brands together. All Mori Seiki CNC machines are supported by the current DMG Mori company. Contact your DMG Mori representative or call their hotline at 1-800-DMG-MORI (800-364-6674) if you have any questions about support or upgrade on a Mori Seiki CNC machine.

An Easy Way to Narrow Your Search for the Best Series of DMG Mori CNC Machine

DMG Mori’s Machine Selector allows you to select the technology (milling, turning, grinding, advanced technology), the segment (vertical, horizontal or 5-axis) and control system. It then allows you to select key features in a range. For example, if you select milling and vertical milling, you can not only see the range, but drag a cursor on the range for each of the following:

Clearance Max. X-axis travel (in)  – 15” to 61”
Clearance Max Y-axis travel (in) – 10” to 30”
Clearance Max Z-axis travel (in) – 11” to 26”
Max Table Load, Table Dimensions in Width and Length & more.

When you start, you’ll see at the bottom right the total number of machines that match your criteria. As you narrow the range, fewer machines will be available. Click “Show Machines” and the site will take you to specific new machines that are a good fit. Since many of the machines have been produced for more than a year, you can then look for that particular machine series as a used CNC machine. Of course, if you’re looking for series names older than 2013, they may not be listed.
