At a grand opening held last month, DMG Mori unveiled extensive improvements to its Famot machining centre and CNC lathe factory in Pleszew, Poland, one of the largest production facilities in the group with around 700 staff. A total of €60m has been invested, partly to extend the factory to 50,000 sq m, including 14,000 sq m of production area and 7000 sq m devoted to assembly, which together receive more than 140,000 parts a day from store. In the production hall alone, 50 machine tools, mainly from DMG Mori, operate around the clock. New also are a castings store, logistics hall and inductive hardening facility.
The remainder of the investment went on digitising the entire process chain, from receipt of order, through production planning and monitoring, machine data acquisition, supply chain management and machine assembly, to shipping. It is the first DMG Mori plant to operate digitally over a manufacturing service bus, end-to-end, on all added-value levels.
