DMG MORI Manufacturing USA Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary

The DMG MORI Manufacturing USA, Inc. team

On October 7th, 2022, DMG MORI Manufacturing USA Inc. (DMM) celebrated the 10-year anniversary since its grand opening in Davis, CA. This location is home to some of the latest automation technology, as well as horizontal machining center (HMC) innovations. Since 2012, over 3,100 machines-including the NHX series, the ALX series and the CMX V series-have been manufactured here and sent to customers throughout North and South America.

The NHX series, a high precision and high-speed HMC, is capable of efficient, continuous machining for various industries, including automotive, aerospace, machinery and others. The latest models in the series are equipped with thick rigid beds that provide increased stability and come with powerful spindles ranging from 8,000 RPM to 30,000 RPM.

The CMX V series, a vertical machining center (VMC) engineered for enhanced milling performance, is also manufactured at DMM. These models are designed to provide reliable and versatile operation in a variety of industries.

While technological growth at the factory has been significant, there have also been developments in building the skillset of the local workforce. In fact, the number of expatriates working at DMM decreased by 70% from 2012 to 2022. Anthony Serra, Executive Vice President of DMM, stated, "When the factory opened in 2012, many employees were expatriates from Japan with specific skillsets. However, we have since expanded and trained the workforce here at DMM. We now have a large number of local skilled employees from our own community."

In addition, DMM has become one of the most automated facilities in America that manufactures machine tools and has been instrumental in educating USA customers about the benefits of investing in automation. These have been instrumental in helping customers save time and become more competitive. Customers can experience the Linear Pallet Pool systems (LPP) and Round Pallet system (RPS), which are both produced and manufactured in Davis, CA. John McDonald, Executive Vice President of DMM, stated that, "Automation has been a key element of digital production at the Davis factory. The LPP system can be equipped with multilevel pallet racks to accommodate a higher level of automation. A substantial number of customers are astonished by the level of convenience this technology can provide while they are engaging in other tasks."

Though advanced technology has been a major factor in the evolution of the factory, President Marlow Knabach attributes much of its success to employees who have contributed their knowledge and hard work to further advance DMM. He stated, "It is only with the effort of our employees at DMM that we have made pivotal strides to become an industry leader with a strong presence in the local communities."

It is important for DMM to contribute to organizations and initiatives in the local community. To cultivate and encourage science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, DMM has hosted various events for local organizations, such as Boy Scouts, Citrus Circuits Robot Team, Explorit Science Center and several other organizations.

The 10-year anniversary was attended by several important figures in the community, such as Mayor Lucas Frerichs, Councilmember Gloria Partida, Councilmember Dan Carson, City Manager Mike Webb, Senior Planner Eric Lee, Police Chief Darren Pytel, Director of Community Engagement Jenny Ten and Communication Manager Barbara Archer. Mayor Frierichs, the keynote speaker of the ceremony, acknowledged the strong presence that DMG MORI holds in the city and spoke about how proud he was to have been present at the grand opening back in 2012.

DMM has also made it a top priority to deliver sustainability in efforts to contribute to a healthier environment. This includes approaching 100% carbon neutral production and the installation of a 2,000-kW solar panel system to reduce energy consumption.

As the factory continues to expand, DMM looks forward to continuous success and advancement in technology as well as the community.
