DMG MORI CO., LTD. (hereinafter called DMG MORI) developed “IoTconnector,” a communication device compatible with various open protocols used for networking of machine tools, and will offer it as a standard feature of its machine tools*1to be shipped from November 2020 onwards.
With the advancement of machine tool technology, we are now able to provide customers with advanced cutting solutions such as 5-axis machining and mill-turn operation, and help them achieve process integration for greater production efficiency. In recent years, many shop owners find it necessary to accumulate and analyze data using sensing and IoT technologies to make their production processes even more sophisticated, and accelerate their efforts towards digitization. In response to such a trend, DMG MORI will offer IoTconnector as standard as a solution for digital manufacturing.
IoTconnector is a device featuring PC-like functionality. Embedded in the electrical cabinet of a machine tool, it allows for network connections via open protocols. Due to good compatibility with various open protocols commonly used for machine tools, IoTconnector enables the connection of DMG MORI machines to the IoT system consisting of devices and equipment from different manufacturers via network, thereby facilitating shop digitization.
