In the field of additive manufacturing, the machine tool builder already has experience with laser deposit welding processes through Sauer GmbH.
With this 50.1 percent stake in Realizer, the company’s SLM 3D printing systems will be developed and assembled both at its Borchen location and at DMG Mori’s facility in Bielefeld, both in Germany.
The machine tool maker also announced the launch of a new startup, Istos. Based in Dusseldorf, the startup will support its digital expansion and is aimed to help customers transform their processes into digitised workflows. The startup will be provided with Celos, an app-based control and operations software developed by DMG Mori.
The machine tool maker owns 85 percent of Istos, and initial results of the new startup will be presented at metalworking expo EMO Hannover, which is taking place from 18 to 23 September 2017.
