This target is the same as the target set in the medium-term management plan “2020 Vision,” and if realized, it will be achieved two years ahead of schedule.
New initiatives were also announced. To promote the 5-axis control machining center in the Japanese market, DMG Mori will loan the 5-axis MC “DMU 50 3rd Generation” to 50 companies nationwide for one year. In addition, lecturers will be sent on a regular basis. “The share of 5-axis machines in the MC market is about 50% in Europe, but only about 15% in Japan. We first want to expand the use of 5-axis machines and make them popular,” says Masahiko Mori, President of DMG Mori.
