DMG Mori celebrates suppport for AFRCDMG Mori has been a Tier One member of the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) since 2015. Located in Inchinnan, it is a collaborative venture between the University of Strathclyde, Scottish Enterprise, the UK Government and leading multi-national engineering firms.

The centre’s objectives are to ‘work proactively to disseminate skills and technology that will offer a different perspective to manufacturing methods by the use of forming techniques’.

As part of its Tier One membership, DMG Mori ( has supplied four machines to the AFRC — a CTX beta 2000 TC five-axis turn/mill, an NLX 2500SY 700, an HSC 75 linear five-axis machining centre and a DMU 125 FD duoBLOCK five-axis mill/turn.

With this range of machines, the centre can manufacture and carry out R&D activity for complex components, tools, dies and moulds, with the aim of reducing costs and lead times and improving performance.

DMG Mori is a strong supporter of Scottish industry, and its technology is in use at companies such as Fife Fabrications, CA Models, Vert Rotors, Castle Precision and Hunting Energy Services.

The reliability and precision of its machines helps these companies to make complex high-value parts economically.

Steve Finn, managing director of DMG Mori UK, said: “We are committed to the development of high-value manufacturing in the UK.

"By supporting the AFRC, we can bring our expertise to bear within the advanced manufacturing industry, throwing a new light on the radical techniques that are possible.

"Companies using our machinery in Scotland manufacture parts ranging from heavy-duty threaded pipes for oil and
gas to high-precision rotors where 5µm accuracy is essential.

"Achieving positive outcomes for this range of applications relies on the know-how available from DMG Mori and our commitment to excellence in machine design, manufacture and service.”
