A DMG Mori NLX is placed in position at CloudNC facility in ChelmsfordCloudNC
, an autonomous manufacturer, is continuing to expand and enhance the capacity of its CNC facility in Chelmsford with new machines supplied by its machine tool partner DMG Mori
New machines have been added to provide the additional capacity needed for the growing number of companies putting their trust in CloudNC to produce their CNC parts efficiently, effectively, and economically. Additional automation is also being added to ensure the facility continues its journey towards autonomy.
Like the machines, the partnership that CloudNC enjoys with DMG Mori is tried and tested. For years the latter has been the equipment provider of choice as CloudNC continues its journey towards the autonomous factories where production management and machine programming are entirely computer managed.
Theo Saville, CloudNC co-founder and CEO, said: “We are pursuing our vision of an autonomous CNC facility that can be expanded and copied to create an autonomous manufacturing ecosystem.
“To do this we need the very best equipment delivered and installed by a partner that understands our vision and our passion to provide the best quality, efficiency and performance. We have that in DMG Mori and this is testament to our commitment to expand to meet growing demand using its market leading machines”.
As well as the two new machines, CloudNC has added automation options and is further enhancing its facility with six-figure investments in temperature and air quality control as well as a power upgrade to five times the current power capacity at the site. that will support even more machines before the end of 2021.
The DMU95 five-axis machining centre and a NLX multi-axis turning centre model machines were selected for the 950mm enhanced envelope size of the DMU95 and the versatility of the NLX series.
Steve Finn, DMG Mori UK managing director, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the amazing work that CloudNC is doing and its vision for the CNC facility of the future. As its machine partner we share the passion for technology and for the advancement of the manufacturing sector through automation and autonomy.
“We look forward to continuing to help build what is shaping up to be the most advanced CNC factory anywhere.”
