I'm sure the DMGs were China built?
I never realised the Mk2 were a changed factory.
It's a shame because in looking at the machine iron, it looks very good.
I remember hearing big PLC issues when it was first introduced - very poor integration between the machine and the Siemens
We were told Japanese or German builds, no China.
Our issues were rotary unions failing destroying spindles, spindles just going bad on their own, scales getting clogged with chips since the are not protected well, and some control issues which is a treat to deal with since DMG Mori is incapable and has to call Siemens. 6 grand blank check for them to come out and tell us we had to flip a reset switch somewhere but they couldn't tell the tech that was there for two days to try it. No explanation to why it happened or how we can prevent it in the future.
