DMG MORI INTRODUCES NEW METHOD FOR MACHINE AND SOFTWARE ACQUISITION
Global machine tool manufacturer DMG Mori has extended its end-to-end digital solutions by introducing a new way for existing and prospective users to acquire its machine tools, native APPs, other software and value-added services. The new PAYZR business model, powered by Industry 4.0 platform ADAMOS, offers a digital point of sale at www.dmgmoristore.com from where customers can configure and order Equipment-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service.
PAYZR (PAY with Zero Risk) is a hybrid system based on pay-per-use rather than ownership. It allows manufacturers to acquire a new machine tool by paying a monthly subscription plus a fee per spindle hour used. The cost of both depends on the machine selected, its specification and the duration of the contract. No minimum number of spindle hours is specified. Included is a package that comprises supply, commissioning, training, service and maintenance, as well as insurance covering a machine crash and loss of earnings while the machine is out of action.
Initially, users are being offered four products: the M1 3-axis machining centre in the Equipment-as-a-Service category and three cloud-based Software-as-a-Service solutions, ISTOS for planning and control, TULIP – a no-code platform for creating customised APPs, and WERKBLiQ for maintenance and service management.
DMG Mori says that the centralised PAYZR option for machine tool and software acquisition and management offers customers financial flexibility, without any down payment or capital expenditure, as well as planning certainty through price and cost transparency. It also gives customers the opportunity always to utilise the latest technology and provides easy access to other partner applications in the ADAMOS ecosystem. More and more machines and software will be added to the portal in the coming months and years.
