DMG MORI founds for the digital production


With the founding of the start-up Istos, DMG MORI is expanding its digitization expertise. The new Düsseldorf-based company is developing digital production projects for DMG MORI and interested partners. The aim is to support DMG MORI’s customers and companies outside the machine too industry in handling the digital transformation by way of fully connected production processes. For DMG MORI customers ISTOS is the connecting link from an open network across all machines to an integrated digital factory.

Istos stands for “Innovative Software Technologies for Open Solutions” and will sustainably shape digitization in the field of machining. The basis is provided by  Elos– the APP-based control and operations software from DMG MORI. “With ISTOS we have successfully managed to attract and gain a complete team of 15 experienced IoT experts,“ says Christian Thönes, Chairman of the Executive Board of DMG MORI Aktiengesellshaft, “by ISTOS we are speeding up our digital innovation process. I am convinced that ISTOS will support us and our
customers with innovative solutions for digitization.” With a current share of 85%, DMG MORI is purposefully creating an open structure for further partners or strategic investment and is therefore creating room
for digital alliances – even across sectors.

ISTOS will develop individual customer solutions across the group and together with DMG MORI Software Solutions GmbH will realize the digital production world.
