DMG Mori is a worldwide leading manufacturer of machine tools with a turnover of more than €2.6 billion. A total of 12,000 employees, suppliers and strong, reliable partners offer strong evidence of its success. Efaflex has supplied high-speed doors for efficient plant logistics to the Seebach site in Thuringia. “We have only been installing Efaflex doors for four years now,” reports Jörg Berz, head of plant technology at DMG Mori in Seebach. “The planners focused most attention on the very fast opening and closing speed of the EFASST and EFA-STT high-speed doors. Efaflex doors are the best there is. We have tested products from various manufacturers. Since we have had the fast doors from Efaflex, there is hardly any damage caused by forklift trucks.”

Maintenance and repair costs are also extremely low, which is why all older doors in the factory are gradually being replaced by those from the specialist for high-speed industrial doors. “The appearance of the doors is also very impressive,” says Berz. At DMG Mori in Seebach, the colour of the exterior doors has been adapted to the company’s corporate identity in the RAL colour iron grey. In addition to the standard aluminium-coloured coating, the manufacturer also paints the door’s laths and steel parts in almost any colour from the RAL system on request. As a result, the EFA-SST can be perfectly adapted to any façade to suit the architecture and customer specifications.

Both door types, the EFA-SST and the EFA-STT, can handle up to 250,000 load cycles per year: a must for the busy main logistics area at DMG Mori in Seebach. The doors perform the function of access control in other areas of the plant, such as the warehouse. They are opened here using a card reader. “This is very important for us,” explains Berz. “As a well-known shipper, we are
certified as part of the secure supply chain, for example for air freight, and must therefore meet high security standards. This means that only certain employees who have been checked for
reliability by the authorities may enter these areas.”
