Seebach – Tradition and Innovation made in Thuringia


Seebach in Thuringia is directly linked to the German industrial history. In 1862, the brothers Thiel founded a factory for metal goods. First, the production included metal fitting for pipes and small metal goods. Afterwards, the company specialized their core business to the production of clocks. In 1901 they started with the development and production of special machines and tools for manufacturing clocks. The production program included small lathes, milling machines, multiple-spindle heads, eccentric presses and other machine tools. Almost 70 years later, the construction work of the production plant in Seebach began. Already after one year, the production started with the manufacturing of universal milling machines and drilling machines as well as machine tools. 

In 1990, the cooperation with MAHO GmbH in Pfronten began, which ultimately led to the merger to form DMG - Deckel Maho Gildemeister.  

Today, DMG MORI in Seebach is one of the most important employers in the region and has a site of around 155,000 m² with around 700 employees. The core competence in Seebach is 5-axis milling: DMG MORI's most successful 5-axis milling machine in the world, the DMU 50, is developed and produced in Seebach. The total assembly capacity at the site is 2,000 machines per year. 

5-axis expertise and maximum precision 

In Seebach, too, our focus is on offering our customers the best and most precise milling machines in the world. Accordingly, we are in constant contact with our customers to understand their requirements and provide them with customized solutions.  

With our many years of experience on site and our highly qualified employees, DMG MORI in Seebach stands for the development and production of high-precision 5-axis milling machines. In 2023, we also put a new production line, the so-called FlowLine, into operation for this purpose. The DMU 50 3rd Generation and the DMU 40, among others, are built on 30 automated guided vehicles (AGV) - up to 40% faster than before. 

At the same time, the new training center in Seebach was opened. On an area of around 1,000 m², DMG MORI offers creative space for learning numerous job profiles and future-oriented topics such as automation, digitalization and additive manufacturing.
