Detroit Diesel

At Detroit Diesel, MDSI retrofitted two Motch 135 two–axis vertical turning lathes with OpenCNC in just eight days. The two lathes had obsolete controls—and finding spare parts to keep the old controls running was a constant problem. Now both machines are in full production, thanks to OpenCNC.

Because of the success of the software on the two retrofits, Detroit Diesel recently specified–and took delivery of—several new machines with OpenCNC.

Detroit Diesel Corporation designs, manufactures, sells and services heavy–duty diesel and alternative fuel engines, automotive diesel engines, and engine related products. The Company offers a complete line of diesel engines from ten to 10,000 horsepower for the on-highway truck; construction, mining and industrial; automotive; coach and bus; marine; power generation; and military markets.
