DMS supplies machines to a wide variety of manufacturing sectors including aerospace, automotive, marine, mold and pattern, medical, formed plastics, composites, and wood working.

The relationship between DMS and Fagor Automation was established more than 15 years ago, and it continues to flourish.
During this meeting, the executives discussed their growth plans for 2013, the need to strengthen international commercial relations outside the USA between Fagor Automation and DMS, and their plans to reinforce and expand the technological cooperation between the two companies.
The representatives of Fagor Automation were extremely gratified to hear directly from Mr. Bollar and Mr. Hilligrass that Fagor has contributed considerably to the evolution and success of their CNC machines, providing them with very accurate and repetitive movement control, as well as considerable cost savings per unit.
The close technical cooperation between the DMS and Fagor Automation engineers, combined with Fagor’s advanced linear and rotary feedback system’s, has given Diversified Machine Systems a competitive edge in the market.
