In a bid to improve efficiency, automotive manufacturers are looking at increasingly lightweight composites to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. For car, truck and bus production lines, these new materials present significant machining and fixturing challenges. But we are up to the task.

Complete solutions for automotive engineering

Our high-precision machining solutions are designed to meet the increasingly specialist needs of car manufacturers.

New lightweight alloys and composites create unique machining challenges. But with our advanced machining and turning solutions, you can combine maximum precision with a gentle touch. Ensuring exceptional quality in your automotive components, every time – and customer satisfaction guaranteed.

Materials removal for bus manufacturing

Electric, bio-diesel or traditional – we have materials removal solutions for every type of bus.

Whether you are utilizing new composite materials or traditional alloys for your bus production line, our horizontal boring mills and vertical turning centres give you a precision cut and quality finish. Every machining center can be customized to your application, ensuring it precisely meets your needs – however simple or complex. Large bus components are also no problem for our heavy-duty machines.

Advanced truck manufacturing lines

Heavy-duty truck production lines can still be super-efficient, with integrated robotics and automation.

Whether you are machining powertrain, engine or transmission components, our aim is always to help you achieve optimum quality in the minimum cycle time. With that in mind, all of our adaptable mills feature easy, automated tool change and optional integrated loading/unloading.

Large truck parts are no problem for our advanced machining cells. Cincinnati has been involved in automotive manufacturing since the very beginning and has more than 135 years' experience. Giddings & Lewis boasts more than 160 years of material removal experience. Together with our other legacy brands – Dufieux, Forest-Liné, and Liné Machines – they bring an unrivalled depth and breadth of experience.

We are driven by an ambition to see our customers succeed – and we’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that happens.
