Fives Cinetic strengthens its position as a key supplier to the Aeronautics market
In order to increase its production capacity and respond to growing demand from the aeronautics market, Figeac Aero, a well-known player in the machining of aeronautical parts, has renewed its confidence in Fives Cinetic with a contract for the supply of three high-speed MGP 150 machining centers. These new machines will be installed at the Fouchana site, in Tunisia, in 2013, increasing the number of Figeac Aéro’s MGP 150 centers to six.
Given the major industrial challenge presented by this investment, technical support will be provided by Fives Cinetic to allow Figeac Aéro to rapidly obtain the optimum performances from these machines.
Snecma (Safran), a leading aeronautical and space engine manufacturer, has awarded Fives Cinetic a contract for the industrial transfer and mechanical and electrical retrofitting of a horizontal broaching machine designed to equip a turbine disc production line. The machine was assessed and dismantled by Fives Cinetic in the United States. It is currently being renovated in France before being installed and started up in fall 2013.
These orders confirm the appeal of Fives Cinetic’s technologies and expertise among the major players in the aeronautical sector.
