Machine Tool Services & Solutions, providing retrofit solutions adapted to customers' needs
Relying on their technical expertise and their long-standing partnership with Siemens, Fives' Machine Tool Services & Solutions teams in the United States responded to a critical need for a major player in the space sector by developing a custom engineered solution.
In order to properly address the end-user’s need, the necessary scope included a Siemens 840Dsl control retrofit, an internally designed Gimbal head and the creation of a simulated Y-axis motion on two Pietro Carnaghi Vertical Turning Lathes. This solution will allow the user to machine features on their parts that required another machine previously.
This project illustrates the ability of Machine Tool Services & Solutions teams to listen and meet customers' needs, and the ability of Fives to support its customers throughout the lifecycle of their equipment, whether it is Fives machines or non-proprietary machines.
