Fives Opens New Technology Center in the U.S.



Fives Landis' 6,000 sq. ft. technology center in Hagerstown, MD

Fives Landis Corp, a manufacturer of precision grinding solutions and grinding accessories, has opened a new Technology Center, located at its headquarters in Hagerstown, MD, near Washington, DC. At 6,000 sq. ft., the new R&D and demo facility features grinding systems from the company's versatile product range, including Landis-Bryant I.D./O.D. grinders, Landis centerless grinders as well as Giustina surface grinding system.

The Hagerstown facility is the second of its kind for Fives' Grinding I Ultra Precision teams after the activity's original demo and research center for grinding applications opened its doors in 2013 at the Fives Landis Ltd. manufacturing plant near Manchester, UK.

"The Technology Center is a new milestone in our long company history and the latest step in the process of expanding our business activities beyond our traditional orbital operations," said Ron Wood, Executive Director of Business Development at Fives Landis Corp. "We will be able to not only develop and provide new products and processes but also help our customers with a proactive approach when facing the challenges of today's production environment, whether through test grinds, application and training support or R&D work. We work closely with key suppliers and other industry experts to find solutions that help our customers to improve and optimize their current operations.

One of the key focuses of the Technology Center will be application support, especially in areas where tough-to-machine or exotic materials traditionally create challenges for equipment and operators, such as in aerospace applications. Dedicated application engineers will work with customers from all industries to solve their specific problems. It will also give clients the opportunity to attend hands-on machine demonstrations to help better understand processes and capabilities and see the quality delivered by Fives' grinding systems first hand.

Wood added, "As one of the few remaining U.S. precision grinding machine manufacturers in this sector, our goal is to strengthen our market position, domestically as well as globally. The new Technology Center is a great opportunity for us to gain more visibility and to better engage with our customers."
