Aerospace Supplier Collaborates with Fives to Advance Titanium Cutting



Acromil Corporation, a primary supplier of complex structural components and assemblies to the aerospace and defense industries, has ordered two advanced Cincinnati Wide-Range (WR) titanium profilers and a Giddings & Lewis horizontal boring mill (HBM) from Fives as the start of a two-phase expansion. Acromil and Fives will also collaborate to establish a hard metals manufacturing center with the latest 5-axis high metal removal technology, with a goal of developing the most productive titanium cutting machines available. The new Cincinnati WR profiler version is optimized for difficult to machine materials, such as titanium and stainless steel.

"Our expansion demonstrates a commitment to the defense and aerospace industries, with the primary goal of developing Acromil to be a Tier 1 supplier supporting customer needs for detail parts and assemblies," said Ed Hatcher, Acromil's Executive Vice President. "We believe our collaboration with Fives Group will change the way aerospace manufacturers approach titanium machining."

The titanium profilers are designed, manufactured and delivered by Fives Cincinnati, Hebron, KY while the Giddings & Lewis HBM is produced and shipped from Fives Giddings & Lewis in Fond du Lac, WI. "The new profilers have been tested extensively with excellent results," said Steve Thiry, President and General Manager of Fives Machining Systems Inc. "The HBM will handle titanium structural components (for a major aerospace OEM) that will highlight the versatility of the Giddings & Lewis machines. It is also a great opportunity for us to work with industry veterans like Ed Hatcher from Acromil as we continue to develop, and advance, high-performance titanium cutting."
