Exclusive processes and hi-tech equipment: Fives displays its latest innovations

Fives will exhibit at the International Paris Air Show in Paris, Le Bourget (June 15th to 21st), at the Aerospace Valley Midi-Pyrénées et Aquitaine Pavilion, booth B-123. Fives will present its latest innovations in the aerospace sector.

High-performance machines and services dedicated to the aerospace industry

With a wide range of high-end machining and automated composites processing equipment that combine quality, value and high-productivity levels, Fives provides support to major players in the aerospace industry for the complete optimization of their manufacturing systems.

Through its Metal Cutting | Composites product range, Fives deploys cutting-edge solutions in close collaboration with its customers, for the automated production of composite components (lamination and finishing), for producing structural aircraft parts (drilling, milling and assembly) and for repairing aircraft parts (additive manufacturing by deposition of metal powders). Fives also offers a complete set of services designed to improve the performance of machines throughout their life-cycle.

The leading global player in automated composites lamination

Fives supplies flexible equipment for all types of production:

- Cincinnati GEMINI™ DGS dockable gantry system, one platform ≠ two processes: tape laying and composite fiber placement.

- Forest-Liné ATLAS One: two-in-one technology: advanced cutting and simultaneous composite tape laying.

Portable, intelligent and ergonomic machines


Fives provides innovative solutions that break through the barriers of traditional technologies:

- Electrical, optimized and economical: eADU®, the enhanced Automatic Drilling Unit, a technological revolution in the field of drilling.

- P2M: a range of compact, portable, robotic machines for finishing structural aircraft parts.


Machining Titanium, meeting the challenge 


Fives leverages its expertise as a manufacturer of machine-tools for precision hard materials machining:

- Cincinnati XT Profiler: the 5-axis / 5 head version has broken the "sound barrier" in aerospace titanium machining by demonstrating a 100+ cubic-inch-per-minute metal removal rate (MRR).

- Forest-Liné Powermill Ti, Forest-Liné Modumill Ti: 5-axis machining centers designed for roughing and finishing titanium and hard material aircraft structural complex parts. A consistent ram extension provides rigidity and precision required for hard materials machining.


Fives supports an innovative 3D manufacturing start-up.

Fives supports BeAM, an innovative start-up in the Additive Manufacturing field. BeAM uses the CLAD® (Direct Additive Laser Construction) process, which was developed for the manufacture and repair of metal parts using 3D manufacturing.

This process revolutionizes typical industrial economic standards and is transforming the maintenance market. Especially suited to the repair of aircraft parts such as turbojet components, it drastically reduces the costs and time required to carry out repairs.

Technological mastery and expertise

- Fives designs, manufactures and commissions for BeAM the 5-axis laser-machine combining the high-precision, high-rigidity and highly dynamic axes required for the implementation of this 3D metal printing process.

Global Services: a range of services for optimized production processes

Improved productivity plus maximum performance and lifespan of production machines enhances return on investment: Fives provides a significant range of resources to its customers in order to meet these three commitments:

- Support throughout the entire life-cycle of the machine

During a machine's operational phase, Fives provides 7 days-a-week support to assure continuity of production.

- Fives' expertise in optimizing equipment maximizes the efficiency of production processes.

- Fives also participates in upgrade projects by adapting existing production equipment and processes to new requirements (rebuild, retrofit and modernization).

Fives: a diversified machine-tool range for a large number of industries

Through its Metal Cutting | Composites business line, Fives, a global supplier of advanced technologies and innovative equipment, offers machines-tools and complete manufacturing solutions to a wide range of industrial sectors (aerospace, automotive, construction, energy, railways etc.).

Know-how and an international reputation for machine-tools

In 2013, Fives significantly strengthened its business activities in the machine-tool sector through the acquisition of MAG Americas. Fives now offers solutions under renowned legacy names such as Cincinnati, Giddings & Lewis, Forest-Liné and Liné Machines. The high levels of expertise of the Global Services' teams allow them to provide services for all brands of machine-tools.
