Do more with less; it’s the mantra of manufacturers worldwide as they look for ways to increase productivity. Turning centers from Fives are designed around this premise with the offer of a wide range of multi-functional capabilities.
Fives offers Giddings & Lewis vertical turning centers with the capacity, power and accuracy to handle the most demanding machining requirements. The optional multi-functional capabilities such as live spindles, side heads and pallet shuttles add flexibility and reduce setups and cycle times.
Giddings & Lewis V Series
The new Giddings & Lewis V Series vertical turning centers with 800 mm to 2.5 m tables, have standard features not offered by most manufacturers - a hydrostatic ram for heavy precision cuts and an infinitely-adjustable, dual-scale cross slide able to handle a wide range of parts. Designed with industry-leading functionality and reliability, V Series vertical lathes are a productive addition to any shop floor.
Giddings & Lewis VTC Series
The versatility of the Giddings & Lewis 1.25 to 4.5 meter VTCs make them a mainstay in shops that machine a variety of parts offering live spindles, right angle heads, grinding and more.
Giddings & Lewis 5 to 8 Meter VTCs
Manufacturers in the heavy equipment and energy fields wrestle with parts that weigh tons and require incredible turning diameters. The largest Giddings & Lewis vertical lathes can swing parts as large as 6 to 9 meters in diameter. The 200 kW (267 hp) motors make light work of heavy metal removal.
