Fives secures machine order from vehicle manufacturer

Fives Landis Ltd. has secured a large order for five Landis LT2e and four LT2He grinding machines to manufacture camshafts and crankshafts. The machines will be installed in plants based in Western Europe and South America.

The machines will allow the customer to develop “a brand new, more flexible engine configuration that will further develop their future commercial group fleet. The machines also give the customer full flexibility to manufacture their existing range of camshafts and crankshafts, in addition to newer engine developments,” Fives Landis Ltd states.

The performance benefits of the Landis LT2e camshaft grinding machines include “a combination of three grinding wheel spindles, a flexible, automatic tooling solution and state-of-the-art Landis AI simultaneous cam lobe grinding software.”

The LT2He crankshaft grinding machines offer “superior reliability, stability, tooling flexibility and overall quality over time, all facilitated through Landis’ patented grinding wheel contour control technology, which convinced the customer to purchase against fierce competition,” the company states.
