Acromil Corporation, a supplier of complex structural components and assemblies for the aerospace and defense sectors, has ordered two advanced Cincinnati Wide-Range (WR) Titanium Profilers and a Giddings & Lewis Horizontal Boring Mill (HBM) from Fives. This purchase is the start of a two-phase expansion.
Acromil and Fives will also collaborate to establish a world-class 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.”
