Fives Landis Corp will open its new Technology Center in North America, located at its headquarters in Hagerstown, MD near Washington DC. At 6,000 square feet, the new R&D and demo facility will feature grinding systems from the company’s versatile product range, including Landis-Bryant ID/OD grinders, Landis centerless grinders as well as Giustina surface grinding system.
“The Technology Center is a new milestone in our long company history and the latest step in the process of expanding our business activities beyond our traditional orbital operations,” says Ron Wood, executive director of business development at Fives Landis Corp. “We will be able to not only develop and provide new products and processes but also help our customers with a proactive approach when facing the challenges of today’s production environment, whether through test grinds, application and training support or R&D work. We work closely with key suppliers and other industry experts to find solutions that help our customers to improve and optimize their current operations,” Wood continues.
One of the key focuses of the TechCenter operation will be the application support, especially in areas where tough-to-machine or exotic materials traditionally create challenges for equipment and operators, such as in aerospace applications. Dedicated application engineers will work with customers from all industries to solve their very specific problems. It will also give clients the opportunity to attend hands-on machine demonstrations to help better understand processes and capabilities.
