Machine Tool Builder Launches Dedicated Robotic Platform



Fives Liné Machines, a North American machine tool builder, has announced the launch of Liné Machines Robotics. "The robotics options will complement the traditional, large machine tool solutions already being provided to the aerospace, rail and heavy equipment industries," said a company spokesperson.

"Liné Machines Robotics will offer cost-effective and flexible solutions for aerospace and other industries. Our robotics can be offered as an additional option or in conjunction with large machine solutions."

"The solutions from Liné Machines Robotics will assist manufacturers in maximizing the efficiency of new or current equipment," said Guy Lalonde, President, Fives Liné Machines. "Additionally, our robotics efforts will contribute to increasing part reliability as well as taking certain processes from manual to automated."

Heading this new activity are François Arsenault and Maurice Chevarie, who have more than 50 cumulative years of experience in the robotics field. They will direct the teams for engineering, applications and business development.

Liné Machines Robotics will develop solutions around these seven core processes:

  • mill, trim and drill
  • deburring and polishing
  • cleaning and surfacing
  • forming
  • inspection and scanning
  • automation, tooling and part holding
  • peripheral equipment for machine-tools.

"Robotics solutions will be explored in the laser, waterjet, milling, shot peening, scanning, vision and other technologies," said the spokesperson. "For each project, the team will look at potential increases in reliability, productivity and health and safety. As with other solutions from Fives, the Liné Machines Robotics dedicated team will work closely with clients to define customized specifications to meet with their needs." Liné Machines Robotics will have the support and expertise from Fives' Metal Cutting | Composites activity, and other companies within the Fives Group.
