Fives Giddings & Lewis Celebrating 160th Anniversary

As part of the year-long celebration of events in 2019, Fives Giddings & Lewis is searching for the oldest Giddings & Lewis machine still in production, as well as the machine that is located the furthest away from Fond du Lac.


  • An Overview Of 3 + 2 Machining

    You don't have to use all five axes of a five-axis machine at the same time to get great benefits. Here's what 3 + 2 can do for you.

  • Maximum Aluminum

    Speed changes the rules. To maximize metal removal rate with a high speed spindle, follow some fundamental tooling considerations and mill at just the right rpm.

  • The 400° Difference

    Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
