April 23, 2019 - Fives and its Machine Tool Services & Solutions team, as a FANUC Authorized Integrator, has been able to bring the OEM proprietary features of the Giddings & Lewis 8000 control platform, such as axis tracking, to a FANUC solution.
Fives has a legacy of Giddings & Lewis 8000 controls and will continue to provide technical support and service at a limited capacity. But due to the progression of new technology, the Giddings & Lewis 8000 control has reached the end of its life and Fives will no longer offer any updates or enhancements for this product. Fives and its Machine Tool Services & Solutions team have developed an upgrade for Giddings & Lewis 8000 units: the FANUC 0iF Retrofit.
