Erosion and grinding in one high-accuracy toolmaking machine
The EDGe, with a double-ended HSK wheel spindle, has the flexibility to erode PCD (polycrystalline diamond) tools and grind carbide and HSS tools on the same machine. The versatile machine is suitable for a wide variety of tools and applications and offers manufacturers a new benchmark for cycle time and surface finish in PCD tool production.
New materials, such as carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) and other composites in aerospace, automotive and other industries have motivated the demand for tools of super-hard materials, such as PCD.
The ability to manufacture a variety of tools (up to 220 mm or 8.66” in diameter and up to 20 kg or 44 lbs in weight) makes the EDGe ideal for customers looking to reduce the risk associated with moving into the growing PCD-side of the business.
Cellular tool manufacturing: unmatched flexibility, productivity and precision
The ANCA TXcell combines the TX7+ universal grinding and the Fanuc M-20iA robot loader to provide the industry's most flexible and productive cell for grinding a wide variety of rotary cutting tools as well as medica and aeropsace components.
The TXcell robot handles tool loading as well as automatic change of up to 24 wheel packs (some up to 300 mm) with their coolant manifolds.
Ancillary processing operations (such as tool polishing, laser etching, etc.) can also be performed by the robot cell as part grinding continues inside the machine.
Offered in a compact format with 2 workpiece/tool pallets, it can be expanded to up to 4.
New software update - more powerful than ever
At IMTS ANCA's software application specialists will be demonstrating a new version of CIM3D (2014 release). This version has many significant improvements including:
• Higher quality images
• Better user icons
• Modernization of the user interface
• Real speed animation at 100% feedrate
• Graphics anti aliasing (much sharper images and lines)
ANCA is a leading global designer and manufacturer of precision CNC tool and cutter grinding machines used worldwide for the production of precision cutting tools in a variety of materials.
ANCA machines are used with great success to produce medical tools and instruments as well as orthopedic parts. ANCA also serves the aerospace, general machining, automotive and furniture industries.
A key advantage to ANCA machines is the user-friendly ToolRoom software and intuitive user interface. The company was the first to provide customers 3D simulation of tool production.
AT IMTS, ANCA will demonstrate new machine tools and software that can provide users more capability and lower cost per part.
