New Production CNC Tool and Cutter Grinder



The compact ANCA FX5 Linear CNC tool and cutter grinder with Nachi Robot Tool Loader will be demonstrated at EASTEC. Providing all the stability and accuracy characteristics of other ANCA machines, the FX5 utilizes linear motors in the X and Y axes. In conjunction with linear scales, a high degree of machine precision and performance is achieved, resulting in greater tool accuracy and superior surface finish characteristics, reported the company.

The mid-range FX5 Linear has a spindle power of 9.5 kW and also includes an automatic two-wheel changer, providing access to an increased range of wheels and tool types. Designed with the volume endmill producer in mind, the FX5 Linear also has the flexibility to produce mixed batches.

Together with the optional automatic headstock clamping and ANCA's auto tool loading solutions, the FX5 enables unmanned operation and has the flexibility to handle small volumes and mixed batches of tools.

The FX Nachi Robot Tool Loader, to be demonstrated at EASTEC, is a tool loading system that is fully contained within the machine canopy. "This is a low-cost solution for customers seeking automation and is perfect for low-volume production runs," said a company spokesperson.

"ANCA software has always been versatile and easy to use and ToolRoom, ANCA's software, includes an easy-to-use new endmill wizard and intelligent, integrated 3-D graphics simulation," said the spokesperson. "Innovative new control features include a touchscreen that is customizable with Windows and a handheld pendant for simplified setups."

The ANCA FX Linear range consists of three cost effective CNC tool and cutter grinders that are able to perform tasks from light manufacturing to regrinding and full production.

Despite the FX Linear machine's large working envelope, the grinders occupy a relatively small footprint. "Every part on the new machines, from the positioning of the grinding wheel on the C-axis centerline (to reduce thermal influence), to the ANCA patented linear motors, have been aimed at enhancing accuracy, increasing productivity and making operator's tasks significantly easier," said the spokesperson.
