Slideshow: Trends and Technology at IMTS 2016
The size and scope of a show like IMTS makes it impossible to cover everything of interest, but here's a taste of the technology and trends we were taking note of this year.

ANCA FX Linear Series of CNC Tool and Cutter Grinders

Tool Grinders Increase Accuracy with Shaft Linear Motors
ANCA’s FX Linear series of CNC tool and cutter grinders are designed to increase accuracy and reduce maintenance using ANCA-designed tubular shaft linear motors.

Trial by Fire
Founded in 1976, Taurus Tool & Engineering started as a multi-step cutting tool manufacturer, and always had a good reputation for quality tools.  It started with two partners and a team of skilled employees, ultimately growing its Schaumburg, Illinois, shop to 17,500 square feet.

All Fired Up
After Taurus Tool and Engineering, a manufacturer of custom cutting tools, lost its production facility in a fire, it was able to rebuild the business on an entirely new basis.

ANCA FX7 Linear tool and cutter grinder

Grinder Regrinds, Sharpens Tools
ANCA’s FX7 Linear tool and cutter grinder features a 19-kW wheel spindle to accommodate a range of tool types and geometries.

ANCA FX linear cutting tool grinder

Tool Grinders Equipped with Tubular Shaft Linear Motors
ANCA’s FX Linear series of cutting tool grinders are said to provide higher grinding accuracy while reducing maintenance within a smaller footprint.

In-House Tool Grinding: the “Indirect” Machine Tool Investment
Though CNC tool grinders are used primarily by cutting tool manufacturers and regrinding services, several factors have made these machines increasingly attractive for in-house tool grinding by production facilities.

Techni-ANCA Partnership Strengthened
ANCA has increased its stake in the waterjet cutting machine supplier.

Techni, ANCA Announce Partnership
ANCA Group (Wixom, Michigan), a supplier of CNC systems and grinding machines, has announced that it will take a 25-percent equity share in waterjet manufacturer Techni Waterjet (Lenexa, Kansas) during the next two years with options to develop a closer partnership in the future.   According to both companies, the partnership is an obvious one given their long-standing relationship, which included the joint development of the core software for Techni’s Quantum electric servo pump (ESP) and PAC-60 bevel cutting head.

Automated CNC Tool Grinding System
The MX7 CNC tool grinding system was developed for high flexibility and quick change-over to accommodate smaller batch sizes and high volume capability for production houses, the company says.

A Streamlined Alternative for Automated Tool Manufacturing
This automated, single-machine system enables tool manufacturers to completely grind mixed batches of varying tool types and sizes unattended.

Last Glance at IMTS 2010
It would be impossible to cover all of the key exhibitors at IMTS 2010—even if every booth got merely a quick glance. However, the editors of MMS did get glimpses of some interesting technologies exhibited at the show...
