Anca’s MX5 CNC tool and cutter grinder is designed for producing end mills in mixed batches. The grinder offers a 26-kW spindle and two wheel packs for grinding HSS and carbide cutting tools ranging to 16 mm (5/8").
 
The grinding wheel and spindle are supported by a bi-symmetrical gantry casting which evenly straddles the tool center line. The design enables the grinding wheel to remain close to the C-axis pivot point and is said to minimize thermal growth, increase rigidity and promote high profile accuracy for tools requiring five-axis movements (such as corner radii or ballnose end mills).
 
Anca’s ToolRoom software featuring an end mill wizard and intelligent, integrated 3D graphics simulation is included. The grinder also can be equipped with the company’s RoboMate high-capacity compact loader.

  • Double-Disc Grinding On The Move

    The double-disc grinding process is consolidating its position in automotive applications but is moving into other industries. Double-disc grinders are now easier to operate, and they have added capabilities for control flexibility, precision process control, faster changeovers, and grinding of nontraditional materials.

  • Getting The Most From Creep-Feed Grinding

    No other process can do what creep-feed grinding can do. Recent tests show even more can be gained by optimizing every element of a creep-feed system.

  • What Is Single Point OD Grinding?

    Two enabling technologies -- superabrasive wheels and high precision servo control -- come together to provide a contour grinding process that resembles an OD turning operation. For many medium volume OD grinding applications, this method may be a means to consolidate several manufacturing steps into a single setup.
