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...

CNC Tool and Cutter Grinder
The small-footprint FastGrind CNC tool and cutter grinder is designed for high-speed resharpening of tools ranging to 9.4" in diameter using custom iGrind software.

ANCA software

Software Provides The Edge For Toolgrinding
These days, software is increasingly providing the machining skills that once were the domain of experienced operators. This is especially true at cutter grinding shops where complex three-dimensional geometry, difficult materials, extreme tolerances and short lead times are typical.
