Now you can Erode AND Grind with ANCA - the launch of the EDGe machine




EDGe Erosion & Tool Grinding Machine

Produce PCD Tools With the New EDGe


The new ANCA EDGe erosion and tool grinding machine gives you the flexibility to erode PCD tools AND grind carbide and HSS tools. The EDGe includes the proprietary EDGe-Spark Erosion Power Generator for control over the energy level of the spark, surface finish, material removal and cycle time. The EDGe includes the same rigid reliability in all ANCA machines and represents the latest in innovation.


  • Adaptive erosion – adjusts every spark for optimum surface finish and cycle time
  • Double ended HSK wheel spindle means you can erode and grind in one set-up
  • Industry leading user-friendly and versatile tool design software
  • Suitable for tools with a maximum diameter of 220 mm (8.66”)
  • Compatible with the FastLoad Automation System
