Come and see the new FX5 Linear & FX7 Linear tool grinders


ANCA will be demonstrating the new FX Linear tool grinder range at EMO 2015. The FX5 Linear and FX7 Linear models from the range will be on show.

The FX Linear range includes three models and was released at the end of 2014. The range includes a completely new design of machine and colour for ANCA. It also incorporates a significant number of new technologies – including cylindrical linear motors for the first time. It is ideal for everything from light manufacturing, to regrinding and even full production. Its best performance and productivity range is for tools up to a diameter of 12mm. It can grind up to a diameter of 200mm.

Accessories on the machine will include MicroPlus, six wheel changer, PREMIER collet adaptor, Auto Height Adjustable Steady and Fanuc loader.


Be one of the first to test-drive our new ToolDraft software



The ANCA software application specialists on ANCA’s EMO stand will give visitors the opportunity to be the very first to use ANCA's new ToolDraft software for creating quick and easy CAD drawings of cutting tools straight from CIM3D, and the latest ToolRoom and CIM3D 3D simulation software releases.

ToolDraft saves time as creating a CAD 2D drawing of a tool becomes as easy as clicking on the ToolDraft icon in CIM3D. Many different views and dimensions are easily added to the page ready to give to the operator to grind, or to a customer for approval. No more need to export the 3D tool image to an external and non-tool dedicated CAD package.


And the other new products that will be there...



MX7 Linear

The ANCA MX7 Linear is a powerful, versatile CNC tool grinder designed for production grinding. The new cylindrical linear motor design increases reliabilty further and ensures a superior surface finish.



ANCA's erosion and tool grinding machine gives you the flexibility to erode PCD tools AND grind carbide and HSS tools.


MicroPlus workholding & tool support system

The MicroPlus system reduces tool runout to less than 3 micron and consists of two separate assemblies, the flexi-chuck assembly for workholding and the overhead top clamp assembly (OTC) for tool guidance.


PREMIER Collet Adaptor

ANCA's premium range of collet adaptors uses a new totally internal clamping mechanism to prevent possible runout.
