ANCA TXcell: eXcellence in Cellular Tool Manufacturing



ANCA's TXcell is a revolutionary new system in cellular tool manufacturing that fights the profit squeeze on 3 vital fronts – flexibility, productivity and precision. TXcell combines two proven performers: ANCA's TX7+ universal grinder and the Fanuc M-20iA robot.

The TXcell robot handles tool loading as well as the automatic change of up to 24 wheel packs with coolant manifolds.
