ANCA celebrates 40 years in 2014

ANCA was established in 1974 in Melbourne, Australia by Pat Boland and Pat McCluskey who are joint Managing Directors. In 2014 ANCA is celebrating 40 years of innovation. Over that time ANCA has been first to market with many features including CIM3D and the MPG feed. With the release last year of the EDGe and MicroPlus, ANCA continues to strive towards the achievement of continued excellence and tighter tolerances for customers.

If you are visiting IMTS this year, please visit the ANCA stand and wish us Happy Birthday. You might even meet one of the two Pats themselves!

 ANCA 40 years 

See the new EDGe Erosion & Grinding machine in action 

The EDGe was launched at EMO last year and has been a popular addition to the ANCA range. Our customers now have the flexibility to erode PCD (polycrystalline diamond) tools and grind carbide and HSS tools on the same machine. This provides increased opportunities in the growing PCD tool market.

The EDGe will be displayed with the PREMIER Collet Adaptor and the FastLoad Compact Loader. 

The EDGe includes the latest technology erosion power generator. The eSpark generator monitors and controls the energy level of every spark for optimum surface finish, material removal and cycle time.

See an ERP tool processing system integrated with the TXcell

ANCA will be demonstrating an ERP (enterprise resource planning) tool processing system using the TXcell tool grinder with integrated robot work cell. The complete tool manufacturing system will demonstrate how you can reduce lead time and eliminate errors using RFID (radio-frequency identification) or barcode technology.
