Exciting NEW ANCA MX5 tool grinder to be launched at Grindtec exhibition

ANCA will be launching the new MX5 tool and cutter grinder at Grindtec exhibition in Germany on March 14-17. Visit ANCA to be among the first to see the MX5 in action.

ANCA MX5The MX5 is the latest member of the popular MX family. ANCA has included the most important features of the MX platform – whilst still designing a lower cost machine!

The machine has been designed with the volume producer in mind, but also has the flexibility to easily manufacture mixed batches.

The stability and power has been matched perfectly to the needs of endmill manufacturers.  But the MX5 also suits a wide range of other tool grinding applications, including medical components. However, costs have been reduced compared to the premium MX7 by altering features not required by all users. These include the reduction of the number of wheelpacks from 6 down to 2. This has meant the creation of a precise, flexible machine that is affordable to more customers.

Launch of FastLoad automation system & the usual machine favourites

FastLoad Loader for ANCA FastGrindAlso being launched will be the FastLoad low cost automation system for the FastGrind tool grinder. In addition,the new RoboMate Loader will be demonstrating tool loading on the MX7 and MX5, and multi diameter tool loading using automated collet changing on the GX7.

Other popular machines from the ANCA range will be on show including the TXCell, MX7, GX7 and FastGrind tool grinders. Live demonstrations will be ongoing and applications specialists will be available to answer any grinding questions.

The TXcell is revolutionary in its ability to manufacture finished tools from blank stock, in a single set-up and its ability to handle pre and post grinding operations, such as brush honing and laser etching, directly in the cell. During Grindtec, the TXcell will be demonstrating mixed batch grinding of endmills and punches.

Come & be amazed by the new CIM3D software & Toolroom 2012

 ANCA ToolRoom 2012

A ‘software demonstration booth’ will be set-up on the stand so visitors will have the opportunity to use ANCA’s new Cim3D V7 3D simulation software, new Toolroom 2012 (RN32) and other ANCA software.

ANCA’s application specialists will demonstrate the exciting new Toolroom 2012 features such as the new integrated 3D graphics in iGrind and the new endmill wizard.

They will also demonstrate how Cim3D V7’s simulation time is 30% faster, the new 2D overlays for instant visual verification, and how the improved sectioning tool allows users to precisely dissect the tool for accurate measurement.

And the new accessories we have to show off at Grindtec...

New accessories on show will include ANCA’s new Wheel Qualification Probe which will demonstrate automatic wheel measurement on the MX5. This will provide faster set-up and eliminate human error.

A new laser probe on the MX7 will demonstrate how the OD measurement of a ballnose or profile tool can be checked in the machine after grinding to ensure accuracy and to allow any required adjustments.
