ANCA's Aims to Help Customers Move Towards Smart Factory Solutions at EASTEC

From 3-D simulation software to LaserPlus, an in-process measurement system, to RoboTeach, which makes robotic loaders accessible and easy to program – ANCA has been building a tool box of technology for its customers to reap the benefits of automation and Industry 4.0. ANCA will showcase machines and demonstrations at EASTEC 2019, May 14- to 16 in West Springfield, MA.

Thomson Mathew, Software Product Manager, said: “Get a live demo of the soon to be released ToolRoom RN34 software and learn how it specializes in complex cutting tool geometries for the aerospace, die mold and power generation industry.


"ANCA’s latest ToolRoom RN 34 software release focuses on manufacturing the most complex tool geometries with a perfect balance," said a company spokesperson. "Visitors can get a demo of the endmill cycles for ballnose and corner radius, tool balancing and next generation fluting cycles."


Also on show will be ANCA’s Management Suite for the CNC grinding industry. "It provides customers the technology to monitor the performance of their machines no matter where they are in the world," the spokesperson said. "The new software also enables companies to run smart factories by providing live production information to make data-based decisions on operational improvements. Also launching soon is a new USB WiFi dongle that will add seamless connectivity to machine users."

FX7 Linear: Suitable for Light Manufacturing, Regrinding and Full Production

For customers that require increased flexibility, more spindle power or increased automation capacity that a robot can provide, the FX7 Linear offers these. The FX7 Linear offers a wide range of options for those looking to increase productivity and accuracy. Available as an option is the AR300 robot loader to increase efficiency by automating repetitive manual tasks.


Features include:

Linear motors on X and Y axes

AM5000 control system for faster processing

HSK40 taper provides increased rigidity and accuracy for improved tool surface finish results



ANCA’s AR300 Loader


With over 70% of ANCA customers buying machines with robotic functionality it is fair to say the age of the robots has come. Far from a nice-to-have add on, many CNC machines now come with operator panels that provide in-built control over the grinding software and the robotics function, opening the door to greater automation efficiencies.


"At ANCA we provide a complete solution to our customers, designing and manufacturing almost all our technology in-house," said a company spokesperson. "As part of this we developed our own low-cost solution for tool loading."


The 3-axes ANCA robot has a capacity of 380 tools and accommodates tool sizes up to Ø20 mm (Ø3/4”) x 150 mm (6”) long. The AR300 loader is contained within the compact FX Linear machine footprint, so there is no need for extra floorspace. In addition, there is no need to change gripper fingers between batches, which may further maximizes productivity.


Utilizing the latest control technology from ANCA Motion, the AR300 loader is an enhanced value-for-money auto tool loading solution for the FX5 Linear and FX7 Linear two-wheel changer machines. The loader provides quick tool loading, as the tool is passed directly from the pallet to the collet in a single gripping action.
