SPECIALISED CUTTING TOOLS

Our ANCA 5 axis CNC cutting tool grinding machines are equipped with ANCA’s iView camera system. ANCA iView allows components to be measured while they are still in the machine to ensure perfect accuracy, whether it is a complex form tool, accurate ball nose cutter or profiled roller.

STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY

All machines are networked to allow tools to be programmed and tested on ANCA’s state of the art tool grinding simulation software, prior to being loaded onto any of the machines allowing more efficient & accurate tool grinding.

DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE

Complex form tools with high accuracy are produced using our grinding technology and techniques.

Cutters can be PVD coated to suit application needs.

Tooling can also be reconditioned to the original manufacturer’s specifications to achieve required tool life and cost.

EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL SERVICE

Our 5 axis machining capability covers the manufacture of complex components, tool holders, pocketed tooling and arbours from almost any desired material with high accuracy.

Along with our CNC cylindrical, Jig & Optical Profile grinding, form inserts, rollers and components can be manufactured as desired.
