The new ANCA FastGrind CNC Tool and Cutter Grinder for high-speed resharpening of tools to 9.4 in. diameter will be demonstrated at IMTS 2010,
The concept behind FastGrind is to provide the grinding quality and reliability of the ANCA range at an economical cost.
A robust machine, the FastGrind offers very high positioning accuracies in all five mechanical axes plus an additional four software axes. Linear axes are ball screw-driven and the two rotary axes are direct-driven. Drills, step drills, end mills, burrs, profile tools, routers as well as special tools can be efficiently sharpened with the FastGrind.
The machine uses a double-ended HSK40 wheel spindle providing flexibility and reducing setup time. Maximum wheel diameter is 8”. A part probing system is standard with the FastGrind and ANCA iView tool inspection software package optional.
All machine axis saddles are made from a single-piece casting resulting in extreme rigidity and reducing vibration during machining. The grinding spindle is also mounted on a single piece casting which ensures machine overall robustness.
