The AutoMarkX’s new, retrofittable rotary work-holding system allows for unlimited index marking around the tool, with automatic Z-axis focus and compatibility with tool shanks from 3 mm–32 mm. Moreover, the AIMS Autoline Basic, the standard interface for easy loading at the AutoMarkX, enables smoother material transfer between machines. By using a manual trolley system combined with AIMS pallet carriers, Autoline Basic streamlines the transfer of heavy tool pallets between machines, reducing labor-intensive processes.

The FX7 ULTRA introduces cutting-edge technologies, including ANCA’s nanometer control, revolutionizing precision grinding for small and microtools down to 0.1 mm in diameter. This technology breakthrough is already redefining the standards for tool and component grinding with the highest levels of accuracy and surface finishes.

New software, hardware, and design features significantly improve surface finish, accuracy, and controlled runout, ensuring batch consistency from the first ground tool to the last. The FX7 ULTRA is the go-to solution for precision grinding in industries that rely on small tools, including electronics, telecommunications, medical devices, aerospace, automotive, die mold, and general machining.

ANCA has further developed its AIMS system for automated tool production. At EMO, visitors can see examples from the field, with systems operating completely unattended.

By using the latest innovations in peel grinding technology, ANCA guarantees exceptional stability, accuracy, and value, all achieved on a single machine. Manufacturers can now produce high-quality tools with confidence, knowing that the MX7 ULTRA delivers outstanding results.

Smart automation enables unattended cutting tool production

ANCA’s commitment to excellence is further emphasized through strategic partnerships with industry leaders. At EMO 2023, ANCA will collaborate with Mitsubishi, presenting its EDM machine at the booth, and GDS clamping technology, presenting a cohesive ecosystem of solutions that streamline processes across the process chain.

EMO 2023 offers an exclusive opportunity for industry professionals to explore ANCA’s latest advancements in grinding technology, witness revolutionary world premieres, and engage with experts from the field. Visitors will also experience exclusive product launches at the show.

Strategic partnership with industry leaders

Years of continuous refinements at ANCA have made the ULTRA technology possible. ANCA’s vertical integration—where machines, controls, drives, and precision components are all designed and manufactured in-house—are key to its success. Successfully introduced to the industry last year on the MX machine platform, he ULTRA boasts the highest accuracy and quality cutting tools in the world. The MX7 ULTRA achieves one nanometer axis resolution, and can maintain better than +/– 0.002 mm line form accuracy of any profile, which includes ballnose and corner radius endmills.
