The small-footprint ANCA FastGind CNC tool and cutter grinder for high speed resharpening of tools 0.35-mm to 12-mm diameter offers users the latest CNC grinding technology, from robust mechanicals to the company’s iGrind software.

The concept behind this cutter grinder is to provide the grinding quality and reliability of the company’s range at an economical cost, according to the company. The machine 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 sharpened with the machine.

The machine uses a double-ended HSK40 wheel spindle providing flexibility and reducing setup time. Maximum wheel diamter is 8”. A part probing system is standard with the machine, and the iView tool inspection software package is optional.

The optional iView includes software, which works seamlessly with the machine operating software, and a camera that mounts easily inside the ANCA grinder. The package has a standard magnification of 300:1. Other magnifications can be provided, and the accuracy of the system is 2 microns—more than enough for most tool inspection needs.

The high precision Tendo-E hydraulic expansion toolholders provide the combination of performance and value, along with superior vibration dampening, the company says.

The toolholders can be changed in seconds without additional peripheral equipment and quick tool presetting with an axial length setting screw. They offer flexibility because of the use of intermediate sleeves, and all conventional shank types can be clamped. The toolholders are available for SK 40/50, JIS-BT 40/50 and HSK-A 63.
