Anca’s TX7 Linear production tool grinding machine with a 37-kW (49HP) peak power direct-drive spindle and BigPlus arbor handles 3-mm diameter end mills to 400-mm-long drills or a 300-mm diameter face cutter. The spindle, mounted in a rigid machine design can do heavy grinding operations, the company says. The tool grinding machine is also equipped with the Anca Motion AMC5 CNC with touchscreen user interface.

The TX Linear range uses Anca LinX Linear motors for all axis motion (X, Y and Z axes). According to the company, with LinX Linear motors there is no loss of machine accuracy over time due to wear and they are not affected by shop temperature variations as higher axis speed, acceleration, and smoother axis motion lead to reduced cycle times.

The production-oriented machine includes a two-wheel pack changer with up to four wheels per arbor, maximum wheel diameter of 200 mm (8”), on-machine tool measurement with standard touch probe and optional Anca LaserPlus and iView, a variety of tool support options including fixed and travelling steady, and two independent wheel dressing options, the company says.
