EMO debut for ANCA TXcell

Renowned for its wide range of high quality CNC tool grinders, ANCA will be giving an EMO debut to the new TXcell, a revolutionary system designed for efficient cellular tool manufacturing (Hall 6 – stand F14).

Equally suited to mass production or small batch sizes and short lead times, TXcell (pictured) is a flexible CNC tool grinder having an integrated robot work cell that has the unmatched capability of taking bar stock to finished tools in a single setup. ANCA refer to this process as Blanket Grinding. TXcell offers outstanding production flexibility, while also excelling in terms of volume productivity and operational accuracy. ANCA will also be demonstrating what the company is claiming to be the answer to poor productivity within the global regrinding industry, the GX7 + with wheel changer and the GLX auto feeder. As the regrind industry's batch runs and lead times are always very short, any level of automation has previously been seen as impractical. To help solve the problems of inefficiency that have plagued the industry, ANCA's innovation centre has been working closely with customers to create this cost-effective, flexible solution, which gives regrinding companies the potential for vastly increased productivity levels. Also being demonstrated will be ANCA's new MX7 machine. With the ability to manufacture a variety of tools up to 16 mm (5/8") diameter, ANCA's next-generation CNC grinder is specifically designed to meet the demanding needs of tool production facilities seeking maximum output, while retaining the flexibility to react quickly to customer needs. No ANCA exhibition stand would be complete without the company's best-selling TX7+ universal grinder. The result of 20 years of intensive R&D and customer feedback, the reasons for the global success of the powerful TX7+ can be found in ANCA's advanced CNC technology, mechanical and electrical design and advanced software engineering. Since its relatively recent introduction, this machine has become an industry benchmark in CNC tool grinding.
