For cutting tool manufacturers, deciding what technology to invest in should be driven by business goals and ANCA will be demonstrating the advantages of investing in a technologically advanced future.
“Designing the best technology requires a multi-pronged approach. We immerse ourselves in the market; are continually inventing; keep a keen eye on new developments and bring them into our applications,” said Pat Boland, ANCA co-founder and joint managing director. “We seek out intelligent, talented people, and interact with customers daily to understand their specific needs. This is how we design and manufacture our market-leading solutions.”
Driven by the automotive industry’s electrification and the general rise of e-mobility, the demand for skiving cutters has seen 30 percent year on year growth. ANCA’s GCX Linear provides a complete solution for customers to tap into this rapidly developing market, including the ability to produce skiving cutters, shaper cutters, and regrinding of hobs. It offers advanced stand-alone software to design and optimize the tool, neatly interfaced with the gear tool package inside ANCA’s renowned ToolRoom software.
The machine is designed for accuracy with features including all axes with LinX linear motors and an enhanced headstock. GCX Linear boasts a series of technologies: AEMS dressing, MTC on grinding spindle and dresser spindle, integrated gear tool measurement, and direct compensation — setting the new standard for producing skiving tools that achieve the highest DIN AA quality class.
ANCA has developed an integrated gear tool measurement system which enables all the grinding-measuring-compensation to be done in the machine. This is the only practical closed-loop solution in the market and will be on display as part of the skiving cutter production process on GCX Linear.
