Capable of achieving a surface finish better than 0.2ra with run out of less than 2 microns the four axes grinder complements ANCA’s full machine range
Launched at IMTS 2018 the CPX Linear has a large working envelope and powerful grinding spindles to achieve the highest precision and productivity for blank preparation in the market recently. Using the pinch peel method of grinding it offers the same strength, rigidity and thermal stability expected from an ANCA tool grinder.
Simon Richardson, Product Manager at ANCA said: “We have taken the best aspects of our technology to build a fantastic machine. For example, our specially designed polymer concrete base provides the upmost stability in our grinding process so we took that and used it in the CPX Linear model.”
“We are known for our ongoing dedication to research and commitment to ensure our technology is surpassing our customers’ needs. This is another major milestone in that approach, providing a complementary machine for the full grinding process. What can I say, our customers asked and we listened - designing our own blank preparation machine.”
The CPX Linear Is The Best In Its Class
Powered By LinX
Our LinX linear motor technology for axis motion (X, Y and V axes), in conjunction with linear scales, achieves superior precision and performance. Specially designed for a lifetime of operation in harsh grinding environments, the LinX motors have a cylindrical magnetic field which means there is no additional down force on the rails or machine base.
With no temperature variations (meaning no need for a separate chiller unit), and being sealed to IP67, there is minimal wear and tear so that the machine accuracy remains over the lifetime of the machine. The LinX linear motor has higher axis speed and acceleration, leading to reduced cycle times while maintaining a smoother axis motion.
