FX5E Linear: The affordable tool grinding package

The new FX5E is an affordable first step into CNC tool grinding. As an economical choice for a quality elemental machine, it is suitable for small to medium grinding of cylindrical tools.

The FX5E is all-pneumatic - with a pneumatic headstock and a new CAM-driven pneumatic 2 wheel-pack changer. The wheel change is mechanically guided on a circular path. The pneumatics ensures smooth arrival and accurate positioning at its end position after each wheel change motion.
The AR300 automatic tool loader, designed and manufactured by ANCA has a fast tool loading and unloading cycle time of 15 seconds and enables unattended operation. A clever feature of the FX5E is a unique swing table pallet design to load and unload AR300 standard pallets. The swing table is easily accessible directly from the operator door without the need for a separate loader door.
