    Frequently Asked Questions

    How is the 3000RPM capability on the headstock utilised?
    TX headstock can be run as a spindle up to 3000RPM which delivers two very useful functions. Firstly, wheel dressing operations take advantage of this when a dresser roll is mounted to the headstock. Secondly, cylindrical grinding operations using peel grinding methods are also possible.
    What work holding options are usable on the TX Linear?
    ANCA offers its own range of PremierPlus collet adapters that utilise a range of Schaublin collet systems for precise and rigid tool holding. TX7 headstock also includes a BT50 taper with pull stud retention, which means operators can alternatively mount their own specific work holding systems.
    I plan to manufacture carbide endmills, what machine options would you recommend?
    Beyond the standard machine with Robomate loader, ANCA offers a number of handy options that can improve your machine productivity for endmills.

    Pop up steady supports the tool during grinding to ensure optimal tool runout.

    LaserPlus automatically measures the tool in the machine and will compensate key dimensions to ensure unmanned production is consistent and accurate.

    AutoStick will recondition a wheel in process, maintaining optimal wheel grinding condition.

    iBalance eliminates wheel pack imbalance, and delivers superior tool surface finish.
