ANCA Tool Of The Year 2022 Judging Panel:

I have great respect for our customers’ knowledge in designing and grinding quality cutting tools. Their skills drive our industry forward and most of ANCA’s new technology is born from a customer’s need to achieve something new. We should celebrate the collective acumen of our industry and showcase the fantastic work that is conducted every day to build our world. I encourage all cutting tool makers to enter our competition and show off your talents.

The Tool of the Year competition displayed how well our customers make use of the flexibility of our software and machines to design and manufacture complex cutting tool geometries.
