ANCA Developed a Keyhole Punch Software

The key hole punch solution

Melbourne - ANCA developed a keyhole punch software. The Keyhole Punch package combined with the power of the ANCA TX7+ allow complex punch shapes to be manufactured without the long cycle and set-up time of conventional solutions.

Product Details

The Keyhole Punch software allows creation of punch geometries from a library of shapes and also allows creation of customised contours. Unlike standard punch grinders this solution is able to create punches with concave and convex shapes. Once the shape is designed the software will specify the wheel shape required to grind the punch. This wheel shape can then be loaded into the ANCA Wheel Editor. Using the internal dresser on the TX7+ it can be dressed into the wheel.

The complementary high speed and power grinding spindle on the TX7+ allow high material removal rates to reduce overall cycle time. The built-in dresser and dressing software allow quick setup and changeover times.

Some of the benefits of the Keyhole Punch package:

- Quick and easy setup

- In process dressing

- Large material removal rate

- Short cycle time

- Customised shapes
