Version 27 Packed with More Improvements

Melbourne - ANCA has recently released version 27 for their X Class range of CNC Tools and Cutter Grinders. This version is packed with new innovative features that make the performance of an ANCA machine more efficient, provide significantly extended flexibility and enhance the possible spectrum of applications.

Product Details

The two main new features with version 27 are the addition of Key Hole Punch software and Delta-C R850 Drill Point. This increases the applications on version 27 to more industries. 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. The Delta-C R850 drill point has been implemented in iGrind and is available in the drill wizard. This is a proprietary drill shape. Version 27 enables sharpening of this drill shape under license.

Version 27 has a wide range of applications, which enable users from many different industries to utilise its broad and flexible functionalities. Some of the more common applications which have been improved are:


Profile Pivot Editor function is a new feature of profile software. This option changes the way in which nine o'clock grinding positions the wheel. If full control is selected then the pivot angle can be specified at the start and end of each profile element. An option has been added in profile grinding that allows the feedrate to be optimised to maintain a constat passage of the grinding point across the profile.


The wizard has been added to the Step editor operation that will allow a single DXF file to be split into multiple step sections. A new menu has been added to the Step Editor operation that allows geometry to be displayed and selected in iView.
