"The ANCA Academy," the series of videos from ANCA that cover a different technical topic each month, has a new host. The third video in the series is called "Introduction to ANCA Software Applications," and introduces Hugh Ingham to the series.
The episode demonstrates ANCA's ToolRoom software, and its tool design flexibility, ensuring that a user's grinder will efficiently handle any manufacturing or regrinding challenge.
Ingham started at ANCA as an applications engineer in 2015, and for three years, was involved in testing and the development of new standard products, as well as grinding applications for custom solutions. In that time, he had multiple opportunities to travel to Thailand, Japan and South Korea gaining firsthand knowledge of customers' experiences.
In 2018, Ingham was seconded for two years to ANCA Germany, functioning as both an applications and mechanical design engineer to deliver custom solutions to customers.
In 2020, he returned to Australia and since then has been continuing to develop custom solutions for a wide range of applications including medical, automotive, aerospace and more.
