Capable of achieving a surface finish better than 0.2 Ra with run out of less than 2 microns, this four axes grinder for grinding tool blanks complements ANCA's full machine range. The CPX Linear has a large working envelope and powerful grinding spindles to achieve the highest precision and productivity for blank preparation in the market today. Using the pinch peel method of grinding, it offers the same strength, rigidity and thermal stability expected from an ANCA tool grinder.
Taking the best aspects of ANCA's technology and the company's deep experience in the tool grinding industry, the new CPX Linear Blank Preparation Grinder has been designed to surpass customer needs. For example, ANCA's proprietary polymer concrete base provides the upmost stability in its grinding process so the company took that and used it in the CPX Linear model.
