ANCA Launches GCX Linear to Meet Growing Skiving Cutter Demands
October 23, 2019
The new GCX Linear offers a purpose-built solution for manufacturing and sharpening skiving cutters. With a five axis CNC grinder powered by LinX linear motor technology on X, Y and Z axes, the GCX Linear also comes with features specially designed for skiving cutters and shaper cutters.
“ANCA is responding to the increasing popularity of skiving and resulting surge in demand for skiving cutters. We want our customers to have a complete solution for manufacturing and sharpening skiving cutters and the GCX Linear will set the new benchmark for skiving cutter grinding," said Xiaoyu Wang, product manager at ANCA.
“Dressing the complex wheel profile is critical, ANCA developed the latest acoustic emission monitoring system (AEMS). AEMS can be taught to pick up the right sound of perfect dressing even in a noisy production environment. Built upon supervised machine learning algorithm, AEMS ensures the wheel profile is dressed within micron accuracy with the least possible time while minimizing the reduction in size," Wang added.
The GCX Linear offers a comprehensive gear cutting tool package and was recently featured during the Motion + Power Technology Show in Detroit.
