This powerful tool saves you time when designing the tool geometry, optimising grinding wheel shapes or the grinding process. The tool geometry data are taken directly from the machine's user interface.
The resulting model can be feely moved, zoomed or rotated for the user to view every single detail of the tool. The CIM3D provides many powerful features. Some of these are:
Features and benefits
Colour coding of the individual machine movements or mapping of the wheel sections to the parts of the tool it is ground with.
Tool cross-sectioning by a randomly defined plane.
Simulation of a Shadow Graph and all of its functions. This feature allows you to measure the results on the screen.
Simulation of the machine elements. You can see the tool being "ground" inside the "real" machine environment. This allows you to observe possible collisions and further optimisation of the grinding process.
ANCA offers a range of CNC tool and cutter grinders to meet large scale manufacturing and entry level production requirements. Your production demands are met by the flexibility of ANCA's tool design software. This enables you to produce a wide variety of complex tools such as end mills, profile cutters, burrs and punches with ANCA's CNC machines.
ANCA's machine tool range includes 5 axis CNC Tool and Cutter grinders and 3 axis Punch grinder to suit your needs.
ANCA's software offers the flexibility of customisation. The advanced features allow creation of complex tools with ease. Our simulation software allows for rapid and precise tool design on the desktop.
