ToolRoom RN34 is the latest generation of ANCA’s successful software package that has been designed for the aerospace, die mould, general machining and power generation industries.
Thomson Mathew, ANCA Software Product Manager said: “ToolRoom RN34 is aimed to be the differentiator among many suppliers of endmill manufactures in the industry by allowing customers to design complex geometries through software to achieve increased tool life, productivity, cutting volume and increased quality and precision of the workpiece. The constant helix ballnose option, for example, is replaced by a graphical drag-and-drop designer. This ballnose type of tool, with optimised irregular helix curves to reduce vibration, and with near-instant visualisation easily achieved by switching from the 2D projection of the cutting edge to the 3D.”
The new software promises benefits of:
Improved productivity through the intuitive creation of complex endmill geometries.
Tool balancing to increase tool life, cutting volume, quality and precision of the workpieces.
Minimising chatter through the simple design of high performance, complex tools.
Douglas Franke, Fraisa Production Manager said, “With ANCA’s balancing software we have a tool balanced generally within five minutes. Some of our more complex tooling can take a little longer – up to 20 minutes. This drastically decreased our time in setup on the machine which could take several hours. Our biggest success story has been an aerospace customer who is running our 1” aluminium roughing tool at 25k rpm.”
ANCA’s ToolRoom software provides industry renowned tool design flexibility, from the simplest to the most challenging tasks. With the benefit of over 40 years of grinding knowledge, ToolRoom supports both manufacturing or regrinding applications. Flexibility is further enhanced by the fact that ANCA develops all aspects of the machine in house – from the CNC control system and application software to the machine and its accessories.
Technical information on new features
NEW BALLNOSE CYCLES – OD BALL FINISH AND BALL GASH
The new ballnose cycles allow end users to manufacture a range of ballnose tools suitable for finishing and roughing. The new designer edge can accommodate high helix on ball cutting edge for better fracture resistance and reduced vibration due to the irregular curve.
