Non-round Grinding

CyGrind’s capabilities extend to the demanding application of nonround grinding. Non-round grinding involves complex geometry and calculations. With a 300K block per minute processing speed and nanometer internal positioning resolution, the ANCA Motion CNC system is capable of accurately commanding thousands of control points every second to achieve ultra-precision grinding results. Geometry can be specified from the in-built shape library or via DXF import.


The OptiGrind option is a powerful productivity feature which optimizes the grinding process by achieving consistent material removal rates. This innovative capability can significantly reduce cycle time for non-round grinding, giving your machine a competitive edge.
