CyGrind: A Cylindrical Grinding Turnkey CNC System Solution

ANCA Motion’s newly developed CyGrind CNC solution challenges the conventional approach to cylindrical grinding. The CyGrind Cylindrical Grinding software strikes a perfect balance between flexibility and user friendliness, which when combined with advanced features of the CNC control, delivers a high-end solution for precision cylindrical grinding. This capability has been further enhanced with the newly released off-centre and non-round grinding options.  The modern user interface allows the operator to easily define and visualise the geometry segments as well as all process parameters using a logical process-driven flow. 
The software includes a simulation mode allowing a visual review of the process prior to grinding. CNC features developed specifically for grinding processes, such as Live Offset and ANCA Motion’s unique in-cycle MPG Feed, improve productivity and operator confidence when setting up and running a cylindrical grinding job.
CyGrind offers the complete package, providing extensive functionality and user friendly software, making it the most comprehensive on the market.

  • Simple and flexible graphical geometry editor for part definition.
  • Flexible wheel geometry specification combined with graphical representations.
  • Unique MPG feed feature allows operators to manually move along a programmed path.
  • Compensation and adjustment options to ensure parts meet accurate specifications.
  • Full support for part probing, gauging and wheel dressing.
  • Off Centre and grinding of non-round shapes.
  • Separate logical machines allow the grinder and loader to work independently for loading operations. 

Laser Cutting Control Solutions

ANCA Motion’s laser cutting control system is the complete package, offering hardware and software solutions.
Our laser cutting application software; Cut Assist, supports advanced features such as ramping frequency and duty during piercing, fast and reliable height following control, laser head protection during all operations, ability to start from any item on the part, and can cut 1,200 holes in one minute.

  • Our Commander software is easy-to-use and is fully customisable.
  • ANCA Motion’s AMI5000 Touch Pad HMI supports fast and flexible access for real-time control, in conjunction with the handheld EtherCAT Remote Handheld Pendant.
  • Expect high precision with ANCA Motion’s AMC5 CNC, and high performing motion control delivered by ANCA Motion’s AMD5x Multi-Axis Servo System.
