ANCA invest with a DANOBAT-OVERBECK grinding machine
ANCA invests with a DANOBAT-OVERBECK grinding machine in its machine shop capabilities to deliver the highest accuracy components for its cnc grinders.
A DANOBAT-OVERBECK ID-400L precision internal grinder has recently been installed in ANCA’s head office in Melbourne, Australia.
ANCA has made a significant investment in its machine shop at Melbourne, Australia to build its capabilities in process technology. A core strength of ANCA, the machine shop is a valuable centre of excellence for the company and the investment will boost the internal grinding and precision measurement capabilities.
Mark Patman, Manufacturing Operations Manager at ANCA said: “In the Melbourne factory we have a large modern machine shop and dedicated precision grinding cell that feeds directly into the assembly of our products. Both pieces of equipment will integrate into our already established internal component manufacturing function, supporting greater flexibility to the overall supply chain and reducing lead times.”
As a world leading precision CNC Grinder producer ANCA is continually striving to improve their productivity while maintaining the highest quality of their machining components. The purchase of a DANOBAT-OVERBECK ID-400L precision internal grinder provides additional capacity in the manufacture of precision rotary components.
Mark continued: “To select the right equipment, ANCA studied several leading internal grinder manufacturers along with roundness checker manufacturers. It was a very thorough review and involved visiting the manufactures and assessing their products to ensure they would meet our needs.”
The team selected a DANOBAT-OVERBECK ID-400L internal grinding machine because it offered the longest bed, fastest axis speed, most powerful spindles and largest working envelope. Its one-piece natural granite base offers exceptional rigidity and stability benefits which is ideal for internal grinding.
“I am pleased with the new equipment, but more importantly the companies we have partnered with – DANOBATGROUP and Taylor Hobson. Our customers are demanding tighter and tighter tolerances and this market requirement eventually flows down to the accuracy of the components produced and in turn the accuracy of the machines and processes making those components.”
“We have been responding to this by investing in new equipment but also with the right partners that can support us in producing higher accuracy parts. As a team, we all worked hard to achieve some challenging tolerances and I want to give credit to all involved for delivering a greatly improved capability to ANCA.” Mark concluded.
The DANOBAT-OVERBECK ID-400L has many of the typical quality features that give the machines their good name and it is one of the latest developments in internal and external cylindrical grinding machines, designed specifically for internal and external grinding of long workpieces.
