EDG5: Optimised cycle time and surface finish 

The EDG5 is ANCA’s new highly capable, low-cost solution for PCD, carbide (HM) and HSS tool manufacture and resharpening. Optimised for micro to large PCD drills, endmills and profile tools, the ANCA EDG5 is a highly versatile platform with an integrated direct-driven dual erosion and grinding spindle, allowing for supreme flexibility.

Featuring the all new ANCA Motion SparX Erosion Generator for control of the EDG (ElectroDischargeGrinding) process, the EDG5 delivers unsurpassed cycle time and surface finish results on even the hardest materials.

With the all new ANCA ToolRoom suite of dedicated PCD erosion software, including ballnose, corner radius, drill and profile cycles, the ANCA EDG5 delivers outstanding value for PCD tool manufacturing.

PCD (Poly Crystalline Diamond) tools are created using diamond as the main cutting substrate. This can be in the form of traditional brazed inserts along the cutting edge, or more recently, veined, chevron or full PCD round tooling. Owing to its extreme hardness, PCD tools are well suited to high wear applications in cutting non-ferrous materials, including aluminum alloys, plastic and metal composites (CFRP, PRP, GRP), graphite, timber, stone and glass.  They are increasingly popular due to their much longer tool life compared to conventional cutting tools. Growth in the PCD tool market has been double that of standard carbide cutting tools over recent years, making it an outstanding opportunity for tool manufacturers looking to be active at the leading edge of cutting tool technologies 


The new ANCA Motion SparX Erosion Generator uses the latest best-in-class Gallium Nitride (GaN) Semiconductor power electronics for Wide-bandgap switching speeds. When compared to equivalent componentry, the mega-amp per pulse technology enables ANCA customers to broaden the power range they can access and utilize. The ANCA Motion SparX Erosion Generator exhibits superior performance over the range of Extra-Heavy Roughing to Ultra-Fine Finishing operations, utilizing Nano and Pico-pulse technology for high energy-density ablation.  This enables vastly superior controllability, providing our customers with optimised feedrates, superior surface quality and drastically reduced cycle times. This pulse precision allows erosion that ranges from ultra-low energy pulses for exceptional ultra-fine finishing, through to high energy pulses for fast material removal

Cycle Time

In the PCD erosion process, cycle time is directly related to the Material Removal Rate (MRR). The all new ANCA Motion SparX Erosion Generator delivers unrivalled increases in MRR utilizing the new Extra-Heavy Roughing, Super Fine Finishing and Ultra-Fine Finishing operations. What this equates to is an unsurpassed increase in MRR and a 50% decrease in cycle time compared to competitor machines - arguably the fastest cycle times in the market.
