iView: Tool Measuring System


ANCA iView Precision Tool MeasurementiView-(1).gif

iView is a measuring system which is able to measure the ground tool in its original clamping inside the grinding machine. An image of the ground tool as taken by the iView camera is compared with the ideal overlay shape, which is generated by the iView software. The grinding cycle is then automatically compensated.


Accurate measurement of the:

  • tool shape
  • outer diameter
  • endface (only for GX7, RX7 and FastGrind)
  • tool profile
  • 3 points angles
  • 3 points radius (e.g. corner radius)
  • 2 points distance
  • 3 points parallel distance

Tool ground in single set-up is measured in its original clamping inside the machine

Accuracy of 2 microns (0.0008 inch)

Semiautomatic measurement cycles

Automatic grinding cycle compensation

Import of DXF files for profile tool overlays

Easy and fast set-up

One camera can be easily shared by several ANCA machines

Measurement protocols printouts

Cost-effective solution for high precision tool measurements
