EDG3 Grinding Machine Delivers Unsurpassed Cycle Times


The EDG3 is a low-cost solution for PCD, carbide (HM), and HSS tool manufacture and resharpening. Optimized for micro to large PCD drills, endmills, and profile tools, the EDG3 is a highly versatile platform with an integrated direct-driven dual erosion and grinding spindle, allowing for supreme flexibility.


Featuring the new ANCA Motion SparX Erosion Generator for control of the EDG (Electro Discharge Grinding) process, the EDG3 delivers unsurpassed cycle time and surface finish results on even the hardest materials. Additionally, with the new ANCA ToolRoom suite of dedicated PCD erosion software—including ballnose, corner radius, drill, and profile cycles—the EDG3 delivers outstanding value for PCD tool manufacturing.


The  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 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.



Dual function erosion and grinding

EDG3 has the flexibility to perform both erosion and grinding operations in the one setup. This makes it a highly adaptable machine capable or manufacture and resharpening not only PCD tools, but also solid carbide and HSS too, meaning your business is better equipped to respond to the varying needs of your customers over time.

X and Y Linear Scales

For increased performance in high quality PCD, HM and HSS tooling, the ANCA EDG3 comes standard with linear scales on both the X and Y axes. A proven accessory, linear scales maintain the accuracy and repeatability of the grinding and erosion process enabling the creation of perfect tools.

Electrode Dresser

Micron precision in the electrode profile and runout will ensure optimal erosion processes. The integrated post mount dresser inside the EDG3 facilitates electrode dressing and is supported by simple setup with easy to use application software.

Premier Collet System

ANCA’s own Premier Collet System ensures micron accuracy for tool runout, with 3 different size options to handle tools up to 40mm shank diameter.
