At IMTS, the top five tools were judged on the following criteria:
"After measuring the surface finish and geometry on Alicona and Zoller machines respectively, the votes were tallied and Contour360 won for their complex tool that was brilliantly executed.

Charles R. Day, Contour360's Vice President & General Manager, said: "It is with heartfelt pride that we accept ANCA's prestigious Tool of The Year award. While indeed this recognition speaks to the craftsmanship of our toolmakers -- it also makes a tremendous statement to the craftsmanship of the machine maker and the support provided!"
