ANCA's Tool of the Year Winner Chosen for Its Profile Accuracy and Complex Geometry

Contour360 won the first ever ANCA Tool of the Year award with their creative and eye-catching tool.

To find the Tool of the Year, ANCA held a competition for customers to submit their favorite tool with the winners judged and announced live at IMTS. The prize was a trip for two to ANCA's headquarters in Melbourne, Australia.

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. Grinding a complex tool like that requires sharp wheels, accurate qualification of wheels and a perfect setup," concluded Pat Boland, Joint Co-Founder at ANCA.

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!"
