ANCA’s new video academy
April 5, 2022 | 12:35 pm CDT

Tom Nathan, ANCA product manager.

ANCA recently launched "The ANCA Academy," a series of videos that cover a different technical topic each month. The second video in the series is called "Machine Basics: Starting Up Your Machine Before Grinding."  
This training video discusses things to look out for before the machine is switched on, including the air preparation unit, lubrication unit and any potential trip hazards around the machine. Once the machine is ready to be powered up, they go through the processes of homing all axes both manually and automatically, jogging the axes and setting up a warm-up cycle.
