Datron Dynamics’ C5 high speed milling machine is a solution for high-precision, simultaneous five-axis machining of small parts. The machine is capable of milling titanium and steel in addition to nonferrous metals and abrasive materials, which makes it suitable for applications including medical components and micro-molds. It accommodates parts as large as 100 mm in diameter and is capable of producing highly complex geometries, the company says.
The machine’s low-vibration design delivers quality surface finishes while a rigid 48,000-rpm spindle, precision ballscrews and Heidenhain linear scales provide high accuracy. With a 22-station toolchanger, integrated tool-length measurement and a footprint of only 1 square meter, the machine delivers efficient five-axis machining while taking up little floor space. It fits through a standard 36" door making it ideal for labs and cleanroom environments. The machine also features short setup times and low energy consumption of less than 2.5 kWh average.
