This compact version of Datron Dynamics’ Raptor class of machining centers is now offered with a 51" × 51" footprint. The machine also features a 20" × 20" × 8" working envelope that can accomodate fixturing and batch-machining of small parts.  The smaller bed size facilitates the use of a solid slab of granite for the machining table, which provides increased rigidity to minimize vibration, the company says.

The miniRaptor   includes standard features such as a 60,000-rpm spindle with a 0.125" collet; a three-tool automatic tool management system; Microsoft Windows-based control software; a PC with 256 MB RAM and 40 GB part/program storage; a hand-held controller; Ethernet networking capability, remote monitoring capability; a removable chip disposal tray; and a full machining-area enclosure with a door safety interlock system.

This package can be augmented with a number of options including a 600W, 60,000-rpm spindle with 0.250" collet; a 10-tool automatic tool management system; a Z-Correction probe that recognizes irregular workpiece topology; and more. A 3D probe extension that locates and compensates for material irregularities in XYZ coordinates and facilitates reverse engineering is also available.
