High-Speed Milling Machine Suited for Creating Models, Prototypes
Datron Dynamics’ Neo is a compact, high-speed milling machine designed to deliver a productive, in-office machining solution for improving and accelerating the engineering workflow.
Datron Dynamics’ Neo is a compact, high-speed milling machine designed to deliver a productive, in-office machining solution for improving and accelerating the engineering workflow. Simple operation and easy post processing enable design professionals to create precision models, prototypes and three-dimensional metal parts without leaving the workplace.
With its interior camera, multi-function touchscreen interface and operation terminal featuring the company’s Next software, the milling machine is designed to appeal to machining beginners and make operation easy. The integrated camera and 3D touch probe eliminate the time-consuming task of setting up jobs by using automatic recognition of the workpiece location, which the operator draws directly on the touch screen. The interface guides users through the milling process much like an app. Beginners benefit from the simple user interface and graphics.
The ergonomic design enables operators to load a workpiece from a position above the machining table while the height and angle of the workpiece is automatically set up at the operating terminal. The enclosure gives the operator a view of and easy access to the machining area. The machine can fit through a standard doorway and can be installed in a few hours.
Ideal for rapid prototyping and short-run manufacturing, the Neo can mill a variety of materials up to 20" × 16.5" × 9" in size with its 40,000-rpm spindle and 24-station automatic tool changer.
Hand-scraping the mating surfaces of a CNC machine tool’s motion system offers myriad advantages.
Old-world craftsmanship combines with precision machining on a vertical machining center and Swiss-type lathe to produce some of the only U.S.-made mechanical wristwatch movements.
... not to mention grinding with air. Thanks to high speed spindles powered by shop air, this job shop expands the work its VMCs can do.
