DATRON Uses Smartphone Approach for New Milling Machine - "Smart Milling"
In addition to highest production quality and maximum added value DATRON AG presents new compact milling machine and makes milling easier than ever before
As a fully equipped HSC milling machine DATRON neo convinces amongst other things with its ultra-compact size (B 80 cm x D 130 cm x H 190 cm, 700 kg), which fits through a standard door. The all-rounder for manufacturing individual parts and small quantities allows a focused machining of particularly aluminum, nonferrous metals, wood, plastics and composites. With its high-frequency 2 kW spindle the Red Dot Award-winning product innovation achieves with small tools excellent surfaces and filigree engraving details, and due to its ability to machine diverse materials is also a very flexible complementary machine in conventional production environments.
Based on the plug & play principle even less experienced operators and HSC beginners can immediately control the 3-axis DATRON neo milling machine by means of the brand new and easy to understand DATRON next software. Operation with swipe gestures makes milling almost as easy as using your smartphone. Assistant functionalities and an integrated camera, guide the machinist with few steps through the milling program, supporting with self-explanatory icons and realistic 3D tool illustrations and components help quickly identify various functions. The absolute highlight of the machine is the combination of the camera in the interior with the sensitive multi-touch display. The user sets up a workpiece with swipe gestures, so a time-consuming manual entry of complex numerical data is obsolete. The milling operation is illustrated in a 3D simulation to allow corrections before the actual milling process. After super quick setup of the part, the user can rely on the proven high-speed DATRON milling quality.
Highest manufacturing quality with maximum economy
DATRON milling machines are characterized by a high machine rigidity, which is considered an important aspect of the high-speed machining. The rigid, vibration-resistant construction of DATRON’s very compact gantry machines ensures excellent surface quality during the milling process and therefore accurate results.
At AMB 2016, visitors can experience the large-scale, high-precision milling machine DATRON MLCube LS in economic panel processing live with chips flying. It is suitable for the production of front panels and enclosures made of aluminum. At AMB the MLCube LS, which is DATRON typical in spite of the relatively large working space (travel 1,520 mm x 1,150 mm x 245 mm), a relatively small footprint (2,410 mm x 2,280 mm x 1,950 mm) required, milling a complex workpiece from the aerospace industry. The innovative milling technology of the DATRON M8Cube was developed for machining high-tech materials and has become indispensable in many industries and applications. At AMB Stuttgart visitors of the DATRON booth can experience the dynamic production of highly precise microwave antennas with a filigree cutter geometry. Both DATRON machine solutions provide users with inexpensive multiple added value: the highest quality with minimal processing time within the smallest space.
The strife of DATRON AG to continuously provide highest quality in short production times, is reflected in the brandnew 4-in-1 single flute end mill. The balanced, wiper flat and twice polished tool is shown in addition to a selection of other innovative products from the tool portfolio and accessories. Trade visitors of AMB cab experience that the 4-in-1 single flute end mill is largely distinguished by higher deliveries and feed rates, whereby the user can save valuable working time and enjoy lower production costs. The multi talent makes itself thus indispensable for an economic production.
