DATRON neo: Simply plug and mill

DATRON AG presents new compact milling machine and makes milling revolutionary easy

(PresseBox) (Mühltal, ) The DATRON AG, medium-sized mechanical engineering company from Germany, revolutionizes CNC milling with the compact 3-axis milling machine DATRON neo. The new product is making its debut at this year's IMTS in Chicago and at the AMB in Stuttgart.

The new, ultra-compact high-speed milling machine DATRON neo (H 188 cm x W 80 cm x D 130 cm, 700 kg) turns out to be a true all-rounder for small batch production and prototyping. Due to its dynamics, it provides a high surface quality, intricate engraving when using small tools, and is ideal for a wide range of applications and millable materials. This makes DATRON neo a flexible machining solution for both conventional production environments and rapid prototyping labs.

While the ease-of-use makes DATRON neo a logical choice for easy entry into CNC and high-speed cutting (HSC) technology, advancements in its control software, DATRON next, distinguishes it as revolutionary. Based on the Plug-and-Play approach even inexperienced machinists get to easily control the 3-axis CNC milling machine due to its user-friendly software concept. Similar to using a smartphone with swiping gestures, the milling process becomes nearly as simple as 3D printing. Assistant functionalities and an integrated camera help the user to successfully start the milling process in just a few steps.

Self-explanatory icons and realistic 3D illustrations of tools and components facilitate quick identification of various functions and provide a positive user experience. The premiere advancement of DATRON neo technology is the combination of a camera in the working area controlled by a sensitive multi-touch display. This allows the user to easily locate and setup the work piece with swiping gestures which prevents the time-consuming manual entry of complex numerical data. In addition, the operator is given the opportunity to simulate the milling process in 3D in advance and can adjust details before actually milling. After super quick setup of the part, the user can rely on the proven high-speed DATRON milling quality.

Visually, the DATRON neo is also vanguard. Just before the official market launch the industrial milling solution received the red dot industrial design award 2016. With its straightforward and timeless design, this future-oriented, 3-axis milling machine offers ergonomic accessibility and was especially engineered to machine aluminum, nonferrous metals, wood, engineered plastics and composites. This fully equipped HSC milling machine fits through any standard door and therefore is ideally suited as an extremely space-saving manufacturing system in small run production and prototyping environments.

Experience the revolutionary DATRON neo at the AMB 2016 in Hall 7, booth A52. Our DATRON experts are looking forward to introducing you to this rock star among the compact milling machines.
