DATRON M10 Pro, with Linear Scales and +/- 5 Micron Position Accuracy to be Shown for the First Time in North America at IMTS 2010.
September 13 - 18, 2010, IMTS 2010, Chicago, IL – Datron Dynamics, Inc. will exhibit their new M10 Pro for the first time in North America at IMTS 2010. This “next generation” in their line of German-engineered high speed machining centers includes significant advancements in their machining technology. Specifically, the M10 Pro features linear scales on all axes driven by larger motors and drives yielding a +/- 5 micron position accuracy and rapids up to 30 meters per minute. The addition of linear scales led to the development of a newly designed high-speed CNC control for 3 to 6 Axes. The M10 Pro has a direct-drive, liquid-chilled, 40,000 RPM spindle using HSK-25E tool holders with <1 micron run-out.

With a gantry construction the M10 Pro has a maximized work area of 40” x 28” while only using a floor space foot print of 79” x 83”. Added functionality like palletized work-holding and advanced probing is available for manufacturers looking to reduce set-up time and increase part quality and uniformity. The M10 Pro is positioned for applications requiring high accuracy and spindle speed such as defense, aerospace, electronics, energy, medical part prototyping and production.
Datron Dynamics, Vice President, Robert Murphy, says, “The M10 Pro is unlike any other machine in its class and represents the next generation of efficient machining solutions. Its unique construction offers a tremendous work area with extreme accuracy”. “Companies that are investing in technology and looking for top quality “out of the box” solutions usually end up finding us”. “Datron has never lost focus of our “high-speed” roots … now we’ve added ever higher precision and flexibility."
