Milling Aluminum using DATRON high speed CNC milling machines

Milling Aluminum | Milling CNC


DATRON high speed milling machines were specifically designed for optimized milling of aluminum. This includes high speed spindles up to 60,000 rpm that allow for high feed rates up to 1,000 inches per minute and reduced cycle times. Plus, our spray-mist coolant evaporates quickly so that parts are clean, burr-free and dry when they come off the machine.This eliminates the need for de-greasing and de-burring operations which saves both time and money. Other DATRON features that lend themselves to milling aluminum and aluminum sheet material are:

Milling Machines for Milling Aluminum:
The M8Cube is an ideal machine for milling aluminum and the 40” x 32” x 9” work area has ample room for various workholding setups like pneumatic clamps, vacuum tables and even a trunnion-style 5-axis system. Precision-ground ball screws, linear guides and brushless direct drives provide superior accuracy in all axes. Optional XYZ probing recognizes irregular surfaces and compensate for them dynamically.

The M10 Pro is our fasted most accurate machine with linear scales for +/- 5 micron position accuracy across the entire work envelope (ISO 230). With a 41" x 35" travel the M10 is capable of rapid rates up to 30 meters per minute. When the shortest cycle times or mirror finish surfaces are required, the M10 is the way to go. Plus, the liquid-chilled, 40,000 RPM spindle is exceptionally suited to rapid, high-volume material removal. The solid granite table adds rigidity for precision milling.

Now, if an extremely large work area is required, as is the case for milling large workpieces or batch milling a run of smaller ones, the MLCube is a large format milling machine that is ideally suited. The 60" x 40" travel of the MLCube can be equipped with a QuadraMate Vacuum Table to hold large sheet material up to 24" x 36". Aside from the large machining area, the specifications for the MLCube are similar to the M8Cube.
