Milling Aluminum using DATRON high speed CNC milling machines

Electronic Part Manufacturing

 

What could be better for electronics part R&D and production than a machine designed by an electronics part manufacturer? It’s true, DATRON didn’t start as a machine tool builder. Over 40 years ago, we started as an electronics company and the development of our first high speed CNC milling machine was done out of necessity. We needed a milling machine versatile enough to machine a wide range of materials and accurate enough to produce intricate high tolerance components. Since that time, DATRON milling machines have become the premiere solution for the production of aluminum enclosures and housings, heat sinks, front panels, membrane switches, adapters, connectors, sockets, wave solder pallets as well as PCB rework and trace cutting and micro hole drilling. Here are some of the unique features that have made DATRON the preferred solution for electronics part manufacturing:

Milling Machines for Electronics Part Manufacturing:
The M8Cube is an ideal machine for electronics part manufacturing 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 nesting a production 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.
