||Industrial Stainless Steel Engraving CNC for Engraving with Small Tools.
If you're having a hard time engraving stainless steel with small tools, that's because it's hard material ... and it's tough on fragile tools. Plus, small tools have minimal surface area. So, it’s difficult for the heat generated by engraving or milling stainless steel to be dissipated and it tends to concentrate at the cutting edge of the tool. Heat transferred to the chips resulting from milling or engraving stainless steel exacerbates this situation (if they are not effectively evacuated from the cutting channel).
Ultimately, the attributes that make Datron milling ans engraving machines ideal for other applications requiring efficiency with small tools are the same things that make them ideal for the industrial engraving of stainless steel. For example, our Spray-Mist Coolant System is bi-directional, so it is capable of rapidly switching sides and automatically directing the spray at the tool edge doing the cutting. For stainless steel we employ an oil-based coolant in this spray-mist system. Also, our line of micro tooling is optimized for efficiency. The sharpness of engraving tools is critical to the quality of the cut since dull tools can cause glazing and the hardening of the stainless steel surface. The overall speed of our 40,000 - 60,000 RPM spindles allow the operator to make light cuts, but ones that are substantial enough to prevent the tool from riding the surface of the stainless steel a condition that also contributes to the hardening of the surface in stainless steel applications.

In Their Own Words (Customers Speak Out):
Since purchasing the Datron milling and engraving system, our productivity at Sign Systems has increased by 60%. Jobs that used to take our team a week to complete are now finished by Tuesday evening! Not only has this machine helped us to increase our productivity, it has been pivotal in allowing us to expand the scope of jobs that we pursue. Due to its exceptional functionality and ease of operation, the Datron allows me to take on the most challenging jobs with ease. It has added years back on to my life!

I am writing this letter as a follow-up to our purchase of a M5 to let you know how satisfied we are with our Datron machine.
When we are ready to order another milling machine, Datron will receive another order. All contacts at your company are extremely helpful in all aspects of this business. I have always enjoyed your technical expertise when it comes to running the Datron. Many times we operate the Datron around the clock when it comes to the intricate work that we require for our moulds. Anytime you would like to refer someone who maybe interested in purchasing a Datron to me, or, if you would like to bring someone out for demonstration, please do so. Let me know of anything that I can do to help you as you have done so much for me. Thank you!

Firearms Manufacturers Add Probing:
While many 3D engraving applications benifit from our probing capability, firearms manufacturers need it to c ontrol the depth of their engraving ... especially on rounded surfaces like barrels and receivers. Probing saves time during job setup and ensures accuracy and repeatability. Probes available as an integrated component on our stainless steel engravers and routers can recognize irregular work-piece topography and compensate for it dynamically. They do this by taking measurements along the surface of a blank and feeding that data into the machining controller. The controller automatically adjusts for uneven surfaces or work piece position. Through this process, job setup times are reduced and piece/part rejection is minimized. With a 3D extension, the probe locates parts and material irregularities in the X, Y, and Z co-ordinates, finds centers of holes and bosses, pre-measures blanks before the machining starts, compensates for material variations, feeds data into ISO 9000 information chain for quality control, and even allows for the reverse engineering of many parts.
