Mini CNC Mill from DATRON features an ample 20" x 20" work area with only a 59" x 59" fottprint

Mini CNC Mill


Compared to the typical conventional VMC DATRON high speed milling machines are indeed mini CNC mills. Large VMCs made for hogging out tons of material take up floor space while offering a comparatively small work area. For intricate machining applications, the DATRON M8Cube offers a large 40”x 32” work area and fits in a small 69”x 69” space. The large work envelope provides flexibility for batch machining or multiple set ups and the small footprint leaves extra shop space to work with. DATRON high speed machining centers can be equipped with the following:

Mini CNC Mills - While all DATRON machines have a substancially smaller footprint than the average VMC, here are a few specific models that you may want to look at: M8Cube, M10 Pro and MLCube (see page bottom for reasons).

Mini CNC Mills:
The M8Cube has a 40” x 32” x 9” work area with 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 enclosures 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.
