Microsoft Windows based CNC control software for Datron high speed CNC machining centers

CNC Workflow with

 

 

DATRON next is a revolutionary CNC control software that is as easy to use as a Smartphone!

 

 

STEP 1 - SELECT AND LOAD
With the DATRON next program management system, you load the milling program provided by your CAM system via a network or a USB device. The DATRON next program management system visualizes the data of each existing component, allowing you to quickly select and load a component.

 

 

 

 

STEP 2 - FAST TOOL SET-UP

With the DATRON next tool management functionality everything related tools is handled. The system gives you detailed information about the specific tool type, the diameter, the flute length and where the tool is located. The DATRON next filter function allows you to find a specific tool within seconds. The tool management stores all information on DATRON tools, eliminating time-consuming manual tool data entry.

 

 

 

 

STEP 3 - QUICK JOB SETUP WITH CAMERA

The correct setup of the workpiece, including establishing a zero point for orientation in the machining area, is one of the basic requirements for excellent machining results. DATRON next supports your setup by combining finger gestures with an interior camera and a 3D probe. Even without any previous milling experience, you can intuitively set up your workpiece perfectly. In addition, classic, figure-based measurement cycles are available, that are easy to operate using intuitive graphics.

 

 

 

 

STEP 4 - 3D SIMULATION OF THE MILLING PROCESS

By means of the DATRON next simulation, the paths of the milling process can be calculated, taking into account the tools that are already assigned in the machine. Finally, the workpiece is visualized in 3D. You can now preview the entire machining process in the simulation and check in advance whether the desired milling result is achieved. You can zoom, rotate and push the virtual workpiece around with your fingertips at will.

 

 


DATRON CNC control software is easy to use and displayed on a ergonomic vertical display.MILLING IS FOR EVERYONE
DATRON machines can be ordered with an integrated camera/probe combination designed to eliminate the time-consuming task of setting up jobs. The camera shows the machining table below and the operator can select the workpiece simply by tracing the area on the touch-screen where the workpiece is displayed. Once the part is located, and the machining parameters are set, any irregularity is automatically compensated for in the software. This virtually eliminates part rejection due to improper setup. An on-board "CAM Assistant" guides the operator through the program and tool management on an interface that looks and feels like using a smartphone. All of these tools combine to help even a novice operator create a machined part in just four steps.

4 STEPS TO THE FINISHED COMPONENT
The DATRON next CAM Wizard provides ultimate ease of use, because it supports you in all aspects of preparing the milling operation. In just 4 steps, the CAM Wizard takes you through the program and tool management, assists in workpiece set-up and enables workpiece simulation.

 

 

RUN SCREEN: EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL
The run screen (Status) shows all relevant information at a glance. The program’s progress, the calculated time remaining and the machine status are visible even from a distance.
