DATRON Dynamics


Modernize Your Approach To Complex Part Manufacturing

Simplify and Speed Up Complex Part Making

Machining complex, detailed parts on large, heavy machining centers that were designed to manufacture a wide range of parts can be challenging.

VMCs use large cutting tools and have excessive size and weight that just isn’t needed for smaller tooling. In addition, traditional VMCs require expertise that can be difficult to find and costly to employ. But what if you could make parts faster and easier with a system that was specifically designed for machining complex parts? What if you could reduce your entire part-making workflow exponentially? And what if it was so easy to use, nearly anyone could run it?

Whether you’re looking to bring production in-house or complement your existing heavier VMCs, there’s an easier way to make those more detailed and difficult jobs. The DATRON M8Cube will help you optimize your machining workflow for complex parts by ensuring you can effortlessly set up jobs in minutes and reduce (or even eliminate) secondary operations.

Easy Design & Execution

The machine’s capabilities have blown me away. Before, I would spend hours trying to figure out how the parts we outsourced would be made on a machine. The M8Cube has alleviated many concerns about design features and tackles the features with ease.”

Watch the M8Cube in Action

From large parts to nested smaller parts, the compact DATRON M8Cube is designed and built for complex and precision part machining.

  • Large working area with a compact footprint.
  • Rigid, low-vibration design for excellent surface quality.
  • High-speed precision spindles up to 60,000 RPM.

Are You Machining Complex Parts?

The DATRON M8Cube is a high-performance HSC milling machine that is versatile and extraordinarily efficient for a reasonable price. It features a large 40” x 33” work area with a small 69” x 69” footprint, an ergonomic working environment, and a low operating cost. The M8Cube is the top choice for efficiently machining housings, profiles, and panels made of aluminum and other non-ferrous metals or composites.

  • Machine Parts Faster – Reduce your cycle time on existing parts by 50% or more. It’s not all spindle speed either, your entire workflow will be faster.
  • New Revenue Streams – Make intricate or high tolerance parts that you couldn’t before. Penetrate new markets and introduce new or improved products.
  • Increase Agility – React quicker to changing needs. Say you’re running a part and an urgent job comes in. The M8Cube’s large bed has room for multiple work holding setups, so you can take on the rush job, finish it, and go back to the original one without missing a beat.
