Acrylic milling using a CNC machining center made in Germany by DATRON AG

Acrylic Milling


Arylic milling with DATRON high speed milling machines and DATRON Acrylic Milling Tools delivers superior results, high quility surface and edge finishes and reduced cycle times ... without the added cost of diamond coated polishing tools.These are employed in a ride range of industries specifically for the purpose of machining and engraving acrylic or Plexiglas. This includes acrylic front panels, signage, instrument / control panels, microfluidics, and more. The DATRON M8Cube is one of our machines that can be configured specifically for plastic machining applications so that slugs, chips or dust resulting from milling are extracted and collected. Here are some of the added features in this configuration:

Acrylic Milling Machines Centers:
While all DATRON milling machines are designed for precise acrylic milling, there are some differentiators that may help you to narrow your search. The M8Cube offers an ample 40" x 32" work area for milling acrylic sheet material. Using our PerfectCut filter this machine will produce even higher quality surfaces ... in less time!

For milling acrylic parts that require the highest quality surface finish, the M10 Pro is best suited. This is our fastest and most precise CNC machining center. It features a 41" x 35" bed. Its solid granite machining table adds rigidity and accuracy. HSK-25E tool holders yield less than 3 micron runout. All of this adds up to mirror-like surface finishes.

Now, if an extremely large work area is required, as is the case when milling large acrylic sheet material, the MLCube features a 60" x 40" work area. Due to features like automatic tool change, batch machining can be run unattended or during lights-out production as a means of cost reduction
