Automotive Machining


From less visible details like the dashboard perferations for airbag deployment to more obvious automotive parts like brand identification, DATRON high-speed milling machines are instrumental in the automotive industry. That's because they are so versatile and excel in machining and engraving materials like stainless steel, aluminum, plastics and composites. Revolutionary DATRON next software offers easy programming and reduced job setuup time. Large work envelopes with comparatively small footprints make DATRON a logical choice for both automotive manufacturers and Job Shops who produce parts for them. Here are some of the options that make DATRON a great choice:

Milling Machines for Automotive Applications:
The DATRON neo is our entry-level machine only in that it is smaller and less expensive. The capabilities are equally robust and it features the revolutionary DATRON next touch-screen interface and makes machining as easy as using a smart phone. So, if 19.5" x 15.5" is enough work area for you this machine could be perfect!

The M8Cube is an ideal machine for batch machining and the 40” x 32” x 9” work area has ample room for various workholding setups like pneumatic clamps, and vacuum tables. 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.

Now, if an extremely large work area is required, as is the case for milling large workpieces 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.
