DATRON neo Applications

 

 

ENGRAVING BRASS Design Model

TURN YOUR IDEAS INTO REALITY

DATRON neo produces mirror-like edge finishes and detailed engraving … even on rounded surfaces!“

The machining of non-ferrous metals is one of the key strengths of the DATRON neo. After the workpiece has been machined from solid stock, DATRON neo produces free-form structures with a consistent surface finish. Using small tools, the 3-axis milling machine produces even the most intricate engraving details with superb quality.

DATRON neo equipped with a jaw chuck shows its dynamic capability with this complex design model of a brass wrist watch (below):

  • Precision machining of brass
  • Intricate surface geometries
  • Realistic representation of the design idea
