Electronics part machining for heat sinks, housings, enclosures, test fixtures, adapters, connectors, PCB and thermal management using Datron high speed CNC machining centers


Engraving steel roll dies and stamps is an intricate application that benefits from the precision of DATRON high-speed milling machines. Roll die production requires the ability to mill or engrave on very small curved surfaces. So, DATRON's integrated probing system (surface measurement) allows for precise, even-depth engraving on rounded or curved surfaces. DATRON also offers 4- and 5-Axis capability and integrated workholding, as well as custom fixturing solutions as required.


Here are some of the unique features that have made DATRON the preferred solution for roll die production:

Milling Machines for Roll Die Production:
While all DATRON milling machines are designed for roll die production, there are some differentiators that may help you to narrow your search. The M8Cube offers an ample 40" x 32" work area for milling batches of roll dies. Using our PerfectCut filter this machine will produce molds with exceptional surface finish.

For added speed and precision, the M10Pro 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 1 micron runout. All of this adds up to mirror-like surface finishes.

Now, if an extremely large work area is required, the MLCube features a 60" x 40" work area. This can also benefit manufacturers who wish to batch machine aluminum thermoforming molds (either several of the same mold or a number of different molds). Due to features like automatic tool change, batch machining can be run unattended or during lights-out production as a means of cost reduction.
