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 from start to finish by ensuring you can effortlessly set up jobs in minutes and reducing or eliminating secondary operations.
“Running multiple parts on a sheet was completely new to us. This gives you the ability to keep the number of tool changes down over a 200-piece run. Reducing the tool changes has a huge impact on cycle time, and is a big difference between the DATRON and our VMC’s.”
