DATRON neo

The Only High Performance, Out-Of-The-Box CNC System That Fits Through a Standard Door

Rapid Prototyping In-House Is Not A Pipedream

For many businesses, prototyping and part making seems out of reach because they have traditionally required specialized expertise, bulky and costly equipment, or both. Once you factor in the time and cost for training machinists, space for large equipment, and maintenance needs, you’re looking at a significant investment. Most companies end up out-sourcing or just skipping it altogether – even though they know that companies making their own prototypes or doing short-run production in-house have a distinct advantage over those who can’t. And that’s why DATRON created the neo.

If You Can Tap and Swipe, You’re 90% of the Way There

The DATRON neo was specifically designed and built to provide easy and affordable entry to high-speed milling. This Plug-and-Play system features the new DATRON next software, which gives you full control of 3-axis milling without requiring years of experience as a machinist. The ergonomic, frontal access to the work area allows for quick and safe setup of workpieces, while the touchscreen control pad lets you tap and swipe your way to fast and precise machining. All of this, and the DATRON neo actually fits through a standard door!


“There’s a film on the back of polycarbonate or lexan, and we can regularly machine completely through the 1/4 inch lexan and machine partway through the backside film. Absolutely awesome just on the capability, and the rigidity, and the accuracy of these machines.”

Watch the neo in Action

Want to prototype in-house and get to market faster? Imagine the look on your customer’s face when you hand them a finished part—sometimes on the same day they ordered it.

  • Precise thin-walled geometries
  • Uses less energy than a standard hand-held hair dryer.
  • CAM Wizard walks you through 4 easy steps to a finished part.

Eliminate Barriers to High-Quality, Speed, and Value

The DATRON neo provides high dynamics in machining aluminum, especially when a high surface finish is required. In industries with large and small batch production (like the electronics industry), bigger, conventional machines are only cost-effective when cranking out serial production parts in high-volume runs. The neo is an ideal complement to that equipment because it adds the flexibility to machine prototypes or short runs, leaving the larger machines to do what they do best.

  • MILL JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE – Install the neo where you need it. The neo fits through standard office doors and elevators and usually doesn’t need special accommodations.
  • ACHIEVE PICTURE-PERFECT PRECISION – Control the built-in camera with augmented reality and simple fingertip gestures, just like using your smartphone.
  • BEGIN MILLING ALMOST IMMEDIATELY – This small, yet powerful, 3-axis mill features an easy 4 step workflow and practically skips the machining learning curve.
