In Their Own Words

DATRON high speed machining center testimonials

“Currently, we’re making some special lightbulb parts on the DATRON neo that we were making on our Haas Super Mini Mills − and by using the vacuum chuck to hold sheet material on the neo, we’re able to batch machine these parts which has reduced cycle time by nearly 50%.”

— Paul Strippelhoff, Vice President, Carbide Products, Inc.


“Obviously, in terms of spindle speed, they’re higher than what most people are putting out there. Haas doesn’t offer anything higher than 15,000 RPM and other machines of this size aren’t running the kind of spindle speeds that DATRON is running. On top of that, the accuracy that DATRON has is really outstanding. You know, I check everything on the CMM, and I’ve posted videos showing us checking the roundness of parts that have come out of the DATRON and we’re at roughly 4 microns."

— Tim Allard, President, RapidDTM, Inc.


“How would I describe my DATRON? It would be hard to describe the DATRON in a few words but a few come to mind Awesome, Incredible, Cash Cow or maybe simply Love. The DATRON by far has been the greatest addition to our business. In the field of Pharmaceutical Development accuracy and cleanness are the utmost priorities. With the ethanol-mist cooling system our parts come out sterile without contamination from ordinary coolants and the accuracy and precision eliminates all hand work. So, I think my best description would be that I LOVE my DATRON.”

— William Arnold, President, Kansas City Design

“If I have a question, I know that with a single call I can speak to their president. Plus, DATRON offers ongoing instruction like DATRON University that I’ve personally attended and that kind of training allows us to offer a superior service to our customers.”

— Diane Haensel, CEO, Front Panel Express


“We here at MTM Recognition, Inc. have many DATRON machines in service that drastically increase our production output and help us to reach our goals. Our mission statement is” Making Meaningful Experiences Memorable” and with all the help from DATRON this is attainable.”

— Rick Arduine, Director of Tool & Die, MTM Recognition, Inc.


“After purchasing the DATRON machines, our productivity increased by 60% and jobs that used to take a week to complete were finished in two days! Most importantly, DATRON equipment has been pivotal in allowing us to expand the scope of the jobs we pursue.”

— Trevor Welson, Owner, IntelliCAM Custom Products


“I just realized I’ve been using my Datron machine for over a year now, and I can’t recall a single instance where the machine was down or impeding my production this whole time. We’ve run more than 450 dental abutments through the machine which is over $100,000 worth of parts in about 6 months! And I STILL haven’t purchased any additional tooling after the initial $3,000 order I placed in January for abutment milling.”

— Jim Rabbia, Plant Manager, Remington Arms Company, Inc.


“Before DATRON, we were outsourcing our CNC work. One part cost us $8.00 and the vendor made 10 pieces per hour. Then, I saw DATRON at a trade show demonstrating how their technology can cut your machining time down. Man did it ever! Our DATRON makes 60 parts per hour, can run unattended at night and only takes 5 minutes to change for the next batch. That part price has dropped to fifty cents ... a $7.50 savings ($37,500 savings per year). It takes less than 100 hours a year to make that part leaving 1,900 hours a year free to use it to make other parts we need.”

— Jerry Zagury, Dental Laboratory Group
