Announcing the DATRON neo V2

Milford, NH, November 4, 2019 – DATRON Dynamics, Inc. announced the availability of its neo V2, the second version of its industry disrupting DATRON neo compact milling machine. Since its introduction into the North American market in July of 2016, machinists in the aerospace, government, technology, and jewelry industries have lauded how this affordable-yet-powerful machine improves workflow and increases productivity. For the second iteration, DATRON added several upgrades to their powerful yet affordable neo machine to further refine the machine to allow even novice cnc mill users to create precision models, prototypes, and three-dimensional metal parts without leaving the workplace.

DATRON Application Project Manager Dann Demazure notes, “With the introduction of the Series 2 neo, DATRON has refined an already potent machine to push it to the next level. By improving the control performance with a lightning-fast PC, process reliability with a new spindle cooler, and setup accuracy with a Renishaw TP-20 probe, the neo V2 is further honed for serious industrial productivity.”

The neo’s single core CPU has been upgraded to a dual core CPU with twice the RAM resulting in faster program loading, simulation rendering, and startup, while eliminating control lag. Also, the Neo V2 also features an upgraded Renishaw TP-20 probe which increases machine accuracy and is available in wide variety of stylus sizes.
TheDATRON neo V2 full machine probe also features a magnetic breakaway for crash avoidance. The intuitive touch screen operation terminal featuring DATRON’s next software has been upgraded as well.  A support has also been added to prevent remote dropping due to accidental contact. Flow monitoring was yet another option added to the second version neo. As a result of this feature, machine spindles will be unable to run when they are without proper cooling – resulting in increased reliability. Lastly, all V2 DATRON neo cnc mills will be pre-wired for coolant level and vacuum level monitoring. Although additional options, vacuum and coolant level monitoring are particularly suitable for high-production customers.

Ideal for rapid tooling, design communication, and short-run manufacturing, the DATRON neo V2 is capable of milling a variety of materials up to 20” x 16.5” x 9” in size with its robust 40,000 RPM spindle and 24 station automatic tool changer. The Red Dot Award winning cnc milling machine was designed from the ground up to deliver a productive, in-office machining solution that improves and accelerates workflow, through a simple and clean operation that virtually eliminates post-processing.

DATRON VP, Business Development Bob Murphy observes that although spindle speed matters, a shortened workflow can be just as important. “Companies are no longer just purchase machines. They’re purchasing a process and workflow to help them be more competitive and keep costs low. The value stream and workflow need to be automated and seamlessly connected. The overall success of the neo V2 goes far beyond the impressive cycle times while milling,” says Murphy.


High-Speed CNC machining is more than 60,000 RPM spindle-speed. When you’re making small or complex parts, you need speed and precision at every stage. DATRON AG engineers didn’t just invent a faster, more precise CNC machine. They re-interpreted and optimized your entire machining workflow from start to finish.

Micromachining is more than just high RPM. Before cutting understand your material, coolant type, tooling, and more before little details become big problems. Learn more about the sometimes incredibly frustrating adventure that is micromachining here:

Some things can be bought sight unseen...a CNC mill isn't typically one of them. There are ton of options when looking for industrial milling equipment, but which matters most to you? A big work area? The best accuracy? The easiest to use controller?

On this weeks Tooling Tuesday we're featuring the Single Flute End Mill. This tool features a large chip channel that evacuates materials quickly while being able to move at a very high feed rate (315 inch/min). Learn more

For the past several decades, aerospace and defense manufacturers like Northrop Grumman and Flight Safety International have relied on the accuracy of DATRON machines to produce cockpit control panels, support frames, seating components & more. Learn why:

Current industry trends show more companies are determined to bring prototyping in-house to optimize workflows and protect IP. Learn why it may be time to invest in bringing prototyping in-house with our new eBook 'Making Things' created with @autodesk.

“This stuff might fall into the “no quote” pile for a lot of shops because it’s complex, it’s all 3D work, tight tolerances, low quantities, stuff that most people don’t want to touch” - Tim Allard, Rapid DTM.
