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.
One DATRON Application Project Manager 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.
The 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, Sales & Marketing 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.
