Accessories To Help You Customize Your Datron to Your Unique Needs

You’re Often Faced with Bottlenecks in Your Production Process

Often, these can be costly, and attributed to set-up times and how a part is secured to your machine. In order to eliminate these bottlenecks, optimize your workflow, and reduce costs, you need to look closely at your entire process.

Datron machine accessories can help you:

  • Reduce part rejection by precisely compensating for irregularities with the Datron X,Y,Z probes
  • Speed up part turn-over at the touch of a button with pneumatic clamping systems
  • Quickly and easily secure larger sheet material with vacuum tables
  • Machine multi-sided parts with the Datron rotary axis

Build and customize the Datron system that best suits your needs with our team of application engineers.

DATRON Machine Accessories for Your Success!

High-Speed Spindles
40,000 to 60,000 RPM. DATRON offers high-frequency (HF) spindles in several power categories for speeds ranging from 5,000 – 60,000 rpm. These spindles run smoothly, deliver highly accurate results, and can be used for a wide range of applications.
Integrated Probing
Improves quality and reduces set-up time. Datron probes recognize irregular work-piece topography and compensates for it dynamically. This is done by taking measurements along the surface of a blank and feeding that data into the machining controller. The controller automatically adjusts for uneven surfaces or work piece position. Through this process, job setup times are reduced, and part rejection is minimized.
Vacuum Table (Chuck)
Quickly secure sheet material and flat stock. DATRON vacuum tables are designed to swiftly and efficiently secure flat workpieces to the bed of a machining system. Thin stock, which could be secured only with great difficulties before, is now secured literally within seconds. Up to 24″ x 36″ of vacuum workholding!
Automatic Tool Changer
DATRON has both rotary and rack-style tool changers depending on machine model. Based on spindle selection direct-shank and HSK tool holding systems are available. Included with the tool change unit is a tool length sensor. This is used to measure the length or offset of each tool in the magazine and the data is stored in the control software.
Spray-mist Coolant System
Evaporative micro-volume coolant leaves clean parts with no degreasing. DATRON’s unique spray-mist coolant system is differentiated by its extremely low (30 ml/h) coolant consumption. Using small amounts of coolant, operational and consumable costs are substantially lowered. The spray-mist coolant system minimizes the time consuming and expensive maintenance issues associated with flood-type coolant systems. It is a highly effective method of cooling and can eliminate degreasing and disposal costs.
Control Software
Including the revolutionary DATRON next touch-screen control. DATRON next is an impressive a control system with surface optics that compare to the newest smartphone technology — clearly laid out tiled optics, self-explanatory icons with intuitive control logic, clearly illustrated tools in 3D optics. Simply swiping the colored touchscreen activates an integrated camera within seconds. This camera in combination with a 3D probe, helps to significantly reduce workpiece setup times and operator error.
Rotary Axes
Adding 4th and 5th axis capability. High quality parts can be machined with precision on multiple sides with DATRON rotary axes. Small electrodes, engraving on rounded or cylindrical workpieces, dental and medical parts and intricate molds are typical applications. All DATRON rotary axes are delivered with integrated servo-positioning units and additional software. They can also be installed on previously purchased DATRON machines.
Chip/Dust Management
Extraction and collection systems for dust and debris. With the DATRON CleanCut System, chips or slugs can be removed very efficiently. Nearly chip-free working is possible due toto this vacuum technology developed especially for machining sheet material and flat stock. Other systems are available such as the Graphite Vortex and a brush head that fits around the spindle to keep dust and debris isolated for removal.
Pneumatic Clamping
Short-stroke clamping system with one-hand operation. This proprietary workholding technology from DATRON features pneumatic, short-stroke clamps that minimize setup times for redundant processes. The user-friendly, one-button operation allows the user to open and close the clamp with one hand while the free hand sets the workpiece.
Automation Systems
DATRON machines easily accommodate automation systems providing a turn-key solution for your application. Automation Systems Robotic (FANUC) arms, pallet changers, and pick & place systems. A variety of automation systems, both DATRON branded and 3rd party, can be integrated onto a DATRON machine to provide a custom turn-key solution to meet your needs.
Camera/Vision System
Recognizes fiducials and registration (crop) marks. The optional integrated vision system has many different functions for various applications. Developed originally for the printed circuit board industry, the camera has the ability to automatically recognize a fiducial or crop mark on a part or panel and lock in on the center points.
