Feeling cute. Might mill something later.

Just came out of a long term relationship and looking for love. Concrete morals, love to workout (spin class is my favorite), and super reliable. Willing to meet at the DATRON Tech Center for a coffee. If interested, call 888.262.2833.

Tech Tidbit - Multiple Execution

Multiple execution can be used for batch machining parts on a vacuum table, or for having several parts in a fixture, or multiple vises. This is ideal for a job shop, where multiple small-to-medium parts are needed. https://bit.ly/2Sn8Km8

If you’re struggling with micro drills, it might be time to upgrade your hardware. High precision tool holders like the Schunk Tribos system, along with high-RPM HSK spindles, can make a world of difference when working with micro drills and end mills. https://bit.ly/2tLypeZ

When running a job with thousands of similar sized holes, drilling is clearly the method for you. However, for a wide variety of holes, and some extra tool change capacity, bore milling might be the better option. Learn more about milling vs. drilling: https://bit.ly/2OKpz8t

ToolAssist has other key benefits besides an enormous tool changer! The ability to load tools while a program is running lends great flexibility for short-run, high-mix jobs. Also, since it's mounted externally, it has greater protection from contaminants. http://bit.ly/3bdZRml

We are pleased to announce that ToolAssist is now available for all Cube series machines! With capacity for up to 143 tools, ToolAssist is perfect for the most demanding production manufacturing jobs. http://bit.ly/3bdZRml
