Housing Frontpanel

Sheet-material machining for the production of front panels, housings, profiles and other workpieces milled in optimum utilization processes has to be cost-efficient, burr- and residue-free. The issue here is not only an adequate traverse path of the milling machine, but also the choices of different clamping techniques with short setup times available, low energy consumption and a convincing price/performance ratio.

With the DATRON M8Cube, you get all these benefits and also the ability to machine aluminium, non-ferrous metals or composite materials in an extremely efficient manner yourself. Even at low volumes, your production achieves long-term, extremely high efficiency.

Technologies used

DATRON PerfectCut –
Surface smoothing package

Fast, precise and contour accurate HSC milling for excellent surface quality

Lubrication/Cooling system: Minimum quantity lubrication

Due to the almost complete evaporation of the coolant (ethanol), no workpiece cleaning is necessary.
