DATRON M8Cube

Your production challenges drive our solutions.

The DATRON M8Cube is a high performance HSC milling machine that is both versatile and extraordinarily efficient at a reasonable expense.

Your production efficiency is the key aspect among many M8Cube advantages you will benefit from:

  • High dynamics through optimized controls with a focus on acceleration and stiffness designed mechanical design.
  • Very high tension power for small tools by using high-speed precision spindles with up to 60,000 1/min and services available from 0.6 kW to 3.0 kW.
  • Rigid, low-vibration design of the machine for excellent surface quality when machining.
  • High accuracy by high value linear guidance, Ball screws, HSK-E 25 tool holder (optional), and precision-crafted structure elements.
  • The M8Cube is one of the latest additions to our wide range of compact high-speed CNC machines for any milling requirement. New controls, new features, ergonomic working environment and low operating cost - let our range of accessories and software features prove the difference.

    • Very large working area while keeping a small footprint
    • Affordably priced with extremely low operating cost
    • Short set-up times
    • You have new opportunities in milling, drilling and engraving. The M8Cube was engineered to process high-tech materials with small tools (Ø 0.1 mm to 20 mm)

    The M8Cube is the top choice for the efficient machining of housings, profiles and panels made of aluminium and other nonferrous metals or cmposites. M8Cube stands for state-of-the-art milling technology "Made in Germany" for your production success.

    HF spindles:

    High frequency spindles with speeds up to 60,000 rpm and high concentricity guarantee high cutting performance and perfect machining results when using small tools.

    Cooling/lubricatingsystem
    Ecologically and economically optimised processes with minimum quantity cooling lubrication and correspondingly increased durability.

    Suction - CleanCut
    Nearly chip-free work by means of highly-effective chip suction. No more time-consuming machine cleaning (optional).

    CNC milling tools
    Due to years of experience and intensive communication with our customers, we develop tools especially designed for high-speed machining.

    Clamping technology
    Whether pneumatic or vacuum clamping technology: DATRON systems feature high flexibility, high comfort of use and short changeover times.

    Measuring technology
    The XYZ sensor guarantees short setup times, increased precision and cost-effectiveness by automatically measuring reference edges and height profile.

    CAM software
    All DATRON machines have DIN/ISO standard-complying interfaces compatible with all common 3D-CAD/CAM programmes such as Mastercam, SolidCAM or Pro/E.

    DATRON Machine software
    “DATRON CNCv9” machine software offers convenient functions for setup, fast CNC programming and import of Grover 3D CNC files.
