Datron Dynamics Inc. has announced the release of the M10
Pro, the next generation in their line of German-engineered high speed
machining centers that includes significant advancements in their machining
technology. Specifically, the M10 Pro features linear scales on all axes driven
by larger motors and drives yielding a +/-5 micron position accuracy and rapids
up to 30 meters per minute. The addition of linear scales led to the
development of a newly designed high-speed CNC control for three to six axes. The
M10 Pro has a direct-drive, liquid-chilled, 40,000 RPM spindle using HSK-25E
tool holders with <1 micron run-out.
With a gantry construction the M10 Pro has a maximized work
area of 40 x 28 in., while only using a floor space footprint of 79 x 83 in..
Added functionality like palletized work-holding and advanced probing is
available for manufacturers looking to reduce set-up time and increase part
quality and uniformity. The M10 Pro is positioned for applications requiring
high accuracy and spindle speed, such as medical part prototyping and
