DATRON exhibit at WESTEC will be site of unveiling.

DATRON Dynamics plans to demonstrate the M8Cube high-speed machining center for the first time on the West Coast Oct. 15-17, 2013, duing WESTEC at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The M8Cube is DATRON's newest model and represents the company's latest advancements in high-speed machining technology. This includes brushless, direct drives that provide fast acceleration, feed rates up to 866 inches per minute and short cycle times. A 3kW, 40,000 RPM, liquid-chilled spindle delivers horsepower for heavier machining, as well as the flexibility to mill a range of materials. HSK-E 25 tool holders offer precision and <1 micron run out. DATRON has positioned this model for precision, high or low volume production of electronic, aerospace and medical parts, as well as industrial engraving and micro-drilling applications.

According to the company Vice President Robert Murphy: "It's been a number of years since we've exhibited at WESTEC, but with the almost simultaneous opening of our new West Coast Technology Center and the launch of the M8Cube, we decided that WESTEC is the ideal venue to make these introductions."

DATRON Dynamics opened the new Technology Center in Livermore, Calif., in July 2013 and will house this M8Cube as a demonstration machine following WESTEC. The facility showcases other machine models and allows the company to demonstrate the advanced capabilities of this equipment by milling "benchmark" parts for prospective customers.

DATRON will also demonstrate the D5 Dental Mill by milling titanium implant bars and abutments at the show. This machine was first introduced in 2010 with critical acclaim including a RedDot Design Award for Best Industrial Design. The compact five-axis machine was designed specifically for dental milling applications such as complex titanium implant bars, as well as custom abutments, crowns and bridges made from a variety of dental materials--from titanium to zirconium.

The D5 is controlled by an Apple iPad, and fits through a standard 36 inch door.
