You don’t have to have a machining shop, the Neo fits through a standard door and can stand in the corner.
The NEXT software and Smart control enable’s all users the ability to operate the machine.
Taking control of the prototyping stage speeds up the overall pre-production process.
Over the decade there was a trend to send out all your prototyping to overseas companies, in the hope to get them done faster and cheaper hence reducing the need for your own capital expenditure on a machine.
In the past decade, it was common for companies to outsource their prototyping to overseas providers in an afford to reduce capital expenditure and obtain faster and more cost effective results. However, over time the lead time, quality, and costs associated with outsourcing have deteriorated, making it economically unviable. There has been a growing trend of UK companies bringing their machining processes back in house. The Datron machine range provides efficient setup, rapid machining and and required precision to regain control.
“Fathomtree’s relationship with Datron has a been a long and fruitful one. About 7 years ago, after much research, we invested in a single M8 (non Cube). This greatly improved, not only our production speed, but also our overall capabilities – it really opened up new manufacturing avenues for us. So much so that, over the years, we have expanded our production facility to now include 8 Datrons (a mixture of M8 Cube, ML Cube and M10 Pro). Each time the machines just get better and better and we are able to throw more and more work at them.”
