Bantam Desktop CNC Machine Mills Aluminum Parts
Easy-to-use CNC machine pairs with intuitive software to enable product designers, educators and engineers to make, prototype and build right out of the box.
Bantam Tools’ Desktop CNC Milling Machine is designed to make the machining of aluminum parts fast and easy. The company says it built the machine from the ground up, pairing it with intuitive software to enable product designers, educators and engineers to make, prototype and build right out of the box.
The Desktop CNC Milling Machine is said to come with software that enables predictable outcomes, including automatic material location, effectively bringing aluminum prototyping to an accessible and affordable level. The Bantam Tools Milling Machine Software also supports a simple drag-and-drop integration with SVG files for 2.5D designs.
According to the company, the Desktop CNC Milling Machine has Fusion 360 integration and toolpath templates that allow CAD designers with limited CAM experience to machine using an “Auto-CAM” solution. This feature helps anyone who has experience with Fusion 360 start milling quickly and easily.
The machine also offers swappable build plates and is easy to maintain and service. It is designed to give those who prototype the ability to reliably machine aluminum and other materials at an entry-level price point. The company says the machine is well-suited to explore, teach, learn and prototype.
This attachment provides shops using thee-axis machining centers the option of on-demand four- and five-axis machining.
Advanced mill-turn machines with bar fed material handling can overcome several inherent weaknesses of production machining on vertical machining centers.
The “Pursuit of Perfection” is how Acero Precision defines its mission and while such lofty words make nice copy, all one needs to do is visit this contract manufacturer to experience how serious the company is about the technology, personnel and processes necessary to make it more than an abstract goal.
