DATRON neo | Red Dot Design Award

Back Download

The Datron neo CNC milling machine uses a combination of camera and touchscreen. The software interface with its tile look guides the user through the milling process, similar to a smartphone. The camera function replaces the time-consuming task of entering values for the measurement of the workpiece. Ergonomic operation is achieved by loading the machine from the top and by offering a height- and angle-adjustable control terminal. The coherent design and innovative door concept focus on the milling area and provide an optimal view of the milling procedure inside the machining area.

Statement by the Jury

The Datron neo consistently combines the functions and aesthetics of a smartphone, making it not only intuitive but also fun to use.
