Most milling machines come in two basic categories – expensive and big with high production capabilities or small, kit type units that are cheap in price and often cheap in their quality as well as limited in their capacity and productivity. Large corporations that handle massive amounts of milling machine work usually spend a few hundred thousand dollars and get huge production units that can crank out a hundreds of parts a day. Of course these types of CNC milling machines take up a lot of space and moving them from one location to another is a logistical nightmare.
For smaller companies spewing out high volumes of items isn’t required although a health number of products are still desired. The challenge is finding a milling machine that can accommodate limited space and yet still be able to handle diverse product specification and at the same time put out decent production numbers. For the most part, desktop CNC milling machines, running between two to five thousand dollars, just aren’t capable. They either have limited milling abilities and/or are up to the rigors of producing more than a few items a day.
Happily there is a company that has put in the time and effort to create the perfect balance between high-end, large production milling machines and the small, limited kit style of desktop CNC milling machine. Advance Control Tech has spent 5 years in the design, development and manufacturing of their desktop CNC milling machine. The DMC-III is the next generation of desktop CNC milling machine that combines the versatility and robust production abilities of its larger cousins while only weighing 200 lbs. This unique compact router offers a solidly built unit that has been tested to be a rugged workhorse but can still perform very intricate and delicate milling work for advanced prototypes, fine part making, artistic renderings or other items that may require pin point accuracy with near perfect repeatability. And best of all it is priced under $9,000.
