Bantam Tools’ new desktop CNC milling machine is fast, easy to set up, and comes with software that allows for predictable outcomes, including automatic material location, effectively bringing aluminum prototyping to an accessible and affordable level. Bantam Tools milling machine software also supports a simple drag-and-drop integration with SVG files for 2.5D designs.
“The Bantam Tools desktop CNC milling machine will be the gateway to CNC milling,” says Bre Pettis, CEO of Bantam Tools. “We have built the machine from the ground up, creating an easy-to-use machine that pairs with our intuitive software and can get product designers, educators, and engineers making, prototyping, and building right out of the box.”
In addition to its high speed and ease-of-use, the desktop CNC milling machine has Fusion 360 integration and toolpath templates that allow CAD designers with limited CAM experience to machine parts using an Auto-CAM solution. This feature helps anyone who has experience with Fusion 360 start milling quickly and easily.
Made in the USA at the Bantam Tools Peekskill, New York, factory, the desktop CNC milling machine offers swappable build plates, easy maintenance and service, and a one-year warranty and customer support.
“One of the main reasons we decided to make the desktop CNC milling machine is to close the gap between hobby-grade and professional-grade CNC machines,” Pettis says. “With the new machine, we’re offering product designers, engineers, and educators who prototype the ability to reliably machine aluminum and other materials at an entry level price point. Because this machine is perfectly suited to explore, teach, learn, and prototype, we know it’ll be a welcomed boon to both educators and product designers.”The desktop CNC milling machine is available for pre-orders for the introductory price of $3,599.
