Bantam Tools turnkey solution aims to give users a shortcut to CNC machining, and help figure out the part milling processes for in-house aluminium prototypes.
This CNC service should give designers, engineers, and entrepreneurs a proven process to turn designs into physical parts.
Bantam Tools said its engineers will develop a process for machining parts using its desktop CNC milling machine, to then provide the know-how directly to customers, so they can then make those parts on their own.
“Our engineers build a bridge to help designers and engineers learn how to machine parts on our Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine with confidence,” said Bantam Tools general manager Ron Lorentzen.
“This helps parts survive the journey across the challenges and chasms of DFM, CAM, filtering, speeds and feeds and tooling,” he went on.
Bantam Tools said its new turnkey solution is set up to give designers, engineers and companies a shortcut for figuring out a process to mill on a CNC machine.
Depending on the parts a client needs, Bantam Tools should be able to deliver items such as work instructions, Fusion 360 files with vetted CAD models and CAM toolpaths, .BTP files that save the job setup in the Bantam Tools software, G-code files exported from the Fusion 360 file, custom fixturing (either designs or fabricated), as well as finished parts.
“We’ve had customers get really excited about the Bantam Tools turnkey solutions,” said Lorentzen.
“There are a lot of companies out there who are needing to bring prototyping in-house and they need aluminium parts, but aren’t quite sure how to go about designing for and using a CNC milling machine. We can help remove those pain points and give customers the know-how to succeed.”
