Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine

Bantam Tools® is excited to announce its newest machine, the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine, with pre-orders available at bantamtools.com. Making aluminum parts is fast and easy with the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine. 

“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 Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling 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.”

The Bantam Tools 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 that has not been seen in this category. Bantam Tools Milling Machine Software also supports a simple drag-and-drop integration with SVG files for 2.5D designs.

In addition to its high speed and ease-of-use, the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine has Fusion 360 integration and toolpath templates that allow CAD designers with limited CAM experience to machine parts like a pro 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 Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine offers swappable build plates, is easy to maintain and service, and comes with a one-year warranty and customer support.

“One of the main reasons we decided to make the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine is to close the gap between hobby-grade and professional-grade CNC machines,” says Pettis. “With the new Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling 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 Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine is available for pre-orders at bantamtools.com for the introductory price of $3,599. The machines are expected to begin shipping in six to eight weeks.

  • Makes Aluminum Parts
  • Desktop metal prototyping has never been this accessible for designers, engineers, educators and hobbyists.
  • Fast & Easy
  • Auto Probing: One touch probing routines to automatically adjust for material location and tool length. A feature typically reserved for industrial milling machines.
  • Fusion 360 Integration & Tool Path Templates: Provided CAM templates allow for CAD designers with limited CAM experience to machine parts like a pro using this “Auto-CAM” solution.
  • Quick Setup for 2.5D Designs: G-code integration is standard. Import SVG files and automatic 2D toolpaths are generated natively in the Bantam Tools Milling Machine Software. Great for graphic designers or beginners!
  • Real Time Visualization: Software provides a 3D real time view of your design to give you the confidence you need before you begin milling.
  • Fully Enclosed: Full machine enclosure, safety interlocks and dedicated e-stop button provide the security you need to mill in a classroom, workshop or lab.
  • Supports machining Aluminum, Brass, Steel, Cooper, Wood, Linoleum, Engineering Plastics, Machining Wax

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways.
