Bantam Tools Announces New Desktop CNC Milling Machine

A Desktop CNC Machine That Makes Aluminum Parts Fast and Easy

PEEKSKILL, N.Y., July 7, 2020 — 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.

Bantam Tools produces hardware and software to help designers and engineers explore the frontier of digital fabrication. The Bantam Tools Desktop PCB Milling Machine, the company's first product, is relied on in more than 150 university labs and makerspaces around the world, including MIT, NYU, and Stanford, as well as companies and organizations such as Adafruit, Supplyframe DesignLab, and all branches of the US military.
