Milltronics History

Milltronics has been in business for more than 40 years has over 14,000 machines installed around the world. They were purchased in 2015 by Hurco Companies, Inc. which is publicly traded on the NASDAQ exchange as HURC. Even though they are owned by another company that also makes CNC machines, Milltronics continues to make machines under its own brand name.

Milltronics Controls

Newer used Milltronics CNC machines are equipped with an interactive computer control system that’s compatible with G-code and M-codes generated from CAD/CAM software and conversational visual aid programming. Operators with little or no machine tool programming experience can successfully create programs with minimal training and begin machining parts in little time. More advanced operators appreciate the the following features common on Milltronics CNC controllers:

  • Solid model graphics allows you to see a completed part before cutting. Graphics are intertwined with the motion system so you can see what the machine is going to do.
  • Handwheel run allows you to program in controlled mode – motion only occurs when the handwheel is turning so you can verify programs.
  • Mid-program restarts allow operators to start anywhere in a program by verifying the graphics and then switching to Run Mode without need for G&M code expertise.
  • Milltronics controllers have fast processors and high-speed motion control on newer machines – they can execute up to 3,000 blocks per second.
  • A “Feed Forward” error correctio algorithm reduces inaccuracy which is cause by corner rounding making the machines capable of highly accurate high-speed machining.
  • All controls are PC-based, so they can have color monitors, large hard drives, memory, USB ports, ethernet connectivity and more.

Found a Used Milltronics For Sale? Here’s what you can do before you go see it.

  • Be informed. When you buy a used Milltronics machine, you’re going to need to do more research than when buying a new CNC. Start by making a list of your requirements. You should consider the:
    • Types of materials you want to machine – Are the easy or hard to machine?
    • Tolerances you need – Tight tolerances or not?
    • Industries you’ll primarily be serving – How complex are the parts for this industry?
    • Level of production you’ll be running – High volume light-out? Or short runs?
    • Expertise you have available in your shop – Does anyone know the controls or have time to learn?

You may want to buy a similar CNC to a Milltronics that you already have, or you may want to look for one that is newer, so you can begin to connect everything via ethernet or Wi-Fi to take advantage of software innovations.

  • Ask for good photos. Zoom up in the photos and look for signs of damage and worn components.
  • Speak with a local service provider who can provide service for the machine or call the Milltronics service.
  • Search similar years for the Milltronics CNC to see how pricing compares.
  • Get the hours of operation.
  • Ask for the maintenance records of the specific Milltronics that you are considering. Repair work isn’t a bad thing, in many cases, it will help you know what been replaced, what hasn’t and if it was done right. Ask for as much documentation as the seller can provide. This will help you in case you have problems at later date and provide you with details for buying parts.
  • Find out if any tooling or other accessories are being offered for sale along with this used Milltronics CNC.

How to Inspect a Milltronics CNC

Once you’ve done your homework, and you think you’ve finally identified the perfect Milltronics for your company, you may decide to buy it without looking at it, or you want to go the extra mile an inspect the machine for yourself. If you choose to buy it from CNCMachines.net, we can offer you options on how to ensure that the used CNC equipment you are buying meets your quality standards. Here are some inspection tips below.

How to Inspect a Used Milltronics For Sale On-Site

  • Inspect for damage and worn components. Carefully look all over the machine. There are enough used Milltronics CNC’s available that you shouldn’t have to buy a machine with obvious damage or signs of wear.
  • Ask to operate the machine to see it actually run.
  • Listen to the sounds of the axis moving at different speeds
  • Run the spindle at the max RPM.
  • Look at the guards and sensors on the machine. If sensors, switches, wires and hoses all match and look like they match well, that’s an indication of a well-maintained machine.
  • Make parts on the machine if possible.
  • Check the tool-changer or turret. See how well it changes tools at different areas of the tool changer
  • Check the electrical cabinet for anything that looks like “not factory” and ask about it.
  • *Important* If you are planning on buying this machine, take a photo of the serial number plate. Its typically located on the electrical cabinet door. It has the model, series, serial number, manufacture date, voltage and amp requirements (and more.) The date code on the plate shows the year and week in that year that the machine was built. A three-digit date code is usually found on machines build in the 1990’s while a four digit date code represents machines build after December 31, 1999. (For example: Date code 643 means the machine was built in the 43 week of 1996, date code 0315 means the machine was built in the 15th week of 2003.
  • Ask if the seller can provide the (4) manuals that came with the machine. Each machine should come with an Electrical Manual, Mechanical Manual, Programming Manual and Instruction Manual. If they are not available with the machine, you can request them here.
  • If possible, ask the owner why he’s selling the machine.
  • Find out what process controller is on the machine. For older machines, the processor may have been upgraded.
  • Review bar feeder options for CNC turning centers and pallet changes for mills.
  • Review chip & coolant management options.
  • Find out the electrical requirements for install (look at the Electrical Manual)
  • Discuss payment options, you may get a better deal with a cash down-payment.
  • Buy from someone who has a good reputation.
