Small Footprint – Big Precision!

Datum Machines is a family business based in Lower Hutt, New Zealand. Moving into our Factory and starting production in mid-2023. We are a small team and we have big plans. We design and we make CNC Machines. Our machines are made to the highest standards and with attention to detail. They are precision made to be a precision machine. Hundred of hours have gone into proving the design and testing the theory behind the interplay of each element. Every part we make has been machined for accuracy and tested for fit.

The design and build of the steel machine stand, the solid construction of the cutting table, the build of the gantry, the raw materials for these have been selected for their performance, strength and durability. The many components parts, The linear rails and the ball screws, the spindle and the VFD’s, the pneumatics. Every part from each supplier has been selected for their quality build, reliability and accurate movment.

The end result is CNC machines, precision engineered, designed and built from the ground up. Cutting edge precision to give our customers accuracy and reliability no matter the task.
