Other Machine Co. is now Bantam Tools and the popular Othermill Pro machine is now the Bantam Tools PPBC Milling Machine. It has new features such as dust collection and save preferences, and it is being marketed to bigger businesses instead of hobbyists. “The company’s machine is capable of milling the etched tracks of printed circuit boards in minutes, which means people who want to prototype a electronic gadget can slash their product development cycle by weeks.” 3D printing is still advancing, and has the potential to increase efficiency for manufacturers even more in the future.
