Despite its small size, the Elara Milling Machine has incredible strength and precision. Using it’s advanced system of servo motors, ball-screw railings and robust capacity the Elara can machine the smallest gears with meticulous accuracy while having the power to cut down entire stainless steel cases.
Combined with the Elara Lathe, the watchmaker has the tools necessary to create unique one-of-a-kind timepieces or restore high-end or hard-to-get parts. The Elara is trusted by some of the world’s greatest artisans to create incredible, unique timepieces – find out if the Elara is the right fit for you at nscnc.com
The machine is produced in basic 3 and 4 axis configurations. But in each of the configurations, modifications can be made or additional components added, such as a second spindle or special workpiece or tool holders.
Traditional 3 axis CNC machine configuration. Simple and easy setup for milling flat parts. The spindle moves along 3 axis and the workpiece is mounted directly onto the X carriage. The direct clamping helps with stability and minimizes vibrations.
4 axis rotary table configuration with an additional tailstock. This configuration is perfect for milling large and heavy pieces which require additional support. The tailstock helps with stabilizing and minimizing vibrations when working with a large workpiece.
All pictures, descriptions and specifications shown are for illustration purpose only. Actual product may vary due to product enhancement.
The Rotary Head has a centered chuck with ER-25 collets. The standard ER collet is the most widely used clamping system in the world. ER collets have a wide clamping range and high accuracy. This feature allows you to maintain a perfectly centered workpiece on round shafts ranging from 2.0 to 15.8mm in diameter.
Additionally, the Rotary Head has an optical position sensor, which you can use to set the desired angle on your workpiece and return back to it at any time. In addition, the tailstock allows you to support the workpiece without letting it vibrate.
NSK Nakanishi spindle is installed on all NS CNC mills. It is a world famous brand of mini machine spindles. The spindle has a long service life and is very reliable.
The spindle has motor speed feedback, digital display controlling, and monitoring. The maximum motor speed of 60,000 RPM is realized by using a high-performance brushless motor and ceramic bearings.
An air-cooled motor uses a small volume of air (1.0 CFM) to minimize heat buildup and allow continuous operation. Air pressure required is 75 PSI.
The user has the option to select the type of manual tool change:
In addition, it is possible to install an automatic tool change (ATC) system on the machine.
The spindle collet set has a standard diameter of 1/8″ (3.175 mm). If you need another collet sizes, we can provide you a collet of any size from 1.0 mm to 6.5 mm in increments of 0.1 mm Read more about collets

Elara Milling Machine is widely used in the watchmaking industry for the manufacturing of custom timepieces and machining of movement parts for repairing and restoring watches.
The heavy-duty base and carriages allow the Elara to machine not only soft metals such as brass and gold but harder materials like titanium and stainless steel.
The Elara can perform both, traditional 3-axis milling with a fixed work-piece directly attached to the X-table and the more complex 4-axis auto-flip with an additional rotary head.
In addition to the milling machine, NSCNC also produces a turning variation of the Elara. This mini-lathe can be be equipped with various cutters and watchmaking collets which allow it to process a work-piece from different angles.
This turning variation of the Elara combines the traditional watchmaker’s lathe with the latest CNC systems to allow the operator to push the limits of precision and capability.
