THE LEADER IN SMALL CNC MILLING MACHINES

The Tormach PCNC 1100 personal CNC mill is a new approach in CNC milling machines – a small CNC mill designed for real work with the power to cut serious materials. Milling circuit boards, aluminum, and engineering polymers are a breeze when your CNC milling machine is built to cut materials like steel, iron, stainless, and titanium.

PCNC 1100 personal CNC mills were engineered from the ground up to be the best value in small CNC milling machines. The Tormach PCNC 1100 personal CNC mill was thoughtfully designed with a combination of quality components and proven technology to create an affordable small CNC milling machine that provides unprecedented value in CNC mills.

GREAT PERFORMANCE EXPECTATIONS

The machine is capable of cutting most materials at or near their recommended feeds and speeds. For example, for fast metal removal on 6061 aluminum we will run a 1/2” diameter 2 flute cutter at around 18 IPM (inches per minute) and 3000 RPM, using a full 1/2” depth of cut. That’s a pretty good volumetric rate of metal removal so it’s essential to clear chips with a flood coolant. We will run smaller cutters when we’re not trying to remove large amounts in a hurry. For most aluminum work we use 3/8”. The example above, using a 1/2” cutter, results in a surface speed of 390 SFM (surface feed per minute). A 3/8” cutter needs 4000 RPM to get the same surface speed, well within the performance envelope of the machine.

WE OFFER LOTS OF OPTIONS

When it comes to customizing your PCNC mill Tormach leads the way in available options. Build the perfect cnc machine for your particular need with a wide array of PCNC mill upgrades and add-ons. From enclosures to ATC’s and Power Drawbars, get the options you need for your shop.

Key Features of the PCNC 1100

  • 5140RPM 1.5HP R8 Spindle with Sensorless Vector Control and exclusive foldback logic.
  • Single Phase 230 VAC 50/60 Hz Primary Power Requirement
  • 1400lbs. (Typical system weight with stand)
  • Optional Stand available
  • Polyphase Axis Motion Technology powered by Leadshine®

designed and built to last

Each PCNC 1100 CNC mill has over half a ton of cast iron and steel that is precisely placed to achieve maximum frame rigidity in a footprint that’s about the size of a traditional manual milling machine.

The sliding dovetailed ways are hand-scraped and designed to withstand high loads and dampen vibrations. The ways have bonded PTFE filled acetyl sliding surfaces, hand scraped by skilled machine builders. Similar to brand name compounds such as Turcite® or Rulon®, PTFE compounds provide low friction and long life.

Each PCNC 1100 small CNC mill features an R8 spindle with a 3 3/8″ nose diameter – the same standard dimension as popular Bridgeport -style manual mills. This can be used in combination with the innovative quick-change Tormach Tooling System® (TTS) or any generic R8 tooling.
