4263 Milling Machine CNC, Tormach PCNC 1100 Series 3
Whether you’re in R&D, education, manufacturing, or simply have a great idea for a product, you need an affordable precision machine to make things happen. The PCNC 1100 Series II offers the serious machining capability, backed by industrial quality, which is so necessary to bring your ideas to life. With unprecedented affordability and value, the open architecture design combines cast iron construction with personal computer technology to address a wide variety of needs. At over 1100 lbs and with a 5000 rpm spindle, this personal CNC machine is fully capable of cutting iron, steel, titanium, and even chromium alloys like 300 or 400 series stainless.
The machine’s design is focused on the needs of prototyping, R&D, and small shop operations. The open design is better suited to combined manual and automatic operations than an enclosed VMC (vertical machining center), yet when combined with the Tormach machine stand you still have good chip and coolant containment and a clean shop. By limiting rapid motion to less than 100 IPM the machine is not only lower in cost, but also safer to operate. By replacing a conventional ATC (automatic tool changer) with the quick change Tormach Tooling System, the machine is both easier to afford and easier to maintain. Tooling cost is significantly lower, yet the tool change time is still less than 30 seconds. The Tormach PCNC 1100 Series 3 is built to industrial standards and perfectly suited to work cells in a lean manufacturing environment or dedicated secondary operations.
The Tormach PCNC 1100 Series 3 is PC controlled, allowing your CAD and CAM software to coexist with the CNC control program. A single workstation takes your idea from concept to completion. Again, this reduces your machine cost and improves overall turnaround time. The control system uses standard industrial components and interfaces. This approach minimizes the initial cost, reduces maintenance cost, and virtually eliminates any risk of obsolescence. The combined effect gives you a highly reliable product with a low cost of ownership.

3829 Milling Machine CNC, Tormach PCNC 770 Series 3
The PCNC 770 was designed from the ground up as a CNC mill for the materials you cut the most. With a 10,000 rpm spindle and 130 IPM maximum feed rates, the PCNC 770 is a top performer when it comes to aluminum, light metals, and plastic – and still up to the task when you need to cut tough metals like stainless steel or titanium.
Combined with a space-saving footprint, basic household 115 VAC power requirement, and innovative moving features, the versatile PCNC 770 is a perfect fit, no matter the size of your shop.
The PCNC 770 is an affordable precision machine, designed for R&D, education, and hobbyists alike. It’s got enough power and speed to get the job done, but with the flexibility that you need to adapt to a wide variety of projects – prototyping, model making, customization – even light production.
The PCNC 770 is offered on an a la carte basis in order to meet the needs of a wide variety of users. The machine, computer, LCD and keyboard mount, stand, and 4th axis are each sold separately. We also offer CAD/CAM software, Tormach Tooling System, and a variety of helpful accessories. The base PCNC 770 mill comes without a stand or computer, but includes mill control software and all necessary cables.
