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.
