Tormach, Inc. is a supplier of affordable CNC Milling Machines and recently released their new 1100M and 770M CNC mills. These new M-series machines represent a ground-up redesign including over two years of upgrades resulting in higher power and faster performance than the company’s previous 1100 and 770 mills. Tormach exhibited these new machines for the first time at the International Manufacturing Technology Show held September 2018.
Billed as PCNC (Personal CNC) Milling Machines, the 1100M and 770M M-series improvements include a newly-designed enclosure and stand for better chip evacuation, more robust spindle drives (1.5 HP for the 770M, and 2HP for the 1100M), an Ethernet-based control system for improved diagnostics, and plug-and-play accessories for easy installation. The 770M and 1100M can cut the toughest materials, including stainless steel, titanium, and pre-hardened tool steel. The 1100M has increased Y-travel and a faster spindle (7,500 rpm) for improved cutting performance.
“With these new mills, customers will be able to start cutting parts on the 770M for around $15,000 and on the 1100M for around $17,000,” said Matt Berggruen, Tormach Product Engineer. “That includes a power drawbar, stand, enclosure, basic tooling, and coolant – not to mention free shipping. We’ve worked hard to make these the most affordable, highest performance CNC mills of their type on the market today.”
Tormach plans to introduce servo-driven versions of these two mills, the 770MX and 1100MX, soon. The MX series of machines will add an encoder to the spindle for rigid tapping, a BT-30 spindle, and servos for the X, Y, and Z axes. Berggruen says the new M-series machines will be easily upgradeable to the MX series. Tormach has released two new videos on the new machines that can be viewed on the company website or YouTube.
Tormach is now offering a free shipping program good towards all pre-tax orders of $50.00 USD and greater for any shipments in the 48 contiguous US states. For more information, visit Tormach.com or call 608/849-8381.
