Why Tormach CNC mills are reliable, usable and affordable

If you’re thinking about your next CNC mill, then chances are you’re looking for three things:

Reliability - it always delivers on tough projects
Usability - it’s quick to both learn and use
Affordability - it doesn’t cost the earth to buy, run, maintain or upgrade

Here’s why.

CNC Mills to Suit All Your Needs

No matter how big or small your ideas, the Tormach 1100M & 1100MX mills have the answer.

Thanks to their ability to handle one-off projects, short-run productions, rapid prototyping or complex secondary operations, both machines are ideal for the hobbyist, educational institution or commercial workshop alike.

Because both the 1100M & 1100MX CNC mills are available in four escalating packages (Entry | Starter | Standard | Premium), it means there’s always a Tormach to suit your budget. You can start small and build up, or go all-in from day one.

Not only that, but because our machines are also modular, you can build up your CNC mill as your ambitions grow with plug-and-play accessories like the ATC, 4th axis, or chucker lathe.

The Tormach 1100M & 1100MX really is the machine to suit all projects.

A CNC Mill That Will Cut Almost Anything

When buying a new CNC milling machine, you need to be sure it can handle anything you throw its way. You don't want projects grinding to a halt because your spindle can't handle the materials.

Some people are surprised that Tormach’s machine tools can cut challenging materials like stainless steel or titanium. They get fooled by the budget-friendly price! But make no mistake, it doesn’t matter if you need to mill delicate woods or high-grade metals, the Tormach 1100M and 100MX is both versatile and powerful enough to adapt to any project.

Operating at over 7500 RPM, the spindle has enough horsepower to cut titanium and other tough metals without the risk of damage if crashed.

Not only that but if you need to replace your spindle after it’s gone to the great CNC machine shop in the sky, you only need to spend hundreds rather than thousands to get back to cutting chips.

Tormach CNC Mills - Easy to Install & Maintain

As a company of dedicated machinists ourselves, we know a tidy workspace is a happy workspace. Which is why both the 1100M and 1100MX CNC mills are designed to ensure everyday maintenance is as simple as possible.

Both the Tormach 1100M & 1100MX fit into spaces the big boys simply can’t and perform with capabilities other small mills simply won’t.

Likewise, when budgeting for a new machine, you don't want any nasty surprises - like pricy fitting costs. That's why we decided to design both the 1100M & 1100MX for easy home installation to save you money.

But if you do have any installation issues, with a Tormach you always have peace of mind you can access our in-house team of dedicated machinists and engineers to guide you through.
