Tormach’s New 1500MX CNC Mill 

The 1500MX CNC mill is a servo-driven machine with linear rails and an epoxy granite frame made in North America - Takes capable, affordable, and easy-to-use to a whole new level.


Our community asked, and we listened. Tormach customers love our capable yet affordable machines, easy-to-use PathPilot® control software, and US-based tech support. Your business has grown over the years and your need for higher performance has grown as well.

Features of the 1500MX we think you will be most excited about:

Epoxy Granite Frame (made in the USA): Epoxy granite frames have 10x the damping of cast iron, resulting in better surface finishes and 30% longer tool life.

4HP, 10K RPM Spindle (Max 6HP): Power at the right RPM range to leverage modern, highly efficient, high speed tool paths.

1200 IPM X/Y & 600 IPM Z: Rapid and cut at up to 1200 IPM keeps up with advanced, constant-engagement tool paths.

Thru-Spindle Coolant Ready: Every 1500MX comes ready for TSC if you choose to add it later. TSC is 7x faster for drilling holes, results in smoother finishes, helps make more consistent parts, and extends tool life.

Servo Motors with Absolute Encoders: 23 bit absolute position encoders with battery backup. The 1500MX’s servos mean you never have to reference the machine, even between power cycles.

PathPilot Powered by Tormach


No matter your CAD/CAM solution, you can program with PathPilot®. PathPilot® is Tormach’s FREE and open-source CNC controller and is included on all our machines. You can edit standard G-code offline or even online with PathPilot HUB.

We’ve made some exciting updates to PathPilot®, especially for the 1500MX that include the addition of tool wear compensation and rewriting the trajectory planner to incorporate machine smoothing.

If you’ve used PathPilot® before on any Tormach machine, you’ll find your ability to get up and running on the 1500MX lightning fast.

1500MX Beta Customer Testimonials 

"What we are most excited about with the 1500MX mill is the tool changer with the BT30 high-quality spindle. We have already seen cycle times shorten and combined with the rapids, it has shaved significant time off of parts. The extra coolant flushing of the chips has also saved us a few hours of cleanup already. And our employees have noted how nice it is to not have to re-reference and touch tools and datum points off each morning which saves even more time each day. <br /><br />I expect the 1500MX to take over a large percentage of the millwork we have, leaving our 1100M for more onesie twosie orders and prototype parts. I am sure as time goes by we will add more to this list. We are absolutely loving this machine!"

Larry Britzman, Owner, Britzman Enterprises LLC

"We are most excited about the speed, power, and automation the 1500MX brings to both our prototyping and production abilities. It is exciting to see how quickly it can create the parts we designed. And it feels powerful being able to send the program to the machine, hit go, and watch it make what we need without needing to assist it in any way."

Keegan Karl, Vice President at DarkAero Inc.


The 1500MX has two options. It can be purchased factory assembled (loading dock or forklift required at delivery address) or it can be purchased with the enclosure and optional accessories installed by the customer for those who require lift-gate delivery.
