Wisconsin-based machine tool designer Tormach LLC is introduce a latest version of its most admired CNC Vertical Milling, the PCNC 1100 Series 3. The latest machine is built on a shed iron enclose with “hand-scraped” hydrodynamic glide ways, with low-friction PTFE-filled acetyl-bonded downhill surfaces. The 5100 RPM R8 spindle is determined by a 1.5-HP initiation motor; by means of sensor less vector control reason provided by Emerson manage Techniques.
The Series 3 has a re-engineered motion scheme that incorporates with high-performance polyphase stepper motors, with guide shine micro step drivers. “This scheme provides an important augment in axis speed,” the designer announce, “as well as keep back motor torque at wounding speeds, thermal and over-current security modes for the driver modules, and ultra-quiet process.”
"We have invested extensively into the manufacturing of the latest drive system, and are convinced that it is best-in-class in both performance and consistency,” comment Greg Jackson, president of Tormach. “Our assignment with all Tormach goods is to give extraordinary value in CNC, and the Series 3 is one more example of our commitment to success that goal."
Additional improvements in the latest machine’s design contain a more hard-wearing copolymer enamel paint scheme, and a redesigned operator's board. A latest shed iron tool tray has been added, too. Series 3 Motion promote kits are accessible for legacy PCNC models.
Tornach designs and builds CNC machining, frills, and machineries, as well as motion control goods for users concerned in Research and Development, education, short-run invention, “or basically entrepreneurs with new novel ideas,” it said. Its products are sold directly through online.
"From the commencement, we have listening carefully on a modular design values for our mills," said Jackson. "This not only allows our consumers to improve presentation of older models to our present manufactured goods specifications, but also conserve venture value." Special promote kit pricing is obtainable to existing PCNC owners.
