CNC Mills Improve Chip Evacuation, Increase Speeds
IMTS 2018: Tormach’s 1100M and 770M CNC mills upgrade the design of the company’s previous models.
Tormach’s 1100M and 770M CNC mills feature an upgraded design of the company’s previous models. Improvements include a redesigned enclosure and stand for better chip evacuation, more robust spindle drives (1.5 hp for the 770M and 2 hp for the 1100M), an Ethernet-based control system for improved diagnostics, and plug-and-play accessories for easy installation.
The 1100M model also has increased Y-axis travel and spindle speeds ranging to 7,500 rpm for improved cutting performance over the previous version. The 770M model accommodates spindle speeds ranging to 10,000 rpm. Both models are designed to cut tough materials like stainless steel, titanium and pre-hardened tool steels.
Different machines offer different approaches to rotary travel, and each design has its own strengths. Here's how they compare.
Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
