Tormach PCNC1100 - CNC milling machine

The Tormach CNC Milling Machine lives in the machine shop, but it is currently managed by its own Resource Manager.

Resource Manager: Nick Serpa

We took delivery of our Tormach PCNC1100 on April 1, 2016. 

This machine requires extensive training and is not open to general member use without completion of classes and a training period.  The up-to-date list of the trained and authorized members is maintained on Slack in a post (you must be logged in to view it).

The required classwork is structured as follows:

Once students have completed these classes, they are considered to have their Tormach Learners Permit and may work on their own projects to be run on the machine only under supervision of another member who has their Tormach Drivers License.  Once members have proven their knowledge with a few successful projects, they will become Junior Operators and can run their own projects, but may not supervise others.  Once successful as a Junior Operator for a period of time, they can move on to also supervise members that have their Learners Permit.

Here are the basic machine specs:
