Router Mill Provides Desktop CNC Capabilities

Tormach Inc., a supplier of compact CNC machines, now offers the xsTECH Router Mill, a ready-to-use tabletop system with full CNC capabilities. "The xsTECH is small but features big capabilities for cutting plastics, wood and aluminum," said a company spokesperson.

A suitable starter CNC system for students learning CNC fundamentals, the xsTECH comes ready to run and requires no assembly. It plugs into a standard 120V wall outlet, and for those outside of the U.S., a 230V version is available.

The xsTECH comes complete with a variety of features including:

  • 10.4" touchscreen PathPilot controller
  • Keyboard, mouse and jog shuttle
  • WiFi module
  • Electronic tool setter
  • 16-piece carbide cutting tool set
  • ER11 collets
  • See-through enclosure for dust control and safe use.

"The xsTECH is small and easy to use, and like all Tormach CNC machines, it uses our award-winning PathPilot control software," said Andrew Grevstad, Business Development Director. "PathPilot is intuitive and provides newcomers with the perfect entry into understanding CNC fundamentals."

Remote Teaching and Learning with PathPilot HUB

Tormach's PathPilot HUB is a useful tool for teachers and remote educators. It provides a full software interface for any Tormach machine, including the xsTECH, and allows students to learn CNC programming from a virtual hub. According to Tormach's Marketing Director, Lori Morrison Bufalo, PathPilot HUB has been used extensively by teachers during the COVID pandemic: "Teachers are using PathPilot HUB to teach students remotely," she said. "When they are able to come into school to use the Tormach mills, the students have already learned their programming skills and can make their proven parts. Ideal for teaching the basics of CNC, teachers and students can simply create their accounts on Tormach's PathPilot HUB site. This allows them to do anything they could do on the actual machine, only it is a digital twin. Best of all, PathPilot HUB is completely free to use."
