High Speed 3 Axis Machining on the Raptor TP-1032M: Takes advantage of Siemens Cycle 932 programming function, which is a mold making cycle. The proprietary high technology cycle allows the operator to make real time adjustments to maximize the balance between finish quality and machining time.
Tool Changing on the Raptor TP-1032M Mill: Shows four tool changes with machining operations for roughing, finishing, chamfering, drilling and rigid tapping.
Milling Hardened Steel on the Raptor TP-1032M Mill: This mill, which has high speed spindle and rapid cutting rates, is capable of using high speed machining strategies, like trochoidal toolpath programming to perform high efficiency milling. Benefits include increased tool life, high material removal rate and reduced wear on machine components.

TP-1032M CNC Mini Mill - Features/Benefits

Milling Machine - Features/Benefits
3/4ths Enclosure - Still Can Fit Through a 3’ DoorwayFull surround enclosure helps contain coolant chips. Improves safety by reducing the risk caused by flying debris. Shipped with enclosure installed - disassemble to move through a 3’ door.
Fully Supported Precision Ball ScrewsHigh quality linear guide ways have preloaded bearings, eliminating mechanical play and making the linear axis motion highly accurate. Linear ways are also faster (because of minimal friction). More

Linear ways also have minimal stick-slip - a common complaint on box ways. Another advantage of linear ways is their long service life - plus maintenance is easier because the ways can be easily replaced.
Optional 12 Tool Automatic Tool Change SystemReduces cycle times by automatically changing tools between cuts - without an operator. Reduces operator set-up errors and maximizes productive operator and machine hours.
BT-30 Tool Holding SystemIndustry standard CNC tool holding system - the other being the CAT system. Tooling is cheaper with the BT system. Our customers have said they wanted a quality tooling system - and value pricing.
Pneumatic Tool ChangerManual tool changes (when not using the ATC) are made with the push of a button. This built-in system is streamlined and fast - it’s ready to go when you get your machine.
Large Table and Work Cube10” x 32” precision ground work table and generous work cube dimensions. Big enough for real production work.
Heavy Machine Castings, PLUS a Heavy Cast BaseHeavy duty vibration damping castings turns this small mill into a full duty production machine. High weight to work cube ratio, assures high rigidity and advanced accuracy. Sturdy cast stand has built-in coolant recycling tank.
Counter Weight Balanced Mill HeadReduces stress on Z axis motor and ball screw at higher RPMs. Increases accuracy and extends life of Z axis components. A counter balanced mill head will not crash in the event of a control failure.
Drive System - Features/Benefits
4 HP Servo Spindle Drive30% more power than the MT-1032. Servo drive on spindle adds to the functionality compared to the TP-1032M. Constant torque rise throughout speed range - capable of rigid tapping and spindle alignment.
100-6000 RPM Spindle SpeedServo driven spindle provides rapid speed changes, from 100-6000 RPMs in a spindle speed range. No need for changing gears or belts. Constant torque rise, even at low RPM are assured with the servo drive.
600 IPM Feed RatesFaster speeds equals higher production rates. The Siemens in- dustrial control, axis servo drive system and linear ways provide the power and control that allows for higher speeds - many times faster than competitive systems.
Safety/Operation - Features/Benefits
Automatic Lubrication SystemLubricates all wear points during machine operation at continuous time intervals. Benefits include reduced labor and material costs and significant extension of bearing life.
Programmable Coolant SystemControl coolant at the control panel using standard M-Codes. Cycle times can be significantly reduced - feeding and cutting speeds can be significantly increased. Proper cooling extends life of cutting tools.
Work LightFocused lighting elements increase operator efficiency and reduce fatigue. This light is flicker resistant - also waterproof, resistant to cooling and lubricants. Impact and vibration resistant.
Alarm LightTurns on when control recognizes a machining error or machine malfunction. An operator standing away from the machine is visually alerted the activated alarm light when machining cycle is finished or mahine aerrors out.
Siemens 808D CNC Control - Features/Benefits
Closed Loop SystemSystem directly monitors motor position and velocity in real time. The system then automatically makes corrections to assure correct tool positioning. High accuracy and maximum parts quality - minimal reject rate. Also assures smoother surface finishes.

PC based systems on the market generally use an “open loop” system which is not capable of monitoring the drive system. An open loop system can’t make corrections in real time and is inherently less accurate than a closed loop system.
Siemens Servos and DrivesAchieves rapid acceleration and higher speeds - maintains high torque throughout speed range. Motor is highly efficient - and it stays cool. Quiet at high speeds - vibration free operation.
Ideal for CNC BeginnersIdeal for entry level CNC users, the innovative, integrative start-GUIDE from Siemens provides an on-line digital help function on every screen. Helpful instructions are available anytime - at a push of a button.
Simple & Intuitive InterfaceWell designed conversational programming functions and Wizards from Siemens help streamline programming at the control panel. All Siemens 808D controls come standard with this SINUMERIK Operate BASIC functionality.
Compact and RobustIndustrial panel design with hardened features is ideal for harsh environments. Small compact design matches smaller machines tools like the AutoMateCNC line.
USB Connector - Easily Handles Large FilesThis unique Siemens function allows for the streaming of large program files direct from a USB. Large files are no longer a concern - other CNC systems lack this robust level of functionality.
Built-In HelpsSeveral Siemens provided “assists” help streamline programming functions. One example would be Hot Keys. With the Hot Key function, machine operators can easily access commonly used screens using operator defined hot keys.

Due to such a large variation in sizes of our machines, please call us at 800.476.4849 or fill out the online quote form to obtain a freight quote.

Forklift Requirements
  • The length of forks on your machine must be a minimum of 6' long.
  • The lifting capacity must be greater than the weight of the machine you are purchasing.
Air Ride Delivery
Standard Delivery
Standard Delivery
(Forklift and Loading Dock) This delivery method is a standard Less Than Truckload shipment meant for a location that has a fork lift with a minimum of 6' forks and a lifting capacity greater than that of the machine being purchased. You must also have a loading dock capable of driving your forklift onto the truck. If you're unsure of your personnel or fork lift's capabilities, please contact a local rigger for assistance.
Flatbed Delivery
Flatbed Delivery
Forklift without loading dock: this delivery method enables your machine to be shipped to your location and removed from the truck by a forklift (with 6’ forks) driving at ground level. Your locatin must be truck/trailer accessible. It is a standard open trailer flatbed truck. Machines are crated and covered with a tarp.
Air Ride Delivery
Air Ride Delivery
Air Ride Delivery
Forklift with or without loading dock: this delivery method is an upgraded package that transports your machine on a trailer using an air ride suspension system ensuring the delivery of your machine delicately and safely to its destination.
If you do not have a forklift or a loading dock, we'd be happy to discuss alternative options with you. Call us at 1-800-476-4849 and speak with one of our representatives to discuss the logistical solution best suited for you.
Shipping to Canada
We use a variety of transport companies for Canadian shipments to ensure you the best possible rates when going across the border. We offer two different options when dealing with customs, duties and taxes going into Canada. The first option is to act as your own servicing agent, we'll sell you the machine, but contacting a broker and paying duties, taxes and fees is up to you. The second option would be an all inclusive package where we take care of everything for you, your job is to prepare to receive the machine when delivered.
International Shipping
