So the only one I know is from LPKF.

hxxp://www.lpkf.com/

The LPKF ProtoMat H100 system provides significant reductions in the production time of prototype PCBs. The maximum milling speed is now almost doubled compared to the previous top-of-the-line system and can reach up to 100mm (4 inches) per second. The integrated smart following vector path generation allows the system to maintain a higher average speed. The combination of both of these features pushes the performance factor to 2-3 times.

Now, production of prototype multilayer boards can be comfortably accomplished in-house. The resolution has been increased five-fold to 1 µm. Utilizing the 100,000 rpm spindle motor, the plotter creates 100µm (4 mil) tracks and spacing. This accommodates all state-of-the-art packages, including BGA and µBGA®.

I am new on this Forum.

I recently converted my mill to CNC for PCB prototyping.
I made only preliminary test for the moment about tools and some software (Kcam and DeskCNC).
The best software available I found at the moment for Gerber to Gcode conversion is Coppercam from Galaad.
It has very nice features like the possibility to remove all unused copper or better from selected area (to speed up the work)

You can found a demo at http://galaad.net/coppercam-eng.html.

At the moment I am looking for tools for engraving PCB, Dremel model or self made tools do not work properly for SMD fine line.
I found at http://www.frezycnc.pl/  some interesting tools.

I use this model 11 years (03/1997, DOS, PC 386-33. In this time - Atlon X2 - 2x2,4).

PLT version (A4) cost ~2000 €. USB ~900 € more.

Much more cheaper is Sable 2015 - desktop cnc, $499 without the driver board, power supply and the miller. 200x200mm real operating area. It is very good for that low price. I bought it from ebay a month ago and I'm happy for now.

With good mini miller and engraving tools it gives me the same results like KG-3925-G from K2 for about $8,000.
I'm doing 2-layer prototyping pcbs - engraving, drilling, cutting; plastic box special shape hole cutting and smt stencil cutting so far. Excelent results driven by Mach3 when you use it with appropriate tools.

You can see it in action:
