The new Torchmate® Growth Series™ 4×4™ is described as a versatile, adaptable robotic system that responds to the market’s demand. It follows the company’s Growth Series 2×2 and 2×4 CNC machines, but because of its larger table it will cut a wider range of metal products. Operators of Growth Series 2×2 and Growth Series 2×4 machines can upgrade their systems, the developer indicated.
The new machine is a three-axis, motorized system (two X-axis drives, one y-axis drive, and a motor. It is supplied with customized control software (4×4 Driver) that is compatible with multiple tools, and capable of repeatable and precision performance so that operators can produce multiples with one click.
A water-table version of the machine also is available.
“The launch of our Growth Series 4×4 machine underlines Torchmate’s continuing commitment to create machines that provide the affordability and flexibility that small businesses and hobbyists demand,” stated Torchmate general manager Bill Kunz. “The Growth Series 4×4 allows CNC machine owners to upgrade their machines to keep pace with the expansion of their business or personal needs without starting all over.”
The Growth Series 4×4 is intended for smaller machine shops, fabricators, and sheet metal processors, career and technical schools, hobbyists, and off-road and racing fab shops. It may be used to design and cut intricate and professional-quality metal parts, including automotive chassis or suspension components.
