Education Packages

Torchmate is offering their state-of-the-art, affordable, robotic metalcutting machinery to shop classes in schools across the country, giving teachers a real world tool to teach design and manufacturing  skills to the next generation of airplane builders, automobile manufacturers and engineers. Versatile, technologically advanced and backed by the most comprehensive technical support in the industry,  Torchmate CNC machines are the perfect fit for high school and community college vocational training classes.


The machine students will see in the classroom is no different than the machine they will see in the real world. Training on a Torchmate machine builds both students’ design skills and their application of  those skills into actual fabrication. While metal cutting is a Torchmate machine’s most recognized feature, the machine can also be used for intricate wood-working, routing, Plasma cutting, vinyl sign  making and drilling.


For schools on a budget, this means that the machine can be used in multiple classes and for a variety of tasks. Each machine has the most advanced technological features, like repeatability,  integration with CAD and CAM software, and USB port compatibility. Using the Torchmate machine, students are able to grasp CAD and CAM design, as well as see the completion of their design into a  final product. Machined parts on a Torchmate machine can be welded and finished — allowing students the full educational experience in handson manufacturing. Students are able to put multiple skills  together using a Torchmate machine, allowing them to leave school not as an entry-level worker, but as a skilled CNC machine operator.


Teachers are able to unlock the full potential of a Torchmate machine by taking advantage of Torchmate’s superior technical support system. The company’s Reno, Nev.-based technical support has deep  knowledge of the full function of each machine. Free of charge, one of Torchmate’s dedicated support staff will work with metal shop teachers to help them understand each facet of the multi-functional  machine.
