Growth Series™2x2™

Torchmate 2x2

Every once in a while a product is introduced that changes the world.  The purpose of the Torchmate Growth Series™ 2x2™ CNC Prototyping System is to do just that.  The Torchmate 2x2™ is designed to change the way you make parts in your home, school or small fabrication shop.  It is designed to be versatile, mobile and easy to use.  It is designed to bring CNC Plasma Cutting, CNC Routing, CNC Drilling, CNC Milling and CNC Engraving to you in one tight little package.  Everyone knew that the time would eventually come when shops everywhere could look at CNC Technology and Robotics as just another tool, like a Mill, Lathe, Router, Bandsaw or Drill Press rather than some daunting thing that is out of their reach and comprehension. That time has come.

 

Every Torchmate 2x2™ CNC Prototyping System is designed as a multi-use platform to which you may mount secondary tooling for which you would like robotic control and repeatablility.  The Torchmate Driver software is included with every system. You simply import your file to be cut into the driver software.  A generic mounting plate is included to accept your chosen tool holder, be it for plasma cutting, routing, drilling, engraving or milling.

Torchmate 1

Torchmate 1

 The 2 axis Torchmate 1 is intended for use those customers on a budget that would prefer to invest their own "sweat equity" to get the best possible system at the lowest price on the market.   We realized early on that if our customers can fabricate the heavy part of the machines themselves, then that can translate into real savings. This unit includes a basic DIY (do-it-yourself) kit less the plasma cutter unit and PC.  The kit requires about $400 worth of steel, which you purchase locally to save shipping costs.  Welding skills are required to complete the construction of the steel table. Completion time is approximately 40 hours. The Torchmate 1 kit includes our 2 axis Windows-based electronics and driver software.  The motors included are 350 oz. in.

 

A DIY kit includes the basic items you need to fabricate a CNC cutting machine. All the complicated design work is done, allowing you to avoid the trial and error of developing your own system. You simply weld the main table and assemble the gantry according to the provided plans. Standard features of DIY kits include complete instructions, all steel bracketry, stepper drive motors, dual drive, CNC drive and control boxes, cabling, bearings, nuts, bolts, washers, hardened needle bearing guide rollers, timing pulleys and belts, and driver software. Design software and tool interfaces are available at an additional charge. The electronics and software are turn-key and require you only to connect the cables and wires according to full instructions provided with the system. You can tailor any accessories and add-ons according your needs and budget.

Additionally, the Torchmate 2 is available in as a gantry kit, requiring welding skills to assemble the rail system.

 

Kit completion time is approximately 16 hours which can be done over the course of a weekend.  You fabricate the rail system from locally purchased steel to save in shipping costs and assemble the gantry according to the provided instructions. This option requires welding skills as you will weld the steel table together. The kit will include complete instructions, all steel bracketry, stepper drive motors, CNC drive and control boxes, cabling, bearings, gears and gear racks, nuts, bolts, washers, hardened needle bearing guide rollers, timing pulleys and belts, and driver software.

 

Not a welder? Not a problem! The Torchmate 2 also comes in bolt together form with precision ground x-axis rails. The heavy anodized extruded aluminum allows for easy bolt together assembly. You assemble the gantry unit according to provided instructions using simple hand tools. The Torchmate 2 was designed for continuous plasma or oxy-fuel use in industrial settings.  It uses precision linear motion components for the Y axis, and its electronics are fully equipped for up to 3 axes of motion.  Add our optional Z axis column and a router or drill to produce shapes or holes in wood, plastic, laminate, soft metals, etc.

Torchmate 3

Torchmate 3 Bolt Together

In response to several requests throughout the industry, the Torchmate 3 was developed with suggested features including a gearbox drive system, 8” drop-rail forklift friendly feature, and dual x-axis motors. The Torchmate 3’s rugged construction uses heavy extruded aluminum rail support beams that weigh 7.6 lbs. per foot.  The machine weighs in at approximately 450 lbs., yet has the stiffness and rigidity of a steel machine weighing four times more.

 

Torchmate 3 machines have made their homes all across the United States and internationally. Building ships, tanks, off road vehicles, gates, doors and sculptures are only some of the thousands of uses across the world customers have found for this remarkable product. Available as a gantry kit or in bolt together form, the Torchmate 3 offers cost savings and easy of assembly while introducing an assortment of innovative features. Our gantry kit includes a heavy extruded aluminum gantry unit which you assemble according to provided instructions. You purchase steel locally and construct the support table only. Welding skills are required for this option. For our customers that do not have welding skills we provide the bolt together option. You will receive the heavy anodized extruded aluminum and the gantry kit. Bolt the table together and complete the assembly of the gantry using simple hand tools.

Routermate

Routermate

The Routermate was designed from the ground up with the sole purpose of routing and milling in mind, unlike plasma cutting tables that accept a secondary tool mount. The Z-axis has a travel distance of up to 12 inches.  To maintain rigidity the Z-axis bearings are located at the bottom of the axis plate and do not move away from the material as the Z-axis moves up like most machines on the market today. The Routermate’s table is adjustable in height from 6” to 34”. In addition, each of the table cross slat brackets is adjustable left and right, allowing side clamping of larger parts. The cross slats can also be mounted vertically by adjusting the end brackets. This can be used to reduce deflection on heavier materials. The table has additional independent vertical stops to allow one person to change the height. All the surfaces of the cross brackets are T-slotted for clamping work on any surface. Other table options include: flood and spray coolant, coolant capture/ return membrane for reusing coolant when a flood system is utilized, zoned vacuum table surfaces.

 

As well as being available as a finished turn-key machine, our Routermate also comes in a cost effective gantry kit form. You purchase steel locally and fabricate the rail system. Welding skills are required to construct the table when choosing this option. The gantry unit will arrive at your door fully constructed.

Plasma Cutters

Kaliburn Proline 2260

 

Plasma cutting is a vital process for any metal fabrication shop. Unlike oxy-fuel, plasma can cut stainless steel, aluminum, and brass, as well as mild steel. A CNC cutting system is only as accurate as the plasma torch it guides.  Don't short-change yourself by using an inferior plasma cutter.

 

New to our list of available plasma cutters are Kaliburn's Spirit family, Proline family, and Dagger plasma cutters. Kaliburn plasma cutting systems improve quality, increase throughput, and eliminate costly secondary processing. Extend the life of existing equipment without making a six figure investment.

 

Lincoln Electric's Tomahawk® 625 and the Tomahawk® 1000 offer the ultimate in portability and arrive ready to go for fast precise cutting.

 

Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster True Series Plasma Cutters and Hypertherm's Powermax Series Plasma Cutters both use a pilot arc ignition system rather than a high frequency start, and are fully compatible both with your computer and our electronics. Further, an arc voltage take-off is readily accessible on these plasma cutters, permitting you to use them with the above arc voltage torch height control.
