2x4 cnc plasma cutter

Torchmate continues to broaden product options and offers a path to growing your table as your needs require. Introducing the newest line of Torchmate Growth Series 2x4 CNC Tabletop Systems. We are pleased with such a high response to our Growth Series 2x2™ CNC Prototyping System that we wanted to offer an upgrade option. We want to make it easy and affordable for your Torchmate CNC machine to grow as your needs grow.

The Growth Series 2x4 is versatile, mobile, easy to use, and more powerful than the Growth Series 2x2 with 2 380 oz. in. motors and 1 269 oz. in. motors. It is built to handle CNC Plasma Cutting, CNC Routing, CNC Drilling, CNC Milling, CNC Engraving or most any other tool for which you need robotic control and repeatability. The Growth Series 2x4 comes with the user friendly Visual Machine Designer (VMD) software included. The system allows you to use software and tooling you already have allowing you to simply import your file to the VMD software, and with the generic mounting plate your chosen tool holder can be mounted for plasma cutting, routing, glue applications, vinyl cutting, and more. Additional options are available in the software section of our website and our accessories section found under the Products tab at the top of the page.

 What is included in the basic system:

Torchmate 2x4 Growth SeriesGrowth Series 2x2 machine owners can upgrade their machines to the Growth Series 2x4 or the Growth Series 4x4™ at an affordable price while costing no more than purchasing the 2x4 system or 4x4 system from the start. In addition to the upgrade cost there is a small deposit that will be refunded to you when we receive your old rails back. The upgrade options allow Torchmate customers to invest in a Torchmate CNC machine with confidence knowing their purchase is flexible enough to be converted into a larger sized CNC machine effectively and affordably.

Available Software

Torchmate CAD/CAM Lite

  • The Torchmate CAD/CAM program was developed specifically to create shapes for cutting.

Torchmate CAD/CAM

  • Everything in CAD/CAM Lite plus nesting, scanning and hogging. It contains every feature needed, including dxf importation, automatic kerf compensation, automatic lead-ins and lead-outs, and much more.


  • In addition to being a full-blown computer assisted design program, BobCAD renders 2D images into three dimensional shapes. It then generates G-code to create the 3D pieces with torchmate’s automated z-axis in conjunction with a router, roto-ZIP tool, engraver, etc.

Rhino 3D

  • Create digital 3D models of your projects before you start the actual fabrication process. All parts fit together just as they would in a physical model. It is possible to rotate the model, zoom in to see the finest detail, and view its components model from the real thing.


  • RhinoCAM is a general purpose machining program for the general machinist. RhinoCAM includes 2 ½ axis, 3 axis, 4 axis and 5 axis operations. This powerful package is ideal for mold, die and tooling, wood working rapid prototyping and general machining markets and generate G-code to be directly sent to the Torchmate machines. This product boasts of powerful toolpath generation strategies coupled with tools for efficiently controlling the cutting tool for detailed machining capabilities, while not sacrificing ease of use. It has all the basic functionality as well as additional features suitable for demanding users with sophisticated manufacturing requirements.
