Growth Series™ 4x4™

Torchmate Growth Series 4x4

Torchmate has responded to CNC market demand by launching the Torchmate® Growth Series 4X4 CNC machine — a new, versatile and adaptable robotic metal cutting product that adds to the company’s growing list of industry-leading CNC offerings. The Growth Series 4X4 machine is offered for sale through nationwide distributors and by calling Torchmate direct at (866) 571-1066.

 

With the Growth Series 4X4, Torchmate delivers a machine that grows with the consumer’s needs. Based on the overwhelming popularity of the company’s Growth Series 2X2 and 2X4 CNC machines, the Growth Series4X4 packs state-of-the-art plasma cutting, engraving, and routing capabilities into a larger cutting table size that increases the range of metal products the machine can cut. 

 

Growth Series2X2 and Growth Series2X4 machine owners can upgrade their machines to the Growth Series4X4 at an affordable price. 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.

 

Rugged Construction Torchmate 4x4The launch of our Growth Series4X4 machine underlines Torchmate’s continuing commitment to create machines that provide the affordability and flexibility that small businesses and hobbyists demand. The Growth Series4X4 allows CNC machine owners to upgrade their machines to keep pace with the expansion of their business or personal needs without starting all over. 2x2™ and 2x4™ owners can upgrade to the 4x4™ and pay no more than if you purchased the 4x4™ upfront. In addition to the upgrade cost there is a small deposit that will be refunded to you when we receive your old parts back.

 

The Growth Series4X4 has been designed with small metal shops, sheet metal companies, career and technical schools, hobbyists and the off-road and racing industry in mind. The Growth Series4X4 can be used to design and cut everything from intricate and professional-quality metal parts to chassis or suspension components. Sold with versatile software and compatible with multiple tools, the Growth Series4X4 has functions that are repeatable and precise — allowing a Torchmate machine owner to churn out many copies of the same metal part with a single computer click.

 

The price tag on the Growth Series4X4 sets it apart from the competition, and is another reason the Torchmate line of products have become a favorite of small businesses and hobbyists. Call our cnc sales specialist today for more information on pricing.
