CNC Plasma Cutting Gantry Kits
Torchmate X Gantry Kits provide the optimal solution when a custom table is needed. Shops and manufacturers can order a CNC gantry kit up to 8 feet wide, with some Torchmate gantry kits spanning up to 42 feet long. Ship yards, steel suppliers, rail car fabricators, barge builders, and other heavy industrial applications benefit from the increased production throughput of a maximum length table.
The gantry kit provides our customers with a money saving option, as building the water table and rail supports on location has a big impact on reducing shipping costs. The gantries come fully assembled and are ready to be laid onto the gear racks and rails once the table is constructed. The construction of the table is easy to accomplish if your facility is already complete with welding equipment and staff.
Gantry kits come in both Torchmate X and XHD models. High definition gantry kits come with a slightly modified gantry that has been engineered to house the larger 400-watt servo motors. They also come with larger spur gears and 35:1 low backlash gearboxes. Traditional Torchmate X gantry kits are equipped to run lighter air plasma torches that use far less amperage than the high definition alternatives.

- In addition to being a full-blown computer assisted design program, BobCAD renders 2D images into three dimensional shpes. 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.
- 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.
