New Torchmate 4X4 CNC Machine is the Dream Holiday Gift for the Gearhead
RENO, Nev., -- The fall launch of Torchmate's 4X4 CNC machine has re-arranged the top of every gearhead and four-wheeler's holiday gift list.
Incredibly affordable for a machine of its size and versatility, the 4X4 supplies off-roaders, engineers, hobbyists and fabricators a lifetime of precise, robotic metal-cutting and plasma-cutting capabilities.
The new system is small enough to be portable, large enough to fabricate medium-sized components, durable enough to be a gift that lasts forever, and technologically advanced enough to impress even the most jaded fabricator.
For just under $5,000 the 4X4 puts highly advanced robotic metal-cutting and fabrication technology within the price range of those who thought that CNC machinery was an unattainable piece of gear set aside for the high-end fabrication and metal working shops.
Outfitted with easy-to-use software, the machine is compatible with CAD and CAM design programs that allow even hobbyists to create chassis and suspension components, cut race numbers, engrave metal and fabricate high-quality metal parts.
Torchmate backs each 4X4 system up with a world-class technical support crew that can walk anyone through the many features of the prototyping software and set-up. Torchmate offers free unlimited technical support for the life of your ownership.
