Torchmate's 2X2 CNC machine makes computer-automated tools affordable

RENO, NEV. - Before Torchmate's recently released 2X2 CNC Prototyping System came along, computer-automated fabrication and woodworking was reserved for deep-pocketed shops. Torchmate's newest offering changes all that - packing industry-leading, computer-operated metal and wood working machinery into a mobile and affordable package that fits into any garage, and any budget.

Hobbyists, woodworkers, fabricators and small shop owners can now build intricate and professional-quality parts using the versatile 2X2. Sold with versatile software, and compatible with multiple tools, the 2X2's functions are repeatable, precise and fast. The 2X2 cuts, drills, engraves and can be used as a router and plasma cutter.

Using a 2X2, an off-road vehicle owner or woodworker could beef up their suspension or customize their cabinetry. Hobbyists can manufacture custom parts for any project in their garage. And for welders, carpenters, engineers and small shops owners, the uses of the 2X2 are truly endless.

"This is a smaller version of a very expensive machine," said Torchmate CEO Bill Kunz. "Torchmate has worked hard to create a machine that has all the capabilities of a prototyping machine that typically costs tens of thousands of dollars."

The 2X2's repeatability allows a user to design a part once and manufacture as many as needed with ease. The 2X2's software is easy to use and compatible with CAD and CAM design programs.

Along with a purchase of the machine, 2X2 customers gain access to Torchmate's robust and attentive technical support crew, which can walk any Torchmate customer through software set-up or the machine multi-platform capabilities.

"Approximately 500 2X2 machines have already hit the market, and the machine's affordability, durability and versatility has impressed buyers," said Kunz.

New distribution partnerships with national retailers like 4 Wheel Parts, is putting Torchmate's highly sought after products in stores across the nation.
