Tormach Culture

Tormach Culture

The Tormach Culture

There is a reason our employees have an infectious smile, and only part of it is because of the regular lunches, fresh fruit, and relaxed environment. While Tormach has been in the industry for decades, our ‘start-up’ mentality makes you feel at home. You will help us take this creativity to the next level by becoming a thought entrepreneur while we support your ideas with technical know-how.

100% Employee Owned

Being employee owned, every voice and person matters when it comes to connecting our completely unique offerings to the maker community – whether they be robot-dueling performers or the hobbyists next door.

Tormach Makers

Clients aren’t the only ones who like building and creating – our team is cut from the same block. We are our tools’ biggest fans and, if you are just as excited about the possibilities behind each machine, you will fit right in.

Tormach Innovation

Tormach Innovation

The ingenuity of Tormach employees was modeled first by its founders, Greg Jackson and Ed Korn, who created the concept of personal CNC machines after noticing an unmet need for smaller, more affordable equipment featuring professional capabilities. While imitators have tried mirroring this vision, Tormach’s focus on lowering the barrier to CNC by making the equipment more accessible has made them the leader in this niche market.

This innovation mindset continues, as Tormach pioneers in CNC equipment with products like:

  • SmartCool By Tormach Logo

    This affordable coolant system for CNC machines requires less nozzle repositioning by connecting software with an automated hose.

  • PathPilot

    The Tormach-exclusive software offers an approachable, professional-grade interface for CNC machine control.

  • PCNC 440

    Tormach's new compact and affordable mill, the PCNC 440 is perfect for anybody that wants to do real cutting, but doesn’t have a lot of space.

  • Tormach RapidTurn

    This machine accessory converts a mill into a CNC chucker lathe without the cost or space a standard CNC lathe demands.

To share this expertise, we work with student groups through STEM programs, host educational seminars at our annual open house, connect college students with real-life experiences through internships, and, sponsor scholarships.

Do you:

    • enjoy seeing complex shapes cut out of metal to make the products you’ve designed,
    • watch machining videos on YouTube in your spare time, or
    • consider yourself a maker, welder, or fabricator?
