Education is vital for success, and Tormach tools provide accessible entry into the world of capable machining.
That’s why we’ve created the Tormach for Educators page, to provide resources and create a path to accessing tools that is as simple as possible for those looking to teach CNC, machining, and fabrication
There’s no rule that says machine tools have to be unwieldy and expensive. Nor does it say that mills and lathes in the classroom should be low-powered and incapable in the real world of manufacturing. Tormach machinery is proof that educational tools can both capable and approachable.
