After two days of classes, seminars, CNC convos, and making some serious chips, Tormach Tech Days has wrapped up! There was a lot that happened on Saturday, August 5th, including presentations from our Tormach Brand Ambassadors and friends of Tormach, as well as a new product announcement. If you missed it, here’s what happened.

John Saunders also talked about marketing in the manufacturing industry, giving some insight into his own business and how he operates his YouTube channel. The Hacksmith inspired the crowd with engineering as he spoke about how he came to be The Hacksmith. Robert Cowan talked about what it means the be a hobby machinist and how he’s been using his PCNC 440. We ran a work cell demo to showcase several Tormach machines, especially our new automated bandsaw, the Tormach AF50. The bandsaw features portability, hydraulic feed control, and programmable automatic workpiece positioning. The pre-production model was on display during the event, and we are getting ready to ramp up a beta program. Think you could use an automated bandsaw in your shop?
