8L Lathe Overview
A PERFECT FIT FOR THE SMALL SHOP
YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND
Have you wanted to incorporate turning in your shop setup? Whether it is in your garage, lab or classroom, the 8L provides an affordable and approachable lathe that allows any user to quickly machine parts without advanced CNC training.
Entrepreneurs can turn around their own prototypes without handing over a brilliant idea for another shop to make. R&D engineers can complete concepts and designs more rapidly by maintaining control of all phases of prototype iterations. With the intuitive, easy-to-understand nature of PathPilot, novices who are completely new to lathe machining can now learn how to use the machine while slowly easing into CNC modes of operation. The learning curve is shorter and learning more manageable.
IF YOU CAN DREAM IT…
Can it cut challenging materials like titanium? Yep. Softer materials like aluminum, wood, or plastics? You betcha! The Tormach 8L CNC Lathe is built to turn all types of materials into the parts from your dreams.
Not only can it get the job done (and the next one and the next one), the 8L is an affordable little workhorse, ideal for tight spaces. It runs on single-phase, household power, and the lathe comes in a fully-assembled enclosure as part of the base model.
