Industrial construction wrapped in a compact size

A robust, fully welded steel-tube frame and aluminum gantry. The 1300PL plasma table is built for speed, accuracy, and longevity.

It’s lift-gate deliverable. You won’t need expensive riggers to set it up.

It runs on single-phase 220V power. If you have a space with proper ventilation, you can probably set it up there.

1,000 inches/min cutting and rapids and quick acceleration. Servo motors are responsive and accurate.

50 in. x 51 in. travels. Big enough to support larger metal sheets, but compact enough to fit in a tight space.

PathPilot Plasma set up


All Tormach CNC equipment ships with PathPilot, the brain that runs our machines. It's easier to learn and use. You'll start cutting parts faster and with fewer headaches.

The version of PathPilot that comes with the 1300PL has a couple of added bonuses. These are features that can't be found elsewhere on plasma tables under $25,000.

DXF import - You'll be able to import DXF files directly into PathPilot's conversational mode. The power lies in how fast and easy this makes using the 1300PL.

Kerf compensation - The width of the path that's removed from metal when plasma cutting is called a kerf. When you define the boundaries of your design, PathPilot will make sure the kerf doesn't bleed into your piece. It's a simple idea but will save you from massive frustration.

Program, learn, and train online with PathPilot HUB - All you need are an Internet connection and a web browser. Log in (free membership) to take PathPilot for a spin, learn how to program, or make usable G-code.
