Called ‘The World’s Largest Celebration of STEM for Students’, FIRST Robotics expects over 10,000 visitors and over 800 teams of students at this year’s event in Detroit. This is the third year that Tormach has been on-site at the FIRST Robotics Championships. The company is one of the event’s machine shop sponsors and also supports the regional FIRST competitions that take place around the country leading up to the championships.

In Detroit, Tormach will be on-site with two CNC machines, the company’s PCNC 440 and higher-output 770M mills which can easily handle cutting plastics, aluminum to hardened steel and titanium. In addition, the company will have a desktop router and a well-stocked toolbox at the event to support the students.

At the FIRST events, the company sets up an onsite machine shop in the pits located right in the middle of the action on the show floor so student can bring their robots and projects for on-site repairs and modifications.
