About Element

Element Machine Tools was founded in 2015 to provide high performance manufacturing solutions at a price small manufacturers can afford. A need was identified for industrial level machines that are less intimidating and easier to learn and use. Element’s industrial CNC milling machines are powered by Mach4 Industrial (www.machsupport.com), giving them the performance manufacturers demand. Element is continuously researching and developing new machines and controls for current and future application.
