The ProtoTRAK CNC/Manual control is simply the best technology solution for small batch machining available today.
ProtoTRAK® EMX Control
The entry level 2 axis CNC with up to 4 axis DRO display is able to do cycles like bolt hole circles, circular and rectangular pockets, even complex profiles. See the EMX and you will soon realise the days of a conventional DRO on a Mill are over.
ProtoTRAK® SMX Control
This 2 or 3 axis CNC offers the latest ProtoTRAK® technology. Canned cycles include pockets of every shape conceivable, pockets with islands, thread milling, bolt hole patterns, drilling, tapping and boring. AGE profiling means no more calculations! With the unique ‘guess’ key, if a dimension is missing from the drawing simply ‘guess’ the approximate position of a point or intersection, 3D surfacing with ‘on board’ DNC and the capability to handle virtually unlimited program size.
The Economics of the ProtoTRAK EMX and SMX Controls for the Mill
Increase profitability on the mill by up to 6 fold. If you machine tooling, fixtures, prototypes, moulds or repairs, you are among the most highly skilled, and therefore expensive people in manufacturing today. The economics are undeniable: the cost of the equipment you use is trivial compared to the cost of labour. The chart shows that you need to make your labour more efficient.
When making parts in small quantities, set-up is where much of your time is spent. Therefore set-up accounts for the majority of your labour cost (not to mention the majority of your headaches). ProtoTRAK drastically reduces the amount of time spent in set-up. It combines the simplicity and flexibility of manual machining with the capability of making arcs, angles and circles just like CNCs, saving you time and liberating you from drudgery.
Making hard work easy
Program components like this in just minutes, or if drawings are produced by CAD just use the on-board 'DXF File Converter' and won't have to bother with any programming. Programming time: 3 minutes
1 minute 22 sec.
Designed from the ground up to be the easy to use CNC.
