ProtoTRAK on The Mill
The ProtoTRAK® CNC/Manual control is simply the best technology solution for small batch machining available today.
ProtoTRAK® KMX Control
A two-axis CNC control designed especially for Turret Mills, with up to four-axis DRO display (optional) is able to create cycles like bolt hole circles, circular and rectangular pockets, even complex profiles. See the KMX in action and you will realise the days of a conventional DRO on a mill are over.
ProtoTRAK® SMX Control
This three-axis CNC offers the latest ProtoTRAK technology. Canned cycles include pockets of every shape conceivable, with islands; thread milling; bolt hole patterns; drilling; tapping; and boring. AGE profiling means no more calculations! The unique ‘Guess’ key means that if a dimension is missing from a drawing, the operator can simply guess the approximate position of a point or intersection. ‘Adaptive Material Removal’ provides ground breaking ‘area clearance’, saving hours on jobs and improving surface finishes, as well as extending tool life. 3D surfacing with onboard DNC and the capability to handle virtually unlimited program sizes is also included.
The Economics of the ProtoTRAK® KMX and RMX 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.
