Powerful software that imports DXF file information and provides the user interface to add the data necessary to complete the part program. Same user friendly format as the ProtoTRAK programming

Not available for EMX / ELX CNC model machines.

The powerful Parasolid Converter makes it easy for you to generate ProtoTRAK mill programs from Parasolid 3D CAD files.

Not available for model EMX / ELX machines or retrofits.

The optional coolant pump is mounted on the back of the machine column. It is wired into the electrical panel for operation through the Accessory key on the CNC front panel. A manual switch is provided for ProtoTRAK EMX and SMX CNC two-axis models, or if Auxiliary Function option is not ordered.

A popular brand of glass scale  mounted on the table and saddle.

Convenient light with bright, long lasting halogen bulb.

Switches and brackets to set for maximum travel limits. Tripping the switch will cause the servo motors to shut down. Note, limit switches are not especially recommended. The system software monitors voltage intensity and will shut down the servos if it detects excessive force.

DRO and TRAKing are allowed with the door open, but the door must be closed for automatic CNC operations in the Program Run Mode.

This option converts the mechanical handwheels into electronic handwheels for operating the table and saddle which in turn enables the powerful TRAKing feature of the ProtoTRAK SMX CNC. The power comes in that you no longer have to choose between the efficiency of CNC and manual control - TRAKing gives you both. With TRAKing, you don't have to go through the process of proving out the CNC program before you press the Go button. You can run the CNC program at the speed at which you crank the handwheel. Go fast, go slow, stop and take a measurement, go backwards, whatever. You are in complete control as the machine moves the table, saddle and (for three-axis models) the quill through the programmed coordinates.

Standard on models FHM7 and DPM SX5P Bed Mills.
