TRAKing / Electronic Handwheel Option

Since 1986, ProtoTRAK has brought an extraordinary level of productivity to small lot machining. When we tell you that TRAKing is the coolest thing ever made for tool room applications, you should believe that you owe it to yourself to get a live demo. This option converts the mechanical handwheels into electronic handwheels for operating the table and saddle and that 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 dare to 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) ram through the programmed coordinates.

TRAKing is an exclusive feature to ProtoTRAK. Anyone else who says they have it may not be lying, but they don't know what they are talking about.

Slam your productivity into high gear with TRAKing. Do yourself a favor and get a demo of this powerful feature.

Standard on models FHM7 and DPM SX5P.
