Advanced Features with Verify incorporates 3D solid model machining simulation software that allows you to quickly and easily proof your ProtoTRAK mill and lathe programs prior to cutting chips.
The Auxiliary functions provide program control of spray mist or coolant, spindle off, and interface to a programmable rotary table or indexer.
Standard on model FHM7 Bed Mill.
Not available for models K3EMX and K3SMX Knee Mills.
The powerful Parasolid Converter makes it easy for you to generate ProtoTRAK mill programs from Parasolid 3D CAD files. Contact your sales rep for more details.
Not available for model K3EMX Knee Mills.
The optional coolant pump is mounted on the back of the machine column. It is wired into the electrical panel for operation as an auxiliary function or through the Accessory key on the CNC front panel. A manual switch is provided for ProtoTRAK SMX CNC two-axis models, or if Auxiliary Function option is not ordered.
The Networking Option lets you connect your ProtoTRAK to a network of other ProtoTRAKs or offline computers.
Not available for EMX / ELX CNC model machines.
Our most popular accessory. A convenient hand-held switch to start and stop the CNC servos during program run.
The unique Fog Buster non-fogging coolant sprayer precisely directs a fine stream of coolant to the tool and workpiece.
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.
6” Kurt vise and mounting hardware (Model 688 shown). Opens to 8.8”. Contact your sales rep to find the correct model vise for your machine.
