TRAK LPM

Vertical Machining Center

For cost effective, high-mix, low-volume work

Designed to be easy to learn and use, the TRAK LPM incorporates technologies to markedly reduce the changeover times that plague high-mix, low-volume shops.  It is the only VMC to integrate the machine, control, fixturing, and tool offset measurements into one complete system.  This means that it doesn’t require expensive probing systems that consume spindle time to measure offsets.  It also means that it doesn’t require a room full of special fixture to facilitate quick changeovers.

ProtoTRAK PMX

Powerful technology that simplifies CNC complexity

  • Powerful but easy to learn and use
  • PMX technology eliminates the "sea of buttons” normally associated with VMCs
  • Integrated into the TRAK LPM VMC
  • 3-axis CNC, 3-axis DRO (4th axis option)
  • Runs ProtoTRAK conversational language, G-code, CAM, 2 and 3-D CAD conversion software, and Verify Machining Simulation software

Easy to Learn and Use

  • Powerful ProtoTRAK conversational language programming
  • PMX technology eliminates the "sea of buttons" normally associated with VMCs

Powerful Features

  • Verify machining simulation software reduces programming time, rework and scrap
  • Parasolid and DXF CAD file coverters reduce programming times *
  • Fourth axis for complex work*

*Optional

Quick Changeovers

  • Integrated Jergens® ball locks reduce changeover times
  • External Tool Setting system helps eliminate spindle down-times
