Dramatically improve productivity by reducing production cycle times, improving labor utilization, and reducing planning and organization.
If your machinist can run a ProtoTRAK, this may be the easiest production capacity you will ever add.
With the ProtoTRAK EMX:
Model KEMX – 2 axis CNC and 3-axis DRO
ProtoTRAK CNC retrofits will bring your Bridgeport knee mill (or copy) into the modern age.
Each kit includes everything you need: control, software, motors, ballscrews, hardware, everything.

The TRAK LPM integrates the control, machine and person to a degree never seen before. The objective of each system is to form a part of the production system that drives set up labor and changeover time to the minimum.
You don't have to use the systems to make parts. But you can use the systems to help you drive positive change in your shop. Click on the links below to learn more about each of these systems.
The TRAK LPM starts with your people as they are and enables them to contribute at a whole new level.
The ProtoTRAK PMX, is after all, a ProtoTRAK. Your machinists will pick up the handful of new screens in a couple of hours.
Even people who are new to machining will learn quickly and contribute at a higher level faster because the ProtoTRAK PMX is so easy to learn.
The systems integrated into the TRAK LPM can help put you on a path to continual improvement.
Every shop is different. The TRAK LPM gives you a substantial set of tools to build on for creating positive change in your shop.
Craftsmen know what they are doing, and they take pride in their work. Their jobs come out right because that is who they are. Craftsmanship is an attitude as well as an accumulation of skills.
Craftsmen don't typically flourish in production environments because technology divides work into a set of specialties, such as CAD/CAM and CNC operation, that are each difficult to master at a high level. The TRAK LPM is not for high production. It is for jobs that can be run in hours or in a couple of days. Instead of using technology that excludes your craftsmen, it puts them in control of the entire production process.
It doesn't matter if the craftsman runs the machine or supervises a junior machinist. Fast production of parts made right is the reward for wielding craftsmanship in production.
Can you see how that can impact your business?
