The power of TRAKing is that you no longer have to choose between the efficiency of CNC and the security of 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 you desire by turning the handwheel. Go fast, go slow, stop and take a measurement, go backwards, whatever. You are in complete control as the machine moves the saddle and cross slide through the programmed coordinates.

Not available for the 1440EX Lathes.

The optional work lamp is a 110 volt, 15 watt fluorescent light. The 18" light tube is mounted to the top of the splash shield just to the right of the spindle. The light is protected by a watertight polycarbonate tube that is sealed by an o-ring. A steel shield prevents damage from large flying objects and stainless steel armoring protects the electrical cable.

Available for current TRAK SX Lathes and as a retrofit for prior TRAK and Sport models 1440P and 1745P. A halogen work lamp is available as an option for the 1440EX lathe.
