With most CNCs you must define your part in terms of toolpath. But with the powerful cycle capability of ProtoTRAK lathe CNCs, you simply define your part geometry and the dimensions of your stock. The toolpath is generated automatically.
Save tool data for use on different programs or even apply to manual work in DRO mode.
Access different drives, copy and rename files and look at part graphics before opening a file. Back up programs easily with the automatic back up routine.
Easily calculate missing print data. Auto load puts the solution into the event you are programming.
View data for your whole program at once. Sort and make changes to a group of events with the press of a button.
Easily convert dimensions from a DXF or DWG file into a ProtoTRAK program. The DXF Converter works with ProtoTRAK SLX CNCs on the shop floor or with the ProtoTRAK Offline system. It's an easy process that ProtoTRAK machinists can learn in minutes.
View the entire file and select the layers you want to machine.
Program events in the order you choose. Once the event type and dimensions are loaded, it’s easy to fill in the prompts.
Program the entire geometry of Pocket or Profile peripheries with just two clicks. Tell ProtoTRAK where to start then tell it which direction to go. The rest of the connected events are loaded automatically.
If lines drawn in a DXF file can’t be machined as drawn, the DXF converter enables you to insert or hide lines to get past these problems. No need to go back to the CAD department.
