Machines featuring the ProtoTRAK CNC

TRAK Bed Mills

featuring the ProtoTRAK SMX CNC

The ProtoTRAK SMX CNC is always easy to use

  • Manual milling when you need it
  • 2-axis CNC with manual quill
  • 3-axis CNC with programmable spindle speeds

Real Handwheels

So you can move the machine manually when that's the best way to get something done.

Generous Z Travel

For added capacity and versatility of tooling and workpieces.

Manual Quill

For convenient manual operation or for setting tool lengths.

Wide way surfaces

Hardened and ground for smooth operation and rigidity. Slideways are Turcite® coated for long life.

Quill Scale and Z Motor Encoder are one Z dimension

The ProtoTRAK SMX CNC integrates both encoders in order to keep track of position of tool. Your Z dimension will be accurate no matter which way you move.

Solid Ram moves along the column for Z servo jog and CNC

Provides mass for precision and heavy cuts.

Precision ground ballscrews in the table, saddle, and column

For accurate, precise positioning for manual and CNC operation.

Bed Support for table and saddle

Assures rigidity for precise machining and heavy workpieces.

TRAKing® Our favorite option!
Standard on the DPM SX5P and the FHM7 You control CNC program run by cranking one of the handwheels. You have to see it to appreciate what it will do for your productivity.
