Easy to use yet full CNC functionality


  • Easy to learn and remember all the features
  • We recommend this control when most of the work for the machine is simple
  • Great for shops where different people use the machine occasionally
  • Vo Techs love this CNC for teaching conventional milling and introduction to CNC on the same machine


  • Program easily with simple selections and prompts in plain English
  • The ProtoTRAK EMX defines the tool path for you once you define the part geometry
