Programming the ProtoTRAK RMX

Powerful and always easy

Programming the ProtoTRAK RMX is simply a matter of choosing the geometry from among the canned cycles and then answering the prompts one by one. Everything is in plain language with no codes for you to memorize.


Programming is a simple process of selecting the Event and then describing the geometry from print data. You may program prints or just write simple programs for single operations... it's that easy.

Adaptive Machining with the ProtoTRAK RMX CNC

Adaptive Machining saves machining time and preserves your tools and parts by keeping them cooler throughout the whole process. Other benefits include the ability to engage all or most of the cutter and have a continuous full chip load which will give you a better finish/cut.
