Learning the ProtoTRAK®

Even if your people have never used a CNC before, they will be able to learn the ProtoTRAK in just a few hours. From the first day you own it, your people will discover that it is easier to make parts with a ProtoTRAK than it is to use manual machining methods. They’ll quickly find, like thousands of machinists before them, that the effort to learn the ProtoTRAK will pay off in job satisfaction.

Easy to Learn and Use Conversational Language

Program the ProtoTRAK EMX by making simple selections and answering prompts in plain English. Unlike conventional CNCs, you define only the part geometry; the ProtoTRAK EMX defines the tool path for you.

DRO Routines

The most useful features of a DRO are available in a crystal clear color display. While working manually in the DRO mode, let the servo motors do the most of the work by pressing the Power Feed and Jog buttons. When you need manual control, ball screws provide smooth, positive control while hand cranking.

Program Storage

Handling programs is easy with the simple, clear choices of the ProtoTRAK. An internal flash drive lets you save hundreds of typical programs. A USB port is available to plug in a storage device for backing up programs and moving programs between ProtoTRAKs and computers. The optional USB thumb drive is convenient to use and comes configured to work with the ProtoTRAK.
