The ProtoTrak RMX CNC from Southwestern Industries functions on ProtoTrak machines designed for toolroom applications. A touchscreen interface contributes to ease of use. The controller also delivers context-sensitive instructions as users require them. Bulleted text, diagrams and videos are available as well. Defaults enable users to teach the controller idiosyncratic programming and machining styles. The Auto Geometry Engine feature includes the Tap-to-Guess function, which enables users to tap a point on the on-screen drawing to approximate the beginning, end or center of a geometry. Adaptive Machining enables users to increase the metal removal rate by 500 percent or more, the company says, through the selection of programming options.
