Southwestern Industries’ Trak machines are said to increase productivity in shops that engage in small-lot or high-mix/low-volume work. Products designed for the former application include the Trak family of knee mills, bed mills, lathes and knee mill retrofits. Machines designed for the latter application include the Trak 2OP portable VMC and Trak LPM vertical machining center, both of which contain built-in Jergens ball locks to facilitate quick change-overs.

All Trak machines feature powerful but easy-to-learn ProtoTrak CNCs that reduce setup times and provide for increased workforce flexibility, the company says.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.
