Southwestern Industries’ Trak 2OP portable machining center streamlines workflow by bringing an additional spindle to an operator for secondary machining operations. With the mobile unit, secondary operations can be performed nearby within the cycle time of the primary operation, reducing overall cycle and throughput times. According to the company, the machining center improves labor utilization and reduces product planning and scheduling difficulties, as workpieces are completed before they leave the workcenter.

The portable machining center offers a compact 2.5 × 4-ft. footprint and is equipped with an eight-station toolchanger. The machine uses ProtoTrak CNC technology for conversational programming and is also capable of running G code. Programs can be generated at the machine or remotely.

    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.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?

    The recipe for best results is simple: Start with a rigid machine, add a high pressure through-the-spindle coolant system, then combine these with the right drill geometry plus the right speeds and feeds.
