Developed with the aim of creating a better, easier and faster machine tool control system, the ProtoTRAK RMX and RLX controls for mills and lathes have over 24 new features, including new hardware and software, plus a 15.6” touch-screen, all of which lead to being able to go from drawing to finished component much faster than before.

“We had a very busy show with enquiries up 20% on the previous year,” says Martin Burton, XYZ machine tools’ sales and service director. “These enquiries were a mix of those companies coming to look at specific machines that they are in the market for and strong interest in the new RMX ProtoTRAK control, the demonstration of which on the stand drew many positive comments.”

By adding the 15.6” touchscreen to the ProtoTRAK control, users now have all functions at their fingertips and the upgrades to the software, such as the Enhanced ProtoTRAK Assistance (EPA) feature, which provides instant access to in-depth on-screen assistance at any point in the programming/operating procedure, extends ProtoTRAK’s existing advantage by further simplifying programming and machine utilisation.

Further support is provided by the addition of new machining strategies within the control to deliver advanced performance benefits

Those not attending Southern manufacturing can contact XYZ Machine Tools for a demonstration of the new ProtoTRAK control at any of its showrooms around the country or, if more convenient, have an onsite, desktop demo, where a member of the XYZ team will bring an actual control to a company’s location.
