Southwestern Industries (Booth 331) will showcase the Trak 2OP portable machining center designed for secondary machining operations. The machine can streamline a shop’s workflow by bringing an additional spindle quickly and easily to an operator, and can reduce overall cycle/throughput times by performing the secondary operation within the cycle time of the primary operation. Labor use can be improved because an operator who is idled by the cycle time of his primary machine can simultaneously run a CNC secondary operation machine. In addition, product planning/scheduling can be reduced by having parts completed before they leave the work center.

The Trak 2OP features a 2.5 × 4-foot footprint and an eight-station automatic tool changer, and it can run G-code. ProtoTrak CNC technology offers conversational language programming that is easy to learn and use. Programs can be generated either at the machine or remotely to perform tasks normally associated with secondary operations.
