|* 18" swing x 40 " travel

The TRAK TRL 1840 CSS gives you flexibility and simplicity
on a CNC lathe useful for production as well as toolroom
Features such as Constant Surface Speed, generous cross
slide travel and sliding protective door make this model ideal
for low production. At the same time, the TRAK TRL 1840 CSS is
designed to be easy to use manually for making tooling,
prototypes and other parts needed in very small quantities.
A Unique Combination of CNC Technology and Manual
Flexibility That Makes Every Turning Job Easier...
...Easier to use manually than a conventional lathe,
even for basic facing and grooving.
- Servo jog controlled by jog switch.
- Tool data is applied to manual operations to
eliminate the need to set references every time a tool is
- Go To - a simple input sets a dimension in X, Z
or both. You can then machine manually and the
control will not let you go past the Go To dimension
you set, but will allow you to forget about watching the DRO
for your dimension.
- Convenient Powerfeed routines for smooth cuts
along X or Z.
- Spindle speed selection and tool changes are the same as
for a manual machine.
...A lot easier
than a conversational lathe for more complicated turning
- Canned cycles for: drilling, turning,
threading, boring, contouring, roughing
- Reduced manual set-ups.
- No need for special attachments and
...Easier than any other CNC to
understand and program.
- All your system interface is in plain language -
no codes of any kind.
- Geometry-based part programming - more natural
than the tool-path programming of other CNC's.
- Cycle - a powerful routine where you enter your
part geometry and the size of your material and the roughing
and finishing tool paths are generated for you.
- Tool compensation is easy and is automatically
applied - no need to turn it on and off.
- Prompted data inputs - eliminates errors and
- All functions are organized into modes to
eliminate the need to memorize "computer" procedures.
- Clear, consistent screen organization eliminates
confusion because you don't have to search the screen for
the information or prompts you
...Easier to use as a
- Program Run like a CNC, with prompts provided for
tool changes, etc.
- Screen graphics let you see your part before you
- Easy tool offset modifications to "sneak up" on
- TRAKing - at the press of a button during the CNC
program run, you control the feedrate for your program by
turning the handwheel - speed up, slow down,
back away, make multiple passes, whatever you
see fit - you are in control, not the CNC.
