Microweily Proturn RLX 1630 Combination Manual / CNC Lathe

Note: Machine images shown with SLX control.

Capacity, capability & value! After the first day you will wonder why you ever used a manual lathe.
400mm swing, 54mm bore, 760mm centres, 2500rpm

In 1995 ProtoTRAK introduced the simple to program and use ProtoTRAK conversational control for a Lathe (Proturn) and revolutionised the production of small batch and one off turned parts. The latest RLX ProtoTRAK offers more power and features whilst retaining the original simplicity. If you are looking for an edge over your competition, or you need flexibility and speed on the shop floor then ProtoTRAK really is the answer.

The Proturn RLX1630 has capacity, capability and value!
A 15.6" touchscreen, tool library management, and Delta servo drives are a few of the many improvements, and after the first day you will wonder why you ever used a manual lathe.

Electronic Handwheels allow in manual operation the Handwheel to be switched between course and fine, as well it has the advantage of the handwheels not spinning around when in automatic mode.

The powerful TRAKing feature of the ProtoTRAK RLX CNC comes in that you no longer have to choose between the efficiency of CNC and manual control. With TRAKing, you don't have to go through the process of proving out the CNC programme before you press the Go button. You can run the CNC program at the speed at which you crank the handwheel. Go fast, go slow, stop and take a measurement, go backwards, whatever. You are in complete control as the machine moves the tooling through the programmed coordinates.

Microweily is one of the original Taiwanese machine tool companies with a history of over 30 years manufacturing both CNC and high speed precision conventional lathes.

The selected lathe has the excellent inherent design features listed below to provide the rigidity and accuracy necessary to perform heavy duty machining for all multi purpose engineering applications:
The slide ways between the saddle and bed are Turcite coated to provide, reducing the friction resistance, saving on power consumption and providing smoother machine operation.
Cross slide induction hardened HRC 52 and precision ground
Hardened and precision ground gears and bed-way
One piece solid cast iron base
Delta AC servo drives & brushless motors
15.6" Touchscreen
Bed Width of 320mm
