Used ProtoTRAK 1630 with tool changer

Used ProtoTRAK 1630 with SLX CNC control and 4 position auto tool changer

The ProtoTRAK 1630 SLX is a feature rich tool room lathe.  It combines the simplicity of manual machining with the contouring and threading ability of CNC.  It works like an advanced DRO in manual mode easily adding chamfers, radii, and tapers, or as a complicated CNC turning center with auto tool path routing when programmed using the intuitive ProtoTRAK control.

This machine includes the following factory options: Advanced Features, Tailstock, Coolant, 4 position programmable tool changer, and ‘Traking’ which allows the user to handwheel jog the CNC through a program at whatever speed they choose to proof it out at, a great safety feature! Also includes a 8″ BTC 3 jaw chuck, but no tooling or toolpost.

The machine has seen very low hours and is in great condition.  First sold in 2006.  Only know issue is surface staining on ways due to a reaction with coolant, purely cosmetic and clearly pictured for your review.  Spindle and servos sound like a new machine.

ProtoTRAK 1630, an easy to use CNC lathe with the added safety of Traking, this lathe will sell fast, very very rare to get a used one.  Offering it at $23.5K as pictured, FOB San Diego.  Questions welcome.
