Microweily Proturn SLX 1630 Combination Manual / CNC Lathe

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 SLX 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 SLX1630 has capacity, capability and value! After the first day you will wonder why you ever used a manual lathe.
