XYZ Machine Tools will present its new ProtoTRAK LPM (Lean Production Machine), the first ProtoTRAK-equipped machine tool to be fitted with an automatic tool changer. The ATC can hold up to 16 tools and this 15 hp/8000 rev/min BT40 vertical spindle machine has axis travels in X, Y and Z of 785, 470 and 530mm respectively, with rapid feeds in all three axes of 20m/min.

The LPM has a number of features in addition to the 'plain English' programming of its ProtoTRAK control system that differentiate it from a standard vertical machining centre. The most significant is the integral ball lock system machined into its 900 by 500mm table, which provides a highly repeatable and accurate workholding mechanism.
