Southwestern lndustries specializes in engineering, manufacturing, and distributing turning and milling equipment for low volume work. Our product lines include TRAK bed and knee mills, lathes, retrofit products and the LPM machining center - all of which feature the powerful but easy to learn and use ProtoTRAK CNC. We understand that low volume work, including prototypes, tooling, fixtures, molds, and repairs is different from production work. Solutions that are good for production environments are not suitable for non-production work.
This year at WESTEC we will be showcasing our 3D Printer + TRAK 2op production cell. Our powerful 3D printer with three extruders and an open source materials platform is perfect for prototyping. The TRAK 2op is the first CNC machine ever to focus on Second Operations. The portable machine helps to streamline a shop’s workflow by bringing an additional spindle quickly and easily to an operator idled by the cycle time of his primary machine.
