Prototrak 1440 CNC Lathe

This machine was installed summer 2009 and funded by a generous gift to the Picker Engineering Program from the Branta Foundation. This lathe can be programmed at the machine to turn most any part. It’s also very easy and productive to use in manual mode. A wonderful upgrade to our lathe operations.
