Prototrak K3 CNC Kneemill

This machine was installed summer 2011 and funded by a generous gift to the Picker Engineering Program from the Branta Foundation. This is a 2 axis Mill that can either be used manually like a bridgeport mill, or in CNC mode. It is easy to design programs right on the machine, or it can import Gcode programs from a CAM package.


Mill Highlights

  • Very easy to use (for a skilled machinist!)
  • Conversational programming on the machine, or Gcode
  • 2 axis CNC, 3 axis DRO
  • A bit larger than a bridgeport, helpful for large parts
  • The CDF staff will help you get your part machined
