The XYZ RLX 555 Lathe

TRAKing on XYZ ProTURN Lathes

Introducing: The ProtoTRAK RX

Machine Features


The latest generation of ProtoTRAK RLX control provides maximum operator productivity particularly on one-off components or small batches. Even an operator with no previous CNC experience will be producing simple or complex parts within hours.


Heavy tailstock with two clamp points prevents movement when machining components between centres. Repostioning is effortless and is achieved by providing an air cushion that lifts the tailstock from the bed (not on the XYZ ProTURN RLX 1630).


Built and guarded to comply with the latest CE regulations to ensure complete operator safety. When closed and in full CNC operation the easy lift, totally enclosed guard, ensures water tight containment of swarf and coolant.

Saddle & Apron

The apron moves with the saddle and emulates the actions of a manual lathe. This brings reassuring familiarity to the first time user of a CNC Lathe, and a joy stick provides for rapid positioning.


The headstock is built using Japanese induction hardened and precision ground gears. Two precision taper roller bearings and a support journal bearing ensure spindle rigidity and concentricity. High pressure oil lubrication is provided to all gears and bearings via a pump and oil cooler ensuring thermal stability, quiet running and long life.

Swarf Tray

Front opening easy access Swarf Tray makes light work of swarf removal and reduces the amount of space required at the rear of the machine.


Proturn Lathes are standard with TRAKing which allows the operator to wind the handwheel and the machine moves through the program. The faster you wind the faster it machines. Stop or reverse the handwheel and the machine does the same.

Cast Bed Base

Unlike most other Lathes that are cast or fabricated in two or three pieces and then bolted together, the Proturn RLX is a one piece solid ribbed casting that provides weight and rigidity ensuring unrivalled precision. The extra wide ‘Vee and flat’ bed way provides a large bearing surface that makes other Lathes seem flimsy by comparison. The lower cost RLX 1630 does not have a single piece casting.
