Machines & Demos
VMX42SWi 5-Axis Machining Center – We will showcase head porting and head machining with a demonstration from our customer Mast Motorsports, also an exhibitor at PRI (booth 3128).
The Hurco VMX42SWi is a sophisticated 5-axis machine that utilizes a swivel head for the B-axis with travels of +/- 90 degrees and a rotary table for the A-axis. The VMX42SWi has X/Y/Z travels of 42” x 24” x 24”, a 12,000 RPM dual-wound Yaskawa spindle motor, fast 1,378 ipm rapid traverse rates (X and Y axes), larger linear rails that are wedge locked and mounted to a machined shoulder to increase rigidity, and a 40-station swing-arm automatic tool changer (ATC). Equipped with UltiMotion and the Hurco MAX5 control, which is the most flexible control in the industry because it is equally powerful for conversational programming or Industry Standard NC.
TM6i Slant-Bed Lathe - We will be machining AN fittings on our most popular CNC lathe. The TM6i features a 45-degree true slant-bed cast design in addition to an extra wide saddle and large Z-axis rails that further maximize rigidity. We also strategically spaced the linear guide ways to increase support to the cross slide and made sure this general purpose lathe was designed with a generous turning diameter and turning length.
HTM30i Toolroom Mill – Just introduced in September, the Hurco HTM30i features an open-bed design that provides easy access to the table. Also called a toolroom mill, this entry level machine includes all of the technology power of the MAX5 control. See our gear demo on the HTM30i.
CNC Honing – Hurco customer and technology partner Bates Technologies will be at our booth to demonstrate CNC honing. Hurco and Bates debuted the CNC Machining/Honing technology at PRI last year. Machine in the morning. Hone in the afternoon!
The unique advantage of Hurco CNC machines is the flexibility of the control because it empowers the machinist to determine the most efficient way to program the part whether it be CAD/CAM and Industry Standard NC, or Conversational Programming. This type of flexibility is especially valuable for the racing industry, according to the machinist at IndyCar’s Ed Carpenter Racing, because the machinist can program the part right at the control with conversational programming and rely on the sophisticated verification graphics to prove out the part before cutting. The machinist at John Force Racing (JFR) relies on CAD/CAM for most of the parts they manufacture at Force American Made. JFR’s machinists say the Hurco control is advantageous to them due to its powerful technical specifications: 4GB RAM Memory / 128GB Solid State Hard Drive / 2.7GHz Dual Core Processor / Up to 4,000 bps processing speed.
At Hurco, we are focused on helping our customers be more productive and more profitable by delivering rigid, reliable CNC machines equipped with a control that lets them get the job done right the first time. Make more chips with Hurco!

Hurco brought the spirit of Indianapolis, the location of the company’s worldwide headquarters since its founding in 1968, to McCormick Place for IMTS 2016.
Since Indianapolis is home to the single largest one-day sporting event, the Indianapolis 500, we created a scaled down version of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Visitors to our booth raced RC IndyCars around the track and those who visited us onTuesday had the chance to race IndyCar owner/driver Ed Carpenter. Hurco is a proud sponsor of Ed Carpenter Racing (ECR), which is also based out of Indianapolis.
