    INDIANAPOLIS—The benefits of a 5-axis vertical machining center go beyond simultaneous 5-axis work that requires a CAM system. More shops are realizing greater profit margins on existing parts by converting to a 5-sided machining process using a 5-axis machine instead of using a conventional 3-axis VMC.


    The VMX30U 5-axis machining center by Hurco features X/Y/Z travels of 30 x 20 x 20.5 and a 24-tool ATC. As with all Hurco machine tools, the true advantage of the VMX30U resides within the control technology. Not only does the integrated Hurco control have both NC and conversational, with full NC support, you can program 5-sided parts at the control with conversational programming—no CAM system needed. Features, such as Universal Rotary, Transform Plane, Tool Path Linearization, Tool Center Point Management, and an intuitive graphical user interface are just a few of the control features that increase productivity and usability.


    The VM10U, with X/Y/Z travels of 21 x 16 x 19 is a smaller version of the VMX30U, but just as powerful. Its small footprint and large work cube make it especially popular when space is at a premium.
