INDIANAPOLIS—Hurco machine tools will be exhibited at three EASTEC booths at the annual show that will be held in West Springfield, Mass., May 14-16. Hurco distributor Brooks Associates will exhibit the 5-axis VM10Ui mill and the mill turn TMM8i at Booth 1205; CCAT will exhibit the Hurco 5-axis VMX30Ui at Booth 1354, and Greenleaf will showcase the 3-axis VM10i mill at Booth 5317. All of the machines feature the new design Hurco introduced at IMTS 2012. While the sleek exterior design of the Hurco machines with the new Hurco logo is the most noticeable difference from the classic Hurco machine tools, the inclusion of UltiMotion is the most significant technological difference. UltiMotion is only available on Hurco mills, both 3-axis and 5-axis. This patented feature reduces cycle time by up to 30% and significantly increases surface finish quality.
The 5-Axis VM10Ui (Brooks Machinery Booth 1205) has X/Y/Z travels of 21x16x19, X/Y/Z rapids of 945 inches per minute, a 20-station ATC, and the integrated Hurco control that supports both ISO/EIA NC programming and conversational programming. For customers who don’t have simultaneous 5-axis work right now, the Hurco 5-axis machines include 5-sided conversational programming that instantly makes each part more profitable. The inherent technology of the Hurco 5-axis machining centers minimizes the number of setups, eliminates scrap with powerful verification graphics, and delivers superb surface finish with advanced smoothing algorithms.
The TMM8i mill turn, slant-bed lathe with live tooling has X-axis travels of 7.8 inches and Z-axis travels of 20 inches, a maximum turning diameter of 10.1 inches, a maximum turning length of 17.9 inches, and a maximum bar capacity of 2 inches.
