​Hurco to Exhibit HSM Mill at amerimold 2013   

Published: 4/11/2013

INDIANAPOLIS—Hurco will showcase its high-speed VMX42HSi mill at amerimold (Booth 247) that will be held in Rosemont, Ill., June 12-13. With direct drive servos, an 18K integral spindle, and X/Y/Z travels of 42/24/24 inches, the VMX42HSi is equipped with premium components to handle the rigors of high speed machining. The Automatic Tool Changer supports HSK tooling and has a chip-to-chip time of 4.5 seconds. The air-over-oil spindle lubrication distributes oil evenly and prevents bearings from grease starvation.


Equipped with UltiMotion, Hurco’s patented motion control system, cycle time is reduced up to 30% while simultaneously improving surface finish quality. UltiMotion uses complex software algorithms for motion planning instead of conventional hardware, which means it optimizes look-ahead, up to 10,000 blocks.


The VMX42HSi is built to last and to retain accuracy with larger linear rails that are mounted to a machined shoulder for increased rigidity. Additionally, the rails are wedge-locked to the frame to reduce vibration instead of the faster, cheaper face-milled process.


The Hurco integrated control is optimized for the advanced tool paths generated by CAM systems with a 64-GB Solid State Drive, two gigabytes (2 GB) of memory, a 2-GHz Dual Core Intel Processor, and processing speed up to 2,277 bps.
