Hurco CNC Machine Tools - The WinMax Control

WinMax® Software | Conversational + NC Programming

Just like you, Hurco engineers are focused on continual improvement—they are driven to develop control
technology that will make your business more profitable. All of our new i-series machines have WinMax with lots of new features and UltiMotion.​


WinMax New Features

  • DXF Scaling: Lets you scale DXF drawings to actual size—you don’t have redraw them or go back to the CAD system.
  • FastDraw Graphics Engine: Due to technological advancements, the new engine we use to run the verification graphics is almost seven times faster than the previous version.
  • Font Magnification (NC only): Lets you increase the size of any installed font for easier reading.
  • Mill Frame with Enhanced Corner Geometry: Lets you define the type of corner, the angle, the length, and/or the radius.
  • Multiple Options to Store Tool Probing Results: Lets you store results in Conversational Field, G-Code Length/Radius Offset Tables or Both.
  • Program Edit Lockout: Gives you complete control: set the level of access for programs and parameters, including Full Lockout or Partial Lockout.
  • Roughing Stock Allowance: Lets you specify stock allowance with or without a finishing operation. If the Z finish allowance is zero, only the walls will be finished.
  • Stick Lettering: Mill letters and numbers in quick tool centerline toolpath. Lets you orient the letters at any angle and wrap about a cylinder.
  • Tool Life Management: Messages appear in real time to alert you that a tool has reached its maximum cutting time.
  • UltiMotion: Patented motion control system that simultaneously reduces cycle time by more than 30 percent and improves surface finish.
  • TrueType® Fonts Along a Contour:allows the operator to specify a contour that the lettering blocks will be swept along.
  • WinMax Desktop Complete: Has the ability to simulate both the single screen and the dual screen control. Simulates multiple machine modes, including Dry Run, Auto Run, Manual Mode, and RecoveryRestart.
  • Z Offset Shift: Lets you shift the Z offset without modifying the original Part Z Work Coordinate setting.
