The Hurco Control Makes 5-Axis Make Sense…
Many shop owners think they don’t have parts that warrant the investment in a 5-axis CNC machining center or they think they would have to buy a CAM system. Even if you don’t have simultaneous 5-axis work, you’ll increase the profitability of the parts you are cutting on your 3-axis machines when you use 5-sided machining on a Hurco 5-axis machining center—and you won’t need to buy a CAM system!
Why Hurco for 5-sided programming?
The Hurco control simplifies programming so you can program right at the control using our conversational programming. We have numerous customers who only had 3-axis experience and they were running parts on their new 5-axis Hurco before the training sessions even started. When we say, “Nobody gets you from print to part faster than Hurco,” we mean it.
What about simultaneous 5-axis?
If your shop is already doing full 5-axis (simultaneous 5-axis), our control has the processing power and memory to handle your NC programs. Equally important, we keep the control up-to-date with CAM packages so you don’t have to worry about compatibility.
But you’ll also find 5-axis features in our control that actually improve NC programs. For example, Tool Path Linearization significantly improves surface finish quality because it removes the looping motion that creates tool marks on the part caused by CAM interpolation—and it also reduces the size of NC programs.
To learn more about the 5-axis features of the Hurco control, simply click on a picture in the carousel above and the text appears in the box to the right. Pay special attention to features denoted as Hurco Exclusive or 5-Star—these ratings were assigned by our Applications Engineers, based on their industry/machining expertise and customer input.
