WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED OPERATING TEMPERATURE FOR MY HURCO MACHINE TOOL  

​This article applies to:
BMC Series
UltiMax Controls and Software 
UltiMax
VMX Series

Answer:
Hurco Machining Centers that are not equipped with the air conditioning option may be operated in ambient temperatures up to 95 F or 35 C, with a relative humidity (non-condensing) up to 95%. If you are going to operate the Machining Center in an enviroment that exceeds the above it is recommended that you purchase the air conditioning option.
Note: Linear positioning accuracy of the machine tool was set at the factory, in an ambient temperature of 68 F (20 C). Continual operation at higher or lower temperatures may require that you re-compensate the linear positioning accuracy.
Tips for reducing heat build up:
Set your machine tool away from external heat sources, such as:
a window that lets direct sunlight hit the electrical cabinet for long periods
a heater that directs firced air onto the electrical cabinet
any type of heat source close to the electrical cabinet.
