A History of Innovation
Hurco was founded on innovation...the idea that innovation is a continual process to improve technology and find new ways to increase efficiency. Hurco has more than 80 patents for machine tool control technology. Additionally, we invented conversational programming, which revolutionized the machine tool industry because it was an alternative to cumbersome G-codes and M-codes. The difference between conversational programming and NC programming has been compared to the difference between Windows and the old DOS interface of the first personal computers.
Our latest innovation, UltiMotion, simultaneously reduces cycle time and improves surface finish qualty. UltiMotion uses software-based motion versus conventional hardware-based motion to achieve spectacular results.
