Horizontal Machining Center Hurco HM1700Ri

​​​​​​​​​​​Horizontal Mills designed for maximum efficiency.

These economical, 3-axis and 4-axis  large travel horizontal CNC milling machines have an 8,000 rpm motorized spindle that is equipped for both high and low-end torque operations. The large, front and side access doors provide maximum operator efficiency. With fast rapids, large work cube, smart frame design, and UltiMotion technology, complex production parts can be CNC machined efficiently and accurately. Hurcos' horizontal milling machines increase shop productivity with a rotary torque table, such as the table added to the smart design of the HM1700i CNC machining center.​

Premium Components Increase Performance

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used to evaluate structural rigidity, torsional stiffness, thermal characteristics, and natural frequency to achieve the best frame design. Critical with today’s high velocities and accelerations - machine performance must be carefully optimized in order to maintain part quality.  

Yaskawa Sigma V Digital Drives:      
Hurco uses state-of-the-art premium servos and drives from Yaskawa, the world’s largest manufacturer of motors and drives. They provide enhanced vibration suppression and feature higher speed acceleration and deceleration. 
  • 625 millisecond velocity loop frequency response time (1.6 kHz)
  • Encoders: 1,048,576 counts per revolution
30 Station ATC: The 30 station ATC is side-mounted with a 3.7 second tool-to-tool ATC time. Hurco uses an electric tool changer with 4.7” max tool diameter and a 44 lb. max tool weight. The tool changer is random access.
