CNC lathe - Hurco TM Series

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​CNC Lathes for General Purpose Turning

The small footprint, large work cube, chip management system, and an affordable price tag of our slant-bed CNC lathe machines​ make small-batch manufacturing profitable​.​

​​​​​​

CNC Lathe Overview​

The TM CNC lathe machines are designed for general purpose CNC turning applications and provide an easy transition from manual turning or milling.           

  • Design + Construction: We use thick-walled, fine-grain cast iron for the major structural assemblies (base, headstock, and cross slide). The rigid one-piece machine base casting is designed to yield excellent static and dynamic performance in addition to outstanding dampening properties that inhibit thermal deformation and twisting. The box type cross slide ensures the turret remains rigid and stable even during the most rigorous cycles. We also use large linear guideways that are strategically spaced to provide excellent support to the cross slide. Hydraulic Turret: The slotted tool turret is designed to provide fast and accurate tool indexes. You can use any combination of ID and OD tool holders. The turret uses a large cervic coupling for accurate location and clamping. Machining Capacity: The generous turning diameter and turning length allow a wide range of part sizes and applications.​

Premium Components + Expert Design

  • Spindle Motor and Drive: The spindles on the Hurco TM series of slant-bed CNC lathes utilize poly-V belts, which are ideal for turning. The spindle speed ranges have been engineered for the best metal removal rate for a given chuck size, up to 6,000 rpm. We use precision steel bearings packed with lifetime grease, which results in maintenance-free lubrication. The brushless, AC motor drives the spindle and delivers impressive power and torque.
  • Guide ways: The guide mechanism for the axes is fitted with precision linear ball rails. Our linear rails are built with the same precision grinding technology used in the manufacture of bearings because this technology provides superior acceleration and deceleration performance at full load-carrying capacity in all directions. Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) technology, the size and spacing of the linear ball rails have been carefully matched to the CNC lathe machine’s static (precision boring) and dynamic (cutting and traversing) operating requirements. Each bearing block is independently and automatically lubricated to promote a long life.
  • Ball Screws: For feed drive elements, Hurco only uses premium, quality designed, pre-tensioned ball screws. With up to 98% efficiency, the re-circulating ball nut ensures low friction power transmission from the screw to the slide. This guarantees the combination of high accuracy, high rapid traverse rates, and high feed thrust. Large diameter X-axis and Z-axis double nut ball screws are hardened and ground, centered between the guideways, and anchored at both ends with pre-loaded ABEC-7 precision class angular contact thrust bearings. This combination prevents backlash and provides outstanding positioning repeatability with virtually no thermal growth.
  • Axis Drives: To maintain a leading edge in motion control technology all ball screws are driven by Yaskawa or Rexroth servo systems with closed-loop adaptive tuning and high-resolution feedback to obtain the utmost in system performance and reliability. The AC servo motors are direct-coupled to the ball screws for the highest level of accuracy. The brushless AC servo drive motors provide high torque to inertia ratio for the axis drives. The X and Z axis motors deliver impressive torque for peak thrust during heavy cuts.​
