CNC Lathes Live Tooling

​​​​ General Purpose Mill Turn CNC Lathes

The TMM turning centers are true slant-bed lathes equipped with live tooling and a programmable C-axis. The TMM live tooling lathes are the perfect way to make small to medium lot sizes that require turning and secondary milling/drilling operations profitable. Save time with one setup and you won’t lose accuracy due to refixturing.​​​


Live Tool CNC Lathes


All Hurco, mill-turn CNC lathes are built for increased rigidity with an extra-wide saddle and larger Z-axis rails. You can be assured Hurco mill-turn CNC lathes have the premium components and rigidity required.​

  • One-piece bed casting for maximum rigidity.
  • Ergonomic design features make each process more efficient.
    • Convenient front access to chuck and tailstock pressure controls.
    • Front-loading coolant tank and chip conveyor design to minimize maintenance and provide easy access.
    • The 30-degree true slant bed design promotes larger turning capacity in addition to efficient chip removal.
    • Component isolation system minimizes heat dissipation and protects the spindle head to combat spindle growth.
    • Chip management features protect internal components
    • Telescopic way covers
    • Inside door track
    • Washdown and air guns
    • ​Adjustable brass coolant nozzles
  • Premium Components
    • The VDI servo turret provides quick-change tooling and fast indexing, features large, curvic coupling for superior rigidity, and makes all stations live-tool capable.
    • The short, live-tool drive train generates less heat and provides more horsepower and torque transfer to the tool, higher reliability, and quieter operation.
  • Advanced spindle technology with high output spindle motor. Additionally, the spindle motor is strategically designed for easy access and easy maintenance.
  • Guideways: 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 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, double-nut 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 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.
