Over 40 Years Of Machine Tool 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. You will find Hurco innovation in all of our machines from turning centers, mill turns, heavy duty lathes, large dual column mills, vertical and horizontal machining centers, or our 5-axis machines.
When you buy a piece of equipment that you rely on for your livelihood, service AFTER the sale is critical. According to our customers, the Hurco Service/Support Team is the best in the industry!
The knowledge and customer support from Hurco is outstanding. I think you have the best service network I’ve seen in my 40-year career. - Dave Bernhardt, Nucon
I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to us, as you know we are a small shop and you treated us like your # 1 customer, and you stood by your product and made things right. That goes a long way with me and I appreciate it. - David Parmelee, Wepco Plastics

INDIANAPOLIS—The Hurco 5-axis VMX42SR has multiple benefits for mold shops, especially shops that manufacture deep cavity molds or tall core molds. The VMX42SR uses a rotary table and swivel head that allows the tool to tilt and rotate, which promotes the use of shorter tools instead of long, skinny tools that a typical 3-axis machine requires. When using long tools, the machinist has to decrease the feed rates to prevent tool breakage and minimize chatter. With stouter, shorter tools used on the 5-axis VMX42SR, the machinist can push faster with increased feed rates and take heavier cuts. The ability to use shorter tooling with the VMX42SR also reduces the deflection of the tool, increases surface finish quality, significantly reduces the need to polish the mold, and eliminates the need for EDM operations in many cases.
