Hurco CNC Milling Machines
are available for sale from many different dealers in the UK. Hurco CNC Mills are a popular choice among precision engineers in the domestic market. Not only do they provide a precision milling solution, they are also very competitively priced.

There is approximately 10,000 precision sub-contract engineers in the UK and at least 70% of these will own a CNC Milling Machine. Prismatic milling is a fundamental part of engineering thus the demand for these type of CNC Mills is high. Hurco manufacture CNC Milling Machines for global consumption, so it's not just in the UK you will find users of Hurco CNC Mills.

Over recent years Hurco CNC Milling Machines have evolved to offer toolchangers, high speed spindles, high performance control systems and automated features that allow for checking and measuring of components, these are called tool probes and measuring probes.

Reliability is always a factor when buying a used Hurco CNC Mill, as with any machine tool purchase there is always a slight risk involved, the key here is to strike a deal with the supplier and make sure you have a warranty on the Milling Machine when it's purchased.

As technology changes, the ability of milling machining processes improves, over recent times Hurco CNC Mills have added new control systems and features that help the machinist program and perform complex operations. Popular controls systems on Hurco CNC Mills include

Heidenhain Control Systems on Hurco CNC Mills

Heidenhain TC130
Heidenhain TC360
Heidenhain TNC426
Heidenhain TNC530

Siemens controls systems on Hurco CNC Milling Machines

Siemens 810D
Siemens 820D
Siemens Shopmill

The control is a very important aspect of the machine as it can improve surface finish, cycle times and component accuracy. Using a superior control such as a Heidenhain will deliver better results than a low-cost Hurco control for example.

There are many different models of Hurco CNC Milling Machines, we list below some of the most popular

Hurco VM1
Hurco VM2
Hurco VM3
Hurco VM10
Hurco VMX
Hurco VMC

Now as we enter very competitive times, cycle times are becoming ever more important. If you can make a part faster than anybody else you're sure to win the business. Hurco CNC Mills have a reputation for delivering top quality parts for all types of industries including Aerospace, Automotive, Toolmaking, Oil and Gas and many more.

The cost of Hurco CNC Milling Machines varies alot dependant on the specification, size and age. CNC Mills over twenty years old should really be avoided as they may not offer the same level of accuracy and speed as a newer model.

Contouring is now becoming a popular machining function, this is when two or three axis move at the same time to produce a smooth radius on a part, using older Hurco CNC Mills will make it difficult to perform such operations. Ideally you need a CNC Mill with a control system such as a Heidenhain 426 or 530 or the Siemens 820D. This is due to the look ahead function and inferior control, old controls simply won't cope.

All in all Hurco CNC Milling machines are good value, reliable and popular, they have been around for many years and served many engineers well. If you search dealers in the UK you will always find Hurco Mills for sale as dealers like to stock them because they sell well.

There are plenty of other makes and models of CNC Milling Machines, some of which offer just simple NC controls or DRO (Digital Readouts). These machines serve a purpose and do a job, however they are for more simple operations such as drilling, tapping, face milling etc, more positional machining.
