Hurco Open House announced

Added to MTDCNC by Hurco Europe Ltd on 07 November 2014

'New Opportunities' is the main theme for the forthcoming Hurco open house, taking place from 9th to 11th December at the UK head office in High Wycombe. Several new machines are being brought in to the demonstration area specifically for the exhibition.

The result will be a display of eight machines representing the best selling models within Hurco’s ranges of vertical machining centres and turning centres. A strong bias will be shown towards 5-axis applications, as this is the fastest growing area within the Hurco product programme.

David Waghorn, managing director commented, 'There has been an exceptionally high volume of machine sales throughout 2014 and there are now more than 3,000 Hurco machines in operation in the UK. 'Our open houses are seen as an opportunity to bring these existing customers up to date with the latest software developments, but equally, we will be show-casing the flexibility of our control to business owners viewing the Hurco range for the first time. 'Machine demonstrations will focus primarily on two new features. Adaptipath, which controls cutter engagement when machining pockets and includes a rest machining feature, allowing parts to be cut faster while extending tool life, and Ultimotion high speed machining software, which allows a machine to run faster and more smoothly, with up to 50 per cent time savings reported for some complex parts.

The eight machines on display will be TMM8i and TM12i turning centres, VM10i, VM20i, VMX42Ti and VMX60Ti vertical machining centres, and 5-axis models, VMX30Ui and VMX42HSRTi. The latter, a new, 18,000 rpm HSK63A version of the popular VMX42SRTi, will be on show for the first time in the UK. It represents the highest performance level that is currently available within the range, incorporating a B axis in the machine head and a torque motor driven C axis for part rotation.

Large and complex 5 axis components can be produced in a relatively compact footprint. This year, the supplier village will further increase in size. Renishaw, Roemheld, Kitagawa, SGS Carbide, Gewefa, MacInnes Tooling, PCM Tooling, Delcam, Hydrafeed and Open Mind (hyperMILL) will all be represented. In addition, Hurco is pleased to welcome Horn Tools, specialists in grooving technology, CADCAM specialists Edgecam, Anotronic, which will be displaying the new River 3 EDM drill, and Finance For Industry, which will be able to advise on RGF (Regional Growth Fund) grant applications, Funding for Lending subsidies and the best methods of taking advantage of the current, very generous rules for capital allowances.
