On this episode of the MTD Podcast, we are live from the Hurco Open house show in High Wycombe, discussing the event highlights for not only MTDCNC, but the overall main attractions at the exhibition. With the team finally recovered after a great Christmas party at the NEC on Saturday night, it was time to get back to business, and what better way than the final Open House event of the year at Hurco.
The talking points of the two-day exhibition were the technology displays and the tooling partners at the event with eleven machine tools on-show, all of which touched on the subject of automation. Over the two days, MTD CNC had an opportunity to view live demonstrations of the new BX range, which was a favourite with attendees due to its alluring design and impressive spec!
We are joined by Hurco Managing Director David Waghorn, who after another successful Open House event reveals to Gio and Paul that his personal highlight is the new solid model import software, with customers coming in specifically to see it, especially those who know about conversational programming. The software gives the user data blocks straight from an IGES file or a step file. David reveals the company’s plans to move into the distribution of 5-axis machines and so much more!
Other great guests today including Matthew Jenness from MicroLoc discussing the company’s MicroLoc Work Holding System, a versatile, expandable work holding system designed for 3 and 4axis machines, used by Hurco on their new range of machines due to its resourceful and practical designs.
We also sit down with Jamie Maclellan from Renishaw, whose products continue to play a pivotal role in Hurco’s stride towards automation and assisting with a stable working process while practising what they preach with using their own products during manufacturing.
OPEN MIND Managing Director, Adrian Smith, suppliers of the popular HyperMill software which Hurco use on their equipment, who strive to create parts created right the first time, something which they built their company on and a great addition to Hurco machines.
Martyn Page from Hydrafeed joins us to converse about the influence which open house events have on the company’s revenue and growth, and the importance of attending such shows to keep company profiles up, alongside the quick purchases that companies make at this time of year.
