Hurco Companines Inc.


The Hurco BX40Ui 5-axis CNC double-column machining center, with integrated trunnion table along the Y-axis, combines performance and flexibility. The ladder structure and double-column design provide rigidity and support the head casting. With an 18K motorized spindle and oversized linear guide rollers, the BX40Ui handles a range of applications. Additionally, the bridge structure is isolated from part weight and operates in a stable and predictable manner. High cutting feed rates are achieved with UltiMotion high-speed motion technology that simultaneously reduces cycle times by up to 30% and delivers high surface finish quality. The Solid Model Import feature of the Hurco control makes programming easier for high-mix shops that manufacture smaller quantities of parts.

Hurco distributor Brooks Associates will demonstrate Hurco 5-axis technology at EASTEC Booth #1206.
