Hurco CNC Mill

Year: Newest - Oldest

In 1997, Hurco introduced the VMX series of CNC 3-axis mills, which is still produced today. In 2003, the VM Series was launched as general purpose CNC Mills and 5-axis VTXU CNC machining centers were introduced. You may find a used Hurco mill in the TM series with slant-bed lathes built in 2004. This was when the TM series was launched.

Used Hurco CNC Mill

Hurco was founded in 1958 by Gerald Roch and Edward Humston. Mr. Roche grew up around a tool and die shop and had a passion for building things. When computers began to emerge in the 1960s, even though they were large and cumbersome, Mr. Roch envisioned them working with machines. He obtained patents for interactive control technology which was later called conversational programing. The Hurco CNC mill is known for easy to learn and easy to use programming.

Hurco Acquisitions

In 2015, Hurco acquired two machine tool builder companies, Milltronics and Takumi. In recent years, these brands carry Hurco mill turn control features.

Hurco Machining Centers: 5-Axis CNC Machining Centers

Hurco 5-axis CNC machining centers give you access to all five sides of a prismatic workpiece, eliminates additional setups, and can be justified for a wide range of applications. When your parts are complex, or when you need to reduce setup time for pieces that require multiple setups on a 3-axis CNC, a 5-axis Hurco machining center can make a big difference. Machine shops justify buying a 5-axis based on dramatic reductions in total setup time, machine time, and reduced fixturing.

Even if you dont need 5-axis yet, you can increase your profit margins on parts made currently on a 3-axis. The 5-axis Hurco CNC mill has conversational programming for features on 5-sided parts. This programming doesnt require a CAM system, which makes it more intuitive that many other brands of 5-axis CNC machines.
