Hurco highlights programming simplicity

Software developments on the Max5 control feature will be demonstrated by Hurco at Southern Manufacturing 2020 on a TM8i two-axis CNC lathe.

The Max5’s 19-inch, colour touchscreen control has always been popular, because of the ease with which a first-off part can be programmed. In addition, the latest Solid model import option, capable of reducing programming time even further, will be demonstrated. The new XP model enhancements mean that concurrent programming, improved graphics and roller guideways are now standard features.

The TM8i two-axis CNC lathe turns parts up to 356mm in diameter, 525mm long, and is suited to bar work up to 64mm in diameter. The slant-bed lathe is supplied as standard with a six-inch hydraulic three-jaw chuck, parts catcher, swarf conveyor and vouchers for MacInnes coolant and lubricants, plus £500-worth of Dormer Pramet tooling.

At the show, there will also be the chance to see the versatile Hurco VM10i machining centre with a working volume of 660 x 406 x 508mm. It fits into a compact space, yet visitors will see its ability to offer true machining centre performance. Steel cutting demonstrations will take place throughout the show.
