Hurco machining center extends Y-Axis travel

Designed to meet the demands of moldmaking applications, Hurco’s VMX6030i vertical machining center provides more Y-axis travel in a footprint smaller than the company’s VMX64. X, Y and Z-axis travels measure 1525 x 760 x 610 mm, respectively, and the machine also features a 12,000-rpm spindle and 40-tool swing-arm-type automatic toolchanger.


The worktable measures 1680 x 760 mm and features Hurco’s UltiMotion system, said to reduce cycle times and improve surface finish. A dual-screen control console offers data block search, concurrent programming and DXF transfer features. The integrated Hurco control supports both ISO/EIA and conversational programming.

The machine is built on a heavy, ribbed cast iron frame. Pre-tensioned ballscrews are anchored at both ends for increased accuracy and rigidity. A 115-gallon coolant tank is standard. Options include through-spindle coolant, a thermal stabilisation package, part probing and Renishaw tool probing.
