Additional options for your HURCO machining center

The HURCO VMX 42i machine is characterized not only by its high performance, but also by its adaptability. There are numerous options for customized configuration for the machining center - for example, a direct measuring system for x-travel, y-travel and z-travel, an optional 40-position tool changer and Renishaw workpiece/tool measurement. Additional thermal stability can be generated with a coolant supply through the spindle (20 bar). Furthermore, it is possible to equip the HURCO machining center with a rotary table as 4th axis.
There are also additional configuration options for the MAX® 5 control developed by HURCO. For example, you can add a DXF add-on option, a mold making package and software-supported optimization of the tool changer to the control for your HURCO VMX 42i machine.
