CNC programming: WinMax control

If your goal is to increase profitability by reducing setup time and programming time, the Hurco CNC control is for you. We’ve separated the benefits of our control into sections so you can easily evaluate each feature to see how our technology can make your shop more profitable.


The most powerful control in industry

  • faster from the drawing to the finished part
  • shortest learning curve
  • fastest programming
  • quick overview by double screen
  • designed ergonomically

Automated programming by DXF

DXF files can be read directly into the CNC control. The geometry data can be automatically transferred to the machining program. Afterwards, only the technology data (tool, radius compensation) has to be added.
Maximum benefit from the advantages of both programming methods

The option NC program jump enables the integration of NC programs in dialog programs.
