Time’s Running Out to Win a Free Machine

Hurco’s “Chipmaker Challenge” is well underway, but there’s still time to submit an entry and possibly bring home a brand new CNC machining center or lathe.

The VMX42i features X-, Y- and Z-axis travels of 42” × 24” × 24”; a 50” × 24” table; a 12,000-rpm spindle; and capacity for 24 CAT 40 tools.

Are you an entrepreneur who's been in business for five years or less? If you had the opportunity to install a free Hurco machining center or lathe completely for free, could you tell me how it might fit into your overall business plan?

If the answer to both questions is “yes,” and you’re planning to attend this year’s IMTS, don’t tell me—tell Hurco. And do it fast, because time is running out!

Modeled after the television show Shark Tank, the machine tool builder’s ChipMaker Challenge contest is currently underway, but it’s only accepting submissions until August 8. To initiate the two-step submission process, click here. You’ll have to answer a series of questions and submit an essay (in written or video form) detailing how you’d benefit from a new machine. The top five finalists will appear in front of a panel of judges at IMTS 2014. The winner will receive a choice of a VMX42i CNC mill or TM8i CNC lathe, as well as $10,000 worth of “Hurco Bucks” that can be used for training, tooling, or other options/services from the machine tool builder.
