To satisfy mold customers who wanted more Y-axis travel without having to jump to the larger footprint of the VMX64 machining center, Hurco has introduced the VMX6030i, which offers 30" of travel in Y with travel of 60" and 24" in the X and Z axes, respectively.

According to Hurco, the VMX6030i also includes many standard features that competitive models offer as options, including a 40-tool swing-arm ATC, a 12,000-rpm spindle and a 115-gallon coolant tank. The machining center also has a larger table with a working surface of 66.14" × 30" inches and includes a Hurco UltiMotion motion system, which is designed to reduce cycle time and improve surface finish. As with all Hurco machine tools, the VMX6030i is powered by the integrated Hurco control that supports both ISO/EIA and conversational programming.

  • How to Choose the Right CNC Router

    With moldmaking the focus is on injection molding or other mold types that use wire EDM or CNC machining centers to create the mold components. Your typical machining center weighs several tons and has a relatively small working envelope compared to a CNC router. The mill’s massive construction lends itself to machining rigid materials with very tight tolerances. While this type of CNC is suited for injection molding components, it isn’t always the ideal tool for the job when we broaden our scope of moldmaking and the current opportunities in the marketplace
