Machine Series Features Direct Drive Spindle
Hurco launches the latest iteration of the VMXDi series, which features a direct drive spindle.
Hurco launches the latest iteration of the VMXDi series, which features a direct drive spindle. This series includes the VMX24Di, VMX30Di and the VMX42Di. With the direct drive spindle, the VMXDi series boasts a better surface finish, quieter spindle and less head growth. It also includes a 15,000-rpm spindle, improved chip to chip time, faster spindle acceleration and deceleration.
The VMX42Di will use the Hurco control powered by WinMax software and the patented motion system called UltiMotion, which determines the optimal trajectory to run the tool, provides consistent programmed feed rates and reduces cycle time. The control helps machinists and job shops be more productive and profitable by supporting many programming methods: conversational programming; NC programming; and a feature called NC/Conversational Merge that optimizes efficiency even further.
Here are techniques commonly used to combat chatter and guidelines to establish a foundation for optimizing the moldmaking process.
