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.

    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
