A new range of four driven-tool CNC turning centres will be launched by Hurco at MACH 2022.
The models include 8-inch and 10-inch chuck versions with the option of a programmable W-axis to position the tailstock or sub-spindle. One model, the TMX8MYSi, will be on show for the first time in the UK and will be centre stage on the company's stand.
The new TMX turning centres offer higher specification and performance than the well-established and popular TMi and TMMi models. The major differences are higher power and speed plus a larger, heavier machine frame and the addition of a Y-axis in addition to the W-axis axis to allow more versatile machining.
The servo-driven turret carries 12 VDI 40 radial tools rather than axial tools as on the TMMi range. Each station provides a peak output of 6.3kW and 5,000rpm. Hurco’s V11.xx software allows the manufacturer's proprietary conversational routines to be used for milling operations, making the package very attractive for small-volume production.
Two additional Hurco CNC lathes will be on show, the TM6i XP and the TM8Mi XP with axial driven tools. The suffix denotes the 2020 upgrade of the previous models, including larger spindle bore, roller guideways, a more compact footprint and improved control system that features concurrent programming, estimated runtime, error check and recovery restart, plus enhanced rigid tapping performance.
