Programming simplicity will be Hurco’s theme for Southern Manufacturing 2022 and the company will be showcasing the latest software available on its proprietary Max5 control at the Farnborough exhibition centre from 8th-10th February. 

The 19-inch, colour, touch-screen control is traditionally popular due to the ease with which a first-off part can be programmed. One demonstration will be the latest Solid Model Import option, capable of reducing programming times even further. Whereas previously only 2D DXF files could be loaded directly into the control to create conversational data blocks, now it is possible to import 3D STEP files including surfaces. For machining 5-sided parts, transform plane commands are calculated automatically.

Two of Hurco's best-selling machines will be on the stand. One will be the versatile Hurco VM10i machining centre, which despite having a working volume of 660 x 406 x 508mm fits into a compact space on the shopfloor. Steel cutting demonstrations will take place throughout the show and visitors should be impressed by the ability of the VM10i to offer true machining centre performance.

Sharing equal prominence will be a Hurco TM6i XP 2-axis CNC lathe. It turns parts up to 316mm in diameter by 340mm long and is well suited to bar work up to 45mm diameter. The performance of this compact, accurate turning machine is complemented by the Max5 control. Simple, easy-to-follow graphics guide the user through tooling selection and all operations.

The new XP model enhancements mean that concurrent programming, improved graphics, roller guideways and faster rapids are standard features. The slant-bed lathe is supplied as standard with a 6-inch hydraulic three-jaw chuck, parts catcher and swarf conveyor. Vouchers for MacInnes coolant and lubricants as well as Dormer Pramet tooling are being offered.
