    Hurco CNC Machine Technology at EASTEC 2019

    INDIANAPOLIS – Hurco distributor Brooks Associateswill demonstrate the power of Hurco
    5-axis technology at EASTEC Booth #1206. The Hurco BX40Ui5-axis CNC double-column machining center, with integrated trunnion table along the Y-axis, is the perfect combination of performance and flexibility. The ladder structure and double-column design provide extreme rigidity and outstanding support to the head casting. With an 18K motorized spindle and oversized linear guide rollers, the BX40Ui is perfect for a wide range of applications. Additionally, the bridge structure is isolated from part weight and operates in a stable and predictable manner. Exceptional cutting feed rates are achieved with patented high-speed motion technology called UltiMotion that simultaneously reduces cycle times by up to 30% or more and delivers outstanding surface finish quality. Experience the flexibility and ergonomic design of the Hurco control in person. See how easy the new Solid Model Import feature of the Hurco control makes programming, especially for high-mix shops that manufacture smaller quantities of parts. Brooks Associates will also exhibit the newly released HurcoVMX30Dihigh performance machining center with direct-drive 18K spindle and the TMX8MYSislant-bed lathe with all-digital drives and motors and absolute encoders on all linear axes. Industry partner Greenleaf Corporation will showcase the Hurco 3-axis VM10i machining center at Booth #5317. The VM10i features a small footprint with a large work cube. No other mill packs as much productivity into such an efficiently designed package.

    For IMMEDIATE RELEASE                       Contact: Carolena  Nevarez/Sodick, 




    “Sodick is pleased to introduce the new UH650L High Speed Milling and Grinding center. With patented rigid linear motor technology powering all machine travels, the UH650L offers instantaneous response times to maintain ideal chip load, even with small endmills. Moreover, with seamlessly integrated Jig Grinding capability, the UH650L can transition from milling to grinding for optimal circularity and contour accuracy, all within Sodick’s easy-to-use CNC user interface. 

    With no-wear linear motors and zero-backlash, Sodick machining centers are the equipment of choice for work requiring micron tolerances. Capable of axis acceleration over 1G, the UH achieves unsurpassed speed and finish when machining anything from Steel and Titanium to Graphite and PEEK. Plus, with a pressure-purged spindle and M-Code Relay, Sodick’s “smart” graphite option outperforms virtually all competitors in measures of longevity and energy consumption.

    Finally, built on a rigid cast bridge-style frame, the UH650L provides the most stable platform possible for precision machining, with significantly more weight than the average competitor. Combining this milling & grinding center with a 45-position tool changer or full robot automation is the ideal solution for extended lights-out production.

    Locally, Brooks Associates carries the Sodick product line. For more information, contact them at 300 Longwater Drive, Norwell, MA 02061; tel. 781-871-3400; email or visit the company website,”
