Major turning centre launch

Hurco (Hall 20, Stand 510) is launching a new range of four driven-tool CNC turning centres. 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, is on show for the first time in the UK. The new TMX turning centres offer higher specification and performance than the established TMi and TMMi models. Major differences include higher power and speed, plus a larger, heavier machine frame and the addition of a Y axis in addition to the W 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 6.3 kW and 5000 rpm.
