Hurco 5 Axis CNC Products

The Hurco Control Makes 5-Axis Make Sense
Many shop owners think they don't have parts that warrant the investment in a 5-axis CNC machining center or they think they would have to buy a CAM system. Even if you don't have simultaneous 5-axis work, you'll increase the profitability of the parts you are cutting on your 3-axis machines when you use 5-sided machining on a Hurco 5-axis machining center—and you won't need to buy a CAM system!

At Rosco Precision Machinery, we know your application and we know Hurco CNC. That's why you can count on us to provide a cost-effective solution for all you machining needs. Contact Rosco Today for Your Free Consultation or Call 253-333-2439.

Why Hurco for 5-sided programming?
The Hurco control simplifies programming so you can program right at the control using our conversational programming. We have numerous customers who only had 3-axis experience and they were running parts on their new 5-axis Hurco before the training sessions even started. When we say, "Nobody gets you from print to part faster than Hurco," we mean it.

What about simultaneous 5-axis?
If your shop is already doing full 5-axis (simultaneous 5-axis), our control has the processing power and memory to handle your NC programs. Equally important, we keep the control up-to-date with CAM packages so you don't have to worry about compatibility.

But you'll also find 5-axis features in our control that actually improve NC programs. For example, Tool Path Linearization significantly improves surface finish quality because it removes the looping motion that creates tool marks on the part caused by CAM interpolation—and it also reduces the size of NC programs.

To learn more about the 5-axis features of the Hurco control, simply click on a picture in the carousel above and the text appears in the box to the right. Pay special attention to features denoted as Hurco Exclusive or 5-Star—these ratings were assigned by our Applications Engineers, based on their industry/machining expertise and customer input.

Our Sophisticated Control Simplifies 5-Axis Complexity

The control is the brains of all CNC machining center, but its IQ is even more important with 5-axis machining. Hurco has a host of features designed to make 5-sided and 5-axis more efficient.

Tool Center Point Management eliminates the need to account for the machining center's centerlines of rotation. Instead, you simply use the solid model zero location. Post the program independent of where the stock is fixtured on the table.

Transform Plane calculates the other locations for each of the rotary moves after you locate part zero. The control software only needs you to define part zero one time, and it figures out all of the other part zero locations automatically.

3-D Tool Compensation eliminates the need to repost the program in order to adjust the tool diameter because of wear. For 3D surfaces, machinists cut off the tool's centerline to obtain a better surface finish and preserve tool life. This feature allows you to compensate for wear without the need to repost.

Tool Path Linearization eliminates gouging of the workpiece and the line segments in the form of XYZBC or AC moves that a CAM system uses, which results in a smoother surface finish and a smaller program.

Tool Vector Input allows the control to compute machine angles and positions, and calculates the angle the tool is going to tilt from the contact point of the surface. This means the part program is machine independent.

Tool Vector Retract tells the spindle to retract out of the hole or pocket along the tool vector angle, which eliminates tool breakage and/or damage to the part.

Shortest Angular Traverse takes the fastest path to reach the target position.

Hurco 5-Axis CNC Mills Yield Maximum Profitability

Nobody Makes 5-Axis Easier than Hurco
Ten years ago, we set a goal as a company to manufacture the best 5-axis CNC machining centers with the best control and software in the industry. The reason is simple: we determined 5-axis technology would make our customers more profitable. Our 5-axis CNC machining centers, equipped with the integrated Hurco control, are simply the best in the industry. Nobody does 5-axis better than Hurco. And nobody gets you from print to part faster.

Full Support of Simultaneous 5-Axis with Fanuc Integration
A rigid machine that is fully compatible with all CAD/CAM packages for simultaneous 5-axis machining with complete Fanuc integration is a minimum requirement for complex simultaneous 5-axis parts. Hurco has all that and more. We have control features that optimize CAM programs to reduce the file size, improve surface finish, and reduce cycle time. Additionally, you'll appreciate the fast processing speed and generous 2 GB RAM.

Eliminate Bottlenecks and the Cost of a CAM System
Even if you don't require simultaneous 5-axis right now, a Hurco 5-axis machining center will immediately increase the profit margin of the parts you currently manufacture on a 3-axis machining center. Switching from 3-axis to 5-sided machining on a Hurco 5-axis machining center is seamless because our control is equipped with powerful conversational programming features for 5-sided--and no CAM system needed. You program right at the machine. It is the easiest, most intuitive interface on the planet.
