Every year HURCO gives its’ dealers awards for best performance over the past 12 months. The Foothills team received the award for the third best dealer in North America for market share. Not bad for a state that makes a majority of its’ money not manufacturing.
If you haven’t noticed we seem to gravitate towards the latest technology in CNC Controls. For decades, Southwestern Industries have been the leader in Tool Room Technology with thousands of their controls in tool rooms just about everywhere. The Prototrak Control is known as one of the most versatile to go from print to part in a low volume, high mix environment. This September they will be releasing the RMX version. It includes a touch screen, brushless servo motors, DXF FIle Conversion, TRAKing and more that they won’t tell me about. Stay tuned for news on this upcoming release.
No this isn’t the ever popular HURCO VM10i. It is the VM10i Plus. Standard on this machine is a 12,000 RPM spindle, Spindle Chiller Unit, Rigid Tapping, and Ultimotion Software with 10,000 Block Look Ahead.

Introducing the Hyundai-Wia 5 axis machining center that will impress even the unimpressable…”The Best 5-axis vertical machining center in the world.”
HYUNDAI-Wia Europe R&D center developed this machine to compete with the best machines in the market and succeeded. It incorporates a large mono-block design with an X/Y box-in-box gantry. Although aspects of this design are not new, Hyundai has perfected it at a reasonable price.
Available with spindles from 15,000 to 40,000 rpm, tool changer from 34 to 102 tools, and easily integrated with load/unload automation. To achieve the best surface finishes and tightest tolerances, Direct Drive Motors are utilized in the A & C Axis. High-precision linear scales are standard on all axes to control thermal growth. Rotary scales are standard for rotating axis.
It is fast. 2,362 IPM rapids at 1G accel/dec. This machine is able to achieve these speeds while holding the tightest of tolerance because of the Box-in-Box Design. With two ball screws in the Y axis, it is able to move the relatively small mass of the Y-axis easily without oversized motors fighting gravity and mass.
It is powerful. The standard 15K spindle is driven by a 41 HP built-in motor and produces 113 ft/lbs of torque. Even the optional 24k Spindle has 35 HP and 64ft/lbs of torque.
This is the Toyoda-Takisawa NEX-105 high-performance turning center. Although it takes up very little floor space, it is a very productive little machine. It comes standard with a 6″ Chuck, 1.7″ Bar Capacity and can turn up to a 6.7″ Diameter Part. The spindle turns at 6,000 rpm and has 10 HP to cut hard materials with ease. The base structure is a one-piece casting with Linear Roller Bearing Guideways, and in total weighs almost 6,ooo lbs. If this kind of machine interests you come by our
place, we have one on the floor for you to see. By the way, it’s under $50k and comes standard with a 12 Station ATC, Chip Conveyor, and a Parts Catcher.
In 1968, Mr. Roch and E.L. Humston formed Hurco to design products that would make job shops more productive, efficient, and profitable. Today, we are able to continue that mission due to a foundation of continuous innovation that was set 50 years ago. Along the way, loyal customers, industry partners, dedicated employees, and many forward-thinking leaders exhibited the grit and fortitude necessary for us to succeed.
Please join us March 6th as we honor the accomplishments of the past 50 years and celebrate a future that is bright!
