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.


50th Anniversary Celebration

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!

Solid Models into Solid Parts

After years of research at the HURCO Center of Machining Technology Advancement in Indianapolis, Indiana, they are releasing a huge advancement for solid model and 3D DXF users.  The HURCO control is now capable of importing a solid model or a 3D DXF and then creating a conversational program from that model.  All it takes is a couple of clicks on the feature you want to machine, tell the machine what tool you want to use, and then hit the green button.  Please watch the video for an actual demo.
