Hurco VMX42i Performance MC – (CAT40, 12K, 30T)

Our signature line of VMX machining centers takes machining to the next level. These machines deliver high performance capabilities to any machining application. Whether you are doing batch production or die/mold work, the VMX mills will make you more profitable.

With the high velocities and accelerations of today’s applications, machine performance must be carefully optimized in order to maintain accuracy over extended periods of time. The Hurco VMX Series of CNC mills delivers. It starts with a heavy, ribbed frame made of fine grain, high-grade cast iron. A dual-wound 12K spindle delivers the cutting power you need.

The linear rails on all Hurco machines are larger, and spaced for increased strength. But their quality goes far beyond mere size. We wedge lock the rails to a machined shoulder, which makes the machine more robust, instead of simply mounting them to a single surface. The multiple design and manufacturing details we incorporate into a Hurco VMC increase rigidity and reliability, which means each VMX machining center will be the workhorse you expect.
