Hurco VMX42Ui Performance 5-Axis MC (CAT40, 12K, 40T)

The efficient design of the Hurco 5-axis trunnion table machining centers (U Series) is a key benefit to consider—we use an integrated trunnion table at instead of simply sticking a trunnion table on a 3-axis machining center and passing it off as a 5-axis machine. The integrated trunnion table design provides more clearance in Z compared to other brands.

Benefits of Trunnion 5-Axis Mill

  • Easy transition from 3-axis machining. The 5-axis trunnion style machining centers are an ideal configuration for 5-sided machining, especially if you’ve always worked on a 3-axis machine because the trunnion style design uses the same principles as 3-axis (i.e., you still machine in a linear fashion, but you just machine more sides).  This means less training, less setup time, and more flexibility.
  • More clearance in Z-axis. The integrated design of the trunnion table 5-axis VMC gives you more clearance in Z, especially compared to 3-axis VMCs with a trunnion table added to simulate a 5-axis VMC.
  • Seamless integration. Seamless integration of pneumatic and/or hydraulic fixtures is another benefit. We purposely designed the U-Series 5-axis VMCs so you can easily feed the cables for these types of fixtures through the shoulder.
  • Better undercut + larger work volume + more torque. Other reasons to choose the trunnion style configuration include better undercut capability because the trunnion rotates  +110 degrees compared to the SR’s +92 degrees. Compared to the SR, the trunnion style gives you a larger work volume because you don’t have to compensate for the space used by the swivel head with tool attached. The U-Series trunnion 5-axis mills also have more torque at low rpm.
