Hurco expands large 5-axis machining centre range

Hurco expands large 5-axis machining centre rangeDesigned for the manufacture of large components, Buckinghamshire-based Hurco Europe Ltd's dual-column DCX range offers long travels in the X and Y axes.

The bridge that carries the Y-axis moving elements provides a stiff, thermally stable structure for consistently accurate machining, while the high capacity table allows easy loading of heavy components by fork lift or crane.

The three-axis DCX range already offers five model variants ranging in size from the DCX22i with its 2,200 x 1,700 x 750mm working volume to the DCX42i with 4,200 x 2,600 x 1,100mm travels and 16-tonne table load capacity.

Hurco recently upgraded to a new supplier of the two-axis spindle head that drives the five-axis versions of these machines and is now able to offer a high-torque HSK-A100 taper/12,000rpm option in addition to the established HSK-A63/18,000rpm specification.

The first model to be built with the German designed and manufactured two-axis HSK-A100 head is the DCX32-26-5Si, due for launch in early 2021. Rotary motions of the rigid fork arrangement with torque motor direct drives is ±360deg in the C-axis and ±110deg in the B-axis.

The simultaneous five-axis motion suits the machining of complex 3-D shapes or draft angles while keeping cutter length to a minimum.
