The most efficient way to increase the profit margin on your existing parts is to invest in 5-sided machining. Find out why shops of all sizes are making the switch from 3-axis mills to 5-axis and how the newest technology makes the transition easy.
After this webinar, you will possess the knowledge to evaluate how 5-axis can help your business be more productive and more profitable. With today’s technology, 5-axis doesn’t have to be intimidating.
Primary topics (what you will learn)
• Different machine configurations
• How to calculate your return on investment for a 5-axis machine
• 5-axis workholding principles
• How to program using a 5-sided process
Hurco revolutionized the machine tool industry in 1978 when our co-founder, Gerald Roch, developed shop floor programming for mills. Dubbed Hurco Conversational Programming, Mr. Roch's vision was to use technology (software) to decrease the time it took to go from part design to machining the part, by creating an intuitive programming method that enabled the machinist or operator to program the part right at the machining center's control. Powered by our WinMax® control platform, conversational is better than ever with an enhanced graphical interface, even more simplified programming, and intuitive software features that eliminate redundancy.
If you’re a tried and true G-coder who is under the impression the Hurco control doesn’t handle NC programs, give us another look. Our control has the look-ahead and processing power you need for large NC programs. The NC side of our control supports ISO/EIA standards, which means you can upload your existing programs, including Fanuc® and Siemens®, and run them with little or no editing.
Many shop owners think they don’t have parts that warrant the investment in a 5-axis CNC machining center, but we have scores of customers who have increased their profit margins by doing traditional 3-axis parts on our 5-axis machining centers. The 5-sided (3+2) conversational programming of the Hurco control makes the transition from 3-axis to 5-sided easy—and you won’t need to use a CAM system!
What would a 30% reduction in cycle time mean to your shop? More margin per part? More machine capacity? The specific benefits will vary for each shop, but it's easy to see how UltiMotion will pay for itself faster than any other control technology available. And you can only get UltiMotion from us because we invented it.
With over 60 machines to meet your needs—whether it’s machining, turning, 5-axis, or large parts, Hurco has a machine with all the exclusive Hurco technology that will get you from print to part faster.
