Hurco recently partnered with Modern Machine Shop magazine for an educational online 5-axis webinar, called: “Take Five for 5-Axis”. It was very well received by everyone who attended, and the feedback afterward was outstanding. In this webinar, I try to present this information in a very simple way, and attempt to explain things in a manner that even those who have no history of 5-axis machining can understand it. After all, that was the intention…to educate and teach!Read More
The MAX5 Hurco control console is the epitome of user-centric design. We put together the concept, made a working sample, and tested it with customers with varying levels of experience. Their input during multiple usability tests resulted in 80 improvements to the design and functionality of the MAX5 control console. In the design world, it’s called ergonomics and usability. We call it common sense. The MAX5 console from Hurco: Customer refined and customer approved!

CUSTOMER Input: Anvil Bikeworks, Golden, Colorado
Anvil Bikeworks has the distinction of being the first customer in the USA to purchase a Hurco CNC machine with the new MAX5 control.
We love that Matt Hartman at Anvil Bikeworks has named the remote jog unit the RPG! Scroll to the bottom of the picture to see why Matt calls his MAX5 RPG a work of art.
"The RPG (Remote Pulse Generator) is a work of art. The magnetic base makes it easy to take off the control and put it on the mill. When you are using the RPG remotely having a DRO on it takes it to the next level for usability. You're using it remotely for a reason, so looking at the main screen might not be easy. You can start and stop programs from the RPG, control speeds, and it even has a built in flashlight for quick inspection." - Matt Hartman, Production Supervisor, Anvil Bikeworks
Hurco Product Lineup
Whether you call it a milling machine, a machining center, or a machine tool, Hurco has the right CNC equipment to make your business more profitable. We have expanded our product categories to serve our customers requests for the integrated Hurco control on a specific type of CNC machine.
Hurco is an American company (Nasdaq: HURC) with global reach. Based in Indianapolis, Hurco engineers have been inventing technology that makes machinists more productive and job shops more profitable since 1968. We build CNC machines that are equipped with the MAX control powered by WinMax® software. The Hurco control is the most flexible in the industry because it is equally powerful whether you use conversational or Industry Standard NC programming…or you can use the best of both with Hurco’s NC/Conversational Merge feature.
How Hurco Makes Shops More Profitable
Although Hurco is officially listed as a global machine tool builder, the technology we develop is what makes our customers more productive and makes their businesses more profitable. Manufacturing equipment that makes machinists more productive and shops more profitable has been the core purpose of Hurco since 1968 when Edward Humston and Gerald Roch founded the company in Indianapolis. Mr. Roch grew up around machining and knew there was a way that the emerging computer technology could make machine shops more efficient.
Fast forward to today. Mr. Roch was right and his dream has been realized: Hurco designs and builds CNC machines that make our customers more profitable because of the control technology we develop. The operating system of our MAX5 control, called WinMax®, lets our customers program parts faster so they can manufacture those parts more efficiently. While our CNC machines are found in Fortune 500 companies, such as Caterpillar, GM, GE, and Google, most of our customers are family-owned job shops that manufacture a high mix of parts in small to medium batches for many different industries. For them, making more chips is critical. Time spent programming and setting up the part cuts into profit margins.Learn More

When people hear the term “automation”, it usually conjures visions of high production processes, where shops are running hundreds of thousands of the same part. But in today’s ever-changing and increasingly competitive industry that is not always the case.Read More
In February of 2013 I posted an article titled: “5-Axis…it just ain’t that scary”, and to date it has been one of the most popularly read articles in my blog series. So, I thought I would expand on that article a little bit, and dive a little deeper into what can be done with 5-axis technology…Read More
