The VC500i (XYZ Travels: 520 x 450 x 400mm) is a 5-axis cantilever machining center that includes a 12,000 RPM spindle with a BBT40 spindle taper. The VC Series by Hurco was designed for customers to support a wide range of parts and allows machinists to use standard length tooling due to the B-axis configuration. The B-axis provides superb undercutting ability with a full 110° in both positive and negative directions. Solid one-piece cast iron frame optimized with both static and dynamic Finite Element Analysis (FEA).


The 5-axis VC Series B-axis trunnion style configuration also allows for shorter tools to be utilized when cutting smaller parts. When cutting smaller parts on a traditional A-axis trunnion, the tools approach the part from behind the A-axis trunnion. This means when running smaller 5-axis parts on larger machines, the operator is forced to use longer tools for clearance. Since a B-axis trunnion tilts around the Y-axis, the tool is always approaching the part from a safe direction and the possibility for interference is much less.

 

The Hurco VC500i is equipped with the Hurco control powered by WinMax® software and the patented motion system called UltiMotion® (www.hurco.com/ultimotion). The control helps machinists and job shops be more productive and profitable by supporting many programming methods: conversational programming; NC programming; and a Hurco-specific feature called NC/Conversational Merge that optimizes efficiency even further. Additionally, the Hurco control’s technical specifications lead the industry with 4GB RAM, 128GB Solid State Drive, and 10,000 block look ahead.
