Hurco will unveil the BX40i double-column (bridge-type) CNC machine at IMTS 2016. The stability of the double-column design and the overall weight of the machine (20,062 lbs.) provide exceptional accuracy and outstanding surface finish capabilities. While designed specifically for the mold market and aerospace industry, the BX40i meets the needs of any high speed machining application that requires tighter tolerances while allowing the machine to operate at optimum spindle speeds due to the machine design.
Hurco will bring the spirit of Indianapolis, the location of the company’s worldwide headquarters since its founding in 1968, to McCormick Place for IMTS 2016. Since Indianapolis is home to the single largest one-day sporting event, the Indianapolis 500, Hurco created a scaled down version of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, complete with a blimp and leaderboard, for their booth where IMTS attendees can race RC IndyCars.
