Hurco Introduces New Horizontal Boring Mill

INDIANAPOLIS—Hurco announced the addition of a horizontal boring mill, HBMX55i, to its product line of 50 CNC machine tools. The HBMX55i horizontal boring mill has a small footprint (18 feet 4.37 inches x 17 feet 3.28 inches) especially considering the large work envelope (55.1 x 55.7 x 43.3 inches). The HBMX55i has a W-stroke of 19 inches, a geared head spindle with two speeds, hardened box ways, and weighs just over 21 tons (42,328 pounds).

“Compared to similar universal type boring mills, the HBMX55i has more tools and includes more peripherals that are required for boring as standard items instead of options you have to add on. For instance the HBMX55i comes with a 4.33-inch diameter quill that allows you to use shorter tools; a contouring 4th axis rotary table, not just positional; linear glass scales on X, Y, and Z axes to maintain thermal stability and increase accuracy; CTS, and a 60-tool ATC,” says Phil Fassnacht, Hurco Marketing Director.

As are all Hurco mills, the horizontal boring mill is powered by the integrated Hurco control that supports both ISO/EIA NC and Conversational Programming, and includes the patented Hurco motion system, UltiMotion®.
