VMX50 Machine  

The VMX50 is a heavy-duty, high-performance machining centre with impressive travels of 1270x610x610mm. There isn’t much the VMX50 can’t handle.

The Hurco control and its capabilities give the VMX50 the unmatched ability to increase productivity and efficiency.

10,000/ 12,000 / 15,000 rpm Spindle Options

The VMX50 is designed for performance. The FEA design provides optimal rigidity and ensures part accuracy. The increased metal removal rates save part cycle time. The high rapid feed rates decrease part cycle time.

Quality is not sacrificed in the VMX50’s quest for speed. Digital drives enable greater part accuracy and a higher quality finish.

The VMX50T comes with a 50 taper spindle and a completely redesigned head and column to take the heavier cutting loads and maintain high cut quality. The VMX50-50T also comes standard with a 30-station tool changer and an 8,000 RPM spindle.

All Hurco VMX models include many standard features that are typically offered as options on most other vertical machining centre brands.
