The Hurco BX40Ui 5-axis CNC double-column machining center features an integrated trunnion table along the Y-axis while the ladder structure and double-column design provide rigidity and support to the head casting. With an 18,000rpm spindle and oversized linear guide rollers, the BX40Ui also features a bridge structure isolated from part weight for stable, predictable operation. Cutting feed rates from high-speed motion technology – UltiMotion – reduces cycle times 30% or more with required surface finish quality.

Power milling chucks

Maximizing milling performance and reducing tooling inventories, Power Milling Chucks deliver 5µm runout accuracy at 3xD. Through direct clamping technology, one chuck can hold cylindrical shank 0.75" and 1.25" (20mm and 32mm) diameter tools and Weldon shank tools of 0.75" (20mm) diameters. With the use of reduction sleeves, the chuck accommodates shank diameters in cylindrical plain, Weldon, and Whistle Notch tools from 0.25" to 1.00" (6mm to 25mm). The chucks secure milling tools for roughing and finishing operations, as well as drilling and tapping tools.

Avoiding clamping problems associated with the steel-to-steel contact on collet chucks, Power Milling Chucks have a nut and needle-bearing design for clamping power with minimal tightening force/torque requirements.

Optional coolant-stop screws enable the chucks to engage through-tool coolant without ancillary equipment.

Self-centering vises prevent lift

Part of the Fixture Pro line of modular 5-axis workholding, self-centering vises feature a pull-down jaw design to actively reduce jaw lift caused by flex and raising up during clamping. Available in 75mm and 130mm with various mounting options, the self-centering vises have a low-profile design for easy part (machining) access, easy centering/re-centering adjustment, and quick-change jaws that don’t require tools. Jaws are reversible and available in step jaws with serrated inserts, aluminum soft jaws, steel soft jaws, and hardened step jaws. Maximum clamping force is 3,600 lb at 50 lb-ft.

Mounting options are compatible with several Jergens platforms including Fixture Pro, Drop & Lock, Quick-Loc, Lang Quick Point, and 5th Axis RockLock.
