Indianapolis — Hurco will bring the party to McCormick Place to celebrate its 50th Anniversary with customers, industry partners, and IMTS attendees. Hurco will feature its latest CNC technology innovation on its 50th Anniversary Edition CNC machines.

In addition to plenty of machine demos and technology previews, Hurco will toast the company’s 50th anniversary with a happy hour each day at 4:00pm (CDT) and host a 50th Anniversary After-Hours Party on Wed., Sept. 12 from 4:00pm to 9:00pm (CDT) at the Hurco IMTS Booth #338319.

“We’re excited to use our 50th Anniversary IMTS events to showcase our customers who make some really cool products. Beverages will be dispensed from a Bottoms Up Beer system, made by an Indiana company that is turning the beer industry upside down—literally! And our 50th Anniversary IMTS gift was made by Bottle Breacher, an Arizona customer, Eli Crane, who used his winnings from the television show Shark Tank to buy his Hurco VM20i. Eli is a Navy SEAL veteran who turned his hobby into a thriving business. We hope the owners of both Bottoms Up Beer and Bottle Breacher will be able to break away from their shops for a few days and celebrate with us at IMTS. Both companies are a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit that is indicative of Hurco customers everywhere,” says Maggie Smith, Hurco marketing manager.

The Hurco booth will be divided into four quadrants: Automation, 5-axis, 3-axis, and Turning. In the Automation quadrant, attendees will see Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) in action with Hurco CNC machine demonstrations in partnership with Erowa, Universal Robots, Fanuc robots, Online Resources, and Industrial Controls & Automation.

The 5-Axis quadrant will feature the latest 5-axis models and CNC technology that make the transition from conventional 3-axis machining to 5-sided machining easy and straightforward.

The 3-Axis quadrant will feature our most popular CNC machines, the VMX6030i and the new VMX42Di with the direct drive spindle.

In the Turning quadrant, attendees will see the latest control software release that streamlines turning and milling. Hurco will also premiere its 3D Import feature with 3D DXF.

In addition to the 50th Anniversary parties and displays, Hurco will showcase the next generation 3D print head adapter that was first introduced at IMTS 2016. The following Hurco CNC machines will be under power at the Hurco booth:
