Hurco BX40i

Vertical Machining Center – High-Speed Double-Column Bridge Design

Double-Column Machining Center, BX Series


The Hurco BX40i CNC double-column machine center is the perfect combination of performance and flexibility. The ladder structure and double-column design provides extreme rigidity and outstanding support for the head. With an 18k motorized spindle and oversized linear guide rollers, the BX40i is perfect for a wide range of applications. Exceptional cutting feed rates are achieved with patented high-speed motion technology – resulting in the fastest cut with the best surface finish.

Hurco’s Control Gets You from Print to Part Faster


The Only Dual-Screen Control Console in the Industry
Hurco is the only CNC machining center that gives you the added benefit of a dual-screen control. You can get the job done with a single screen, but the dual-screen makes everything faster and easier.

Data Block Search helps you edit a part program to correct a feature. Instead of searching through lines of code, you simply use the graphics screen to select the part feature you need to edit, and the corresponding line of code appears on the other screen so you can quickly make the change.
Concurrent Programming is another feature that is enhanced with the dual-screen control. While the machining center is running one part, you can program the next part without interrupting the cycle.
DXF Transfer allows you to simply import the CAD image, select the desired features, and the WinMax control automatically creates the program. Then check the part program on the screen with our powerful verifications graphics system that includes 3D solid rendering of the tool path with dynamic rotation and real time tool display. You can view the part from any angle without being forced to redraw it.




The stability of the double-column, the ladder design of the Z-axis, and the overall weight of the machine (over 20,000 lbs.) provide exceptional accuracy and outstanding surface finish capabilities. Equipped with an 18,000 rpm spindle and Hurco’s patented UltiMotion technology, the BX40i is designed for high speeds and tight tolerances.
