Double Column Machining Center
The dual column DCX42i is the only machine in its class with the integrated Hurco control powered by WinMax. The double column design provides superior dynamic behavior and promotes thermal stability. Our control technology combined with our stringent design and manufacturing processes make the DCX42i an excellent investment. Exceptional cutting feed rates are achieved with patented high-speed motion technology – resulting in the fastest cut with the best surface finish.
When our customers requested a massive machining center that would accommodate the big parts their aerospace and energy customers were ordering, we knew the design and mechanical engineering was critical.
After reviewing various configurations, the Hurco engineering team opted for a double column design because they determined it would provide superior dynamic behavior and promote thermal stability compared to other options. The large table capacity allows nearly any part you have to be machined.
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.
At Hurco, we focus our efforts on reducing your overall cycle time while minimizing time wasted on non-cutting operations, by incorporating time-saving features in our DCX design and using premium components.
The Heart of the Machining Center. The DCX machining centers feature a powerful, 12,000 rpm cartridge spindle. The low base-speed of the spindle provides more torque for the machine without needing a gearbox, which eliminates additional assembly and maintenance.
Prolonging Spindle Life + Preserving Accuracy. We have systems in place to prolong spindle life and combat spindle growth caused by heat dissipation. We use ceramic hybrid bearings in all DCX spindles (12K and faster). These bearings run at much lower temperatures, so they have a significantly longer lifespan and a much lower probability of failure. They are packed with lifetime grease, which promotes a maintenance-free lubrication system. In addition to using ceramic bearings, we use a coolant jacket that is designed into the frame’s head casting to keep the spindle at an optimum temperature by stabilizing wide temperature variations and reducing heat dissipation. Because keeping the spindle and work area clean is vital to machine performance, we incorporate an upper and lower air-purge system to keep contaminants outside of the spindle.
Best-In-Class Chip Management High pressure, high volume, stainless steel coolant ring with adjustable nozzles delivers coolant right to the tool. Dedicated large capacity pump system and scraper type lift-up conveyor with barrel height discharge eliminate costly cleanup and save valuable time. Sloped telescopic way covers protect the internal components of the machining center.
Generous Tool Capacity ATC Fully enclosed, side-mounted, swing-arm ATC gives you more room to work and has more tool capacity. The all electronic design provides the reliability, speed, and near-zero maintenance you require.
The DCX Series of CNC machining centers was created due to customer requests—customers who already knew the value of Hurco and needed larger machines for aerospace and energy parts. Our 2-meter and 3-meter VMCs are the biggest machine tools available with the powerful Hurco control.
