Hurco VM10Ui Plus

5-Axis Vertical Machining Center

5-Axis Trunnion Style Machine


The Hurco VM10Ui Plus 5-Axis trunnion style machining center is an ideal configuration for 5-sided machining. The integrated trunnion table design provides more clearance in Z for larger part capacity compared to other brands. With more standard features than other 5-axis machines, the trunnion style machining center is a perfect fit for 5-sided work. Exceptional cutting feed rates are achieved with patented high-speed motion technology – resulting in the fastest cut with the best surface finish.

Trunnion Table 5-Axis Makes 5-Sided Machining Easy


The efficient design of the Hurco 5-axis trunnion table machining centers (U Series) is a key benefit to consider—we use an integrated trunnion table at instead of simply sticking a trunnion table on a 3-axis machining center and passing it off as a 5-axis machine. The integrated trunnion table design provides more clearance in Z compared to other brands.


Benefits of Trunnion 5-Axis Mill


Easy Transition From 3-Axis Machining

The 5-axis trunnion style machining centers are an ideal configuration for 5-sided machining, especially if you’ve always worked on a 3-axis machine because the trunnion style design uses the same principles as 3-axis (i.e., you still machine in a linear fashion, but you just machine more sides).  This means less training, less setup time, and more flexibility.

More Clearance In Z-Axis

The integrated design of the trunnion table 5-axis VMC gives you more clearance in Z, especially compared to 3-axis VMCs with a trunnion table added to simulate a 5-axis VMC.

Seamless Integration

Seamless integration of pneumatic and/or hydraulic fixtures is another benefit. We purposely designed the U-Series 5-axis VMCs so you can easily feed the cables for these types of fixtures through the shoulder.

Better Undercut + Larger Work Volume + More Torque

Other reasons to choose the trunnion style configuration include better undercut capability because the trunnion rotates  +110 degrees compared to the SR’s +92 degrees. Compared to the SR, the trunnion style gives you a larger work volume because you don’t have to compensate for the space used by the swivel head with tool attached. The U-Series trunnion 5-axis mills also have more torque at low rpm.


Advanced 5-Axis Control Technology


Hurco has a host of many features designed to make 5-sided and 5-axis more efficient.


Tool Center Point Management

Eliminates the need to account for the machining center’s center lines of rotation. Instead, you simply use the solid model zero location. Post the program independent of where the stock is fixtured on the table.

Transform Plane

Calculates the other locations for each of the rotary moves after you locate part zero. The control software only needs you to define part zero one time, and it figures out all of the other part zero locations automatically.

3-D Tool Compensation

Eliminates the need to repost the program in order to adjust the tool diameter because of wear. For 3D surfaces, machinists cut off the tool’s center line to obtain a better surface finish and preserve tool life. This feature allows you to compensate for wear without the need to repost.

Tool Path Linearization

Eliminates gouging of the work piece and the line segments in the form of XYZBC or AC moves that a CAM system uses, which results in a smoother surface finish and a smaller program.

Tool Vector Input

Allows the control to compute machine angles and positions, and calculates the angle the tool is going to tilt from the contact point of the surface. This means the part program is machine independent.

Tool Vector Retract

Tells the spindle to retract out of the hole or pocket along the tool vector angle, which eliminates tool breakage and/or damage to the part.


We OWN 5-Axis + 5-Sided

At Hurco, we are immersed in 5-axis technology. We have carved out a niche in this arena because we made a commitment fifteen years ago to focus on 5-axis. We determined this type of machining center, combined with the capabilities of our control, would make our customers more profitable. Similar to the transition from manual mills to CNC mills, we believe the time is right for shops across the country to increase profit margin by investing in 5-axis.


Because we listened to our customers’ reservations about switching from a 3-axis process to 5-axis, we assembled a 5-axis applications team with a dedicated phone number and email to help. If you do NOT OWN a 5-axis machining center, the most important message you need to know: 5-sided machining on a 5-axis machining center will increase the profit margin of the parts you are producing on your 3-axis machining centers. The Hurco control makes programming easy for 5-sided—NO CAM needed!

Don’t Get Left Behind


According to benchmark data from Modern Machine Shop magazine, 24% of the highest performing shops in the U.S. are using 5-axis positioning. Hurco has carved out a niche in the 5-axis arena due to years of research and development. When we decide where to invest our resources at Hurco, our primary criteria are customer productivity and profitability. We evaluate the past, the present, and the possibilities of the future to determine what technology will benefit our customers the most. Nearly a decade ago, we determined that 5-axis machining warranted our attention and set a path to become the experts. We continue to lead the industry in developing control technology that optimizes the process for full 5-axis and 5-sided (3+2).


As our industry transitioned from manual to CNC milling, many shops got left behind. The transition from 3-axis to 5-axis may prove to be a similar situation. At the very least, you should evaluate the benefits of integrating 5-sided processes into your operation. With 5-sided, also called 3+2, you reduce setup time, increase accuracy, and expand your shop’s capability for future simultaneous 5-axis work.


When you invest in a Hurco 5-axis CNC machining center, you get two machines in one. A machine that will immediately increase the profit margin of the parts you’re producing on a 3-axis machining center via powerful 5-sided programming (no CAM needed) and a rigid machine that is fully compatible with CAD/CAM packages for simultaneous 5-axis.




The efficient design of the Hurco 5-axis trunnion table machining centers (U Series) is a key benefit to consider—we use an integrated trunnion table at instead of simply sticking a trunnion table on a 3-axis machining center and passing it off as a 5-axis machine. The integrated trunnion table design provides more clearance in Z compared to other brands.
