Hurco VMX42UHSi

Vertical Machining Center – 5-Axis High-Speed Trunnion

5-Axis High-Speed Trunnion Style Machine


The Hurco VMX42UHSi 5-Axis High-Speed 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. High torque, fast feed rates, and more standard features than other 5-axis machines makes the trunnion style machining center 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.

  • Spindle:  18,000 RPM, 88 ft/lbs @ 2,800
  • Tool Capacity:  40 HSK63
  • Machine Weight:  15,840 lbs


VMXHSi: When You Need Speed


The Hurco VMXHSi high speed machining centers are equipped with the necessary components for speed, accuracy, and repeatability. The VMXHSi includes ABEC-7 ceramic hybrid bearings and an 18k base speed spindle, which gives you the speed you need and manages the thermal issues associated with high speed machining. The air over oil spindle lubrication distributes oil evenly and prevents bearings from grease starvation.The faster ATC decreases chip to chip time and has HSK tooling.


These machines are built to last and to retain accuracy with larger linear rails that are mounted to a machined shoulder for increased rigidity. Additionally, the rails are wedge-locked to the frame to reduce vibration instead of using the faster, cheaper face-milled process.


Equipped with Yaskawa Sigma 5 drives, UltiMotion, and the latest WinMax9 control software, the VMXHSi mills are well worth the investment.



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.


Premium Components Increase Performance


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 VMX design and using premium components.


The Heart of the Machining Center. The VMX 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 VMX 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.





Integral spindle. Premium components. Built for speed. Built to last.

Our newest line of mills has the quality components and specifications you need to go fast. The VMXHSi high-speed machining centers combine all of the ergonomic design features and robustness of our proven VMX mills with components required for high speed machining.
