5 Big reasons to buys a Hurco

What are the main reasons you buy any machine? Do you buy the same type of machine as what you already have? Do you buy what your father always bought? Why do I keep buying those same crappy chips for Cinco de Mayo? Sometimes you need to step outside of the box you made for yourself and really questions why your doing what your doing. A better way may save you a ton of money, and make for a better Cinco de Mayo.  (I swear thats how you spell it, but I am reading it may-o)

CNC Control Customer Satisfaction: 2017

As in 2016, respondents were asked to report their Customer Satisfaction towards their control with the following responses:

  1. It Rocks! (Scored as 1.0)
  2. Works Fine (Scored as 0.0)
  3. Not Very Happy (Scored as -1)

A perfect score would therefore be 1.0, meaning every respondent said, “It Rocks!”

Customer Satisfaction Award, Pro Category: Hurco

Hurco ran away with it compared to the other controls, scoring 0.67.  In essence, that means 2/3’s of Hurco respondents said their control rocks.  I haven’t had the pleasure of using a Hurco control, but I know they have a lot of awesome features, especially in the area of Conversational CNC. One user remarked, “Extremely quick on-machine programming, especially for helix and thread mill operations.”

Accordingly, we’re awarding Hurco our Gold Customer Satisfaction Seal for 2017:

SFQ - How does it work?

 

I have been asked several times of late about the SFQ feature on the Hurco control and thought I would dig up a previous blog post by Mike Cope at Hurco to explain in detail. I admit, I do not have the best explanation for how this works. So I will let Mike do the talking.

SFQ in detail

Its an excellent read and Mike does a good job explaining everything Hurco, I would highly recommend you subscribing to his posts and these as well!

If you have something that you would like us to highlight here please let me know!
