The Pocket Rocket
Hurco has been making updates and changes to there line in an almost continuous fashion for years now. This year alone has seen new software released for the mills, updated ballscrews on the VMX lines for faster rapids and travels, an update to the design for the VC 5 axis machines and now the addition of the "Plus" option to the VM line.
Standard Hurco VM10i - 10k spindle
New Hurco VM10i Plus - 12k Spindle with a chiller
This update also applies to the VM20i and the VM30i as well.
It actually makes for a tough decsion on which Hurco to buy since the VMX24 and the VMX30 have 12k spindles as well. It really comes down to torque between these machines. If you need higher torque, then the VMX line os for you. But if your like most job shops and run into a variety of materials and the torque loads are not really a major factor, then the VM line, now with a 12k CAT40 Big Plus spindle just may be a perfect fit for you.
