Hurco and Brooks Associates have provided Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. (CCAT – East Hartford, CT) with its advanced 5-axis machining center, the VMX42U, to assist CCAT in their mission to help small businesses, such as job shops, find ways to increase efficiency, productivity, and profitability.
The Hurco VMX42U 5-axis machining center is the perfect machine to highlight increased efficiencies that are available through technology investment.
Many shop owners don’t think they have work that warrants a five axis machine because they immediately think of simultaneous 5-axis work (also called full 5-axis). However, all shops doing 3-axis work can realize more profit margin per part by converting to 5-sided machining on a 5-axis machine.
CCAT works to strengthen the manufacturing sector in the United States throughout the global marketplace by collaborating with industry, academia, and government to help businesses innovate and compete more effectively.
Brooks Associates, a long-time distributor for Hurco machine tools in the northeast, facilitated the partnership between Hurco and CCAT and continues to be actively involved.
Since 2002, Brooks has been Hurco’s top-producing distributor in the following New England states: Maine, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Delaware, Connecticut, and Long Island and Westchester County, New York, and northern New Jersey.
