The TM turning centers are designed for general purpose turning applications and provide an easy transition from manual turning or milling.
Major structural components use thick-walled, fine-grain cast iron including the machine base, head stock, and cross slide. The rigid one-piece machine base casting is designed to yield excellent static and dynamic performance in addition to outstanding dampening properties that inhibit thermal deformation and twisting. The box type cross slide ensures the turret remains rigid and stable even during interrupted cuttting. Hurco uses extra wide linear guide ways that are designed for support to the cross slide.
The slotted tool turret provides fast and accurate tool indexes (1.5 seconds to index to the oppisite turret position). Every tool position can accomodate any combination of ID and OD tool holders. The turret uses a large curvic coupling for accurate location and clamping. Despite the small footprint, a wide range of parts are handles by the generous turning diameter and turning
