After a short delay from the shipping company, the new Hurco VM-10 arrived. Due to a height limitation Hurco removed the Z-axis and tool changer motors prior to shipment. The riggers did an excellent job of getting the machine in my shop with 1” of head height to spare.
Walt from Hurco came up from Florida to do the install and reassemble the machine a few days later. His patience and expertise was invaluable while we worked thru a few issues and watched me trim 2” from a floor joist. Everything worked out well and Walt was the on his way.
Skip From Applied Machine Solutions came in to do the training a couple of days later and since this is my first CNC mill he had his work cut out for him. He modified his training routine to incorporate my current jobs as training scenarios. I feel confidant that Skip left me with the basics to get started with a few more jobs that I have coming up in the near future.
I’ll be posting many questions in the future so be gentle.
So far my experience with Hurco, Walt and Skip have be exceptional!
