EMO success for Hurco and Roeders

1 min read

EMO 2023 at the end of September has been hailed as a huge success by Hurco and Roeders who made the most of the 92,000 trade visitors to the show in Hannover.

Hurco said its sales staff, agents and distributors reported excellent footfall throughout the week. In total 31 new machine orders were booked on the stand in addition to some high-quality enquiries from new customers.

Michael Auer, managing director of Hurco GmbH, said: “EMO is a great opportunity to reestablish relationships with our sales agents. It also gives us the chance to educate and incentivise for the year ahead. It's also a great platform to display the latest technology that Hurco is offering."

Supporting the focus on automation and simple programming at this year's EMO, Hurco showed two ProCobots; Hurco's own plug-and-play collaborative robot solution, feeding both a lathe and a vertical machining centre. The Hurco ProCobot software reducing programming time to a minimum, thereby making automation of small batches a possibility.

Hurco application engineers had much of their time occupied showing the latest enhancements in the Solid Model Import software which allows jobs to be programmed directly from an STP file at the machine control, eliminating the need for CADCAM.

Hurco are exclusive agents for Roeders High Speed machining centres in the UK and Ireland.

The Roeders high-tech production facility in Soltau, Germany is little more than and hour's drive from Hannover. Roeders, therefore took the opportunity to hold a sales conference and seminar whilst their international representatives were in town.

Specialising in ultra-high accuracy machining and the ability to produce mirror-finishes without the need for hand-finishing, Roeders use EMO as a vehicle to show-off their latest unique technical innovations.

The new RPT (Roeders Precision Technologies) line was launched at EMO, offering even more precision and finer surface qualities harnessing quasi-hydrostatic guideway technology for the linear and rotary direct-drives that eliminate thermal drift even for dynamic processing operations.

Three additional Roeders machines were on show, including their largest 5-axis machine yet, the RXU1201 DSH and two automatised pallet loading options.
