Veterans Day Video 2016

block with us army seal using Hurco control featuresI'm acting as guest blogger for Mike Cope today because he took a vacation day to honor veterans as he has done each Veterans' Day for the past 17 years with his best buddy and Navy veteran Dave. Mike has many interests, but he is passionate about patriotism and serving veterans and active duty military personnel. Therefore, he takes November 11th seriously...it is just one of the days during the year that he gives back to local veterans through honor and service.

Professionally, Mike is the go-to guy when it comes to understanding how the Hurco control makes machinists more productive and shops more profitable. He knows the control inside and out, and helps all of us make sure the end user understands the value of the multitude of software features WinMax provides. 

The intersection of Mike's personal life and professional life led to the creation of this video. Mike and I were talking about two WinMax features that he thinks we need to focus on more because we do them better than other controls and the value they provide is top notch. Knowing that Veterans' Day was around the corner, Mike decided to illustrate the power of Transform Plane and NC/Conversational Merge by creating a demo that machines the seal of each branch of the military on a five-sided cube. 

Watch this 2-minute video to see how Transform Plane and NC/Conversational Merge simplify programming.

To all of the veterans reading this post, THANK YOU for your service to our country. For those who are not veterans, thank you for taking the time to honor the service our veterans provided when they took the oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic and to bear true faith and allegiance to the same.
