Hurco Announces 2018 E. Keith Moore Award Winners

Each year, the employee who demonstrates the work ethic and values of the late E. Keith Moore is presented with the award named after him. Mr. Moore continues to have a positive influence on our culture at Hurco. Last Wednesday, Hurco was proud to recognize two employees with E. Keith Moore awards. Wayne Kline, Senior Manufacturing Engineer with Hurco since 2011 and Matthew Ponto, Software Support Engineer with Hurco since 2013 both received 2018 honors during the company’s annual employee meeting. Both Matt and Wayne exemplify the customer-centric attitude that Mr. Moore exhibited throughout his career at Hurco.

SAM Tech Students Visit Hurco HQ

SAM Tech Students Visit Hurco HQ

The students and instructors from the School of Automotive Machinists & Technology (SAM Tech) in Houston, Texas, stopped by last week to check out our international headquarters. Mike Cope, Hurco Technical Product Specialist, and Gerry Traicoff, Hurco Applications Manager gave them a plant tour and a training session.

SAM Tech was in town for the 2018 Performance Racing Industry Show and had the opportunity to stop by to learn about the future of manufacturing, Hurco's new 3D Import feature on the WinMax® control, and check out some of our new CNC machines. SAM Tech focuses on automotive CNC technology – teaching students how to machine cylinder heads, engine blocks and other vehicle components.

The students and instructors were particularly interested in learning about 5-axis machining and the machine build/assembly portion of the tour. SAM Tech students were familiar with Hurco before their visit since they have Takumi CNC machine in their classroom (Hurco Companies acquired Takumi a few years ago).

All of us at Hurco are passionate about education and the students who are the future of our industry. If you’re an instructor, feel free to contact us to schedule a tour for your students!
