Hurco is an American brand whose range includes 3-axle and 5-axle milling machines and turning centres. Suppliers in various industries often make use of Hurco equipment, from agriculture to the automotive sector. Hurco machines are mainly used with materials such as plastic or aluminium that are relatively easy to process. Cellro usually uses Xcelerate to automate CNC machines like those from Hurco. Xcelerate is compact, flexible, and offers enough storage capacity for batches of different sizes.
Investing in Xcelerate pays off quickly, making it worth the effort! Xcelerate allows you to use the full capacity of your Hurco machine. Whether you produce a few thousand copies of a product every month or you mainly want to automate smaller batches, Xcelerate makes it possible. Of course, to what extent automation will be worth it depends on your process and the product you’re making. Factors such as quantities, runtime and the product’s end price also have an impact.
Interested in automating a Hurco as well? We will be glad to offer you tailor-made advice!
We definitely recommend automating your Hurco if you are working on large or long-term batches of the same product. In cases like these, schedule batches with short runtimes or small numbers of products during the daytime. The flexibility offered by Xcelerate lets you switch between different small batches and products easily. Set up your Xcelerate and Hurco machine for the next batch between runs. Make sure to start the batch with the longest runtime at the end of the working day to maximise the number of extra production hours you can get from your Hurco.
Both older and more recent Hurco machines work with an I/O interface. Newer machines can be prepared for automation, making coupling easy. Existing Hurco machines can also be automated, but they must have been made suitable during assembly. If you’re thinking about automating an existing Hurco, get in touch with Cellro to discuss your options.

Xcelerate is designed to load workpieces into a single machine. From lathes to milling machines and from bench grinders to measuring benches, Xcelerate enables automatic finishing of production series. The automatic loading system can be linked to both new and existing CNC machines. This enables unmanned production for a wide range of machines, so you can focus on more complicated tasks in the workplace. Moreover, Xcelerate can continue operating automatically after closing time.

By moving Xcelerate, you can perform various machine operations using Cellro’s robot loading system. Within 15 minutes, Xcelerate can be moved between up to 4 CNC machines. After this, you can immediately proceed with your jobs. Xcelerate is centered in the floor by means of conical holes. In this video, you can see how this works.

Connecting an automation robot to your machine often means that the machine is no longer accessible during production. After all, a safe situation must always be guaranteed. Cellro’s robot loading systems change this, without endangering the safety of you and your employees. Cellro applies four different safety measures to maintain access to your CNC machine while it is connected to Xcelerate or Elevate.
