June 2016 - OPEN MIND Technologies USA, Inc. will present hyperMILL® MAXX Machining at Amerimold 2016 on June 15 and 16 in Novi MI. MAXX Machining is a set of high performance strategies with hyperMILL CAM software to provide dramatic improvements in machining times for roughing, drilling, and finishing.
MAXX Machining Roughing is a high performance roughing module, based on Celeritive’s Volumill™ toolkit with extensions by OPEN MIND. This module provides increased cutter life while reducing roughing times from 35 to 70% compared to conventional roughing techniques. OPEN MIND offers this technique within 2D pocketing routines, 3D stock roughing, and 5-axis shape offset roughing.
MAXX Machining Drilling is an efficient technique to open holes for roughing using a 5-axis helical drilling technical that allows high efficiency and good chip removal. This technique can use standard endmills and avoid double-cutting chips that leads to degradation of tooling.
The MAXX Machining Finishing technique includes a set of finishing operations focused on the application of conical barrel cutters. This can be applied to large planar surfaces found in mold tooling and also in aerospace structural components. And also on other large ruled or sculpted surfaces. The large radius on the conical barrel cutter allows large step-over distances and can achieve high surface finish. Applied on large surfaces that are typically cut with ball endmill, the confirmed savings with this process is up to 90%. The process includes options for simultaneous or indexed milling, corner bounding passes and automatic boundary detections. The conical barrel cutter also has a ball end ground on the bottom, enabling additional usage of the cutter for fillet surfaces or mold product surfaces.
MAXX Machining Finishing will be presented by OPEN MIND during the technical session “Using a Conical Barrel Cutter for Superior Surface Finish” at Amerimold on Wednesday morning.
