OPEN MIND Technologies at SolidWorks World 2010
Wessling, Germany, January 2010 – From 31 January to 3 February 2010, SolidWorks World will take place at the Anaheim Convention Centre in California. For these four days, this event will once again be the industry meeting place for SolidWorks® users from all over the world. OPEN MIND Technologies AG will exhibit its successful CAM solution hyperMILL® in Booth 624 as a fully integrated solution for SolidWorks®. OPEN MIND will also present its current release hyperMILL® 2009.2 for the first time in the United States.
hyperMILL®, one of the world’s most modern CAM programming systems, is available to all SolidWorks®-users in their own familiar software environment. The current version includes many new features and functions that reduce programming times and optimise processes. The production mode function, for instance, minimises all approach and retract movements within a machining job. And with the transformation option, SolidWorks® users can quickly and easily duplicate programs across the work area as often as they like. Structured job lists help to create well-designed programs. There are many more automatic features that contribute to increasing ease of programming while also reducing programming times. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the advantages and potential of hyperMILL® for SolidWorks® both at OPEN MIND’s stand, number 624. There will also be a presentation in the Certified SolidWorks Partner Theather on February 2 at 1:00 PM.
Seamless integration for continuous processing
Thanks to the seamless integration of hyperMILL® for SolidWorks®, continuous processes can be easily implemented using a unified database. Both the CAD and CAM systems use the same data model. The result is a high degree of transparency and error prevention throughout the entire machining process. This also means that SolidWorks® users always work under the same user interface. The hyperMILL® CAM software can be accessed via the SolidWorks® interface using the hyperMILL® button. All 2D, 3D, HSC and 5axis milling strategies, right through to mill-turning and special applications are available directly within SolidWorks®.
hyperMILL® for SolidWorks®: Certified Gold Product
In designating hyperMILL® as a ‘Certified Gold Product’, SolidWorks® conferred its highest award based on outstanding integration, quality and interoperability in relation to its own CAD environment.
