May 21,2014 -- OPEN MIND Technologies USA, Inc. and DMG MORI ELLISON Technologies will continue to present the successful Flip Over 5-Axis Technical Event in Ohio on June 3 and 5. The June 3 event will be in the Hamilton (Cincinnati) Ellison office and the June 5 event in the Brecksville (Cleveland) office.
The first edition of this seminar was held in southern California and was attended by over 80 participants. Flip Over 5-Axis is a seminar and workshop event focused on introducing 5-axis techniques to people currently working with 3 and 4-axis machine tools. Through straight-forward CAM software programming tools and intuitive user interface on NC controls, customers can program, set-up and machine complex parts with fewer set-ups and higher quality than typical with multi-operation procedures and complex work offsets to reach multiple faces. “The obstacles to entering 5-axis programming are not large. And they are widely used in today’s market”, states Alan Levine, Managing Director of OPEN MIND Technologies USA Inc.
The presentation format includes short verbal presentations, cutting of typical parts on DMU 50 Ecoline (3+2) machine and another on DMU 50 (5x simultaneous) milling machine. The cutting is followed by a panel discussion lead by customers that have recently adopted 5-axis technology, who will provide their stories and take questions from the audience.
Additional dates are being scheduled as the tour continues to other Ellison offices. Registration can be found on Ellison web site. DMG Mori provides milling machines, lathes, and multi-tasking machines in many sizes and for many applications.
hyperMILL® brings together innovative 5-axis techniques, together with strong 2.5D and 3-axis solutions, and mill-turn in a consistent programming environment. Well known for complex 5-axis applications, hyperMILL also provides streamlined processing and cost-effective solutions for multi-sided machining. A start-up utility automatically defines and names standard programming faces, stock and milling areas. Feature recognition can quickly search the model and map holes and pockets, and define reference coordinate systems.
Visitors will be able to meet with OPEN MIND staff and view software demonstrations during the event. Somehow even Esprit might have a table display – why?
