Great interest in reducing machining times with hyperMILL® MAXX Machining

Chicago (US), Sep 27, 2016 – OPEN MIND Technologies USA looks back on a very successful appearance at IMTS. Visitors at the International Manufacturing Technology Show were dazzled by the hyperMILL® MAXX Machining performance package. Machining experts from a wide range of industries were impressed by the enormous time savings offered by the strategies for roughing, finishing and drilling. 

The 5axis tangent plane machining strategy with conical barrel cutters received a great deal of attention. OPEN MIND went beyond its usual sphere of activities in order to develop this innovative method of machining, which results in time savings of 90 per cent in practice. The machining strategy uses a new type of conical barrel cutter that features exceptionally large radius of up to 1,000 millimetres, enabling milling with large step-over distances. The visitors were also very interested in our demonstrations at the CAM workstations, which presented the machining options provided by the performance package’s roughing and drilling strategies.

The 5axis-optimised rest material roughing strategy also attracted a lot of attention. High-speed cutting (HSC) allows optimised toolpaths to be generated for rest material machining, based on a preceding roughing operation.
