hyperMILL® increases efficiency in machining
Wessling (Germany), Feb 10, 2015 – OPEN MIND Technologies AG, one of the leading CAD/CAM software developers, is set to present at TECMA. OPEN MIND will be on hand at Booth 1232 in Hall B at the key international Mexican trade fair for machine tools to demonstrate how hyperMILL® expands CNC machining options and optimises processes.
The CAM/CAD software from OPEN MIND, one of the world’s leading CAM manufacturers according to the NC Market Analysis Report 2014 compiled by CIMdata, is in increasingly high demand among Mexican manufacturing companies. OPEN MIND also scores points in this market with CAM machining strategies that use CNC machines more gently and efficiently. Major innovations in the latest version concern hyperMAXX®, the high-performance cutting (HPC) module for hyperMILL®. New functions include plunging the milling tool into the material at pre-drilled holes, meaning it is no longer necessary to ramp in the milling tool at the start of machining and stress on the tool is reduced when it comes to materials that are difficult to cut. The entire machining process is collision-checked and it is now possible to select a zigzag mode in hyperMAXX®. This mode is suited to machining large workpieces, as it prevents time-consuming redundant movements and the machining time is shortened.
CAD for CAM users
hyperCAD®-S, the CAD part of the hyperMILL® suite, is specifically designed for CAM users. Their requirements were given priority during the development of the new Solids module. The highly intuitive and time-saving direct modelling process makes it possible to easily create and modify solid models. The hyperCAD®-S Solids module allows all solid models to be reliably imported, created, converted, modified and combined.
Greater safety and more clarity
OPEN MIND will also showcase the hyperMILL® ShopViewer, a visualisation solution for the workshop. hyperMILL® ShopViewer makes it possible to view and examine data from hyperMILL® and hyperCAD®-S in more detail directly next to the machine. Here, the system provides the specialist operating the machine with all of the information related to manufacturing data, geometry and component structure. Specialists can apply their experience and report back to the CAM programmer.
