Navigation hyperMILL®: Optimised strategies from drilling to high-performance cutting


    OPEN MIND Technologies AG will be exhibiting at this year’s International Exhibition for Metal Working (AMB), which takes place from 16 to 20 September at Messe Stuttgart. At Booth B31 in Hall 4, the developer of CAM/CAD software and postprocessors will present the new 2014.1 version of its cam44 hyperMILL® CAM solution including the CAD section, enter site hyperCAD®-S, and the hyperMAXX® high-performance cutting module. The new version offers advanced 5-axis machining strategies and numerous convenient functions to facilitate operation.

    hyperCAD®-S is hyperMILL® ’s own CAD system that was developed specifically to address the requirements of CAM users. The ‘Deformation’ module is a completely new function that has been introduced to hyperCAD®-S. This powerful tool for the targeted deformation of geometries allows component areas to be modified globally and locally. Up to now, this was often only possible using elaborate modelling techniques. Further improvements to hyperCAD®-S include shortcut menus for toolpaths and the option to lock elements so that they cannot be deleted or edited.

    Intelligent 5-axis strategies – Drilling in workplanes

    5-axis rework machining also offers new functions. When converting from 3-axis toolpaths to 5-axis toolpaths, different tool types, such as barrel and woodruff cutters, can now be used. There are also new strategies for adjusting the tool to the machining model. This function can also be used for roughing with hyperMAXX®.

    The new 5-axis drilling technique is: ‘Drilling in workplanes’. This mode has many benefits and allows the user to define the direction of drilling using workplanes. Relative clearance planes are now used for the different workplanes according to user specifications. A global clearance plane was used in the past. This new and simplified procedure improves safety and has the advantage that it can be used on all machines.


    Easier and safer 5-axis drilling: A new drilling mode allows the user to define the direction of drilling using workplanes.
