OPEN MIND presents hyperMILL® 2014.1
OPEN MIND Technologies AG, one of the leading developers of CAD/CAM software and postprocessors, has released version 2014.1 of the hyperMILL® CAM solution. More powerful basic features, improved automation options and new tools underscore the leading technological position of the CAM suite.
Reamers, barrel cutters in different designs and lens cutters can be fully exploited with the new version of hyperMILL®. The new 3D point measuring cycle helps to accelerate quality assurance processes.
Automatic rework machining
Improved 3D rest machining allows for the automatic detection of rest material areas where additional roughing is necessary. Additional roughing passes are calculated for these areas. 5axis rework machining has also been improved. When converting from 3axis toolpaths to 5axis toolpaths, different tool types, such as barrel and woodruff cutters, can be used. There are also new strategies for adjusting the tool to the machining model. The new function can also be used for the hyperMAXX® high-performance cutting module and inherit variable technology values.
hyperCAD®-S, the CAD system for CAM programmers, has been supplemented with the ‘Deformation’ module for the customised deforming of geometries. This powerful modification tool allows the global or local modification of component areas, which is otherwise only possible with elaborate modelling techniques.
