Real-time Alignment with hyperMILL® BEST FIT – fast, safe, precise
With hyperMILL® BEST FIT, we have developed an intelligent part alignment procedure that is integrated in the CAM system, and therefore offers an efficient solution to this problem. The idea: real-time alignment in CAM. The unaligned part is probed on the machine using 3D probing, and the probing points are sent back to the CAM system in the form of a probing report. hyperMILL® BEST FIT then adjusts the NC code exactly to the real part position. So the virtual world (programming) is adapted to the real world (clamping), and not the other way around! The adapted NC code is then simulated in the virtual machine on the actual clamping setup, and automatically optimized using the NC Optimizer. To ensure a safe and accurate process, the machine operator then performs a verification probing. After that, the machine operator can start machining without having to align the component on the machine manually. The advantages include immense time savings, safe machining, and assured processes!
