Whatever the type of drilling task, hyperMILL® always offers the right cycle. This begins with simple tasks such as centering or drilling with chip breaks and it ends with complex deep hole drilling with various stepped and cross-holes.
The advanced featuremacro technology provided by hyperMILL® CAM software makes the complex drilling of hundreds of holes on multiple orientations easier for the user. NC programming becomes simple and extremely convenient as holes can be recognised reliably at all times. All hole types are listed clearly. These can then be programmed reliably and quickly, either manually or with the support of machining macros. The programming of drill holes can also be fully automated.
As the 5-axis pioneer, OPEN MIND’s long-term expertise is especially well-suited to the area of multi-axis machining. Drilling jobs with different tool angles can be combined conveniently in a single operation with an optimised traverse path. Furthermore, job linking allows any number of drilling jobs to be linked in close proximity to the workpiece. This greatly reduces auxiliary processing times. 5-axis helical drilling is another special 5-axis strategy provided by hyperMILL® – alongside thread milling and helical drilling. These operations cater for plunging into the material extremely quickly with the most economic use of tools.
