Innovative CAM Technology From the 5-axis Pioneer

Although 5-axis milling is one of the most challenging forms of CNC machining, OPEN MIND’s hyperMILL® CAM software simplifies the process. This enables programmers to generate 5-axis NC programs quickly and easily with reduced machining times, improved process reliability and high quality surface finishes.

5-axis programming does not need to be time-consuming, confusing or unreliable. OPEN MIND’s innovative 5-axis technology stands above other solutions due to its simple and user-friendly programming and also its reliable and intelligent algorithms for collision detection and avoidance.

Trend-setting 5-axis strategies

The trendsetting hyperMILL® 5-axis technology can generate significant time savings while reducing tool wear and increasing contour accuracy. Through continuous machining strategies, hyperMILL® delivers cost-efficient and highly-productive manufacturing. Challenging features such as high and steep walls require many different tool inclinations in precisely delineated milling areas, hyperMILL® calculates such features with ease.

5-axis milling is standard

5-axis simultaneous machining with hyperMILL® 5AXIS is based on what users are already familiar with - milling with a tilted tool. The machining process is now quicker, the surface results are better and programming is streamlined and less complicated. Thanks to easy programming with automatic collision checking and avoidance, this technology can also be a solution for standard milling jobs.
