The Multi­blade package

5‑axis CAM software – the Multi­blade package from OPEN MIND: As simple as a standard app­li­ca­tion.

Impellers and blisks can be programmed without special knowledge using this application. Integrated au­to­ma­ted functions in the Multi­blade package reduce the number of parameters that need to be entered to a minimum. Proven collision checking guarantees a very high level of process reliability. The use of robust tools allows machining with high in­feed parameters and feed rates.

5‑axis Machining: Impeller milling

Faster machining with FANUC and hyperMILL® CAM software to meet the manufacturing challenges of engine components.

 
roughing | impeller blisk | multiblade | 5-axis –

Multi­blade roughing

In the roughing cycle, the blades are machined in a continual process starting from pre-turned stock or a semi-finished workpiece. No time-consuming simulation of the removal of material is required.

plunge roughing | impeller blisk | multiblade | 5-axis –

Multi­blade plunge roughing

Plunge roughing is an alternative if a horizontal feed rates cannot be effectively achieved with long, slim tools. This process allows the most rigid tool to be employed to rough a pocket between blades. This is provided as an optional module.

Multi­blade hub finishing

The tool­path profile can adjust the hub’s aero­dynamic behavior and appearance to suit individual customer requirements. This machining strategy can also be applied as rest machining near blades.

point milling | impeller blisk | multiblade | 5-axis –

Multi­blade point milling

This HSC strategy is characterized by continuous, spiral machining movements with tool point contact. This allows superb milling of even highly curved blades.

flank milling | impeller blisk | multiblade | 5-axis –

Multi­blade flank milling

If the blade surfaces allow for sufficiently precise swarf cutting, the Flank Milling cycle can be used. This reduces machining time. hyperMILL® 5AXIS automatically calculates the optimal tool nestling.

edge milling | impeller blisk | multiblade | 5-axis –

Multi­blade edge milling

This machining strategy is used whenever leading and trailing edges cannot be generated together with the flow areas in a single ope­ra­tion.

fillet milling | impeller blisk | multiblade | 5-axis –

Multi­blade fillet milling

This is the ideal strategy when the radii between the hub and the blade surfaces vary. This strategy also facilitates rest material machining – the basic requirement for choosing an optimal tool for blade and hub machining.
