Solve a variety of manufacturing tasks quickly with simple CAM programming

Achieve the best possible surface quality quickly with simple CAM programming. 5‑axis stra­te­gies such as Contour Machining, Top Milling, Swarf Cutting and Shape Offset Finishing allow hyperMILL® users to successfully solve a variety of manufacturing tasks.

5‑axis contouring machining

5‑axis contouring is suitable for milling grooves, scribing, engraving, deburring and chamfering. With 5‑axis contouring, the tool is guided on or to the side of a curve with a fixed orientation to the surface. This strategy allows the user to manually change the tool orientation for an entire area or for a specific area, if necessary.

5‑axis top milling

For machining large and moderately arched surfaces, top milling reduces cutting time by using greater step-overs between adjacent paths. Automatically adapted tool tilt angles ensure high surface quality on concave surfaces. Thanks to multiple in­feeds and stock detection, this strategy can also be used for very effective 5‑axis roughing.

swarf cutting | faces | 5-axis –

5‑axis swarf cutting

For machining arched surfaces, swarf cutting processes the work­piece surface with the tool flank. Large step-overs between paths or full-depth cutting reduce milling time and improve the work­piece surface. Multiple axial and lateral in­feeds make swarf cutting suitable for roughing or combined semi-finish and finish operations. Defined stop and milling surfaces as well as stock tracking permit precise and simple optimization of machining operations.

5‑axis shape offset finishing

A bull­nose end mill can achieve higher productivity compared to a ball end mill when finishing slightly curved surfaces. The tool is always oriented along the surface normals. This strategy allows the curved surfaces to be machined with a consistent off­set while the milling paths follow the selected guide surface. The side walls can also be machined with this strategy.
