The Tire package

5‑axis CAM Software: The Tire package from OPEN MIND offers automated pitch repetitions for more efficiency.

Whether using positive or negative molds – the Tire module mills tire molds more economically than ever be­fore. Automated milling strategies and special functions guarantee a simplified and efficient programming process. For example, sipes and stone ejector functions, as well as other details, are facilitated by a re­cur­ring arrangement of identical tire sections that is usually defined with a tire clock. Each area (pitch) must therefore be programmed only once.
The tire utility also copies the tool paths to the relevant positions in the tire. In doing so, the automated segment generation trims the tool paths that go beyond the segment limit. Optimized milling paths considerably reduce the machining time.

In addition to rapid finishing with end­mills and bull­nose cutters that allow large step­overs, this cycle can also be used for op­ti­mi­zed roughing on pre-turned stock. The tool follows the surface curvature ensuring more consistent remaining material on the floor and the profile walls.

Arbitrary stock roughing

This ensures that fine points are effectively worked. The exact tracking of remaining material helps to avoid redundant move­ments and guarantees a high degree of process reliability when using slender tools. The individual machining operations can be performed in any direction with various setups.

Optimized 5‑axis swarf cutting

Swarf cutting permits more effective machining of ruled surfaces. This cycle makes the milling of profile flanks and sharply angled inner corners very easy. Tapered tools can also be employed. The definition of milling and stop surfaces protects neighboring surfaces.

rest machining | tire | 5-axis –

5‑axis rest machining

The sharp edges of the tire molds can be machined precisely with slender tools without having to be reworked. This cycle recognizes all rest material areas, even in under­cuts. The ma­chi­ni­ng is performed on multiple segments in one collision-free operation. In addition, this cycle generates especially smooth movements.

5‑axis contouring

For 5‑axis reworking of edges and efficient programming of sipes, this cycle ensures contours with different tool positions are ma­chi­ned in one step. hyperMILL® combines the indi­vi­dual machining operations automatically with optimized tool­paths and collision-free tool movement.
