Tire Molds Reliably and Effectively
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.
