First, the printed component is carefully analyzed so that the subsequent processes can be better estimated. To facilitate analysis, the component and the print stock data are uploaded into CAD system.
The clamping setup can be derived based on the print stock data. As such, the later clamping position can be mapped true-to-detail in the CAD system and used for later collision checks. All machining steps for CAD preparation and CAM programming are stored in one single file.
Since printed components do not have precision features, precise positioning is typically difficult. We have the solution: The different probing strategies in hyperMILL® precisely measure and perfectly define component position.
hyperMILL® also efficiently secures the machining of hard-to-reach areas and features. Collision checks and collision avoidance ensure an extremely high level of process reliability as far as this is concerned. Additionally, our proven 5-axis strategies make follow-up work much easier.
hyperMILL® is also indispensable when it comes to the final check of precision features: Our solution includes probing strategies that can be used to review whether post-process parts actually fully correspond to quality requirements.
