Finishing faster than ever
This package for finishing with barrel cutters provides strategies that set almost no limits for machining. With time savings of up to 90 percent, this puts hyperMILL® performance in a league of its own.
Our innovative finishing module features perfect surfaces created in a very short time. Innovative strategies for the machining of planes, surfaces with any curvature, and prismatic fillets facilitate highly efficient finishing. Compared to conventional methods, time savings of up to 90 percent can be achieved when combining the method with a conical barrel cutter. Intelligent automated functions ensure optimal tool orientation and fit. Plus, hard-to-reach areas can be machined with ease.
Tangent plane machining
This powerful strategy was specifically designed for processing even surfaces in wall and floor areas. Two types of machining are available to users. When using indexed machining, the surface is machined with different orientations in specific areas. With simultaneous machining, the entire surface is machined simultaneously. Active collision avoidance and a constantly changing tool inclination mean that even areas that are difficult to access can be machined reliably.
Tangent machining is the best strategy for perfect machining of surfaces with any degree of continuous curvature! hyperMILL® fully creates the toolpaths automatically for efficient single- and multi-surface machining. Intelligent algorithms ensure that the tool always tilts optimally over the contact point of the milling cutter. This results in safe machining of the entire surface and uniform utilization of the cutting radius.
Prismatic fillet finishing
Prismatic fillet finishing is a new method for the efficient processing of fillets. Extremely high feed rates can be achieved with piercing and pulling tool movements. Inclined barrel cutters are used like high feed milling cutters. The strategy automatically calculates the required inclination and contact point of the barrel cutter. This allows users to achieve high-quality transitions between different surfaces.

Conical barrel cutter
The conical barrel cutter represents a completely new type of milling tool geometry that was developed by OPEN MIND. Thanks to this innovation, faces with minimal curvature can be efficiently machined.
