For the use of high feed rate cutters

Optimized pocket strategies and highly precise tool­paths for the use of high feed rate cutters: The Perfect Pocketing Technology provides added speed in a vast range of applications.

Perfect Pocketing Technology: The name says it all. This innovative technology fits pockets perfectly into the area to be machined. At the same time, it optimizes the tool­paths for high feed milling. Linear tool­paths ensure maximum feed rates for both standard and high feed rate cutters. The advantages of this tech­no­logy can be seen especially in the aero­space industry and machining on large machines.


  • Reduced machining times
  • Generation of linear tool­paths
  • Tool potentials are fully exploited
  • Optimized machining especially when using high feed milling cutters
  • Easy to program


  • Automatic creation of linear tool­paths for maximum feed rates
  • Optimized machining especially when using high feed milling cutters
  • The blade geometry of the milling tools is fully accounted for in the CAM system
  • Simple operation

The Perfect Pocketing Technology

Details about the Perfect Pocketing technology in hyperMILL® MAXX Machining

Adaptive Pocket

This function fits pockets optimally into the area to be roughened. This means that as much of the area as possible is machined with linear ma­chi­ne movements. The machining can be carried out as a pocket or as a pocket in conjunction with contour-parallel tool­paths. Especially when dealing with large pockets, machining with a high feed milling cutter and subsequent rest machining gets the job done faster than contour-parallel roughing of the entire pocket.

High Feed Machining

hyperMILL® allows users to take full advantage of high feed milling cutters’ special blade geo­met­ries. The lateral infeed can be automatically calculated by defining a scallop height. Special retract movements have been implemented to avoid rest material in corners.
