hyperMILL® KNIFE Cutting

The complete CAM solution for ultra­sonic cutting with oscillating tangential cutting blades. In combination with proven milling strategies, the advantages of both technologies can be tapped into in a single user interface.

Many industries are investing in cutting-edge technology in order to further boost the performance of vehicles, air­planes, and wind turbines. The positive properties of composite materials have become an in­dispensable part of modern techno­logy. They are very stable, durable, and offer good insulation values against extreme temperatures as well as noise – not to mention their incredibly low weight. Efficient machining of honey­combs, fiber optic material, carbon fiber material, and foams requires the right technology and tools.

Programming ultra­sonic cutting with hyperMILL®

Cutting blade machining for contour cutting is simply programmed via a 6‑axis strategy and can be used immediately. hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining provides a real NC code simulation to reliably bring cha­llen­ging 6‑axis machining to the machine. The Optimizer automatically controls the correct orientation of the cutting blade via the sixth axis in the spindle. It also guarantees optimal machining within the machine limits for machines with limited rotation axes, such as fork head machines. Hazardous rotations and re­tract movements are prevented.
