There are many ways to position the tool in multi-axis machining. The quality and efficiency of the milling operation is largely dependent on the solution that is selected. With the complexity of multi-axis machining, it is often not possible to find the optimal overall solution when setting the axis position manually.
During the postprocessor run, the hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining Optimizer always finds the best collision-free tool position automatically. In doing so, the Optimizer takes into account special kinematic properties of the machine and user-specific properties for collision avoidance. This avoids programming errors or subsequent editing of the machining program. The hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining Optimizer always guarantees optimal, collision-free machining.
