Why OPEN MIND and hyperMILL® as a partner?
We went to IMTS to visit with CAM companies. We spoke with any available source regarding their tools and software to acquire first hand feedback. We later held specific meetings to further interview each software supplier, and then we touched base with users for specific references. We chose OPEN MIND because our research indicated it as the absolute top notch caliber software available for 5-axis machining. As a business owner, I wanted to be able to run simultaneous 5-axis projects immediately after we got the machine and the software but I was realistic enough to understand that would not happen overnight.
However, it is happening! Only four months into our process, we proved out the majority of the capabilities on the shop floor. That is just phenomenal. My machinist now tells me, “Absolutely, we can do that part!” It is so rewarding and reassuring to see his progress at such an early stage. As a team, we are completely satisfied with our choice of hyperMILL®.
