A central CAD/CAM software platform that supports all of your process steps

Tool and mold making includes a wide range of processes with demanding manufacturing tasks. With the power­ful, efficient and complete hyperMILL® CAM solution, manufacturers benefit from a central CAD/CAM software platform that supports all of your process steps through­out the entire production value chain.

Manufacturers producing punching and forming tools for the sheet metal industry or mold tools for injection molding and die casting are constantly faced with new challenges. To face the challenges with a ‘future-proof’ production method, high-quality CNC machining must be guaranteed, through­put times minimized, and productivity increased.
hyperMILL® always offers you the right solution to carry out your tasks efficiently. In just one system, hyperMILL® provides: CAD, CAM, electrode production, wire EDM, measurement and simulation. You can also use the hyperMILL® Automation Center to partially or fully automate all of your work steps.
The innovative hyperMILL® CAD/CAM soft­ware solution makes it possible to implement all your tool and mold making projects economically and safely.

Electrode production is a major time and cost factor, especially in the mold making industry.

With hyperCAD®-S, our Electrode module maps the entire electrode process: starting with electrode development and milling, through to measurement and program out­put for the eroding machine tool.

With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can automatically create and program electrodes, benefitting from an integrated solution through our CAD/CAM system.

Probing on machine tools is essential if you want to achieve the highest possible level of safety, reduce through­put times, and enhance component quality.

With hyperMILL® you can flexibly create a wide variety of probing strategies from setting an origin and aligning through to in-process measuring and 3D point measuring for quality control.

The programming of the probing operations are simple, completely collision-checked and based on the machine cycles of the control.

Reliable simulation is essential to ensure error-free production whilst protecting your machine tools and cutting tools.

hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining is a power­ful solution that is more than just pure NC code simulation. With the help of a digital twin and the optimizer, dangerous situations and collisions are recognized, automatically resolved and avoided.

This unique module offers you a multi­tude of possibilities to perfect the NC code based on real machine data.

You can optimize and standardize your programming processes with our innovative automation solutions that allow you to control your processes centrally through the hyperMILL® AUTOMATION Center. It offers a range of options that go way beyond just recognizing features and applying pre­defined parameters.

End-users can select which CAD and CAM functions and processes they would like to partially or fully automated. This increases your through­put, makes the daily work of the programmer easier and it establishes company-wide standards.

Production planning and control is a central element for economical production and efficient through­put. With our Manufacturing E­xe­cu­ti­on System (MES) you can plan, control, and accelerate your pro­duc­ti­on processes.

All hyperMILL® processes can be integrated into the agile Hummingbird MES soft­ware that is controlled via a direct inter­face. We are now taking the next steps towards Industry 4.0 with hyperMILL® – it’s a journey you should join us on.
