High-Performance Stock Removal

Jossi Orthopedics AG, based in lslikon, Switzerland, is a leading manufacturer of orthopaedic implants. Jossi Orthopedics relies on hyperMILL® from OPEN MIND Technologies AG to create CAM programs.

People need orthopaedic implants when joints are damaged due to an accident or other cause. Manufacturers of workpieces and systems like this have to work with complex geometries and challenging materials such as titanium alloys, cobalt-chromium and high-alloyed steels. Jossi Orthopedics AG, based in lslikon, Switzerland, has mastered the materials and all of the processes required to machine them. Jossi Orthopedics also uses turn-mill centres from MORI SEIKI and a large number of machining centres from Hurco and Hermle to machine implants and tools.

hyperMILL® came out on top in the end, as it provides simple and efficient operation during 5-axis programming.“

The best-possible CAM system for their programming needs

In order to find the best-possible CAM system for their programming needs, it was necessary to undertake a selection process that also reviewed two other CAM systems under consideration. “hyperMILL® came out on top in the end, as it provides simple and efficient operation during 5-axis programming,” reports Midhat Dedovic, Head of Multi-Axis Manufacturing at Jossi Orthopedics.

Use everything the system has to offer

There are now two hyperMILL® workstations in use for manufacturing and another one is used to train apprentices. “When it comes to the two production workstations, we use everything the system has to offer, apart from the special applications,” explains Midhat Dedovic. This results in a solution that the machines can optimally exploit for every type of part, thus contributing to the short manufacturing times mentioned earlier.
