GROB Systems 5-AXiS LiVE!

OPEN MIND Technologies to feature advanced hyperMILL® CAM software at GROB Systems 5-AXiS LiVE! Technology event

OPEN MIND Technologies, a leading developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, has announced it will be GROB's exclusive CAM partner at 5-AXiS LiVE!, a GROB Technology Event featuring eight GROB partners. OPEN MIND will feature the latest release of its advanced hyperMILL® CAM software (version 2019.2), offering significant advantages when 5-axis machining. Two parts programmed with hyperMILL® will be showcased at the event, including a complex aerospace component and mold.

hyperMILL® MAXX Machining Finishing Module is ideal for curved surfaces, such as on this 5-axis aerospace structural component.

The event is scheduled for August 20, 2019 at GROB's Production Facility in Bluffton, Ohio from 9:00 a.m. through 6:30 p.m. Beginning at 7:30 a.m. attendees are welcome to arrive for breakfast and networking. The event is complimentary and manufacturing professionals are encouraged to attend.
More Details and to Register.

Attendees will learn how to expand their machining capabilities and discover new ideas for business growth at this one-day special event. A plant tour, informative seminars, and intriguing 5-axis machining demonstrations are all on the day's agenda. Mr. Greg Jones, Vice President of Smartforce Development, The Association for Manufacturing Technology will give a keynote presentation.

The hyperMILL® MAXX Machining Finishing Module, a performance package of the hyperMILL® CAM software suite, will be highlighted during OPEN MIND's demonstration. hyperMILL® MAXX Machining enables the use of conical barrel cutter technology to reduce cycle times over 90% and is ideal for planar, ruled and curved surfaces often found in complex 5-axis components. A new 5-axis Prismatic fillet finishing function in hyperMILL® MAXX Machining facilitates the geometry and automatic inclination of barrel cutters to be applied similarly to high feed cutters, using a plunging and pulling movement at extremely high feed rates. hyperMILL® MAXX Machining offers three powerful modules for finishing, roughing and drilling.

OPEN MIND is the only CAM vendor offering "factory-approved" postprocessors. The postprocessors are embedded/ integrated in hyperMILL® for efficiency and ease-of-use. The hyperMILL® CAM solution calculates toolpaths independently of machine and controller, and users can generate NC programs from this neutral data that are optimized to meet application requirements and matched with the machines and controllers to be used.
