The key focus for OPEN MIND at the Birmingham NEC event will be the hyperMILL® MAXX Machining performance package that will introduce highly efficient machining strategies for optimising the performance of your machine tool.
hyperMILL® MAXX Machining incorporates innovative methods for roughing, finishing and drilling. OPEN MIND has also been instrumental in developing the next generation of conical barrel cutting tools for the 5-axis tangent plane machining strategy. The increasingly popular conical barrel cutter has a large radii that enables correspondingly wide distances between tool paths. With regards to roughing strategies, OPEN MIND has also lived up to its reputation as a pioneer in 5-axis machining with the 5-axis trochoidal roughing strategy that is a unique machining task for quickly milling curved surfaces in a way that is very tool-friendly.
The Advanced Engineering show will also give the UK marketplace a first glance at some of the new innovations launched at the recent AMB Exhibition in Stuttgart. For instance, in the future, hyperMILL® MAXX Machining will be available for 3D-optimised roughing as well as for turning. Meanwhile, 5-axis tangent machining is available for corner filleting. This function guarantees simple radius programming at surface boundaries.
