OPEN MIND Technologies to Feature Advanced hyperMILL® CAM Software at EMO 2019

Latest Milling, Turning, 5-Axis & Virtual Machining Capabilities to be Highlighted.

OPEN MIND Technologies, a leading developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, has announced it will feature its advanced hyperMILL® CAM software at EMO (Hannover, Germany), Booth C04 in Hall 9 from September 16 -  1, 2019. Highlights will include high-precision milling and turning, as well as the latest strategies in its hyperMILL® MAXX Machining High-Performance Package and hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining, a NC code-based simulation solution. OPEN MIND will have live demonstrations showcasing efficient machining processes resulting in parts with mirror-smooth surface finishes.

Several strategies in the hyperMILL® MAXX Machining High-Performance Package will be demonstrated including a Perfect Pocketing technology from OPEN MIND that ensures efficient pocket processing using high-feed milling cutters. And intelligent algorithm identifies the largest pocket for roughing, and automatically generates linear toolpaths accordingly.

Also, the new 5-Axis Prismatic fillet finishing function in hyperMILL® MAXX Machining will be highlighted at EMO. 5-Axis Prismatic fillet finishing enables the geometry and automatic inclination of barrel cutters to be applied similar to high feed cutters, using a plunging and pulling movement at extremely high feed rates. Maximum performance is attainable using conical barrel cutters (also known as arc segment or circle segment end mills). Ball or bull nose end mills can also be efficiently utilized with this milling strategy.

Developed with Industry 4.0 in mind, hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining enables constant real time bi-directional communication between the machine tool controller and remote hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining simulation, significantly improving manufacturing workflow. At EMO this year, OPEN MIND will introduce CONNECTED Machining, a module of hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining. For optimal data exchange between the programming and machining processes, CONNECTED Machining utilizes the NC code after post-processing to enable real time synchronization and simulation between the machine and hyperMILL®. In addition, based on processing results, the hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining NC Optimizer automatically selects paths that consider limited machine axes or consider potential interference with asymmetric machine head.
