OPEN MIND to Highlight Advanced hyperMILL®
CAD/CAM Software Suite at MD&M West 2022
31.01.2022 — OPEN MIND Technologies, a leading developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, has announced it will be featuring its hyperMILL® CAD/CAM software suite at MD&M West - Booth #2977, at the Anaheim Convention Center, CA from April 12-14, 2022. hyperMILL® offers medical manufacturers powerful NC programming in applications for 2.5D, 3D and 5-axis machining in prototype and production manufacturing, especially when maximum speed, precision and flexibility are critical.
MD&M attendees can see hyperMILL® MAXX Machining which offers three powerful modules for roughing, drilling and finish milling often beneficial on complex 5-axis components. hyperMILL® MAXX Machining enables high-performance cutting including in challenging materials such as titanium and stainless steel alloys. Enabling uninterrupted cutting, OPEN MIND will feature hyperMILL® 3D and 5-axis equidistant finishing for machining surfaces with a uniform 3D infeed, resulting in very fine surface finishes when used in combination with high precision surface mode and smooth overlap techniques. These finishing strategies are especially well-suited for high-speed cutting. Also to be highlighted at the show, the hyperMILL® 5-axis swarf cutting and barrel cutter capabilities are ideal for slightly curved surfaces such as those on bone plates. This functionality significantly reduces machining time and optimizes surface finishes.
Parts with similar geometries such as component families and variants, recurring shape elements, features such as holes or pockets and repetitive processes, provide an ideal opportunity to implement automated CAM programming. hyperMILL® automation technology, which helps to reduce programming times, standardize processes, eliminate human error and improve overall throughput will also be demonstrated at the show.
OPEN MIND will also feature the ADDITIVE Manufacturing capability option in hyperMILL® CAM software to support 3D printing/ additive processes. hyperMILL® with ADDITIVE Manufacturing provides efficient hybrid processing with additive and subtractive processing, including material deposition, on one machine. For highly complex 5-axis simultaneous processing, hyperMILL® ADDITIVE Manufacturing enables an array of flexible options for any Directed Energy Deposition process (DED) such as Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM), Laser Powder, Laser Hot-Wire, and Electro-Beam Hot-Wire, and more. hyperMILL®® enables users to perfectly program the cladding and milling together. True-to-detail additive and subtractive simulation as well as stock tracking between the individual process steps, guarantee the greatest possible reliability.
