A Tradition of Innovation

For 25 years, OPEN MIND has been a global technology leader and one of the most sought-after solution providers for machine and controller-independent programming!

A True Pioneer & Technology Leader from the Start

25 years ago, the technology enthusiasts that founded OPEN MIND started with a big revolution: software for 5-axis simultaneous machining! OPEN MIND was the first CAM developer to offer this technology for tool and mold making. Today, the innovative hyperMILL® machining methods are the benchmark across all industries.

Perfect. Precise. Programming. Unique CAM Functions

With hyperMILL®, OPEN MIND offers customers from industry sectors one of the world’s best CAM/CAD solutions. Unique CAM functions ensure efficient 2.5D, 3D, 5-axis, HSC, HPC and mill/turn machining. Even complex 5-axis jobs can be implemented just as easily as 3D operations. One of the more recent development highlights is the hyperMILL® MAXX Machining performance package, which includes three innovative modules for drilling, roughing, and finishing. OPEN MIND was also instrumental in the development of the conical barrel cutter, which enables high-performance finishing. Time savings of up to 90 percent can now be achieved with this high-end tool when it is combined with OPEN MIND's ingenious machining strategies.

Renowned companies from a wide variety of industries around the world rely on the powerful hyperMILL® strategies to not only stay competitive over the long term, but to gain a clear advantage in the marketplace.

Since its inception, OPEN MIND has been developing state-of-the-art CAM technologies that ensure unparalleled safety and significantly reduced programming and machining times – all with one goal: perfect, precisely manufactured components!

Shaping the Digital Future

OPEN MIND is always thinking ahead and one step ahead of its rivals.The company’s innovation team draws on its extensive industry expertise and pioneering spirit to develop forward-looking, next generation technologies.

In order to retain its position as an industrial innovation leader, OPEN MIND works closely with its customers to develop and enhance hyperMILL®, bringing modern digital processes and technologies to the manufacturing arena which are the benchmark of industry.
In keeping with the spirit of Industry 4.0, hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining is the perfect fusion of the virtual and real world. The close interconnection of hyperMILL® and the modern machine tool delivers process control at a level that has never been achieved before. Bidirectional data exchange between the CAM/CAD software and machine controller makes hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining stand out in the field of digitization.

Companies all over the world rely on the automation solutions provided by hyperMILL® to significantly reduce their programming efforts. Thanks to the programming interfaces and scripting languages, hyperMILL® allows complete and partially automated NC program generation that can be fully integrated into existing process chains.

Innovative hyperMILL® strategies allow customers to always get the most out of their machines – today and in the future!
