Milling strategies for faces and special tasks

    Achieve the best possible surface quality quickly with simple CAM programming. 5-axis strategies such as Contour Machining, Top Milling, Swarf Cutting and Shape Offset Finishing allow hyperMILL® users to successfully solve a variety of manufacturing tasks.

    5-axis | faces | contouring machining

    5-axis contouring machining

    For milling grooves, scribing, engraving, deburring, and chamfering. With 5-axis Contouring, the tool is guided on or to the side of a curve with a fixed orientation to the surface. This strategy allows the user to manually change the tool orientation for an entire area or for a specific area, if necessary.

    5-axis | faces | top milling

    5-axis top milling

    For machining of large, moderately arched surfaces, top milling reduces cutting time by using greater step-over between adjacent paths. Automatically adapted tool tilt angles ensure high surface quality on concave surfaces. Thanks to multiple infeeds and stock detection, this strategy can also be used for very effective 5-axis roughing.

    5-axis | faces | swarf cutting

    5-axis swarf cutting

    For machining arched surfaces, swarf cutting machines the workpiece surface with the tool flank. Large step-overs between paths or full-depth cutting reduce milling time and improve the workpiece surface. Multiple axial and lateral infeeds make swarf cutting also suitable for roughing or combined semi-finish and finish operations. Defined stop and milling surfaces, as well as stock tracking, allow precise and simple optimisation of machining operations.

    5-axis | faces | shape offset finishing

    5-axis shape offset finishing

    Barrel cutter shapes that enable larger infeed are now supported by hyperMILL®.
    Benefit: Very short machining times and optimised surface quality.
    New, spiral movement sequences enable a constant, continuous infeed.
    Better surface quality.
