Part diversity – flexibility is key
Are you milling prototypes from a solid block? Do you make forging dies and thermoforming tools? Or do you have secondary operations after investment castings or printed implants? hyperMILL® has the right toolpaths for the entire range of parts in the medical device industry. Generate secure NC codes easily and flexibly and significantly reduce your costs-per-part.
Variety of materials – CAM system as an important factor
Are you challenged trying to machine titanium, cobalt-chrome or UHMWPE? Use the powerful tool database with interfaces to catalogs from well-known tool manufacturers.
Suitable technology parameters combined with proven 2.5D, 3D or 5-axis strategies are crucial for success. Even the most demanding materials can be easily machined with hyperMILL®.
Automate with ease
Do you produce many part families in several standard sizes every day?
Automate CAM programming of bone plates, knee implants or forging dies for hip stems with hyperMILL®. Numerous, successfully implemented automation projects with our customers speak for themselves. You can take advantage of this enormous potential for time savings as well!

Every component of a knee prosthesis has different manufacturing challenges: A variety of geometries of the femoral and tibial component. Material that is difficult to machine, such as cobalt-chromium in the femoral part and UHMWPE in inlays. With hyperMILL® you are prepared for all challenges of knee implant milling.
Producing hip shafts in all variants requires know-how in many areas. Prototypes made from a solid block or forging dies for production can be machined comfortably, in highest quality.
Successfully milling bone plates depends on many factors. Machining them in just one setup requires a CAM system with reliable 5-axis capabilities. hyperMILL® offers reliable toolpaths for demanding titanium materials.
Implants for spines are extremely diverse. Cervical plates, spinal cages or stabilization systems challenge manufacturers for various reasons. Here, too, it is important to get to the NC code quickly and comfortably.

They are important supporters in the daily business of surgery. Often finish machining of the casted housings is necessary. But this increases production costs enormously. That's why it is important to quickly get to safe NC code. No matter if it is simple tapping or complex 5-axis machining. hyperMILL® offers you the necessary flexibility and user-friendliness.
The development of containers to hold kits with sterile medical devices is commonplace. For the manufacturing of thermoforming tools, hyperMILL® already plays an important role for many of our customers. Because with the right CAM software you save programming and machining times. Feature recognition can be helpful to organize pockets and holes. Avoid time-consuming ball mill finishing and start finishing in record time. With conical barrel cutters and our hyperMILL® MAXX Machining finishing module, you can manufacture your tools much more economically.

hyperMILL® 5-Axis Machining: Lamination Anchor
This video shows the 5-axis machining process of a lamination anchor for the medical device industry on a Hermle C 12 U dynamic using tools by Emuge Franken. Machining such parts requires a reliable and flexible CAM solution with strong 5-axis capabilities. hyperMILL® fulfills all these requirements.
PEEK Spinal Cage Machining in one Setup
This video shows an effective way to machine a spinal cage in one setup thanks to hyperMILL®’s powerful 5-axis technology. It was made from PEEK which is known for being a challenging material. hyperMILL® offers efficient CAM strategies for machining such challenging materials whether it is for roughing or finishing purposes. The tools used are from Zecha’s IGUANA series which are high-end cutting tools for such materials.
Efficient toolpaths. No re-clamping. No non-productive times.
Femoral Component – Knee Implant
This video shows the roughing and finishing process of a femoral component made on a Makino DA-300 using Seco cutting tools. This implant is made from Cobalt-Chrome and it was 3D printed. Accelerating secondary processes is important when it comes to achieving time savings. This example shows what is possible using conical barrel cutters instead of conventional ball mill cutters. The results are impressive.
