    Practicality: Our recipe for success

    OPEN MIND’s CAD/CAM products are unique.

    Our practical, innovative solutions arise from our proximity to the machine tool, the CNC controller and the part that is to be produced. Practicality is therefore an essential factor for OPEN MIND’s successful development, which has been shaped by numerous milestones.
