hyperMILL® MAXX Machining

MAXXimum Performance in Drilling, Roughing, and Finishing.

Speed is critical to running a high performance company. This is why we developed hyperMILL® MAXX Machining, a performance package for drilling, roughing, and finishing that saves a tremendous amount of time while delivering top quality. This allows CAM programmers to maximize machine performance for any application quicker and easier than ever before.

Optimized pocket strategies and trochoidal toolpaths ensure extremely fast material removal. Innovative strategies for barrel cutters and rollFEED® turning inserts allow finishing to take place in record time.

Three Modules for MAXXimum Performance

Our hyperMILL® MAXX Machining package comprises three separate modules for highly efficient drilling, roughing, and finishing. The package guarantees maximum performance for any machining application with up to 90% time savings!

Roughing Features

  • Creation of spiral and trochoidal-like tool paths for 2D, 3D and 5-axis simultaneous machining
  • Intelligent feedrate adjustment
  • Fast repositioning in high-speed mode, with the tool being raised slightly off the bottom
  • Full cuts and abrupt changes in direction are prevented
  • Intelligent division of cuts during 3D machining
  • High-volume material removal in next to no time, even with tough workpieces

Drilling Features

  • Fast and efficient material removal, especially for tough materials
  • Excellent for opening deep cavities using large milling heads
  • No pre-drilling necessary
  • Tool-friendly
  • Safe removal of chips, even in deep drill holes
  • Suitable for milling tools that are not center cutting
  • Strategy is as easy as programming a drill hole

Finishing Features

  • Much greater step-over distances with the same theoretical scallop height
  • Hard-to-reach areas can now be finished better
  • Efficient and reliable finishing strategies
  • Reduced number of tools

Aerospace aluminum structure part | GROB G550

This aerospace aluminum structure part was programmed with CAM software hyperMILL® and its innovative and powerful CAM strategies. An incredible machining time of only 2 hours and 15 minutes has been achieved due to high-performance strategies like 5-axis tangent plane machining, 5-axis helical drilling and the Linking-Technology.
