hyperMILL® 2014 – Intelligent 5axis strategies

Wessling (Germany), 30 July 2014 – OPEN MIND Technologies AG, one of the leading developers of CAM/CAD software and postprocessors, will be exhibiting at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago, USA, from September 8 - 13, 2014. OPEN MIND will present its hyperMILL® 2014 CAM suite at Booth E3351. New features include advanced machining strategies in the areas of 5axis drilling and roughing, plus a deformation tool in hyperCAD®-S, OPEN MIND’s native CAD option.

Drilling in workplanes – this current hyperMILL® extension makes 5axis drilling much easier and safer. Instead of using global clearance planes, holes drilled in the same direction are now combined and defined via workplanes. The relative clearance planes of the infeed movements are then calculated automatically for the different planes. All the holes of a clearance plane form a job step.

Rework machining

5axis rework machining has also been further optimised. When converting from 3axis toolpaths to 5axis toolpaths, different tool types, such as barrel and woodruff cutters, can now be used. There are also new strategies for adjusting the tool to the machining model. The function can also be used for the hyperMAXX® high-performance cutting module.

CAD deformations

hyperCAD®-S, the CAD system for CAM programmers, has been supplemented with the ‘Deformation’ module for the customised deforming of geometries. This powerful modification tool allows the global or local modification of component areas, which is otherwise only possible with elaborate modelling techniques.
