Open Mind Technologies AG highlights the capabilities of hyperMILL CAM software in Booth 123 at Amerimold.

Open Mind Technologies AG highlights the capabilities of hyperMILL CAM software. The software’s MAXX Machining finishing module, a performance package of the hyperMILL CAM software suite, is a CAM programming source that enables the use of conical barrel cutter technology to reduce cycle times by more than 90 percent. The company says that MAXX Machining is ideal for planar, ruled and curved surfaces in complex five-axis components. hyperMILL MAXX Machining offers three modules for finishing, roughing and drilling.

hyperMILL 2018.1 includes a new "global fitting" feature that simplifies the definition of complex surfaces or patches of surfaces. Many of the software’s strategies recognize and follow the ISO u-v orientation of the surface patch. hyperMILL MAXX Machining finishing is one technique that benefits from having a simplified surface definition. hyperCAD-S Electrode automates the construction and manufacturing of electrodes for die-sinking. Users can choose their electrodes from the face to be die-sunk within the component geometry with no special expertise required. hyperMILL 2018.1 includes an easy-to-use rotational electrode feature that facilitates the circular placement of multiple electrode geometries with different spark gaps on a holder.
