Open Mind Technologies will showcase the advanced capabilities of hyperMILL CAM software at Amerimold. The software offers significant advantages when using five-axis machining. The latest software release has a range of features and enhancements, including an expanded finishing module in the hyperMILL MAXX Machining Performance Package. This package enables the use of conical barrel cutters (a.k.a. arc segment or circle segment end mills) to reduce cycle times over 90 percent and is ideal for planar, ruled and curved surfaces. It offers three powerful modules for finishing, roughing and drilling. A five-axis Prismatic fillet finishing function enables the geometry and automatic inclination of barrel cutters to be applied similar to high feed cutters, using a plunging and pulling movement at high feed rates. Maximum performance is attainable using conical barrel cutters. Ball or bull nose end mills can also be efficiently utilized with this milling strategy.
The company also offers hyperCAD-S in the 2019.1 suite, specially optimized for CAM requirements, which includes polyline management, enabling CAD functions, such as lengthening or shortening to be applied by the polylines element type. Polylines can also be machined similar to other elements, with trim, join, orient or select.
