OPEN MIND Technologies, a leading developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, has announced that Ramco Machine, LLC (Rowley, MA U.S.A) is helping to impact the future of space exploration by using hyperMILL CAM software and 5-axis machining to make parts for an advanced NASA satellite mission.
Version 2020.1 of the hyperMILL CAD/CAM suite is now available. This software release provides additional user-friendliness for hyperMILL programmers. Enhancements are to programming tasks, and also to make machining quicker and simpler.
OPEN MIND offers a number of strategies for high-precision processing as standard functions within it hyperMILL CAD/CAM suite. hyperMILL allows tolerances in the µm range and ultra-smooth surfaces to be created. This often makes reworking processes like secondary polishing or hand finishing obsolete.
The hyperMILL MAXX Machining performance package, a powerful tool for high-performance drilling, roughing, and finishing features special machining strategies that allow users to gain maximum benefit from their machining center and cutters. Two key enhancements have been added to the performance package: Perfect pocketing technology ensures more efficient pocket machining with high-feed cutters. High-performance finishing and roughing strategies are also available for turning.
The latest version of the hyperMILL CAD/CAM suite, 2019.1, is now available. Open Mind, one of the leading manufacturers of CAD/CAM solutions, has expanded the finishing module in the hyperMILL MAXX Machining performance package. Further highlights include process optimizations as well as new functions for reducing calculation times.
Open Mind Technologies AG has introduced Version 2018.2 of its hyperMILL CAD/CAM suite. In this new release, numerous features – such as drill hole and pocket recognition as well as 3D-optimized roughing have been further improved.
True to EMO 2017’s theme ‘Networked systems for intelligent production’, CAM/CAD manufacturer Open Mind is debuting hyperMILL Virtual Machining, a key component for implementing digital production systems. The simulation solution creates a perfect virtual rendering of reality in the machine based on NC data. Built with Industry 4.0 in mind, the tool generates a bi-directional communication link between the machine control and the hyperMILL Virtual Machining Center, thus delivering a new level of process control and optimisation.
The aerospace industry is one of the most technically challenging industries in the world. There are growing pressures to look at new manufacturing methods to reduce production times and increase efficiency. One of the determining factors in the production chain is the choice of the right CAM solution. Reduced machining times with high material removal rates of up to 95 per cent require state-of-the-art CAM solutions. Open Mind, a leading developer of CAM/CAD-Software, offers with its CAM system hyperMILL intelligent solutions to meet the challenges rising in the aerospace industry.
Open Mind Technologies AG is set to exhibit its NC code-based hyperMILL Virtual Machining Center machine simulation for the first time at this year’s EMO. Live machining demonstrations using the innovative strategies provided by the hyperMILL MAXX Machining performance package will be performed on Stand A08 in Hall 25. The developer of CAM/CAD software and post-processors will also offer a first glimpse of its upcoming hyperMILL version 2018.1 at the trade fair, which will take place in Hanover, Germany.
