Efficient 3D Machining for Simple and Complex Components

hyperMILL 3d cam software 

Powerful and precise functions for 3D milling

hyperMILL CAM software offers powerful and precise functions for 3D milling. hyperMILL also enables the production of simple and complex components with high-quality surfaces generated quickly, reliably and efficiently.

Numerous strategies for roughing and finishing ensure efficient 3D machining. The toolpaths are always calculated with the aim of optimizing manufacturing times. An example of this is the avoidance of unnecessary rapid movements and redundant movements.

Even more performance

The high-performance cutting (HPC) functions in hyperMILL MAXX Machining help to further improve performance, particularly during roughing. The functions for high-speed cutting (HSC) also satisfy the highest demands for precision, surface quality, tool life and machine dynamics. Gentle infeed movements, spiral approach movements and rounded corners are all features that contribute to achieving high feed rates.

Thanks to its comprehensive automation solutions, hyperMILL also offers enormous potential for savings in the area of 3D programming.

hyperMILL 3D-Strategies: Plane Machining

With 3D plane machining the user can program single or multiple planar surfaces quickly with full collision checking. All planar surfaces are detected automatically using a boundary. It is also possible to define the milling areas manually via surface selection. In order to machine planar surfaces as quickly as possible, an efficient pocket strategy is used.
