Program and Mill Impellers and Blisks Reliably and Effectively

The Multiblade package

5-axis CAM software – the Multiblade package from OPEN MIND: As simple as a standard application.

Impellers and blisks can be programmed without special knowledge using this application. Integrated automated functions in the Multiblade package reduce the number of parameters that need to be entered to a minimum. Proven collision checking guarantees a very high level of process reliability. The use of robust tools allows machining with high infeed parameters and feed rates.


Multiblade roughing 

In the roughing cycle, the blades are machined in a continual process starting from pre-turned stock or a semi-finished workpiece. No time-consuming simulation of the removal of material is required.

plunge roughing

Multiblade plunge roughing 

Plunge roughing is an alternative if a horizontal feed rates cannot be effectively achieved with long, slim tools. This process allows the most rigid tool to be employed to rough a pocket between blades. This is provided as an optional module.


hub finishing

Multiblade hub finishing 

The toolpath profile can adjust the hub’s aerodynamic behavior and appearance to suit individual customer requirements. This machining strategy can also be applied as rest machining near blades.

point milling

Multiblade point milling 

This HSC strategy is characterized by continuous, spiral machining movements with tool point contact. This allows superb milling of even highly curved blades.


flank milling

Multiblade flank milling 

If the blade surfaces allow for sufficiently precise swarf cutting, the Flank Milling cycle can be used. This reduces machining time. hyperMILL 5AXIS automatically calculates the optimal tool nestling.

edge milling

Multiblade edge milling 

This machining strategy is used whenever leading and trailing edges cannot be generated together with the flow areas in a single operation.


fillet milling

Multiblade fillet milling 

This is the ideal strategy when the radii between the hub and the blade surfaces vary. This strategy also facilitates rest material machining – the basic requirement for choosing an optimal tool for blade and hub machining.
