AMB 2018 in Stuttgart will once again become the hub of European metalworking this week (18-22 September) and Open Mind Technologies will present the latest version of its HyperMill CADCAM suite at Stand 2B20. The company’s presence at the trade fair will focus on the HyperMill Maxx Machining performance package.
HyperMill Maxx Machining incorporates novel methods for roughing, finishing and drilling. Open Mind has also been instrumental in developing the cutting tool for this five-axis tangent plane machining strategy. The conical barrel cutter has a large radius that enables correspondingly wide distances between tool paths. With regards to roughing, Open Mind will present its five-axis trochoidal strategy, which offers a tool-friendly way of quickly milling curved surfaces.
At AMB, Open Mind will also provide some sneak peeks at pending expansions to its performance package. For instance, in the future, HyperMill Maxx Machining will be available for 3D-optimised roughing as well as for turning. Meanwhile, five-axis tangent machining is available for corner filleting, a function that guarantees simple radius programming at surface boundaries.
The highly developed HyperMill simulation functions will make a special experience possible at Open Mind‘s AMB stand; visitors will be able to delve into the machining area through a 3D machine simulation on the stand‘s virtual reality station. Those visiting the stand will be able to view the clamps, holders, tools, tool paths and even view simulations from any desired perspective. They will be able to observe complex processes via virtual machining, while hidden processes will be made visible, and it will be easier to detect collision risks.
