World-leading Software Technologies for Digital Manufacturing
The well-known CAM solution hyperMILL is an extremely dynamic programming system with 2D, 3D, HSC and 5axis modules that are simple and easy to use. Thanks to its flexible production strategies and the forward-looking feature technology, it is ideal for the tool and mould making industries. hyperMILL boasts a fully developed feature technology. The innovative 5axis cycles offer an alternative to conventional production strategies and significantly reduce production times. The integration of the CAM system with the CAD interface offers frequent advantages. Postprocessors optimally transfer the performance and quality of the CAM program to the controller and the machine.
CAM Software Incorporates CAD Component
Open Mind’s hyperMill 2013.2 release includes updates to hyperCAD-S, a CAD component designed to address the requirements of NC programmers, particularly for tool and moldmaking.
Roughing Module Offers 2D Cutting Optimization
Open Mind’s hyperMaxx roughing module for hyperMill, initially designed for 3D arbitrary stock-contour machining and five-axis shape-offset roughing, now offers its high-performance cutting optimization strategy for 2D pocket milling.
Program Integrates CAD and CAM
Open Mind Technologies’ hyperMill 2012 for SolidWorks enables integration of continuous processes from the drawing to the machine.
Software Optimizes Large- and Small-Part Roughing
The hyperMaxx optional roughing strategy from Open Mind is fully integrated with hyperMill to optimize milling paths, maximize material removal and reduce machining times.
Machining Strategy for Five-Axis Shape Offset Machining
Five-axis contour offset roughing and finishing has been added to Open Mind’s hyperMill software.
Open Mind Renews Agreement with MachineWorks
Open Mind Technologies (Wessling, Germany), developer of the hyperMill CAD/CAM system, has renewed its agreement with MachineWorks (Sheffield, U.K.) for the use of the latter company’s simulation and verification algorithms.
Five-Axis Programming and Simulation
Open Mind Technologies’ hyperMILL 2011 includes the hyperMAXX high-performance roughing module, which is designed to save time during roughing operations.
CAM Software Version Emphasizes Automation Capabilities
The hyperMILL 2010.1 CAM software edition is the company’s first package designed with 64-bit computing in mind. This version also includes continued emphasis on providing automation capabilities allowing the ability to store proven machining procedures, reuse corporate knowledge, add logic, make powerful programming macros and even drive hyperMILL from external applications using an API interface, the company says.
HyperMill from Open Mind Technologies features five-axis technology including automated cutter orientation techniques, collision detection and collision avoidance methods.
Software Update Features CAD Integration
HyperMill 2009. 2 from Open Mind now includes a CAD integration for Autodesk Inventor 2010, which has been certified by Autodesk.
CAM Software For Five-Axis Applications
HyperMill 2009. 1 provides solutions for 2. 5D to 3D to five-axis applications.
Free Seminar Explores New Machining Strategies
To help manufacturers succeed in a difficult economy, a complimentary one-day seminar will showcase new ways of integrating the latest machining products and techniques to improve productivity and product quality while reducing costs. Jointly hosted by cutting tool manufacturer Emuge, machine tool builder Hermle Machine, software developer Open Mind and metrology provider M&H Probing Systems, the event is scheduled for June 9 at Emuge’s Technology Center in West Boylston, Massachussetts. Technical representatives from each company will answer questions about products, technology and processes and how they interact to produce predictable and more efficient manufacturing cycles.
Specialized CAM Software For Dental Applications
HyperDent CAM software is specialized for the preparation and production of dental restorative components. The software has a streamlined user interface to guide technicians through preparing machining instructions for copings, crowns and bridges. The process can be applied in titanium, soft zirconium oxide and hardened zirconium oxide.
CAM System Simplifies Tire Mold Programming
PROBLEM: Segmented tire molds required complex, time-consuming programming SOLUTION: HyperMill CAD software from Open Mind RESULTS: Improved delivery time, part quality Chris Sipe, owner of Northeast Tire Molds in Akron, Ohio, likens machining tire molds to evolutionary theory—while some firms go out on a
Shoe Manufacturer Improves Time To Market With CAM Software
Speed is one of the selling points athletic shoe manufacturers use to market their products: Buy their shoes and you'll run faster. But speed is not just a factor in selling shoes; it has become an essential in their manufacture as well.
NC Product Shootout Yields Rewards For Automotive Mold Supplier
Tycos Tool and Die (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) supplies automotive fascia molds to several major automotive manufacturers, including the Big Three: DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motor Co. and General Motors. A fascia mold contains complex geometry, where details and precision are key. Additionally, machining one 22,000-pound mold can take up to ten days of detailed work, and a small error can scrap a $500,000 mold. Tycos used various NC programming solutions at each of its 10 different machining centers, with most programming taking place on the shop floor.
Programming For High Speed Machining
You'll have to change your NC programming strategy for high speed machining. Here are some quick tips, and some features to look for in your CAM system.
