The Grob Group and Open Mind are offering a free, two-day technology seminar August 1-2, 2017. The manufacturer of universal machining centers will partner with the developer of CAM/CAD systems to present production solutions for aerospace and other industries at Grob’s U.S. headquarters and manufacturing facility in Bluffton, Ohio.

Cost, time and efficient material removal are among the most important criteria for any shop producing complex parts that have to meet tough quality requirements. During the two-day seminar, experts from Grob and Open Mind will demonstrate ways for companies to make their production facilities more efficient. In technical presentations alternating with live milling demonstrations, participants will learn specific manufacturing strategies to boost productivity. Presentations will cover Industry 4.0/connected machining, as well as the interplay between the latest Grob machining centers and HyperMill CAM software.

The live milling demonstrations will show aerospace or other components milled on various Grob five-axis universal machining centers. For complex components, the G350/G550 enables overhead (upside-down) machining for immediate and thorough chip removal. It also features a spindle which fully retracts from the machining area during part positioning or tool changes to eliminate any chance of collision and to fully utilize the work zone.

The NC-programs to be demonstrated are programmed using Open Mind’s HyperMill Maxx Machining performance package. The package offers high-power strategies for roughing, finishing and drilling, including five-axis tangential plane finishing for conical barrel cutters, a process that benefits the machining of complex aerospace parts.
