Open Mind’s HyperMill CAM software is designed for 2.5D, 3D, five-axis, HSC/HPC and mill-turning processes as well as special applications and automation. The software is embedded with multi-blade and single-blade turbomachinery solutions for programming the milling, drilling and turning processes required. 


  • The Costs and Benefits of Horizontal Machining

    The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.

  • Interpolating Curves

    The ability to import complex curves into CNCs promises to let shops finally get beyond old limitations imposed by contouring with linear interpolation. Faster and smoother cutting will be the result.

  • A Closer Look At Look-Ahead

    This CNC capability is helping make machine tools move far faster, and more accurately, than ever before. Here's how it works.
