Open Mind Technologies AG, developer of CAD/CAM software, has recently partnered with Okuma America Corp., joining the Partners in THINC collaboration.

Open Mind’s focus on CAM has led to technologies designed to make it significantly easier for users to achieve quality, time and cost improvements. Open Mind’s HyperMill software, for example, combines 2.5D, 3D, five-axis milling and turning strategies as well as specialty applications in one interface.

“We are looking forward to collaborating with Okuma and the members of Partners in THINC to bring the most advanced, integrated solutions to manufacturers,” says Alan Levine, managing director for Open Mind Technologies USA Inc. “As we continually strive to keep our CAD/CAM solutions at the forefront of the industry, we welcome the opportunity to work together with other leading companies to enable customers to leverage our technology to meet and exceed their production needs.”

“Open Mind’s globally-recognized, powerful five-axis and multi-function CAD/CAM solutions will strengthen and expand our technology portfolio to address the needs of the expanding additive manufacturing segment and much more,” says Partners in THINC Director Wade Anderson.

Okuma and Open Mind have collaborated on four- and five-axis projects for various Okuma machines including machining centers, multi-function mill-turn machines and hybrid technology, resulting in significant improvements in precision, reliability and quality for increased customer productivity.
