Open Mind Technologies’ HyperMill CAM software was developed with Industry 4.0 in mind. HyperMill Virtual Machining enables constant real-time bidirectional communication between the machine tool controller and remote simulation.

Connected Machining, a module of HyperMill Virtual Machining, uses the NC code after postprocessing to enable real-time synchronization and simulation between the machine and HyperMill for optimal data exchange between programming and machining processes. Based on processing results, the HyperMill Virtual Machining NC Optimizer automatically selects tool paths that consider limited machine axes or consider potential interference with an asymmetric machine head.

The HyperMill Maxx Machining High-Performance Package includes Perfect Pocketing technology said to ensure efficient pocket processing using high-feed milling cutters. An algorithm identifies the largest pocket for roughing and automatically generates linear tool paths accordingly.

The new five-axis prismatic fillet finishing function in HyperMill Maxx Machining enables the geometry and automatic inclination of barrel cutters to be applied similarly to high feed cutters, using a plunging and pulling movement at extremely high feed rates.

  • Programming A Robot The Way You Program A CNC Machine Tool

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.

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

    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.
