AMB will once again become the hub of European metalworking from 18 to 22 September 2018 and OPEN MIND Technologies will present the latest version of hyperMILL® CAD/CAM suite on Booth 2B20.
The company’s presence at the trade fair will focus on the hyperMILL® MAXX Machining performance package. This brings together highly efficient machining strategies that make the most out of the options for the respective machine tool. Visitors to the OPEN MIND booth at AMB can see exactly how this plans out the workspace, thanks to a virtual reality simulation.
hyperMILL® MAXX Machining incorporates innovative methods for roughing, finishing and drilling. OPEN MIND has also been instrumental in developing the cutting tool for the 5-axis tangent plane machining strategy. The increasingly popular conical barrel cutter has a large radii that enables correspondingly wide distances between tool paths. With regards to roughing strategies, OPEN MIND has also lived up to its reputation as a pioneer in 5-axis machining with the 5-axis trochoidal roughing strategy that is a unique machining task for quickly milling curved surfaces in a way that is very tool-friendly.
OPEN MIND will also provide some sneak peeks at pending expansions to its performance package at AMB. For instance, in the future, hyperMILL® MAXX Machining will be available for 3D-optimised roughing as well as for turning. Meanwhile, 5-axis tangent machining is available for corner filleting. This function guarantees simple radius programming at surface boundaries.
The highly developed hyperMILL® simulation functions will make a special experience possible at OPEN MIND’s AMB booth: Visitors will be able to delve into the machining area through a 3D machine simulation on the booth’s virtual reality station. Visitors will be able to view the clamps, holders, tools, toolpaths and even view simulations from any desired perspective. End users will be able to observe complex processes via virtual machining. Hidden processes will be made visible and it will be easier to detect collision risks. It will even be possible for visitors to closely observe the machining of deep cavities with precision.
