Plenty of interest in hyperMILL® in Bangalore
IMTEX metalworking trade fair a success for OPEN MIND
Visitors to the booth were particularly impressed by the fact that the hyperCAD®-S suite contains a CAD component tailored to the special requirements of CAD users. The new solids module enables exceptionally efficient volume modelling. Users can now make changes to CAD models with direct modelling, which makes it possible to directly modify the geometry in a quick and flexible manner.
Those who need to remove large amounts of material are always looking for ways to speed up machining. As a result, it is no surprise that the new functions in hyperMAXX®, the high-performance cutting (HPC) module for hyperMILL®, received a great deal of attention in Bangalore. New functions include plunging the milling tool into the material at pre-drilled holes, meaning it is no longer necessary to ramp in the milling tool at the start of machining. The greatest advantage of this method is that it protects tools, particularly when it comes to materials that are difficult to cut. The machining process is also checked for collisions. Furthermore, it is now possible to select a zigzag mode in hyperMAXX®. This mode is particularly suited to machining large workpieces, as it prevents time-consuming redundant movements, thereby significantly shortening machining times.
