hyperMILL® pushes modern machining tools to their limits

OPEN MIND at EuroMold 2012

(PresseBox) (Weßling, ) The CAD/CAM software developer OPEN MIND is presenting a range of methods to speed up NC programming and make machining more efficient at this year's EuroMold. OPEN MIND and tool manufacturer EMUGE-FRANKEN will be jointly demonstrating the capabilities of hyperMILL® live on a Hermle C30 between 27 and 30 November 2012 at the trade show in Frankfurt at Stand M06 in Hall 8.0. OPEN MIND will also be offering a sneak peek at hyperMILL® version 2013 and the newly-developed hyperCAD-S® software.

OPEN MIND will offer practical demonstrations on an hourly basis, showing how hyperMILL® can be used effortlessly to complete both standard and specialised tasks at this trade show for the mould and tool making industry. The sample workpiece used for the demonstration mould will be a respirator mask that will be milled on a Hermle C30. The demonstration will showcase the latest hyperMILL® strategies and the features of the EMUGE FRANKEN tools.

Optimal tool use

As of the current 2012 version, hyperMILL® supports tapered tools for 3D ISO machining. Tapered tools offer more stability, reduce tool vibrations and as well as improving surface finish. For turning operations, hyperMILL® functionality has been extended to include inclined grooving. This is why cranked tools can now also be used. OPEN MIND will also be revealing the first new features of hyperMILL® 2013 at EuroMold. The company has developed a number of new infeed strategies for the use of ceramics-based tool inserts in mill turning. Additionally, the upcoming version will support the use of barrel cutters.

CAD for CAM users

OPEN MIND will be offering a first look at the company's very own new CAD solution, hyperCAD-S® at EuroMold. This CAD platform is specifically designed to address the requirements of CAM users.
