OPEN MIND To Feature Advanced CAM Software At Amerimold 2020.

From June 10-11, 2020 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan: OPEN MIND at Booth #610

OPEN MIND Technologies AG, a leading developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, has announced today it will showcase the advanced capabilities of hyperMILL CAM software in Booth #610 at Amerimold from June 10-11, 2020 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.

Attendees can learn how the extensive capabilities of hyperMILL offer significant advantages when using 5-Axis machining for moldmaking. For example, the hyperMILL MAXX Machining Finishing Module, a performance package of the hyperMILL CAM software suite, is the CAM programming source enabling the use of conical barrel cutters (also known as circle segment or arc segment end mills) to reduce cycle times over 90% and is ideal for planar, ruled and curved surfaces often found in complex 5-Axis components. hyperMILL MAXX Machining offers three powerful modules for finishing, roughing and drilling.

OPEN MIND will feature the latest software release hyperMILL 2020.1 which has powerful 3D and 5-Axis Machining enhancements for complex machining applications including mold and die. In addition, it increases ease-of-use and overall programming performance, and includes key new automation and additive manufacturing strategies.

For highly productive rest material machining, hyperMILL 2020.1 offers new Corner Rest Machining strategies for 3D and 5-Axis techniques that provide significant benefits in complex machining applications including mold and die. Enabled by a simple instruction, corners can be machined largely by vertical stroking motions. Then traditional z-level steps can be used to blend with the vertical section and the lower floor area. The top section has an automatic surface extension to enable the production of sharp edges.

The tangent machining capability in hyperMILL offers an excellent strategy for machining surfaces with any degree of continuous curves. Toolpaths are automatically created for efficient single- and multi-surface machining. Intelligent algorithms ensure that the tool always tilts optimally over the contact point of the milling cutter. This results in safe machining of the entire surface and uniform utilization of the cutting radius.
