OPEN MIND Technologies

More efficient use of modern milling machines, significantly reduced programming times and a longer tool life for cutting tools – our hyperMILL® CAD/CAM software and product concept are perfectly designed to meet these requirements.

5-axis NC programs

Although 5-axis milling is one of the most challenging forms of CNC machining, OPEN MIND’s hyperMILL® CAM software makes it possible for programmers to generate 5-axis NC programs quickly and easily, with short machining times and high quality surface finish.

5-axis programming does not need to be time-consuming or unreliable. OPEN MIND’s innovative 5-axis technology stands out clearly from other solutions due to its simple and user-friendly programming, reliable algorithms for collision detection and intelligent collision avoidance.

Trend-setting 5-axis strategies

The trendsetting 5-axis technology in hyperMILL® can typically yield time savings of more than 25 per cent while lowering tool wear and increasing contour accuracy for more cost-efficient production thanks to continuous machining. Challenging geometries such as high and steep walls require many different tool inclinations in precisely delineated milling areas.

5-axis milling is standard

5-axis simultaneous machining with hyperMILL® 5AXIS is based on what users are already familiar with: milling with a tilted tool. Yet the machining process is now quicker, the surface results are better and programming is much less complicated. Thanks to easy programming with automatic collision checking and avoidance, this technology can also be used as a solution for many standard milling jobs.

hyperCAD®-S

hyperCAD®-S is the CAD software from the CAM specialist OPEN MIND, and is therefore fully designed to meet the requirements of CAM programmers. It is pure ‘CAD for CAM’.

The primary objective of hyperCAD®-S is to greatly accelerate CAD-oriented tasks for NC programmers. Points, curves, facessolids or polygon meshes can be easily selected. Elements can be quickly added, deleted, modified, shown or hidden. All functions are specifically tailored to the tasks of NC programmers.

 

A new standard among CAD systems

OPEN MIND's CAD subsidiary created the program code for hyperCAD®-S from scratch. The software architecture and kernel, graphics, databases, user interface and API are modern and based on 64-bit-technology. The result: decisive advantages for hardware and software such as exploiting the capabilities of 64-bit, multi-core CPUs and GPUs of the latest graphics cards.

HyperMILL MAXX Machining

Speed is more crucial than ever these days. It’s for this reason that OPEN MIND developed a high-performance solution for roughing, finishing and drilling – the hyperMILL® MAXX Machining performance package.

HPC | High-Performance-Cutting Software

The hyperMILL® MAXX Machining performance package comprises three separate modules for highly efficient roughing, finishing and drilling. This unique approach makes it possible to reduce machining times and achieve high standards of quality at the same time.

Trochoidal tool paths ensure extremely fast material removal. Innovative strategies for barrel cutters allow for finishing in record time. Milling tools tilted in cutting mode can open holes quickly and easily, even in materials that are difficult to machine and without the need for a predrilled hole.
