OPEN MIND Technologies Announces Virtual Workshops on Innovative Techniques for Machining Challenging Aero Components

OPEN MIND Technologies, a developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, has announced they will be participating in two complimentary virtual workshops this summer featuring innovative hyperMILL CAM software, tooling and machining technologies to manufacture bladed aerospace components comprised of a Titanium 6AL-4V alloy. Manufacturers involved with machining hard materials and superalloys, as well as those making engine parts and more will significantly benefit from the Virtual Workshops.


On July 30 from 2 – 3 PM EDT, OPEN MIND and co-hosts GROB Systems and Seco Tools will hold a virtual workshop to present techniques and technology for the manufacture of turbine blades, such as those found in aero-engines and in power generation. A live machining demonstration will show hyperMILL CAM software and Seco conical barrel cutters producing a blade on a GROB G350 Universal 5-axis Machining Center in a single setup. The conical barrel cutters achieve high performance machining and high-quality surface finish. Using strategies from hyperMILL®, the ball end ground into the same conical barrel cutters will perform various blending operations and assure smooth overall part surfaces.

On August 27 from 2 – 3 PM EDT, OPEN MIND together with co-hosts GROB Systems and YG-1 Tool Company will host a virtual workshop to highlight the innovative techniques and technology to produce critical features on aero-engine blisk components. The presentation will feature initial blank preparation using 3-axis simultaneous turning, high performance roughing to remove material between blades and a hyperMILL MAXX Machining finishing strategy with conical barrel cutters to achieve a high surface finish. During a live machining demonstration, key aspects of blisk part manufacture will be shown. A question and answer session will conclude the Virtual Workshop.
