Advanced CAD/CAM Software Suite

hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining Optimizer enables individual part programs to be linked with smooth, safe connections.

hyperMILL ADDITIVE Manufacturing offers flexible strategies for additive material applications.

OPEN MIND Technologies will be highlighting the advanced capabilities of its latest hyperMILL CAD/CAM software suite at IMTS booth 133351.

Developed with Industry 4.0 in mind, OPEN MIND will be featuring hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining that provides post-processing and G-code simulation, including a VIRTUAL Machining Optimizer that offers innovative solutions to improve toolpaths that are traditionally calculated in the CAM engine. The Optimizer also incorporates knowledge of the part model, tooling, the toolpath calculation and collision check engine and the machine tool model with its physical constraints.

New, improved linking logic in hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining Optimizer for 5-axis table-table machines will be highlighted. The VIRTUAL Machining Optimizer module links individual part programs with smooth and safe connections. An "Optimized Table-Table Logic" option automatically calculates smooth connections between a retract move and subsequent insert, including optimization of clearance planes.

Attendees can also see a new VIRTUAL Machining capability for additive manufacturing processes, where machines often have limited axis ranges. The hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining Optimizer can be used during NC code generation to simulate and optimize additive tool paths.

The ADDITIVE Manufacturing process in hyperMILL CAM software supports 3D printing/and subtractive machining on one machine tool. hyperMILL ADDITIVE Manufacturing technology offers flexible strategies for additive material applications, including filling strategies for both planes and free-form shapes, and in 2D and 3D sections. Applications also include hybrid machining to fix damaged parts and additive machining of an existing component.

A new hyperMILL Automation Center allows users to automate the job list creation processes in hyperCAD-S, serving as both a development and run-time environment. New features also include the ability to select and position the clamping device, as well as define a uniform process for all programmers.

Also to be highlighted at IMTS is a new break-edge function for contour milling, combined pocket milling together with a finish path allowing cutter compensation, and increased efficiency for 3D plane machining. The automated 3D plane machining strategy improves machining quality by searching for suitable, high performance path layouts according to parameters, including when adaptive pockets are present. New extensions to the hyperMILL MILL-TURN capability that enable more streamlined programming, simulation processing and management for machines with main and counter spindle configurations will also be demonstrated.

IMTS attendees can also get a sneak preview of the new version of hyperMILL 2023.1 that will include more efficient roughing toolpath layout capabilities, the next level of surface finish improvements from high precision surface mode, enhancements to hyperMILL Turning Solutions and additional improvements to the VIRTUAL Machining environment.
