High-performance, complete CAM solution
hyperMILL is the high-performance, complete CAM solution from OPEN MIND. 2.5D, 3D, 5-axis milling and mill-turn tasks can be programmed perfectly and precisely with hyperMILL.
hyperMILL is a modular and flexible CAM solution for 2.5D, 3D and 5-axis milling as well as mill turning and machining operations such as high-speed cutting (HSC) and high-performance cutting (HPC), with everything integrated in a single interface. The special applications for milling impellers, blisks, turbine blades, tubes and tire molds complete the range of functions available in hyperMILL.
Automatically transform any function
Up to now, standard features such as pockets and holes were able to be selected automatically. With the “General Transformation Pattern” function, OPEN MIND now makes it possible to select any reference geometry and search for that same reference in all other models – regardless of its spatial orientation. This creates a general transformation pattern including a frame at each reference feature. This makes it easy to program recurring shapes with a single click. The function is also suitable for multiple setups, for example
5-axis strategy for more uniform surfaces
The “5-axis halfpipe finishing” strategy makes it incredibly convenient to program continuous toolpaths for grooves, tubes, and halfpipes with any cross-section along an arched guide curve. This is a great advantage for users, as previously, this machining operation may have had to be divided into several steps. This strategy opens a wide range of applications, for example, in molds and dies where the tool axis points in the demolding direction.
CAM in dialog
The example of back boring and its collision control based on a digital twin shows how hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining is already playing a role in standard functions. Simulation technology based on real NC and machine data is becoming increasingly more important. OPEN MIND is driving the necessary communication between CAM system and machine controller forward. Currently hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining supports controllers from HEIDENHAIN, SIEMENS, Mazak, FANUC, FIDIA, OKUMA, rödersTEC, D.ELECTRON, HURCO, and Haas. Others are to follow.
CAD, CAM and data
hyperMILL 2023 not only leverages advances in computing power and software engineering to increase performance, but it also streamlines processes. For example, the hyperMILL SIMULATION Center loads faster because it does not include unnecessary data for the calculation at hand. The optimized handling of data also proves to be an improvement in another area. hyperMILL now makes it possible to import individual components from assemblies. Users can now use filters to select individual components when importing assemblies from other design systems’ native data. This reduces loading times for large assemblies and eliminates the need to subsequently delete individual parts that are not required.
