Paris Air Show, the international exhibition for the aerospace industry has seen the presentation of Open Mind's latest version of its Hyper-Mill software solution.

France – CAM manufacturer Open Mind Technologies has presented the latest edition of its Hyper-Mill software solution at the International Paris Air Show. The trade fair, which took place in Le Bourget, France, is the largest meeting point for the aerospace industry. According to the company, Open Mind has demonstrated innovative CAM technologies that allow companies to make their manufacturing processes more efficient and reduce machining times by up to 90 percent, the company says.

Researchers find way to easily connect machines from different manufacturers

05/10/2017 - One of the biggest problems with digitalisation is that it either needs machine manufacturers to open their software systems to other brands, or it needs a connection software that can work with machines regardless of their producers. The latter is attempted by researchers from Germany. read...

With its Hyper-Mill CAM system, Open Mind aims to offer intelligent solutions to meet the challenges arising in the aerospace industry. The Hyper-Mill Maxx Machining performance package in particular, provides users with modules for highly efficient roughing, finishing and drilling operations that can offer fast economic benefits when working under increasing time and cost pressure, Open Mind says.

“The aerospace industry is one of the most technically demanding industries. Manufacturing companies operating in this area face considerable challenges such as high cost pressures, precision, difficult materials, efficient procedures and certifiable processes. Open Mind caters for these parameters by offering reduced machining times of up to 95 percent in machining environments that demand large material removal volumes. The way to achieve this is to fully exploit all the possibilities offered by modern tools and machine tools with the help of CAM methods. And that’s where we come into play,” says Peter Brambs, Principal Engineer of Product Innovation at Open Mind.

Demand strengthens in manufacturing

06/23/2017 - UK - According to CBI's latest survey, manufacturing companies in the UK have reported that both their total and export order books had strengthened to multi-decade highs in June, though output growth slowed. read...

According to Open MInd, Hyper-Mill Maxx Machining roughing strategies make it possible to achieve far higher material removal rates per unit of time. At the same time, there is much less stress on tools and machines. High-performance machining features optimal milling paths, maximum material removal rates and the shortest possible machining times. The strategy for extremely rapid material removal is also available for materials that are difficult to cut (for example, titanium) and can be used for 2D, 3D and 5axis milling tasks. Open Mind has also developed a special method for the efficient finishing of steep and flat surfaces: 5axis tangent plane machining with conical barrel cutters, achieving time savings of 90 per cent, as the company says.
