Leading developer of CAM solutions for machine and controller-independent programming Open Mind Technologies will present its latest version of Hypermill CAD/CAM software suite and offer virtual reality simulations to visitors at its company booth at AMB.

Open Mind Technologies says the focus is on the Hypermill Maxx Machining performance package that provides efficient machining strategies, which is said to fully utilise the options of each machine tool. Show visitors at the booth will experience virtual reality simulations of exactly what happens at the workbench.

Maxx Machining incorporates innovative methods for roughing, finishing and drilling. Furthermore, the software can develop a cutting tool in a 5-axis tangent plane machining strategy. The increasingly popular conical barrel cutter has a large radii that enables correspondingly wide distances between tool paths. The software uses a 5-axis trochoidal roughing strategy that is a unique machining task for quickly milling curved surfaces in a tool-friendly way as well, the company explains.

Sneak previews of pending expansions to the performance package will also be showcased at AMB. An example is Hypermill Maxx Machining will be available for 3D-optimised roughing and turning in future. Currently, 5-axis tangent machining is available for corner filleting. This function, Open Mind claims, guarantees simple radius programming at surface boundaries.

Visitors will get to enjoy Hypermill’s simulation functions through a 3D machine simulation on the booth’s virtual reality station and view clamps, holders, tools, toolpaths and also view simulations from any perspective. Visitors can also observe complex processes via virtual machining. Hidden processes will be made visible and it will be easier to detect collision risks as well as closely observe the machining of deep cavities with precision.
