To enable a better optimisation of machining processes, Open Mind introduced a simulation solution at EMO Hannover. Hyper-Mill Virtual Machining is able to create a virtual rendering of reality in the machine based on NC data.

True to EMO's motto of this year, “Connecting systems for intelligent production”, the simulation is a further step in the connection between Open Mind's CAM suite and the machine tools. According to the company, with added networking and virtual mapping of the processes, machining operations can be checked and optimised before running the job. Various analysis functions further enhance safety and bring added transparency by enabling users to check machining situations, Open Mind says.

Besides the core solution Hyper-Mill Virtual Machining Center, there are additional features available, such as the Optimizer, that offers simulation and analysis options. According to Open Mind, it allows for automatically choosing the best setting from a range of possible tool angles for multi-axis processing. The Optimizer is also said to be able to avoid programming errors, thus eliminating the need for making changes to the machining programs at the machine.

When deep mould cavities overwhelm the CAM system

06/28/2017 - Manufacturing mould tools with a weight of 19 tons does not mean that the milling is less complex than with smaller tools. When German-based Pestel Pur Kunststofftechnik reached the limits of their CAM programming in difficult areas, they had to look for an alternative and turned to Solidcam. read...

Via a bi-directional communication path between machine tool and CAM workstation, Connected Machining, allows for a dialogue between the program and the machine. Using this communication, it is possible to get actual machining data in real time
