CAD/CAM software developer Open Mind Technologies is to present a range of methods designed to speed up NC programming — and to make machining more efficient — at this year’s Euromold exhibition.

At the event, which is due to take place on 27–30 November 2012 in Frankfurt, Open Mind and tool manufacturer Emuge-Franken will jointly demonstrate the capabilities of the Hypermill CAM software live on a Hermle C30.

Open Mind, which will be found on Stand M06 in Hall 8.0, will also preview the 2013 version of Hypermill and the newly developed HyperCAD-S software.

The company will provide hourly demonstrations to show how Hypermill can be used to complete both standard and specialised tasks in the mould- and tool-making industry.

Products in detail

Hypermill

  • This supports tapered tools for 3D ISO machining; tapered tools are said to offer better stability, reduce tool vibrations and improve surface finish.
  • For turning operations, Hypermill’s functionality has been extended to include inclined grooving.
  • New infeed strategies have been developed for the 2013 version for the use of ceramics-based tool inserts in mill turning.
  • The upcoming version will support the use of barrel cutters.

HyperCAD-S

  • At Euromold, customers will get a first look at this new CAD software.
  • The CAD platform is specifically designed to address the requirements of CAM users.
