Open Mind Technologies will be presenting its Hypermill CAM software for the tyre industry on booth 4050 at Tire Technology Expo 2014 in Cologne, Germany, from 11–13 February 2014.

In the current version of the Hypermill CAM software, the tyre module has been significantly extended. Tyre mould programming has been simplified thanks to intelligent automated functions, while its machining strategies are claimed to speed up mould manufacturing.

The tyre module features a new ‘Tire Browser’, which is completely integrated in Hypermill and allows users to simply and quickly edit and create tyre definitions. Here, all pitch geometries can be clearly managed.

The ‘Tire Clock’ defines a tyre’s design, and has all segments, tracks, pitch sequences, and pitches. Once the pitch geometry has been defined, automated functions support creating and managing the elements and geometries required for programming. 

Plus, Hypermill offers a range of specific five-axis strategies to machine curved surfaces with a consistent offset quickly and simply.

Key features and benefits

  • Tyre mould programming has been simplified thanks to intelligent automated functions.
  • ‘Tire Browser’ allows users to simply and quickly edit and create tyre definitions.
  • The tyre module provides optimal support all the way from defining tyre geometries right through to production of the segment tool.
  • Unnecessary movements can be eliminated by trimming the toolpaths at the segment limits.
  • Automatic segment program generation handles trimming, sorting and linking tool paths — including collision monitoring — for process reliability.
  • It is possible to automatically generate segment surface geometries with trimmed splits.
  • The user can display the suitable geometry for each operation in order to avoid errors, meaning that each pitch only has to be programmed once.
  • The new ‘Multiple Track Support’ function allows a separate pitch sequence to be defined for each track.
