At the Euromold trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany, Open Mind Technologies will be presenting its CAD/CAM software — specifically its machining strategies in the Hypermill 2013 CAM software and the Hypermaxx cutting module.

On show will be Hypermill, which has a ‘rib milling’ strategy that is suitable for toolmakers who need to mill deep, narrow cavities for ribs in their moulds, as the cycle automatically detects grooves that have to be milled.

Hypermill 2013 also has an extension for five-axis contour offset finishing: it can use the large effective radius of the barrel cutter with a point milling contact style. This allows increased step-over distances between passes for free-form surfaces.

Visitors to the stand will also be able to see Hypermaxx, the roughing module fully integrated into Hypermill that combines optimal milling paths, maximum material removal and the shortest possible machining times, as well as ensuring that milling always takes place at the fastest possible feed rate.

Open Mind Technologies will be on Stand 8.0 L07 from 3–6 December 2013.
