SPECIFIC USE OF hyperMILL

IN MEDICAL INDUSTRY

“Aesculap selected hyperMILL in 2008 with an objective to increase productivity. The implementation with hyperMILL CAM software aimed to produce safe NC programs on the machines faster. Machining times had to be reduced without loss of quality. Thanks to hyperMILL, we were able to quickly achieve these goals.”

Frank Fedtke, Technology Development, Aesculap AG

KNEE REPLACEMENTS

Every component of a knee prosthesis has different manufacturing challenges: A variety of geometries of the femoral and tibial component. Material that is difficult to machine, such as cobalt-chromium in the femoral part and UHMWPE in inlays. With hyperMILL you are prepared for all challenges of knee implant milling.

FEMORAL COMPONENT

hyperMILL’s 3D and 5-axis strategies are perfect for complex geometries. You can achieve huge time savings with barrel cutters or use special tools with the “Free Tip Geometry” function. Thanks to the digital twin of the virtual machine, you can already see in the simulation what will happen on the machine.

INLAY

Benefit from efficient toolpaths for the machining of knee implant inlays. Ultra-high-molecular weight-polyethylene is not easy to machine. A powerful tool database and interfaces to tool catalogs guarantee reliable processes and excellent surfaces when machining engineered plastics.

HIP REPLACEMENTS

Producing hip shafts in all variants require know-how in many areas. Prototypes made from a solid block or forging dies for production can be machined comfortably, in the highest quality.

HIP STEM

Do you want to machine prototypes as well as production components? With hyperMILL you can comfortably generate perfect toolpaths for your machine tool. Thanks to proven strategies and technology parameters, you can process titanium alloys safely and reliably. The use of special and form tools is also possible without any problems.

FORGING DIE

Toolmaking for medical parts? Manufacture forging dies for hip shafts in superior quality. Thanks to excellent, transition-free surfaces, you minimize secondary operations. Do you manufacture a variety of part families? CAM automation reduces programming times significantly.

BONE PLATES

Successfully milling bone plates depends on many factors. Machining them in just one setup requires a CAM system with reliable 5-axis capabilities. hyperMILL offers reliable toolpaths for demanding titanium materials.

MILLING WITH hyperMILL 5-AXES STRATEGIES

Milling bone plates reliably, in just one setup – no problem with 5-axis strategies. Achieve the best surface finishes without transitions and reduce secondary operations to a minimum. You can also program conical threads with form tools quickly and easily with hyperMILL.

CLEAR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE!

Do you manufacture many bone plate variants in different sizes? Program them in record time with hyperMILL’s unique automation technology.

SPINAL IMPLANTS

Implants for spines are extremely diverse. Cervical plates, spinal cages, or stabilization systems challenge manufacturers for various reasons. Here, too, it is important to get to the NC code quickly and comfortably.

SPINAL CAGES

Do you mill spinal implants from a solid plastic block? PEEK machining is a no-brainer thanks to proven roughing and finishing strategies. Toolpaths from hyperMILL ensure machining results of the highest quality.

CERVICAL PLATES

Milling cervical plates from a titanium bar require suitable strategies and cutting parameters. With hyperMILL and its powerful tool database, you can program and mill your parts conveniently and efficiently. Thanks to reliable 5-axis technology, even in just one setup.

As you can see, hyperMILL CAM software of OPEN MIND Technologies also works great in the medicine industry, proving how widely it can be used. Advanced solutions would lower your costs and shorter production times for a wide variety of parts as well.
