hyperMILL “END-TO-END” CAM SOLUTION IS NOW EVEN MORE POWERFUL

More features, optimized strategies, major enhancements: OPEN MIND has upgraded its hyperMILL CAM software for machine- and controller-independent NC programming. These include optimizations for hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining, enhancements to the 5-axis strategies for better results in terms of surface quality, and new options for 2D functionalities.

OPTIMIZED CAM SOFTWARE FOR NC PROGRAMMING

hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining is all about generating, optimizing, and simulating NC code reliably. Through a collection of targeted solutions, Virtual Machining can be used to map all process steps in CNC manufacturing for perfect process control. The modular technology now also supports additive machining programs. The Optimizer module, which delivers powerful optimization algorithms for efficient multi-axis machining, also features the “Optimized Table-Table Logic” function for easy programming and reduced air time between cuts.

The user selects a distance value, and the Optimizer automatically calculates the safety distances using the raw part, component, and clamps selected in the job list. The defined distance is maintained from all components and the movement sequences are automatically optimized. Generating ideal linking movements is even easier as a result. Also, the new feature of direct data transmission in the CONNECTED Machining module provides additional safety during tool input. Instead of the traditional manual input, the parameters are transferred directly from hyperMILL to the controller.

SEAMLESSLY MERGING THE VIRTUAL AND REAL WORLD

The three hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining modules for the seamless merging of the virtual and real worlds form the core of the safe simulation solution:

  • The Center module virtually maps real machining situations for the machine and controller and simulates these based on the NC code.

  • The Optimizer module provides powerful optimization algorithms that ensure efficient multi-axis machining. It also automatically identifies the best inclination for top machining results.

  • The CONNECTED Machining module enables in-depth networking and synchronization with the machine.

INTELLIGENT COMPONENT ALIGNMENT

Another tool for ensuring greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness in machining is the intelligent component alignment in CAM in real-time using hyperMILL BEST FIT. The unaligned component is probed on the machine using 3D probing, and the probing points are sent back to the CAM in the form of a measuring log. hyperMILL BEST FIT then precisely adjusts the NC code to the actual component position. The adapted NC code is subsequently simulated in the virtual machine on the actual clamping setup and optimized automatically.

5-AXIS RADIAL MACHINING

Machining strategies for 2.5D, 3D, HSC, mill-turn, and 5-axis applications offer the ideal solution for any machining situation. In the area of 5-axis radial machining, the new improvements in the CAM software raise the bar in blow mold machining. The new “Flow Equidistant” infeed strategy is the first of its kind that supports the generation of toolpaths with a constant infeed for vertical and challenging surfaces. This means these surfaces can be integrated into the overall machining sequence and processed in a single step. Seamless machining with a very high surface quality is guaranteed.

A dedicated 3-axis machine mode greatly simplifies the use of radial machining on these machines, and the “Smooth Overlap” function can be applied to the general milling area without selecting a boundary curve.

PROGRAMMING TURNING PROCESSES EVEN FASTER AND EASIER

hyperMILL now offers convenient programming for two-sided machining on machines with a main and counter spindle. The machining jobs are simply programmed under the “Main Spindle” and “Counter Spindle” containers, which assigns them to the respective machining side. NC output from the main side, opposite side, and component transfer are realized in one end-to-end NC program with a machine model and a post-processor.
