VIRTUAL MACHINING TECHNOLOGY OF HYPERMILL CAM SOFTWARE

The virtual world is also present in CAM programming. The Virtual Machining module of hyperMILL CAM software was developed by OPEN MIND Technologies AG to provide the highest control and optimization of machining processes. It is a sophisticated and effective solution that brings many benefits.

PERFECT SYNTHESIS OF THE VIRTUAL AND REAL WORLDS

The hyperMILL Virtual Machining Center represents the core of the new solution. This offers all the classic options for simulation, embedded in a highly intuitive user interface. Here, machine simulation is carried out with a defined machine model, taking into account the workpiece and tool as well as the tool holder, fixtures, and clamps. Axes can be moved and simulated manually, and possible collisions and limit switch traversals are detected automatically.

INCREASED SAFETY IN SIMULATIONS

Actual machining situations, that is, the machine including controller and PLC, are mapped virtually and simulated based on the NC code in the hyperMILL VM Center. All processes are transparent to the user and can be analyzed in detail. Real-world machine collisions, causing costly machine damage, production downtime, and thereby critical delays, are avoided.

MORE THAN JUST SIMULATION

Powerful optimization algorithms ensure efficient multi-axis machining design. The hyperMILL VM Optimizer automatically finds the best tilt angle, thereby ensuring seamless machining. In addition, hyperMILL Connected Machining enables in-depth networking and synchronization with the machine.

GREATER EFFICIENCY THANKS TO A NEW GENERATION OF POSTPROCESSORS

Postprocessor technology has also been significantly further developed with the hyperMILL VM simulation solution and supplemented with many innovative functionalities. For instance, bidirectional linking is now possible between the NC program and the machining information from hyperMILL. By means of this connection, the respective hyperMILL job can be assigned to the NC Code.
