OPEN MIND Technologies AG draws a positive conclusion from this year’s EMO MILANO metalworking trade fair. In addition to the numerous lively discussions taking place at the OPEN MIND booth that often revolved around very specific manufacturing challenges, the main focus of the company’s presence at the trade fair was on introducing its upcoming hyperMILL MAXX Machining performance package. The solution features three special optional modules for highly efficient rouging, finishing and drilling. These strategies will be available in the new hyperMILL 2016.1 release.
OPEN MIND’s presentation at the trade fair devoted special attention to a specific finishing strategy from the new hyperMILL MAXX Machining performance package: ‘Tangent plane machining’ makes it possible to achieve machining time savings of up to 90 per cent. Using conical barrel tools allows for larger path distances for the same theoretical scallop height. The OPEN MIND machining strategy takes advantage of the extremely large radius of the barrel shape, which allows for optimal inclination to the faces. This makes it possible to achieve considerably shorter machining times and a high level of surface quality.
