hyperMILL MAXX Machining
Maximum performance when milling:

Maximise your performance when milling! The hyperMILL® MAXX Machining power package comprises three powerful modules for highly efficient roughing, finishing and drilling.

Trochoidal toolpaths ensure fast and reliable high-performance cutting (HPC). Unique strategies for barrel cutters allow for extremely fast finishing. Holes can be drilled, or pockets can be opened, in materials that are difficult to machine in an efficient and tool-friendly manner. These solutions allow time savings of more than 90% while maintaining optimum quality.

Milling and Turning in a Single User Interface with hyperMILL® MILL-TURN Machining

Mill turning centers are designed for efficient all-in-one machining in a single setup. The hyperMILL® MILL-TURN Machining module ensures that the user remains in the same programming environment for both turning and milling. All turning and milling cycles can therefore be freely combined with one another. Stock tracking guarantees that the milling process can begin exactly where turning has ended; as each operation draws on a stock model for which the preceding machining steps have already been taken into account.

With its 3-axis simultaneous turning for roughing and finishing, hyperMILL® takes full advantage of the possibilities offered by mill/turning centers that feature a swivel head on the third axis: The even load on the tool helps to extend the tool life and complex workpiece contours can be generated quickly in a single operation.

Result of the Collaboration
The rollFEED® drive unit from Vandurit makes 3-axis turning operations possible for turning machines that do not have a third axis. Thanks to the close cooperation between CAM and tool manufacturer, the hyperMILL® rollFEED® Turning strategy is perfectly adapted to the three rollFEED® Turning components: inserts, tooling system and drive unit. rollFEED® Turning with CAM support from OPEN MIND is extremely fast and tool-friendly thanks to the rolling of the complete insert contour. The cutting movement is produced by a horizontal swiveling of the B-axis with simultaneous compensation for the X and Z axes. This means that grooves can be machined with a single tool in a single movement. The CAM strategy automatically guides the tool from the first to the second plane level via the cylinder surface. Thanks to the combination of roll and turn movements, even workpieces with large radii can be machined with collision checking, making for full process reliability.

Efficient measurement with hyperMILL®:

Internal process quality control on CNC machines is becoming increasingly important. Manufacturing errors in the machine tool can be detected early on during measurement, so that time-consuming equipping and installation measures can be avoided. In order for hyperMILL® users to be able to carry out measurements on the machine tool even more easily and conveniently, the CAM solution includes various measurement cycles.

In hyperMILL®, the touch probe is as easy to program as a conventional tool type. All of the touch probe’s movements are checked for collisions. The measurement solution that is integrated into hyperMILL® is designed for the entire NC machining process, which includes tool setup, tool measurement during NC machining and component inspection in the original setup after milling.

hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining Simulation Solution

Components are becoming more and more complex, yet turnover times keep getting consistently shorter. As a result, manufacturing companies must optimize the productive time of their machines by minimizing auxiliary processing times and preventing production downtime. The highly efficient NC code-based hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining simulation solution from OPEN MIND enables manufacturers to do just that.

Thanks to added networking and virtual mapping of the actual processes, machining operations can be reliably evaluated, checked, and optimized before running the job. The Center, Optimizer, and CONNECTED Machining modules of the simulation solution help to decisively step up communication between the hyperMILL® CAM suite and the machine tools.

The core solution, the hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining Center, draws on cutting-edge postprocessors from OPEN MIND. It offers a rich selection of simulation and analysis options based on the NC code following the postprocessor run. The optional Optimizer module offers functions such as automatically choosing the best setting from the wide range of possible tool angles for multi-axis processing. The CONNECTED Machining component implements a bi-directional communication path between the machine tool and the CAM workstation, thus allowing for an interactive dialog between the program that is being created and the machine.

This simulation and analysis features deliver considerable benefits to users. Working with a ‘digital twin’ facilitates significant optimizations without reducing the productive machining time. Benefits include optimized workpiece positions and tool angles, checked axis movements, and the reliable prevention of collisions. This results in shorter processing times and improved processing quality and efficiency, as well as greatly increased overall productivity.
