drilling component uses a patented technique for fi ve-axis helical drilling for utilizing standard cutters to open bores and pockets with outstanding chip evacuation and reduced machining times.


The hyperMill Maxx Machining


fi nishing module is the centerpiece of this set, providing up to 90% reduction for fi nishing time of many surface types. Finishing times become more important as modern roughing techniques have reduced roughing cut times. Open Mind has developed innovative fi ve-axis tangent plane and tangent machin- ing strategies for the highly effi cient fi nishing of planar, ruled, and general surfaces [curvature dependent] using conical barrel cutters. This module


“Ultimately the goal is to make better parts— better in terms of time, cost and quality. Faster is one component of making better parts, but not the only measure.”


also includes many details to simplify programming and obtain high-quality surfaces with either fi ve-axis or 3+2 indexed machining. Patented innova- tions also allow the conical barrel cutter to reach further into corners and cover the largest potential regions of these components. Surfaces are automatical- ly cleaned with bounding passes, using


the ball end of the conical barrel cutter. ME: How diffi cult is it for a CAM developer to customize components or modules like VoluMill in order to target
