5-axis Milling

Simplifies one of the most

challenging forms of CNC machining

The trendsetting 5-axis technology in hyperMILL®  can typically yield time savings of more than 25 per cent while lowering tool wear and increasing contour accuracy for more cost-efficient production thanks to continuous machining. Challenging geometries such as high and steep walls require many different tool inclinations in precisely delineated milling areas.

Collision Avoidance

Better be safe than sorry!

The user can decide which axis of rotation should be prioritized in collision avoidance depending on the machine kinematics. If there are collisions, 3D and/or tilted machining is cancelled, the toolpaths with collisions are left out, and then milling is carried out using longer tool lengths and/or modified tool angles. During roughing, the paths can be moved laterally allowing greater machining depths.

The software can predict tool length extension or reduction to optimize this parameter while assuring collision free toolpaths.

Tilt Strategies

HyperMILL® CAM software offers 5-axis milling with a fixed tool angle, automatic indexing and simultaneous machining. The optimal tilt strategy can be selected based on the machine kinematics and geometry.

Cavities

Offering  innovative 5-axis strategies for cavity machining. These strategies allow demanding geometries such as deep cavities and steep walls to be programmed and milled in no time at all.

Surfaces

Achieve the best possible surface quality quickly with simple CAM programming. 5-axis strategies such as Contour Machining, Top Milling, Swarf Cutting and Shape Offset Finishing allow hyperMILL® users to successfully solve a variety of manufacturing tasks.

Impeller Blisk

Impellers and blisks can be programmed without special knowledge using this application. Integrated automated functions in the Multiblade package reduce the number of parameters that need to be entered to a minimum. Proven collision checking guarantees a very high level of process reliability. The use of robust tools allows machining with high infeed parameters and feed rates.

Turbine Blade

The Blade package provides automation features to generate simple machining definitions and incredibly short programming times. This includes the rolling ball function for milling transition radii, the best fit function for automatically setting the optimal start position for the finishing cycle and the automatic lead angle correction function for collision avoidance of the tool face with concave surfaces.

Tube

This 5-axis tube machining package is for intake and exhaust tubes for engines as well as pipe inlets and outlets for pumps and condensers. It is possible to continuously machine strongly undercut geometries in one operation on the basis of the simplest guide curves. Since no special demands are made of the data model, trimming, closing of gaps and surface feedback can all be eradicated. This easy-to-use package allows the user to achieve quick results without time-consuming tests. The proven collision check and avoidance system ensures safe 5-axis milling operations.

Tire molds

Whether using positive or negative molds – the Tire module mills tire molds more economically than ever before. Automated milling strategies and special functions guarantee a simplified and efficient programming process. For example, knifecut and stone ejector functions, as well as other details, are facilitated by a recurring arrangement of identical tire sections that is usually defined with a tire clock. Each area (pitch) must therefore be programmed only once.

The tire utility also copies the tool paths to the relevant positions in the tire. In doing so, the automated segment generation trims the tool paths that go beyond the segment limit. Optimized milling paths considerably reduce the machining time.
