2.5D Machining: Milling, Drilling

Typical 2.5D drilling and milling tasks can be programmed particularly efficiently using hyperMILL® CAM software.

hyperMILL® 2.5D machining is typically used for plate processing in tool and mould manufacturing. Numerous pockets, plane levels, contours and drill holes present very special challenges here. Intelligent mechanisms, such as the recognition of pocket features, help the CAM user to program significantly faster. 
With its high-performance cutting functions (HPC), hyperMILL® MAXX Machining is able to give an additional boast to performance during 2.5D roughing.

Accelerated 2.5D programming

2D components normally offer great potential for automation. hyperMILL® therefore provides a comprehensive solution that allows programming to be completely automated. All 2.5D strategies can also be applied to multi-axis machining.
