February 8, 2019 – OPEN MIND Technologies AG, a developer of CAD/CAM software solutions, has introduced 2019.1, a new release of its hyperMILL CAD/CAM software suite.

This version has a range of new features and enhancements, including an expanded finishing module in the hyperMILL MAXX Machining Performance Package, process optimizations such as a new thread milling module, a new function for reducing calculation times, tool database flexibility and CAD optimization. 

The new five-axis prismatic fillet finishing function in hyperMILL MAXX machining enables the geometry and automatic inclination of barrel cutters to be applied similar to high-feed cutters, using a plunging and pulling movement at extremely high feed rates. Maximum performance is attainable using conical barrel cutters (also known as arc segment or circle segment end mills). Ball or bull nose end mills can also be efficiently used with this milling strategy.

OPEN MIND has implemented new techniques in hyperMILL 2019.1 for machining directly to the model surface, which the company says has substantially improved surface finishes.

Also new to 2019.1 is the elimination of cycle recalculation requirement to improve processing speed. Recalculation cycles are no longer required when job ID numbers are changed or when fixture positions change.
