NEEDHAM, MA U.S.A. (June 11, 2021) – OPEN MIND Technologies, a leading developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, announced it will feature its ADDITIVE Manufacturing capability option in hyperMILL® CAM software at
RAPID + TCT Booth E8153 from September 13-15, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. In addition to supporting 3D printing/ additive processes, hyperMILL® together with ADDITIVE Manufacturing provides efficient hybrid processing with simultaneous additive and subtractive processing on one machine. As an early adopter of driving forward the implementation of integrated process chains, OPEN MIND has optimized hyperMILL® ADDITIVE Manufacturing technology to boost the efficiency, precision and process reliability of additive and hybrid manufacturing.
For highly complex 5-axis simultaneous processing, hyperMILL® ADDITIVE Manufacturing enables an array of flexible options for Directed Energy Deposition processes (DED) and Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM). Both laser-based powder nozzle machining heads and WAAM can be controlled using hyperMILL® ADDITIVE Manufacturing for selective material deposition, as well as conveniently programmed and automatically simulated for collision avoidance.
Key additive applications include repair of damaged components, cladding of additional surface skins, or creation of new components from a substrate. This also creates totally new options for combining different materials, such as when high-quality material layers have to be applied to carrier materials.
