TNC and Virtual Machining with OPEN MIND

Meeting the needs of the evolving digital manufacturing initiative, OPEN MIND Technologies has recently partnered with HEIDENHAIN TNC controls to provide exclusive first use of their new NC code-based simulation solution hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining. The CONNECTED Machining module allows networked HEIDENHAIN TNC controls to be run from remote locations, a key component for digital production systems. The new simulation solution is available with the hyperMILL® 2018.1 release.

Seamlessly connecting the virtual and real worlds

Wessling (Germany), 19 September 2017 – True to EMO 2017’s theme ‘Networked systems for intelligent production’, CAM/CAD manufacturer OPEN MIND is debuting hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining, a key component for implementing digital production systems. The simulation solution creates a perfect virtual rendering of reality in the machine based on NC data. Built with Industry 4.0 in mind, the tool generates a bi-directional communication link between the machine control and the hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining Center, thus delivering a new level of process control and optimisation.
