CNC machine tools manufacturer Okuma welcomed 200 international customers from the aerospace industry to their Aerospace Centre of Excellence (ACE) in Paris this February. The open house included live machining of aerospace components using the latest technologies, such as a newly developed swarf milling function for difficult-to-cut materials.
the developer of CAM/CAD software and postprocessors will be offering a sneak peek at the upcoming release of version 2016.1 of its hyperMILL® CAM solution. A particular highlight of the new version is the finishing strategy from the new hyperMILL® MAXX Machining performance package. ‘Tangent plane machining’ makes it possible to achieve machining time savings of up to 90 per cent. Extended functions for 3D and 5axis machining tasks, new cycles for mill-turning and numerous innovations in hyperCAD®-S round out the range of functions available in the new version.
