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.

hyperMILL®: CAM meets Aerospace

The aerospace industry is one of the most technically challenging industries in the world. There are growing pressures to look at new manufacturing methods to reduce production times and increase efficiency. One of the determining factors in the production chain is the choice of the right CAM solution. Reduced machining times with high material removal rates of up to 95 per cent require state-of-the-art CAM solutions. OPEN MIND, a leading developer of CAM/CAD-Software, offers with its CAM system hyperMILL® intelligent solutions to meet the challenges rising in the aerospace industry.

How to create the perfect digital twin

As well as achieving in-machining efficiencies through advanced tooling technologies and strategies, there are many gains to be had earlier in the process, at the design and planning stage. Here, the digitalisation of previously manual processes such as tooling item selection and tool assembly creation can help to significantly increase efficiency and machining security. Cutting tool data can in fact be gathered more accurately and used to create precise digital twin representations – a functionality that has become fundamental in the modern workflow to prevent errors at the machining stage. Today, such processes can be fully integrated with the user’s CAM software, and can be completed with a few simple clicks as part of an easy-to-use menu-driven process.
