OPEN MIND set for success at Southern Manufacturing 2015

Added to MTDCNC by OPEN MIND on 20 December 2014

At Southern Manufacturing 2015, OPEN MIND Technologies will be giving its new hyperCAD-S platform and new 5-axis machining strategies incorporated into the latest version of hyperMILL 2014.2 their first outing at the Farnborough event. From the 10-12th February 2015, OPEN MIND will be occupying Stand Q115 and providing demonstrations of its leading 5-axis CAM solution and the hyperCAD-S platform, which is the worlds first dedicated CAD for CAM solution.
At the Hampshire event, OPEN MIND will be introducing the new features that have been built into hyperMILL and hyperCAD-S for improving productivity. The new features within  hyperCAD-S  have been created to further improve HSM, 5-axis strategies and power-cutting - all aspects that will maximise stock removal. One feature of note will be OPEN MIND's new Direct Modelling feature that sits within hyperCAD-S. This exciting new innovation provides programmers a 'just do it' approach to design with a modelling strategy that gives end users the power to quickly define and capture a geometry.
In real terms, it allows a programmer/designer to focus on creating a geometry rather than building features, constraints and design intent into models, which is the historical working method with the widely used Parametric Modelling strategy used by alternate CAD vendors. By adopting hyperCAD-S and its Direct Modelling strategy as opposed to the industry accepted Parametric Modelling, end users can eliminate the time-old process of anticipating and defining feature constraints, relations and dependencies to ensure that any design modification will update all related downstream geometries in a predefined way. The benefits of this feature have been realised when creating a Parametric model in 7minutes 31seconds and then re-creating it in 4minutes and 46seconds with hyperCAD-S - a time saving of 36%.
In addition, OPEN MIND engineers at Southern Manufacturing 2015 will be keen to highlight how a new geometric kernel, new database, graphics and user interface with touch support plus a new API for internal and external developers within hyperCAD-S can benefit the end user. On top of presenting the benefits of hyperCAD-S, another prominent aspect will be the utilisation of 5-axis machining strategies within 2D & 3-axis applications to improve productivity on the shop floor. An example of this is the new 5-axis pocket strategy in hyperMILL. Its unique 5X immersion method has been proven to reduce axial forces and loads on the cutting tool and spindle whilst permitting increased step-overs for significant gains in productivity.
