Open Mind Technologies AG, headquartered in Wessling, Germany, a developer of CAD/CAM software solutions, has released hyperMILL® 2020.1, an updated version of its CAD/CAM software suite which it introduced in December 2019. In addition to 3D and 5-axis machining enhancements for complex part manufacture, the new version is said to increase ease-of-use and overall programming performance, as well as offering key new automation and Additive Manufacturing strategies.

The Additive Manufacturing process in hyperMILL CAM software is said to provide efficient hybrid processing with simultaneous Additive Manufacturing and subtractive machining in one machine tool. The technology offers flexible strategies for additive material applications, including filling strategies for both planes and free-form shapes, and in 2D and 3D sections. Applications also include hybrid machining to fix damaged parts and additive machining of an existing component.

“The new version of hyperMILL® encompasses a wide range of user-friendly enhancements and important new machining strategies, further advancing the capabilities for accurate, efficient 3D and 5-Axis machining,” stated Alan Levine, Managing Director of Open Mind Technologies USA, Inc. “We are also very pleased to reinforce our commitment to Additive Manufacturing and automation in hyperMILL®  2020.1.”
