Open Mind Technologies USA celebrates 25 years of CAM software

May 10, 2021

The North American subsidiary of Open Mind Technologies AG, Open Mind Technologies USA, headquartered in Needham, Massachusetts, USA, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the hyperMILL® software suite, the company’s CAD/CAM solution.

“We are excited to reach this important milestone,” stated Alan Levine, Managing Director of Open Mind Technologies USA. “We attribute our sustained growth to the strong product provided by our global headquarters, together with our local sales, engineering and service delivery. Our team is dedicated to providing customers with an optimal CAD/CAM experience including outstanding technical consultation and service.”

Open Mind developed what is thought to be the world’s first CAD/CAM system utilising an automatic multi-axis simultaneous machining strategy for mould and die, and also introduced many CAM software techniques – including strategies for conical barrel cutters, auto-indexing, and 5-axis helical drilling. In addition to providing a CAM software solution, the hyperMILL software offers connectivity to CAD systems, feature and macro technology, tool management systems, automation, simulation, probing, and more.

The company aims to continually be at the forefront of key and emerging technologies by providing integration with Additive Manufacturing processes and supporting Industry 4.0 initiatives. hyperMILL has proven successful in a wide range of industries including mould and die, aerospace, automotive, turbomachinery, energy, medical and more.

Volker Nesenhöner, CEO, Open Mind Technologies AG, added, “We congratulate Alan and his entire team in North America. Open Mind continues to expand market share in the United States, Canada and Mexico as the hyperMILL software suite is a superior choice for highly-productive machining.”
