OPEN MIND Technologies has recently partnered with HEIDENHAIN TNC controls to provide exclusive first use of their new NC code-based simulation solution hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining. The CONNECTED Machining module allows networked HEIDENHAIN TNC controls to be run from remote locations, a key component for digital production systems. The new simulation solution is available with the hyperMILL 2018.1 release.
HEIDENHAIN’s workshop-oriented TNC 640 mill-turn contouring control is well known for HSC and 5-axis machining on machines with up to 18 axes. Guiding basic to advanced machining, the TNC 640 pairs well with OPEN MIND’s virtual software by connecting with HEIDENHAIN’s DNC software and TNC Remo SDK options.
Three new system modules of the hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining — the Center, Optimizer and CONNECTED Machining — will help to decisively step up communication between the hyperMILL CAM suite and the machine tools. More information is available here.
