OPEN MIND/ hyperMILL Announce Joint 5-Axis Machining Technology Seminar with GROB Systems
During the seminar, experts from GROB Systems and OPEN MIND will demonstrate ways for manufacturers to make their production facility more efficient.
April 26, 2019
OPEN MIND Technologies USA has announced a joint 5-Axis Machining Technology Seminar with GROB Systems, a manufacturer of universal machining centers. On June 4, 2019 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., OPEN MIND and GROB Systems will offer a complimentary 5-Axis Technology Seminar in Auburn, WA, at Machine Tools Northwest. Production solutions for aerospace and other industries will be presented.
During the seminar, experts from GROB Systems and OPEN MIND will demonstrate ways for manufacturers to make their production facility more efficient. Technical presentations will alternate with live milling demonstrations, and participants will learn specific manufacturing strategies to boost productivity. Presentations will include Industry 4.0.
Live milling demonstrations will show aerospace, including structural and turbomachinery components, and other parts milled on a GROB G350 5-axis universal machining center. The NC programs will be created using the hyperMILL MAXX Machining performance package, offering strategies for roughing, finishing and drilling. OPEN MIND developed a 5-axis tangent plane finishing program for conical barrel cutters specifically for the finishing of hard-to-reach planes. The technology has been expanded to other surface types.
The G350 and the entire Grob universal machine range offers a solution for complex components, because it enables overhead (upside-down) machining for immediate and thorough chip removal, the company reports. It also features a spindle that fully retracts from the machining area during part positioning or tool changes to eliminate any chance of collision and fully use the work zone.
