NEEDHAM, MA U.S.A. (July 6, 2020) – OPEN MIND Technologies, a leading developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, has announced they will be participating in two complimentary virtual workshops this summer featuring innovative hyperMILL® CAM software, tooling and machining technologies to manufacture bladed aerospace components comprised of a Titanium 6AL-4V alloy. Manufacturers involved with machining hard materials and superalloys, as well as those making engine parts and more will significantly benefit from the Virtual Workshops.
On July 30th from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT, OPEN MIND and co-hosts GROB Systems and Seco Tools will hold a Virtual Workshop to present techniques and technology for the manufacture of turbine blades, such as those found in aero-engines and in power generation. A live machining demonstration will show hyperMILL® CAM software and Seco conical barrel cutters producing a blade on a GROB G350 Universal 5-axis Machining Center in a single setup. The conical barrel cutters achieve high performance machining and high-quality surface finish. Using strategies from hyperMILL®, the ball end ground into the same conical barrel cutters will perform various blending operations and assure smooth overall part surfaces.

On August 27th from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT, OPEN MIND together with co-hosts GROB Systems and YG-1 Tool Company will hold a Virtual Workshop to highlight the innovative techniques and technology to produce critical features on aero-engine blisk components. The presentation will feature initial blank preparation using 3-axis simultaneous turning, high performance roughing to remove material between blades and a hyperMILL® MAXX Machining finishing strategy with conical barrel cutters to achieve a high surface finish. During a live machining demonstration, key aspects of blisk part manufacture will be shown. A question and answer session will conclude the Virtual Workshop.
