Experts from Emuge and Open Mind will present strategies on how to dramatically reduce cycle times up to 90 percent, and significantly improve surface finishes and tool life by leveraging today’s latest end mills and CAM software to maximize 5-axis machining. Attendees will have short overviews on the latest cutting tools and software innovations, in addition to live custom milling demonstrations on a Hermle C 42 5-axis mill-turn machining center.
A bladed component will be machined and attendees will see first-hand how Emuge’s Circle Segment end mills (also known as conical barrel cutters), together with Open Mind hyperMILL MAXX machining performance package, can offer significant productivity gains when roughing and finishing. A catered lunch will be offered and a Q&A session will conclude the event.
“Our collaboration with Open Mind to develop Circle Segment machining has enabled dramatic productivity improvements for challenging applications, such as in aerospace,” said Bob Hellinger, president of Emuge Corp. “We are pleased to demonstrate this cutting tool and CAM software solution at the event.”
“The lunch-and-learn workshop is an excellent opportunity for attendees to consult with Open Mind and Emuge experts to solve their toughest aerospace milling challenges,” said Alan Levine, managing director of Open Mind Technologies USA.
