The Grob Group, a manufacturer of universal machining centers, is partnering with Open Mind, a developer of CAM/CAD systems, to offer a two-day technology seminar covering strategies for five-axis machining, including production solutions for aerospace and other industries. The seminar will take place August 1-2, 2017 at Grob’s U.S. headquarters and manufacturing facility in Bluffton, Ohio.

For any shop producing complex parts, cost, time and efficient material removal are among the most important criteria for machining operations that must meet extremely tough quality requirements. During the seminar, experts from both companies will demonstrate ways for companies to make their production facilities more efficient. Presentations will include Industry 4.0 connected machining, as well as the interplay between the latest Grob machining centers and the HyperMill CAM solution.

The live milling demonstrations will show aerospace or other components milled on various five-axis universal machining centers. The G350/G550 for complex components enables overhead (upside-down) machining for immediate and thorough chip removal. 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 to fully utilize the workzone. The G-modules are therefore well suited for five-sided or five-axis simultaneous machining. The NC-programs were created through the HyperMill Maxx Machining performance package, which offers strategies for roughing, finishing and drilling.
