hyperMILL® receives 'Certified Gold Product' award from SolidWorks

OPEN MIND Technologies CAM software product integrated within SolidWorks® and receives highest partner status

(PresseBox) (Wessling, ) The new hyperMILL® V9.7 from OPEN MIND offers CAD integration with SolidWorks®. SolidWorks Corporation, developer of the popular Solidworks CAD product has certified the integration of OPEN MIND's complete solution and has designated hyperMILL® as a 'Certified Gold Product'. This is SolidWorks' highest award based on outstanding integration, quality and interoperability.

To receive the 'Certified Gold Product' award, the partner product must go through a multilevel certification process. The requirements include full integration of the software user interface within SolidWorks® and associative database linking of the geometric data of SolidWorks®. In addition, SolidWorks® reference customers must be able to use the software product effectively. In-house product tests are also conducted at SolidWorks to determine whether its high requirements are fulfilled. OPEN MIND Technologies released hyperMILL® V9.7, including the SolidWorks® integration in October 2007. And now hyperMILL® has successfully completed and passed the certification process.

Integrated process chains for CAD users

"Our CAD-integrated CAM solution hyperMILL® has the advantage of allowing SolidWorks® users to implement integrated process chains on their existing user interface," explains Frank Eckstein, responsible for hyperMILL® in SolidWorks® in the Application Technology division at OPEN MIND. "In our software solution, the CAD and CAM systems both access the same database. A uniform data model is used for the entire process. This helps ensure transparency and accuracy in the production process and prevents errors."
