hyperMILL signs a cooperative agreement with CFturbo

Integrates into turbo machinery design solution.

Open Mind Technologies AG has now announced a cooperative agreement with CFturbo to provide a complete design-to-manufacture workflow process to produce turbo machines such as pumps, compressors, turbines, fans and blowers. CFturbo is acknowledged as an industry leader in the turbo machinery sector with its design software that takes businesses from conceptual design through to complete 3D model. The modern, powerful software platform for interactive design enables the end-user to start from scratch or re-design existing geometries like impellers, stators and volutes. Now, the collaboration with Open Mind Technologies will enable turbo machinery designers to take their design concept beyond the 3D model and through to complete CAM model for production.

CFturbo incorporates functions and menu options to convert its design output files into widely recognised design platforms such as AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Siemens NX, Catia and Inventor. With the collaborative agreement, CFturbo users can now export design files into the hyperMILL® platform to generate CAM files for streamlined design to production workflows.

Multi-blade machining

The collaboration will accelerate the product development and production processes for designer and manufacturers, while maintaining a high level of accuracy and consistency. The CFturbo software platform provides an integrated and streamlined approach to turbo machinery design that enables users to rapidly proceed from conceptual design through meshing and 3D CAD platforms and onward to CFD and FEA simulation, complete CAE workflows, analysis and testing and validation. The cooperation with Open Mind now allows CFturbo users to go beyond simulation, analysis and test validation through to complete CAM NC programming for production purposes.
