CAD/CAM and MES integration, Open Mind acquires Hummingbird

Posted 17 March 2022
Open Mind acquisizione MES Hummingbird

Open Mind Technologies AG announces the acquisition of a majority stake in MES manufacturer Hummingbird. The two companies have been cooperating since 2020. Now, the hyperMILL CAD/CAM suite manufacturer has acquired 51% of the MES manufacturer, expanding its portfolio of networked, digitized manufacturing solutions.

Even before acquiring Hummingbird, the CAD/CAM system had already been seamlessly integrated into the manufacturing execution system. Open Mind’s investment now enables users to better network, control, automate, and optimize workflows across the manufacturing process. Above and beyond this deep integration, the Hummingbird MES system remains open for connection with other CAM systems.

OPen Mind acquisizione MES Hummingbird Volker Nesenhöner“Forward-looking production critically depends on transparency and the seamless flow of processes and information. We expect demand to increase because requirements will continue to grow, and many companies out there are yet to implement an MES system – explains Volker Nesenhöner, CEO at Open Mind Technologies AG -. Hummingbird is a great fit for us because it was developed specifically for the tool, mold and production machining industries. We know the value of Hummingbird’s technology. The company has been driving innovations that perfectly align with our portfolio and way of thinking. The MES solution expands our product portfolio and at the same time gives us the exciting new ability to shape the entire process. By integrating one of the leading CAM solutions into an agile MES system, we provide users with a crucial tool for the future”.

hyperMILL already seamlessly integrates with the Hummingbird MES. For instance, the data generated in hyperMILL, such as NC programs, clamping plans, stock information and tool lists, are smoothly transferred to Hummingbird at the touch of a button and are immediately available for production. This means that the machine operators and everyone involved in CAM programming, machining preparation and tool management can collaborate via a single software platform, making hyperMILL even more effective in a uniform manufacturing management environment.

Hans-Georg Zwicker, COO at Hummingbird Systems GmbH: “Automation and digitization are the key drivers of future-oriented manufacturing. Both companies offer innovative solutions for this, especially for tool, mold and production machining. Both solutions complement each other perfectly and provide a seamless system for networking, controlling, automating, and optimizing workflows across the entire manufacturing process. Together, we’re taking manufacturing to a new level”.
