Givat Shmuel, Israel – April 17 – Visitors to the upcoming MoldMaking Expo tradeshow (April 23 – 24, 2008, Novi, Michigan) will be able to see Cimatron’s (NASDAQ: CIMT) suite of integrated CAD/CAM solutions that are proven to help mold makers deliver higher quality tools at lower costs and shorter cycle times.
Cimatron’s CAD/CAM solutions address the entire process—from quoting through design, engineering changes, NC, and EDM programming to delivery. On display at the show will be Cimatron’s solution for concurrent design and manufacturing, as well as exciting CAD/CAM enhancements recently released by Cimatron.
Cimatron’s concurrent engineering capabilities improve productivity and collaboration and significantly compress product delivery times.
Concurrent design capabilities are built into Cimatron’s CAD applications, enabling multiple users to simultaneously work on the same assembly and shortening the design cycle. Starting with the new release of CimatronE version 8.5, these concurrent design capabilities are available throughout the entire CAD product line.
Cimatron’s support for concurrent engineering extends beyond the design phase. The integrated end-to-end design-to-manufacturing solution uses a single database that provides complete associatively and enables multiple steps of the design and manufacturing process to be performed in parallel.
These concurrent engineering capabilities and more will be demonstrated at Cimatron’s booth #323 at the 2008 MoldMaking Expo.
“Looking at design and manufacturing as an integrated process can help mold makers accelerate delivery times and improve product quality,” said Bill Gibbs, CEO and President, Cimatron Technologies, Inc. “We are excited to share with MoldMaking Expo attendees these solutions for success.”
Also on display at the show will be new capabilities recently released in CimatronE version 8.5. These include modified NC reports, enhancements to the Automated Drill application, spiral cut milling and 3-5 Axis transformations in 5-Axis Production, and integrated CADENAS catalogs.
Streamlined Numerical Control:
Modified NC Setup Reports: Automatically-generated NC reports facilitate the information flow between NC programmers and the shop floor, providing machine operators with detailed information that includes the tool paths, procedures, tools, and parameters for each job. Images and user-specific information can be added to the reports, which can be presented either online or in print.
Automated Drill: New operations added to the Automated Drill application include profiling of holes and threading cycles, as well as pocketing for pre-drill preparation of difficult to drill areas such as slanted surfaces. These operations can be integrated into the automated drill sequence and reused from libraries to increase efficiency and accuracy.
5-Axis Production: CimatronE version 8.5 features new enhancements to the 5-Axis Production application, including spiral cut milling, 3-5 Axis transformations, and advances in impeller roughing.
Integrated CADENAS Catalogs
CADENAS PARTsolutions is now integrated into CimatronE 8.5, enabling mold makers to shorten design cycles by incorporating ready-made CADENAS catalog parts into Cimatron tool assemblies.
While the catalog functionality has long been available in Cimatron’s software, the CADENAS catalogs place thousands of new standard components at the disposal of Cimatron users, eliminating many of the manual and time-consuming steps in the tool design process.
