Leading precision parts manufacturer Sharon Tuvia Ltd. uses CimatronE to support Additive Manufacturing production chain
Givat Shmuel, Israel – April 23, 2013 – Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT) today announced that its customer, Sharon Tuvia (1982) Ltd., uses CimatronE in its Additive Manufacturing production process of making advanced products, targeted primarily at the aerospace, electro optical and medical industries.
Explains Mr Ronen Sharon, CEO of Sharon Tuvia: “Our Company specializes in manufacturing high-end metal products, meeting stringent demands of quality, precision, strength and low weight. Some products simply cannot be produced using traditional manufacturing methods and require the usage of laser melting additive manufacturing technology.”
“We receive from our customers CAD files of their products, and use CimatronE CAD functionality to perform the necessary modifications and preparations of the model in order to make it ‘printable’. Once 3D Printing of the part is completed, we use CimatronE NC to finish off the part by drilling holes and threads, and CNC milling of certain faces of the part to achieve the desired surface finish and accuracy.”
“We are proud to have highly professional customers like Sharon Tuvia, who push manufacturing capabilities to the limit,” said Danny Haran, CEO of Cimatron.
“It is through such cooperation that our products evolve, and we hope to develop more capabilities that would further help streamline hybrid production processes. We see great potential in using multiple manufacturing technologies, such as Additive Manufacturing (including 3D Printing), alongside more traditional technologies like milling and EDM, for producing complex and demanding parts,” concluded Mr. Haran.
