CimatronE Enhancements for 5-Axis Milling to be Showcased at Eastec

Novi, Michigan – Cimatron Limited (Nasdaq: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for mold, tool and die makers as well as manufacturers of discrete parts, announced that it will showcase enhancements to 5-Axis machining in the latest version of CimatronE at Eastec.

Newly released enhancements maintain CimatronE's record for short machining times, while enabling an even higher surface quality.

The CimatronE Impellor Roughing Application is designed to meet the aerospace industry's most challenging demands on complexity, while minimizing cycle times as well as calculation times. New enhancements to the impellor roughing application provide better orientation and control for any tool, including tapered cutters. Additional features provide the option to smooth the toolpath orientation and easily define depth cuts. Stock consideration allows the application to minimize air cutting, optimize links and apply transformations to shorten calculation time.

In the latest version of CimatronE, the Machine Simulator uses a more advanced method to accurately and reliably verify the machining process. The simulator displays material removal within the machine environment for both 3-Axis and 5-Axis machines.

Additional improvements include shorter calculation times for Tilting. Tilting uses simultaneous 5-Axis milling to allow short robust tools to reach all required areas while avoiding collisions between the part and the shank or holder. CimatronE’s Tilting is very easy to use; there is no need to define guiding contours.

“At Eastec, we will demonstrate both of Cimatron’s product lines, CimatronE and GibbsCAM, catering to every sector of the manufacturing industry,” said Bill Gibbs, President of Cimatron Technologies, USA. “Cimatron’s offerings at Eastec will include powerful solutions for tool design, as well as solutions for 2.5-5 Axis milling, turning, and MTM (Multi-Task Machining) for any industry.”

The Eastec trade show will take place in West Springfield, Mass., USA from May 25th through May 27th. CimatronE will be displayed in Booth 5433, and GibbsCAM in Booth 5429.
