Cimatron Limited today announced that CimatronE 11, the latest version of its acclaimed integrated CAD/CAM software solution, will be shown at the Mechatronics Technology Japan (MECT) trade show in Nagoya, October 23-26.
“With the Japanese economy experiencing immense growth, many local manufacturers are turning to Cimatron as a way of ramping up their production levels, and sales of CimatronE have increased as a result,” said Mr Kobi Rosenwasser, Cimatron’s VP Asia Pacific.
“CimatronE has a long and successful track record in Japan, and the software is uniquely placed to offer local manufacturers innovative machining strategies and programming efficiencies that can reduce production time while guaranteeing more accurate milling and better surface quality.
“CimatronE’s 5-axis solution, for example, enables machining in deep corners, helping to reduce the need for electrodes. Our Volumill option offers dramatic time savings with ultra-high material removal and extended tool life. Our finish parallel strategy provides an unprecedented degree of automation, with full support for auto milling angles, centralized paths, rounded internal corners, automatic overlaps and air extensions.
“Aside from the benefits offered by CimatronE’s capabilities, our Japanese resellers, Saeilo and Camtus, provide a high level of localized training and support, offering manufacturers the peace of mind that their operations can continue to run successfully, no-matter the time or day.”
The MECT trade show will include demonstrations of the software at the booths of Saeilo (#1C56) and Camtus (#1C80).
New CimatronE capabilities to be shown include:
- Programming efficiency – dynamic setting of milling direction for 3+2 axis milling, the ability to change cutter without recalculation, and a new mechanism for determining toolpath recalculation.
- Finish operations – enhanced programming automation and new capabilities for machining near a surface’s edge.
- VoluMill – ultra high volume material removal capability in both Pocket and Rough offering dramatically reduced machining times and longer tool life.
- Material removal simulation – highly accurate results with a new embedded simulator.
- 5 axis milling – new strategies, including new automatic tilting, enhanced gouge and collision check, new capabilities for swarfing, improved multi-blade machining, and new machine simulation modes.
- Automated drilling – new gouge prevention while drilling and collision prevention during connections, and more flexible and powerful sequences for handling a wide range of holes.
