GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Cimatron Limited (CIMT) announced today that a recent test cut in Japan using CimatronE dramatically reduced machining time by 72%. The complete results will be shown at the Design, Engineering and Manufacturing Solutions Expo (DMS) in Tokyo, Japan, June 25-27, 2014. CimatronE provides integrated design and NC programming solutions for mold and die makers and manufacturers of discrete parts.
At the booth of CimatronE distributor Saeilo (booth East #9-30), a machined tire mold and a video documenting the mold's machining process will be shown.
The mold was created in record time on a Mazak Variaxis i-700 machine using CimatronE's Rough VoluMill and 5-axis finishing capabilities.
Using traditional machining capabilities, the milling time for this particular job was 134 minutes. With CimatronE's VoluMill, the milling time was only 38 minutes - a dramatic time saving of 72%.
Cimatron with VoluMill generates a high volume, yet constant, material removal rate toolpath with smooth, stress-free moves, and cutting in sweet zones throughout, regardless of part shape. This results in significantly shorter machining time and longer tool life.
"These amazing results prove that CimatronE with VoluMill provides a market leading solution for ultra-high performance volume milling of mold plates," said Mr Kobi Rosenwasser, Cimatron's VP Asia Pacific.
"I encourage visitors to DMS to visit our booth and witness first-hand how our technology can help them dramatically reduce machining time and increase profitability."
