2 March 2011
Cimatron Limited, a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for mould, tool and die makers as well as manufacturers of discrete parts, announced the new version of CimatronE. Version 10.0 of CimatronE contains over 150 major enhancements and new functionality for mold makers, die makers and manufacturers in the areas of Quoting, Tool Design, Drafting, Electrode Creation and NC Programming. The latest enhancements provide extensive competitive benefits for toolmakers, in a single integrated solution.
CAD enhancements provide stronger, more powerful capabilities, including a new built-in Motion Simulator, which specializes in tooling and provides an advanced, event based analysis of kinematics. Die makers will enjoy an easier, more intuitive strip design process and greater automation for tool design. Mould designers will find that handling changes is simpler, with more powerful ECO analysis and implementation.
CAM enhancements dramatically increase programming productivity, with background calculations and enhanced multi-core processing. Machining times are reduced, with significant upgrades to rough and cleanup strategies, and there’s a new helical finish strategy.
"We’re excited to show the new enhancements to CimatronE 10.0," said Dirk Dombert, General Manager of Cimatron GmbH. "All of our customers will benefit from these enhancements. Mold designers and die designers will appreciate the new motion simulation, as well as a host of new CAD capabilities and increased automation. NC programmers will be pleased with background calculation, as well as other new enhancements and significant improvements to existing features."
