Givat Shmuel, Israel – November 24, 2009 – 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 exhibit its latest Die Design solution at the BLECHEXPO Die Making Tradeshow in Germany (Hall 4, Booth 4208-1), December 1-4, 2009.
New enhancements to the Die Design solution increase automation, improve analysis capabilities, and handle changes across the entire die design process including forming, strip and tool design.
- Ability to pre-define parameters related to tool design and material used in order to further automate the tool design process.
- Improvements to dedicated applicative tools: The time-saving unbending capabilities have been enhanced to work in more situations including "unfold" and "L-Unbend", for unbending sharp corners.
- New piercing design functionality allows users to easily plan the piercing sequence of array of holes and create the suitable faces.
- Easy implementation of geometry changes in each of the forming shapes and stations across the project.
- A new die forces analysis tool which calculates the forces applied on the strip during production, allowing for a quick estimate of the required press capacity.
Cimatron GmbH will also be showcasing CimatronE's new DieQuote Solution, a new breakthrough solution which helps die shop estimators reach a higher level of accuracy in record time.
CimatronE DieQuote is a "CAD to Cost" solution, which means it interprets CAD work to generate a cost estimate automatically. The die shop estimator can use CimatronE's advanced hybrid system, along with tools tailored to die making needs, to lay out the project quickly by only performing tasks necessary for creating a quote. All cost related factors established in the preliminary design are automatically interpreted into a cost estimate, which can then be fine-tuned by a die shop professional.
The solution includes a full range of quoting management features allowing users to re-use past quotes, track all job offers and easily store a wide range of cost-relevant information. Finalized price estimates are converted into ready-to-send, eye-catching, professional quotes.
"We look forward to showing visitors the competitive edge they can achieve by using CimatronE's dedicated 3D die making solution," said Dirk Dombert, General Manager of Cimatron GmbH. "Design features like accurate blanking capabilities and advanced analysis tools, as well as many tool design features, significantly increase accuracy and shorten delivery times."
