Givat Shmuel, Israel - September 14, 2007 – Leading machine vendors presenting at the upcoming EMO tradeshow will demonstrate live cutting of parts programmed by Cimatron's NC software.
GF AgieCharmilles (Booth B18, Hall 27) will demonstrate milling of an aerospace ring on their 5-Axis Mikron HPM 1850U Machine, showcasing the ability to minimize air cutting with stock consideration, swarfing and joggle shaping, as well as the usage of conic and undercut tools such as slot and dove-tail mills.
A 700 mm long steam turbine will be machined on Okuma's 5-Axis MB-66V Machine (Booth C18, Hall 27), highlighting the ability to maintain exact aerodynamic conditions and create a smooth surface finish, using 4-axis vertical machining center with 2 synchronized rotary tables, endless A axis, and continuous spiral cut.
Bharat Fritz Werner (Booth E26, Hall 27) will demostrate 3-Axis milling of a forging rod part on the high speed BFW Tejas Machine, utilizing multiple techniques to shorten cycle times, including rest roughing, corner reduction, and small cutters to eliminate the need for EDM.
Breton (Booth C53, Hall 13) will mill a 210mm dia. Impeller on their Ultrix 800RT machine, showcasing the ability to cope with complex parts using long tools and thin shanks to remove material between the blades and prevent vibration of the blade during milling.
With over 20,000 installations worldwide, Cimatron is a leading provider of CAD/CAM solutions for tool making and manufacturing. Cimatron's NC solutions include powerful built-in CAD capabilities that help prepare the geometry for best machining results.
Cimatron NC 5-Axis Production supports positioning and continuous milling, providing full control over the tilt and lead angles as well as complete gouge and collision check. Touch-of-a-button 5-axis tilting solution is especially suitable for parts with deep cavities, narrow ribs, and tight corners, allowing the use of shorter and rigid tools for rapid machining and superb surface quality.
Cimatron's 5-Axis solution includes a rich set of solutions to support streamlined 5-Axis machining of common applications such as impellers, turbine blades, electrodes, and engraving. To smooth the integration of the application into the 5-Axis manufacturing environment, an extensive selection of post-processors is provided by Cimatron.
"EMO provides a unique opportunity to see Cimatron's advanced machining capabilities demonstrated on multiple machines under one roof," said Danny Haran, Cimatron's President, and Chief Executive Officer. "With a range of NC solutions from 3- to 5-axis, we help leading tool makers and manufacturers produce high-quality tools and parts while significantly shortening delivery times."
The 2007 EMO trade fair will take place in Hanover, Germany. The latest products and services for the metalworking industry will be on display, with special emphases on cutting, splitting, milling and metal forming machine tools, manufacturing systems, precision tools, automation components, computer technology, industrial electronics, and accessories.
