Givat Shmuel, Israel – February 18, 2010 – 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 showcase GibbsCAM 2010 and CimatronE 9.0 at the METAV exhibition Feb 23rd to 27th, in Dusseldorf.
The new version of GibbsCAM (marketed in Germany as Virtual Gibbs) includes major enhancements to 5-Axis Milling and 3D solids machining, as well as new plunge roughing. GibbsCAM 2010 is fully compatible with Windows 7 and can operate at 64 bits, allowing users to make full use of RAM and program larger, more complex parts.
GibbsCAM 2010 also features VoluMill; VoluMill high speed roughing maximizes material removal rate and steadies tool load, reducing cycle times and extending tool life. VoluMill works on all solid, surface, and wireframe models, and any combination of part and stock boundaries. It supports an unlimited number of islands, tapered walls, variable pocket depths, and variable island heights.
"With the new version of GibbsCAM and many important enhancements to CimatronE, we are excited to present all of our manufacturing solutions at METAV," said Dirk Dombert, General Manager of Cimatron GmbH. "As the manufacturing industry begins to recover from the continuing crisis, ensuring maximum productivity is essential for survival and success, and our enhancements will help customers maintain high standards with shorter delivery times."
Recent enhancements to CimatronE, for mold and die makers, include the addition of the Moldex eXplorer. With Moldex, mold designers can now simulate and analyze the injection molding process from within CimatronE. This will enable users to ensure optimal placement of injection points, increasing the quality of the manufactured part. A free trial of Moldex is available to all CimatronE customers.
CimatronE can now operate at 64-bits, making full use of available memory, and is compatible with the Windows 7 Operating System.
In addition, those who work with both Cimatron product lines will now be able to transfer parts from CimatronE to GibbsCAM in one easy click.
The Cimatron GmbH booth is located in Hall 9, Booth E56.
680 top-ranking exhibitors from 26 different countries will be present at METAV 2010 from 23 to 27 February.
