Software offers streamlined die design, enhanced flexibility & major time savings
Givat Shmuel, Israel – October 24, 2013 – Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT) will be showcasing the new die design features in CimatronE 11, the latest version of its acclaimed integrated CAD/CAM software solution, at Blechexpo in Stuttgart, Germany, November 5-8, 2013.
"German tool shops are renowned for producing dies of exceptionally high quality, and Cimatron is pleased to assist these shops in meeting their exacting needs," said Mr. Dirk Dombert, Cimatron Group's General Manager for Germany.
"The new CimatronE 11, in particular, offers unprecedented benefits to tool shops by minimizing die design time and costs, while maximizing die quality. The built-in die design solution is both flexible and intuitive, providing shops with all the tools that they require to successfully design and program all types of dies and all types of jobs, no matter how complex."
The major new features for die design in CimatronE 11 include:
- Flexible layout design for progressive and transfer dies: A new, combined environment for the layout design for both progressive and transfer dies provides users with a more simplified and streamlined design process, enhanced flexibility, and a reduced learning curve for new users.
- New die tool environment: A separate die tool design environment maximizes the ability for several designers to work on different parts and stages of a project concurrently, thereby helping to reduce overall design time.
- Material utilization and nesting: A new material utilization and nesting tool for transfer dies helps ensure the optimal use of the raw material, providing shops with valuable cost savings.
- Springback analysis & deform: A new spring back analysis tool minimizes the need for the costly and time-consuming iterative process of design, tool manufacture, and trial on the shop-floor.
"These features represent the cutting-edge of die design technology and I encourage tool shops to visit our booth at Blechexpo or to contact their local Cimatron office for a live demonstration," said Mr. Dombert.
The Cimatron display at Blechexpo will be in Hall 4, booth #4105.
