Givat Shmuel, Israel – December 4, 2013 – Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT) today announced that its integrated CAD/CAM software CimatronE now enables safe connectivity to DMG MORI machines and controls without the need for custom post processors or machine simulations.
"CimatronE has long offered one of the largest, error-free libraries of post-processors for practically all 3-axis and 5-axis machines and all leading controllers, and we are happy to now go one step further in providing safe connectivity to all DMG MORI machines," said Mr Ira Bareket, Cimatron's VP Sales and Marketing.
The development is the result of cooperation between Cimatron and DMG MORI that enables CimatronE customers to use the company's machines with MAPPS controls without the need for custom post-processors or machine simulation models. CimatronE users continue to program parts in the way they are used to but, rather than running a standard Cimatron post-processor, a DMG MORI-specific APT-CL file is generated in CimatronE. This will then be imported into the Manufacturing Suite product from DMG MORI, outputting a G-code that is loaded into the MAPPS controller of the machine.
The development is expected to result in improved overall tool shop productivity across the board given the much simpler and quicker experience it offers to NC programmers sending data for machining.
"Cimatron is pleased to have partnered with DMG MORI on this important initiative, which will help to promote seamless, confident and error-free machining among our customers worldwide," said Mr Bareket.
