Givat Shmuel, Israel - November 3, 2008 – Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, today announced that leading machine builders presenting at Japan's International Machine Tool Fair (JIMTOF) are showcasing parts cut on their advanced machining solutions and programmed by Cimatron's NC software.
OKK (Booth E5004) is demonstrating cutting of an aerospace joystick on a VP400-5XA machine, showcasing high velocity continuous 5-axis machining resulting in polish-free quality of a complex surface part.
Machine builder Roku-Roku (Booth E3019) is showing an electrode and golf club programmed by Cimatron and cut on the Roku-Roku MEGA-S high precision / high speed machining center. Cimatron's advanced micro milling capabilities provide the accuracy required for producing these parts, with top surface quality of up to 0.19 Micron.
Visitors to the Mazak booth (E4013) can see a car light cut on the VCN410A-II high speed machine. Programmed with CimatronE NC, the part exhibits high surface quality with deep cavity mold that eliminates the need for using electrodes, drastically reducing machining cost and time.
Cimatron's products, including the latest die design and NC applications, will also be on display at the Saeilo Japan Inc. booth (W0024).
With over 40,000 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.
"JIMTOF provides a unique opportunity to get a firsthand view of the latest machining technologies, including Cimatron's advanced CAM capabilities," said Danny Haran, Cimatron's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Working closely with global leading machine vendors, we help leading tool makers and manufacturers produce high quality tools and parts while significantly shortening delivery times."
