(NASDAQ: CIMT) has announced the integration of Celeritive's proven ultra high-performance toolpath technology, VoluMill, into CimatronE 11, the latest version of its acclaimed integrated CAD/CAM solution.
"Cimatron is committed to providing the very best technology available to promote reliability, accuracy and speed throughout the production process," said Mr
, Cimatron's VP Sales and Marketing.
"One of the most outstanding technologies that we have integrated into the latest version of our CimatronE solution is VoluMill, which provides shorter machining times while reducing tool wear.
"Operating in tandem with other CimatronE functionality, VoluMill maximizes material removal rates, offering up to three times faster machining, as well as prolonging the life of the tool."
The technology is available for two separate strategies in CimatronE:
- Pocket VoluMill- supports open pockets, 2D rest milling, and slotting or side-mill.
- Rough VoluMill - supports holder collision prevention, 3D stock update, and advanced between layers calculations.
The technology uses a high performance algorithm generating a high volume, yet constant material removal rate toolpath with smooth, stress-free moves between cuts, and cutting in sweet zones throughout, regardless of part shape. This results in dramatically shorter machining time and longer tool life.
"Cimatron's other leading machining solution, GibbsCAM, also features a VoluMill option, and GibbsCAM customers have seen tremendous gains as a result," said Mr Bareket.
CimatronE 11 also features a large range of enhanced and new functionalities across CAD and NC programming for mold and die makers and discrete part manufacturers. Further information is available at
