Cimatron will exhibit the latest version of the CimatronE machine simulator at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show, to be held on 19-22 October at the Direct Energy Center, Toronto.

At the event, Cimatron will emphasise enhancements to NC programming capabilities, many of which cater to the specific machining requirements of toolmakers.

These enhancements are included in the recently released CimatronE version 9.0, which contains a range of improved functions and new capabilities, upgrading the manufacturing process from quoting to delivery.

CimatronE 9.0 provides a new machine simulator, using a more advanced method to accurately and reliably verify the machining process.

The simulator displays material removal within the machine environment for both three- and five-axis machines.

CimatronE 9.0 will also provide NC programmers with increased machining efficiency, better surface quality and improved performance.

Version 9.0 also includes a product manufacturing information (PMI) display.

Machining efficiency is increased at every level.

Roughing is now more efficient because of greater awareness of remaining stock.

This eliminates air cutting, ensures greater safety in the machining process and extends machine life and tool life.

Multi-axis roughing is now more effective due to automatic transformation of the stock, saving time during roughing and at later stages.

The multi-axis automated drill now includes full stock recognition to speed up the drilling process and save time.

New programming functions facilitate a higher surface quality.

Finishing functions include features that increase accuracy and smoothness.

Among these is a new ‘Cleanup – All Along’ strategy, which enables users to machine the area left by the previous cutter with long, uninterrupted tool passes.

The new version also includes enhancements to maintain the sharpness of external and embedded edges.

Version 9.0 of CimatronE provides dedicated functions needed to accomplish better manufacturing in a broader range of industries, including the medical and dental industries, as well as the aerospace and other high-precision industries.

Enhancements include further adaption of the interface to work with STL free-form files and improvements in high-speed machining and micro-milling capabilities.

Enhancements for five-axis tilting include new machining strategies to speed up the calculation process.

The new version of CimatronE offers higher performance.

Calculation times have been reduced in most areas and performance of the software in general has improved, with full support of dual-core and quad-core processors.

Version 9.0 allows manufacturers to store product manufacturing information (PMI); annotations and notes are passed on through the different stages of the project from design to the shop floor.

Product manufacturing information is also transferable to and from other standard CAD systems.

In addition to NC programming-related updates, CimatronE 9.0 also offers enhancements, including a new quoting application for die makers, new automation for tool design and electrode design as well as enhancements for the five-axis manufacturing of discrete parts.
