Cimatron, DMG, ISCAR Demonstrate Dramatic Reductions in Machining Times With 5-Axis Technology
Jun 10, 2010 (11:06 AM EDT)


GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, June 10, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cimatron Limited (Nasdaq: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for mold, tool and die makers as well as manufacturers of discrete parts, announced that its Turkish service provider, Teykaz, partnered with DMG and ISCAR to demonstrate the benefits of 5-Axis Milling.

The two day seminar in Dudullu, Turkey, was hosted by Onaymak, a producer of small series of complex parts and a Cimatron customer. Representatives of about 25 companies attended the seminar, which included presentations and featured the live cutting of a mold insert on a DMU60 monoBLOCK 5-Axis machine.

Using the live cutting as an example, Alon Leuchter, an NC expert at Cimatron, showed how 5-Axis simultaneous milling and positioning had significantly reduced machining time.

"We proved that a finish operation that would have taken about half an hour with a 3-Axis machine could be completed in less than seven minutes on this insert from an automotive industry injection mold," Mr. Leuchter said. "Our customers can expect serious improvements in machining times, and in surface quality, when working with 5-Axis technology powered by CimatronE's flexible CAM programming capabilities."

A video excerpt of the live cutting is available from Cimatron's website, http://www.cimatron.com/Main/pressreleases.aspx?FolderID=68&docID=21054&lang= en
