Givat Shmuel, Israel – September 17, 2009 – 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, released details of new enhancements for electrode design and manufacturing available in CimatronE 9.0.
CimatronE offers a host of applicative tools and applications to allow mold makers to work faster and design more sophisticated, advanced molds accurately. CimatronE's solution for electrode design and manufacturing was praised by CIMdata as one of the most advanced available.
In Version 9.0 of CimatronE, electrode makers will find it easier to quickly reproduce identical electrodes as well as accelerate the design of similar electrodes. When two different electrodes have the same design process, CimatronE allows users to copy the design process on the spot and adapt it to the new electrode. An additional new feature simplifies the design of a second electrode that mirrors the first in one simple step.
CimatronE version 9.0 includes a host of enhancements that make last minute changes easier and less disruptive. Any changes made to the mold, which might affect the electrode, are recognized and reported immediately, to allow swift and safe implementation of changes.
Interference Check Analysis makes sure that there are no collisions between the electrode and the mold itself. This allows electrode makers to use automated design tools to create many electrodes quickly and apply changes with complete confidence.
In version 9.0, the burning conditions for the electrode (spark gap and orbiting), as defined in the electrode application, are automatically transferred to the NC programmer and the new CMM application. This feature allows the NC programmer to ensure the necessary modifications are made before electrode manufacturing and use take place.
CimatronE 9.0 also introduces a CMM application which includes special functions for measuring of electrodes. The CMM application automatically compensates for spark gap and orbiting, as well as the electrode rough offset, when applicable, making sure that the geometry of the electrode was manufactured correctly considering burning conditions.
