Cimatron Limited announced today that CimatronE 12 will offer full automation over the entire insert design process. CimatronE provides integrated design and NC programming solutions for mold and die makers and manufacturers of discrete parts. The new functionality will be showcased at the Amerimold trade fair in Novi, MI, June 11-12, and at the Plastec East fair in New York, June 10-12.
"Cimatron remains committed to simplifying the work of mold designers and to expediting the machining and production of molds," said Mr Bill Gibbs, Cimatron's President North America.
"One of the exciting features in CimatronE 12 is the new insert design tool, which automates insert design and allows for machining of the insert at an early stage, even before the design of the plate has been completed.
"Aside from reducing design time, the tool also improves the insert quality, ensuring superb mold integrity."
The insert design tool automates most aspects of insert creation, such as design of the insert shape and insert fastening, as well as automatic cutting of the components or plate it goes through. Insert parts can be created using a sketch or by selecting faces and reliefs can be added automatically.
Other new mold design tools in CimatronE 12 to be demonstrated at Amerimold and Plastec East include: a new Moldex 3D module for simulating the cooling of the mold, a new table of ejectors, a new blank refit tool, and a new fully flexible and fully customizable EDM Setup interface.
The Cimatron display at Amerimold will be at booth #702 and at Plastec East at booth #625.
