New capabilities ensure quick and effective drilling and prolonged tool life
Givat Shmuel, Israel – December 11, 2013 – Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT) today profiled the new and enhanced capabilities of CimatronE 11, the latest version of its integrated CAD/CAM software, in supporting all major gun drilling needs.
Longtime CimatronE customer, Drilling Co., based in Castelvetro (Modena), Italy, has successfully deployed CimatronE 11 across its various gun drilling operations, such as deep drilling in molds, plates, rods, shafts, and gears.
New and enhanced functionality available to Drilling Co. includes full user control over all gun drilling sequences (such as the drill's spindle speed, spindle direction, feed rate and distances), and safer machining with collision prevention during connecting motions and holder collision check against the part, actual remaining stock, and clamps.
Says Drilling Co.'s Vice President, Fabrizio Rossi:
"The new version of CimatronE provides maximum benefit at every stage of the gun drilling process. It's given us safe drilling, reduced machining time, and increased tool life, as well as easier programming with full user control.
"Today, with our multi-axis machines and CimatronE, we can drill holes that are longer than two meters deep, enabling us to manufacture parts that are perfectly calibrated.
"We've also seen an improvement in our overall cycle time, enabling us to deliver high-quality parts to our customers quicker."
Additional new and enhanced gun and automated drilling capabilities in CimatronE 11 include:
- Actual drilling order for intersected holes and machined pockets – prevention against tool strain and faster machining with the drill slowing automatically when arriving at an intersection of cooling channels or pockets.
- Increased drilling productivity – includes a new helical profile cycle; additional control for optimizing the drilling order when drilling several holes; and automatic re-grouping after stock or geometry changes.
- Simplified programming – offers an enhanced selection of drilling area and sequences that fit more hole variations.
