"CimatronE helps mold shops achieve high speed roughing through its integration of VoluMill, the ultra-high performance machining technology," said Mr. Dirk Dombert, Cimatron Group's General Manager for Germany.
"Recent test cuts in Germany using the integrated VoluMill functionality in CimatronE have demonstrated a fantastic reduction of 42% in the overall machining time of mold plates and up to 30% reduction in the machining time of mold cores.
"Aside from the dramatic reduction in milling time, the VoluMill high speed roughing technology increases tool life, as it maintains constant side step and chip load throughout the milling process."
VoluMill is available for two separate milling strategies in CimatronE: Pocket VoluMill (includes support for open pockets, 2D rest milling, and the option of slotting or side-mill) and Rough VoluMill (which includes the Pocket VoluMill and adds support for full 3D roughing needs).
VoluMill is also available in Cimatron's other leading machining solution, GibbsCAM, for production of discrete parts.
VoluMill functionality and the many other capabilities of both CimatronE and GibbsCAM will be demonstrated at the Cimatron booth at METAV – Hall 14, Booth A119.
