GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, February 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
CimatronE, the integrated CAD/CAM tooling solution offered by Cimatron Limited
(NASDAQ and TASE: CIMT), has helped streamline operations at Kentucky-based
Quality Tooling, one of the most reputable tooling and engineering providers
to the leading automotive and appliance OEMs and suppliers.
Quality Tooling became a Cimatron customer after looking for ways to maximize
the speed at which its machines operated. In many cases, several runs were
required to complete a project and costly cutters needed to be replaced often
due to the multiple runs and inconsistent feed rates and chip loads.
After a review of various CAD/CAM solutions on the market, Quality Tooling
selected CimatronE as its software of choice. Since the business switched to
CimatronE, the speed of production has more than doubled and cutters now last
longer, resulting in significant cost savings.
Said Brian Alvey, Quality Tooling's Vice President: "Making the investment in
Cimatron was a big move for us because we are a small company, but the
investment was well worth it and has probably been one of the best we ever
made. Whenever you go looking at what you are gaining, that investment is very
minor because you will save thousands of dollars just in cutters alone."
"Cimatron keeps a fairly constant chip load and feed rate. Therefore, it
maintains cutter sharpness. Parts are produced quicker because you don't have
to go back and rerun things. If you cut one job in Cimatron, you may use two
cutters. If you cut that same job with one of the lower-end software you may
use eight cutters. That translates into major savings."
CimatronE has also provided Quality Tooling with a closed loop system to
streamline the electrode process.Using the electrode templates saves
programming time, and the simulation capabilities eliminate the need for
double setups and the risk of electrodes hitting parts.If a change is made to
the NC file, it automatically updates the electrodes, leaving less chance for
According to Alvey, the addition of CimatronE has brought in more repeat
business, as customers have noticed that delivery times have improved: "We
have to compete with the overseas market and anything we can do to make our
products look better is important. Cimatron has helped us tremendously."
