In another industry first, Cimatron Ltd. (NASDAQ: CIMT), a leading global provider of integrative CAD/CAM software solutions for toolmakers, announced the first commercial NC software for micro-milling – machining of tiny, highly precise micro-components and their molds. The solution is available as a feature of Cimatron’s flagship product suite CimatronE 7.0. Micro-system technology has become one of the most dynamic growing industries in the world, and confronts manufacturers of tools and components with unique challenges. Parts are shrinking, while increasing in complexity; miniature features must be machined with extreme accuracy, and work on the micro level requires special tools – as small as 0.1mm in diameter – to achieve the required accuracy and surface quality. Cimatron’s solution meets and exceeds the requirements of micro-tooling: a unique algorithm and special machining strategies successfully apply CimatronE’s proven CAD/CAM functionality to support milling at levels traditional NC software cannot achieve. Characteristics of the solution include: high precision, tight machining tolerance, effective handling of imperfect imported geometrical data, direct surface milling, and 3- & 5-axis toolpaths.
