Cimatron, BFW to Showcase Blade Machining Capabilities


Cimatron Limited (Nasdaq: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for mold, tool and die makers as well as manufacturers of discrete parts, announced that CimatronE will power a range of different milling machines at the IMTEX trade show in Bangalore, India, January 20th -26th 2011.

The machining will be done in conjunction with Bharat Fritz Werner Ltd. (BFW), a renowned machine tool builder in India. Cimatron and BFW work closely to provide their customers with optimal machining results.

CimatronE will power the machining of blades for the aerospace and civil engineering industries in the BFW booth (1A, A102), including a 4-Axis turbine blade and a 5-Axis Impeller. The blade will be cut with a continuous helical toolpath, working from a shaped stock for optimal machining times and a smooth surface finish. The impeller machining also maintains a very high quality polish free surface while using long tools and thin shanks to remove material between blades.

CimatronE offers a rich selection of machining strategies and dedicated applications for 2.5 to 5 Axis Milling. These include dedicated impeller machining applications that make it simpler for users to program optimal toolpaths that cut efficiently and safely in short cycle times and achieve a very high surface quality without polish.

“We are looking forward to partnering with BFW once again at this event,“ said Edsel Vaz, Cimatron’s country manager for India. “This is another example of successful relationships we have built with Machine Tool Builders that help us to better serve our customers.”
