3D Systems to Acquire Cimatron
The two companies have entered into a definitive agreement for the acquisition.
High Speed Leads to Lights-Out
This mold maker has become more competitive by establishing a high speed machining process that is predictable enough to confidently run lights-out.
Mold Shop Cures the “Curse of Knowledge”
How do you transfer knowledge from skilled employees to apprentices? Here’s how one shop did it using a Facebook-like sharing system.
Software Streamlines Model-to-Mold Production
At Marland Mold, CimatronE CAM software’s modeling tools, postprocessors and other features streamline manufacturing operations from initial design to finished part.
Partners Aim to Improve Micromachining Efficiency
Under a new partnership and distribution agreement, Microlution (Chicago, Illinois) will offer CAD/CAM software and post processors from Cimatron Technologies (Novi, Michigan) to users of its line of CNC micromachining centers.
Last Glance at IMTS 2010
It would be impossible to cover all of the key exhibitors at IMTS 2010—even if every booth got merely a quick glance. However, the editors of MMS did get glimpses of some interesting technologies exhibited at the show...
The Progress of a Progressive Die Maker
This shop sees no long-term threat in the reality of lower prices. Machine tool investments related to various die components allow the shop to use skilled labor more efficiently.
Webinar: Tool Shop Optimization Case Studies -- Survival of the Quickest
This webinar from Cimatron describes how winning mold and die makers are able to use their speed to produce high quality tools at lower cost, and respond to customers more effectively.

Software Addresses Quoting Through Delivery
According to the company,CimatronE v. 9. 0 CAD/CAM solution suite addresses the entire process―from quoting through design, engineering changes, NC and EDM programming to delivery.
Integrating Design, Manufacturing Processes
Lack of associativity between this shop’s design and manufacturing software packages led to extra work and a high risk of introducing errors into the process. To address these challenges, the mold manufacturer implemented an end-to-end CAD/CAM package from Cimatron that ensured a seamless workflow and eliminated time-consuming manual operations.
3D Designs Lend Process Transparency, Improved Communication
This shop wanted to use a CAD system to replace its 2D pencil-and-paper designs. CimatronE software helped the shop streamline its design process while saving valuable machining time on the shop floor.
From Mold Making To Mold Manufacturing
Pro Mold had to change its entire shop culture to make the move to “net machining.” The experience made the company stronger.
Software Standardization Simplfies Electrode Design
To remain competitive, this manufacturer has had to adapt to changes in the demands of its customers, including leadtime reduction. This software has enabled the company to design and build molds more efficiently. Prior to standardizing on the software, the company used disparate applications for each department.
CAD/CAM Considerations For Micromilling
Milling with tools that are smaller than 100 microns in diameter presents equipment design and toolpath-generation challenges. This NC software maker offers strategies for creating safe, optimized tool paths for micromilling.
Software Streamlines Tool And Die Shop's Operations
Since 1980, this company has grown from a 3,800-square-foot building to housing 400,000 square feet and 260 skilled employees in three separate buildings.
Mold Machining And Beyond
Adopting high speed machining entailed some surprises. One of the surprises was an unforeseen opportunity for new work.
