Recently, 3D Systems has announced that two leading German industrial tool makers are using Cimatron® integrated CAD/CAM software by 3D Systems to overcome production challenges faster and more successfully.
Cimatron software, a dedicated design and manufacturing solution for tooling, is drawing renewed interest from customers in Germany because of its ability to design and deliver molds faster, maintain data integrity between design and manufacturing, and its outstanding electrode design and EDM programming application.
HARTING Applied Technologies, headquartered in Espelkamp, Germany, is a specialist in sophisticated toolmaking. Following a phased implementation of Cimatron, all application areas at HARTING are now served by this dedicated, integrated CAD/CAM software. This has helped HARTING to enhance data integration through the entire mold-making process, resulting in improved production quality and efficiency with decreased lead times, reduced scrap and improved tool quality.
VMR GmbH & Co. KG, located in Mönchweiler, Germany, offers a broad range of manufacturing technologies, uses Cimatron integrated CAD/CAM software to efficiently, cost-effectively design and manufacture prototypes and short manufacturing runs. The use of this software has helped the company reduce electrode design and manufacturing time by 70%.
