Greetings!
Being a leader in today's manufacturing industry requires you to be a technology pioneer. Even states are taking strides to become technology leaders with innovative improvements, such as Ohio in the case of green energy.
Pioneering shops are now turning to advanced technologies like micro milling to meet the new demands of producing micro-sized products. However, there are many aspects to consider before committing to this growing market. Less forgiving than traditional milling, each machine and its components must be suitable to the unique requirements of the task at hand. And, your choice of the size of the machine you are purchasing can have a dramatic affect on the level of production you will be able to achieve. Download this free white paper to learn more ways to capitalize on the micro milling opportunity.
The cyclical path of global outsourcing is making its way back to the US. Following unsatisfactory experiences and mounting frustration in recent years, U.S. mold makers are increasingly seeing projects coming back from offshore and making a strong case for the value advantage of building molds locally.
Die makers and fabricators also reported positive news at the recent 2009 FABTECH Intl. & AWS Welding Show. Though some had different approaches to surviving the down economy, they all are focusing on one thing now - preparing for the recovery.

Hmmm... since setting up my filters this group died. So, I checked back in using Goofy Groups and can now see I apparently forgot to clip the excess text. In my current Tbird settings it wouldn't have allowed me to include such gobs of quoted text (which is a good thing). That said, most threads die when certain constraints are met which makes this group look much less active.
But yes Siemens and I sure others all offer webinars.

Greetings!
Have the recent trying economic times affected consumer spending? Many would agree that yes, a shift to a more frugal-minded, earth- conscious, safety-focused consumer base is evident and is having an impact on the manufacturing industry in more ways than one.
Business spending has also been impacted by the economy. 2009 meant spending freezes and near-impossible credit lending. However, the pendulum is swinging in a positive direction. With manufacturing activity at its highest point since August 2004, banks are finally loosening their belts and making financing more accessible for small businesses.
Companies that capitalize on the desire for cost- savings, earth- friendly products are well positioned for future growth. One such company is Amcor PET Packaging, which has recently unveiled new plastic bottle designs aimed at saving cost while using less material.
And, leave it to Apple to continue to be innovative with its products, as it recently revealed the latest - the iPad. But, can it fit into the manufacturing environment?

March, 2010     Cimatron Tooling Tips!     Greetings!
Welcome to Cimatron Tooling Tips! This is a monthly email with information that will help you optimize your Cimatron products.
    March Tooling Tips Webinar          computer hardware Join us on Wednesday, March 24th, for our monthly Tooling Tips webinar designed to help you get the ultimate performance out of your Cimatron software. Start saving time and increasing productivity by attending our monthly webinar.
Topic: Prepping parts for use in NC.
Note - if you have already registered, there is no need to re- register. Register now.     Tips & Tricks by the Cimatron Support Staff
Tip #1 New in Cimatron E9.0 are tools for creating Product Manufacturing Information (PMI). These PMI functions are used in a 3D environment to capture manufacturing information that conforms to the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Y14.41- 2003 standard. They are 3D annotations, such as text and dimensions of many types. Other symbols for tolerances and surface finishes are planned for future releases. PMI annotations can be created in any active part or assembly and are also viewable when the models are included in drafting documents.
Tip #2 Prior to version 9.0, defining lines to a reference face required manual selection of the relevant reverence face for each line. This was not only time consuming; it also didn't support automatic propagation of changes to line location and reference faces. Cimatron E 9.0 supports definition of multiple lines to a group of faces, which simplifies the creation process and supports the propagation of geometric changes to line location and reference faces.
Tip #3 Almost any sketch will require a connection to existing geometries in the file. As only the coordinate system point is given by default, others must be added using Add Reference. Add Reference will pick part edges, many points, and even datum entities like planes and coordinate systems. All of these get projected into the current sketch plane. An extra click in the filter tool will add the Faces selection option. Using Add Reference on an entire face will bring all its internal and external loops into the sketch at once, which is a faster way to get many references rather than picking them one at a time.
The face selection filter also works with the Add Geometry tool. Add Geometry by the entire face is the best option for creating a sketch that duplicates the edges of an existing shape.
Tip #4 The data and knowledge from a Cimatron EDM project can be output in many different ways. Often, electrode dimensions are displayed on drawings or sent directly to the EDM machine. Another way of providing useful information is the Electrode Report. Creating the Electrode Report is done with a right mouse click in the electrode tree. From the report screen you have control over four areas that will be output as an Excel document for easy printing.
The top area is a section for the job number and general comments. The second area is for describing the work piece to be burnt. The third area provides information about the electrodes. The last area shows the location and burn dimensions for each electrode. This is a lot of information for one page, sometimes even too much information. There are ways to customize the Electrode Report to include just the information you need.
In each area, you can right click the mouse and select the columns shown in the report. When you close and save the report, it will become the default style for future reports you create. Another option accessible with a right mouse click is to output information for just a single electrode or electrode location, which will produce a significantly shorter report.

May, 2010      Cimatron Tooling Tips!     Greetings!
Welcome to Cimatron Tooling Tips! This is a monthly email with information that will help you optimize your Cimatron products.
    May Tooling Tips Webinar          computer hardware Join us on Wednesday, May 26th, for our monthly Tooling Tips webinar designed to help you get the ultimate performance out of your Cimatron software. Start saving time and increasing productivity by attending this webinar.
Topic: GPP2 Post
Note - if you have already registered, there is no need to re- register. Register now.     Tips & Tricks by the Cimatron Support Staff
Tip #1 The Cut Manager presents new options for Add operations, providing complete control over how the design is affected by adding the new component. Cut Manager lists the components that are in contact with the added component. The checkbox next to each component indicate whether it is going to be cut by the new part cutting object (according to the existing cutting rule) and are checked accordingly. The user may manually change the cut analysis results: checking the box will force a cut into a part that may otherwise/originally be an open solid, and un-checking the box will prevent needless cuts in plates that may already be cleared.
Tip #2 Adding components to an assembly by placing them on a face creates a sketch in Cimatron E9. The sketch is an assembly-level feature, holding the dimensions or snap points where components are placed. On occasion, there may be a need to place additional components in the assembly using the same exact X and Y coordinates as a previously added component. In such cases, don't bother hunting for the sketch in the assembly tree. Instead, just right-click the mouse, and select Pick Reference Component. Then select any one of the previously added parts, and the new component will be placed in the same location. What's more, components added using this method can still be individually adjusted. Each snap point has a break option to allow moving it away from the point.
Tip #3 Cimatron has long had the Quick Split function to help divide up plastic parts into sides to be molded. Quick Split organizes the faces from a part into groups. It also organizes the shutoff surfaces built out from the parting lines. It's good to understand the differences between these Part and Parting surfaces. Any part surface will be exported into a single mold component. Parting are steel shutoff surfaces, and therefore must be identical in the two mold components. That's the reason they are illustrated as two faces during the Quick Split animation, and why you must pick two groups when assigning the parting attribute. Part faces and parting faces each have their own tool to distribute them into the mold cavities. Part faces use Export to Part. It can simultaneously create multiple new parts in assembly. Parting faces use Export Parting Faces. This function incorporates a cut of the work piece along with the transfer of shape.
Tip #4 Cimatron's E9.0 non-uniform scaling can now scale by bounding box. This eliminates the need for you to calculate the scaling ratios. The system creates a bounding box around the part and displays the dimensions of the original box. To the left is the area where you enter the new XYZ lengths that you want the part scaled to.

Greetings!
Massive layoffs, plant closings, and the continuing threat of overseas competition have created a lasting erosion in the public's perception of the North American manufacturing industry. This negative perception is now creating a secondary long-term effect that is less publicly noticed - discouraging youth from entering a manufacturing career. However, the shortage of highly skilled employees is already a problem being felt by some manufacturers. According to experts' predictions, the problem will continue growing. Telling the mainstream about manufacturing is an important stride we should all partake in to ensure a vibrant future for our manufacturing sector.
Mazak Corp. Canada is doing its part by participating and contributing annually in the Canadian Skills Competition. The Canadian Skills Competition showcases and raises awareness for skilled trades in Canada. Events like this not only help produce talented professionals, but also pave the way for quality products we can all enjoy for years to come.
A company committed to superior quality and customer satisfaction is A-1 Tool Company (Melrose Park, IL). Focusing on delivering value to customers, taking an in-depth look at the customer's processes, and challenging the traditional approaches present an opportunity for profitability for both the Mold Maker and the customer.
For Die Makers, carefully evaluating processes such as die changes can help pinpoint bottlenecks and problem areas. Developing a successful quick- changeover process can help streamline shop floor workflows and deliver significant savings in time and money.

Manufacturing & Tooling Update Cimatron Newsletter June, 2010
Greetings!
The road to economic recovery is not always smooth or short. However, economists continue to report that we are still on the recovery path. The evidence from the manufacturing front is that for die makers, business is picking up and toolrooms are buzzing with activity.
Many companies had to make very tough decisions during the down times some involving significant changes to their business operations.
For example, injection molder Polymer Conversions and its customer, SensGard LLC, have embraced a refreshing change by developing a special partnership in an effort to bring an exciting new technology to market.
And, if your business hasnt experienced change, it likely will during these times of improvement. How you manage the change can notably impact how effective these changes are going to be.
