Cimskil provides advanced knowledge-driven Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) products. These automate the generation of NC tool paths (up to 5 Axis) directly from the design (solid) model. The products comprise:
These are the system components and the data flow at run time:
Cimskil enables the automation of manufacturing engineering tasks based upon two fundamental technologies embodied in the above components:
These two fundamental enablers provide you with the ability to reduce your manufacturing throughput times by more effective use of your resources. Demonstrated results provide 50% to 80% savings in throughput time.
We believe Cimskil is the only manufacturing product that is driven by users' proven manufacturing experience, which exploits a part's solid model and associated information supplied by leading CAD systems. The software uses the latest technology to incorporate a company's actual manufacturing shop floor experience into the system for the automatic generation of manufacturing instructions.
The product provides template sets of standard methods and libraries, which are updated with company specific manufacturing methodology. While Cimskil enables an enormous amount of automation, it is important to stress again that all automated output can be accepted, edited or over-ridden by the end-user.
