Using Cimatron for the entire die making
process makes us much more efficient than
we were when we used different software
packages for different tasks.



Tooling Design. Plymouth, Michigan, USA. According to Skinner, Cimatron is helping TNT do a better job and win more business every day. "Recently, we landed a large customer because we were able to turn over the entire mold, from design to manufacturing, in two weeks. There's no doubt in my mind we wouldn't have been able to do it without the assistance of Cimatron software.
TNT has grown and expanded from its origin as a tool and die shop into a production-machining contractor for the medical, automotive and aerospace industries. Long regarded as one of the most progressive shops in the industry, TNT EDM continues to expand its operation and maintain its competitiveness through an adept use of technology. TNT EDM has made a name for itself as a model tooling company. Its state-of-the-art facility in Plymouth, Michigan is designed to “demonstrate excellence to our customers and provide an extremely comfortable environment for our people,” says Tom Mullen, TNT president and owner.
“My employees are top-quality. The equipment and shop I provide should also be top-quality!"
Though TNT was founded as an EDM shop, much of its work today involves conventional and hard milling as well. Shop equipment includes high-speed 3- through 5-axis milling machines as well as orbital sinker and top-of-the-line Mitsubishi wire EDMs.

The Challenge TNT EDM works with large customers that provide the company with the most challenging and complex jobs. TNT is faced with the challenge of maintaining the high quality for which it is known, while responding to increasing pressure to lower costs and shorten delivery times.The Solutions was TNT EDM uses CimatronE for all the tasks involved in the production cycle. By using a single package throughout the shop enables TNT EDM to continuously deliver high quality product on-time. User training time has been reduced and productivity increased and TNT EDM Standardizes Processes with CimatronThe Challenge Save Time and Costs, Maintain Top Quality. Its large customers provide TNT with challenging and complex jobs. TNT must maintain its well-known high quality, while responding to increasing pressure to shorten delivery times. TNT also faces production challenges. According to Chris Skinner, TNT system administrator, “We have CAD data thrown at us from all different types of software.
We need a solution that is flexible enough to take any data and run the entire tooling process fluidly.” Solution: CimatronE Integrative Solution For ToolingToday, TNT uses Cimatron for the entire production cycle. "We spent over two years looking for t he ideal software, one that provides a more complete solution," says Skinner. In over eighteen years of using CAD/CAM software, Skinner has often been frustrated by the need to use different products for different tasks. "We wanted a single software solution for the entire design and manufacturing process. This means our solution needs a fle xible translator that deals effectively with numerous data formats. It must have robust modeling capabilities with an intuitive interface. And probably most important, we need an NC solution that is true 'machinist software' in handling everything from very simple routines to the most complex surfacing, with minimal ramp up time for new users." Results: TNT Wins New Business With Cimatron On BoardSkinner is happy to report that Cimatron proved to be different from other software investigated. "Using a single solution saves us lots of time that would otherwise be spent moving data and translating files. We save even more time since Cimatron is really geared toward tooling and automates many tasks, down to electrode design, process sheets, engineering changes, and 3- to 5-axis NC."In addition to CimatronE integration and automation, Skinners notes some other areas where Cimatron excels: Hybrid Modeling: "Cimatron helps get things done quicker and better. It’s very powerful and flexible for both solid and surface work. Even if the part model isn’t optimal, I don't have to spend a day or two on part redesign – things like developing parting lines and surface runoff are very easy to get done." Short Learning Curve: "In just a few weeks, even less experienced users have been able to tackle things on their own. The software is intuitive enough that EDM operators with no prior design experience are designing their own electrodes."

Customer Service: "The people at Cimatron really listen to our needs as users, and it shows with every new release of the software."


CimatronE enables us to standardize with a single
package throughout the entire design and production process,
rather than using a different package for each step.



Netherlands, Specialising in transport Tools. Dedicated to the design and manufacture of molds for the plastics industry,
H&D Precision has become one of the most respected moldmakers in The Netherlands since it was founded in 1965.
When H&D set out to refine their manufacturing processes by investing in new CAD/CAM software, they had no idea what improvements lay ahead. In just a few short weeks, however, they realized significant gains in programming speed, reduction in manufacturing time, and accuracy well above expected rates. “Before, programming time took twice as long. Cimatron eliminated hours of manual programming, reducing production time by up to 60%,” comments Ad Prins, H&D Managing Director.
“CimatronE has a very strong NC engine, especially its HSM tools. And it’s easy to learn – takes less time than any other 3D software. Today, when I quote on jobs, I have every confidence that we can program the parts quickly.” H&D needed to refine their manufacturing process to accommodate a growing business, and to win more jobs in a competitive business environment.
CimatronE Master Solution, including MoldDesign and NC, and with such add-ons as QuickElectrode, QuickSplit and QuickCompare was installed. The Results were : 50% reduction in programming time 60% reduction in total production time Ability to manufacture more complex molds wins H&D more jobs 30% projected increase in output for current year Dedicated to the design and manufacture of molds for the plastics industry,

Challenge: Keeping up in a competitive business environment As H&D experienced rapid growth, it needed to update its software to complement its market-proven expertise and increasingly sophisticated machinery. H&D faces pressure to create progressively more complex molds for demanding, industry-leading companies such as Heineken, Motorola, Nokia and Philips. Like most toolmakers, H&D operates in a very competitive environment, where time-to-delivery is crucial, and the race to acquire new customers and jobs is intense. Solution: Increasingly complex demands require better, more sophisticated solutions H&D is a long-time Cimatron customer, so they were already familiar with the capabilities of Cimatron’s Modeling, Drafting, 3-axis Milling, 4-axis Wire EDM, QuickSplit and QuickCompare applications. Recently, the need for continual improvement of process control led the company to upgrade the system with CimatronE MoldDesign and QuickElectrode.
As it turns out, even a loyal Cimatron customer could be surprised by the tremendous benefits still to be gained with CimatronE’s integrative solution and best-in-class mold and electrode design capabilities.

Results: A complete solution for toolmakers – from Quoting to Delivery H&D now uses CimatronE for the entire moldmaking process, from generating quotes to manufacturing and assembling molds. www.hdprecision.nl
