Hundreds of Tool Makers Attended Online Seminar Hosted by Cimatron and MetalForming Magazine with a Case Study Presentation by Norco Industries; Recording Now Available
Novi, MI – January 7, 2009 – Hundreds of tool and die makers attended an online web seminar (webinar) hosted by MetalForming Magazine and sponsored by Cimatron.
In the first part of the webinar, David Lindemann of Cimatron Technologies Inc. walked the audience through a detailed explanation of best practices in integrating die design and manufacturing processes.
A case study presentation by Mark Modglin of Norco Industries demonstrated how the integration of these processes can help tool and die makers improve productivity, responsiveness, and ultimately the company's bottom-line results.
“Having an integrated system allows all the departments to see the same data, which has greatly improved our communication and workflow,” said Modglin. “We have been able to cut time out of design, build, and assembly for every project we have been working on. We have also seen great improvement in the handling of engineering change orders due to the parametric features of the Cimatron software.”
The webinar was moderated by Brad Kuvin, Editor of MetalForming Magazine. “I believe this session provided the audience with some great ideas of what can be achieved by integrating the design and manufacturing processes,” said Kuvin. “The fact that this large number of die makers took the time out of their work day during this busy time of the year to attend this webinar speaks for the urgency to improve operational efficiency that is felt in the industry.”
