The Cimquest Manufacturing Lab

By |2018-01-29T08:32:52+00:00January 29th, 2018|Categories: News / Promos, Training|0 Comments

Cimquest was founded in 1990 as a reseller of CAM & CAD software and soon became a premier training facility. At times we heard our customers struggle with applying new tooling and equipment with the latest Mastercam toolpaths and we wanted to address this issues. We began to build partnerships with tooling, fixturing, and machine tool companies to teach how all these components work together. Shortly after these partnerships started the vision of the lab began. We wanted to develop a lab that is a collaboration of our partners who teach the applications of the latest manufacturing technology – a lab with a team of instructors made up of experienced machinists, tool and mold makers, and engineers. When these folks are not teaching or solving customers problems, they use this lab to learn new tool paths, equipment, or processes to pass that knowledge on. The Cimquest manufacturing lab has CNC machines and access to the latest in 3D printing to enable us to show and prove the synergy between these technologies. It is a hub for teaching industry, college, and trade schools students, the next level of advanced manufacturing. This lab will fuse subtractive and additive manufacturing together for a [...]

New Dynamic High-Efficiency Milling Training

By |2018-01-15T08:20:24+00:00April 3rd, 2017|Categories: Training|0 Comments

The next Cimquest Dynamic High-Efficiency Milling course is set to run April 11-13, 2017 at HFO Pittsburgh, Warrendale PA. If you are looking for more ways to stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing manufacturing environment it is imperative that you stay on top of new and emerging technologies. This new Manufacturing Training series will take you to the next level and improve your machining production. This training course will teach you how to implement, evaluate, and select components for high-efficiency milling to get shorter cycle times, reduce tool wear, and extend machine life. You will learn guidelines to selecting key components with hands-on interactions to build your ability in identifying and creating an efficient milling process. A couple of comments from recent class participants . . .  "Content and information exceeded my expectations" - Rich Marchese, HEM class attendee "I would recommend this class to others; it really makes you think of every aspect of the process, not just the programming side of it. I didn't think of work holding and tool holding before or if the machine could even handle these specific operations." - David Adams, HEM class attendee
