Givat Shmuel, Israel - April 30, 2007 - Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT) announced that visitors to the upcoming BlechExpo trade fair in Germany will be able to see the CimatronE DieDesign, which was officially released several months ago. Cimatron's die design application helps produce quality designs in record time, enabling die makers to win more business and carry out more profitable projects.
"Thanks to DieDesign, we are able to win more business," said Thorsten Franke, project manager at Ernst Keller GmbH in Arnsberg, Germany. "Since we can forecast more accurately, we are able to offer our tools at the right price. Today, we are establishing a quotation at an average of only one hour including the blanking, strip layout, and material utilization. Prior to DieDesign, we needed six hours for this kind of work."
The new application is rich with die-specific functions, so designers no longer need to spend valuable time attempting to construct the unique features of a die using general-purpose CAD systems.
"From the very first time we saw DieDesign application, we realized it was the right tool to make us work more effectively," added Franke. "The blanking is absolutely accurate and detailed. In the past, we usually had to perform several modifications on the ready-produced tool or on the laser cutting in order to accomplish a correct part. Since using DieDesign, the scope of modifications in these phases has been considerably reduced."
The DieDesign application is tightly integrated with other parts of the CimatronE CAD/CAM product suite, streamlining the entire product cycle from quoting to manufacturing and the delivery of a complete die tool. More information about DieDesign is available on Cimatron's website at http://www.cimatron.com/.
Visitors to BlechExpo can view demonstrations of the DieDesign application and the entire CimatronE product suite at Cimatron's booth number 5423, located in hall 5. With nearly 650 exhibitors and more than 14,000 expected visitors, BlechExpo is considered one of the world's premier events for sheet metal processing. This year's fair (June 13-16) will take place for the first time at the new convention center in Stuttgart, Germany.
