Givat Shmuel, Israel – March 17, 2009 – Cimatron Limited (Nasdaq: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for mold, tool and die makers as well as manufacturers of discrete parts, announced that it will collaborate with customers as well as machine tool builders at Italy's Eurostampi trade show on March 19th 2009 to display proven results.
CimatronE will be featured at the stalls of Drilling and Co. (hall 5, stall H53), at Cisastampi Moldmakers (hall 6, stall K42) and at Makino (hall 6, stall C5). Cimatron's Italian subsidiary Microsystem will be showcasing the latest versions of CimatronE and GibbsCAM in hall 6, stall K32.
Drilling and Co. specialize in deep "gun drilling" for use in plates and molds. At the tradeshow they will be showing a simulation of their 5/7 IMSA machine which has been programmed using CimatronE Automated Drill. Automated Drill is CimatronE's advanced drill programming application which reduces drill programming time by up to 80%. It supports 2.5-5-axis drilling as well as gun drilling.
Cisastampi specialize in the engineering and production of parts with a high technological content and complex geometry in diverse sectors such as plumbing, heating, industrial wiring, hardware, pressurized components and small, high precision technical components. Cisastampi will display various parts they have designed and machined using CimatronE in their stall and Microsystem will also display one such mold in the CimatronE booth.
Makino, a Machine Tool Builder with whom Cimatron has maintained close ties in Italy, will display a simulation of the cutting of a titanium gear leaver for the motorcycle industry programmed by Cimatron. The part will be cut at high speed on the Makino D500 5-Axis vertical machining center live at the trade show.
"We are encouraged that despite the current situation, this tradeshow is set to be very busy and vibrant," said Enrico Gardini, managing director of Microsytem. "We are nurturing partnerships with customers and machine tool builders that are tighter than ever and our message is clear: Technology must be seen as a means to the end of the crisis because technology promotes efficiency. The market is nervous and when shops have jobs, they have to deliver them fast. As a provider of technology, we deliver a remedy to the problem."
New Versions of GibbsCAM, which was released last year and CimatronE, which will be released later this year, will be displayed at Microsystem's stall.

It will take place from March 19th to 21st 2009 at the Parma Fairground along with other tradeshows relevant to the machining industry including MEC SPE, specialized mechanic expositions, SubFornitura, the exhibition of subcontracted industrial processing and more.
