Preview Technology Saves Over 75% Process Planning Time!

Givat Shmuel, Israel, March 11, 2003 - Cimatron Ltd., (NASDAQ: CIMT) a leading developer of CAD/CAM solutions for the tooling industry, today announced the release of QuickNC 3.1, the company's new NC solution for the tooling industry. With this release, Cimatron has added new enhancements to its superior NC software package. These include High-Speed Machining, and improvements in Flexibility, Finish Quality, and Machining Efficiency. QuickNC 3.1 is a result of close collaboration with customers at several sites around the world, all of whom use the software on a daily basis. This release of QuickNC will help maintain Cimatron's leading market position and provide NC customers with the power and proficiency they need to stay well ahead of the competition.

QuickNC is Cimatron's revolutionary CAM package with cutting-edge preview technology that saves over 75% in tool manufacturing process planning time. The software allows NC operators to calculate toolpaths just once, minimizing the need for a simulator. This results in final cutting strategy decisions made before actual toolpath calculation, while intelligent decision-making is based on graphical in-process feedback. The software enables live communcation via the Internet, where both parties can operate and discuss the full NC process in real-time. QuickNC is intuitive and simple, with only a minimum number of required parameters needed to define the NC process, and full training can be completed in a few hours.

Version highlights include: full support of High-Speed Machining; automatic selection of optimal toolpath strategies supported by Knowledge of Stock Remaining; improved Finish Quality confirmed by high-standard cutting tests; greater machining efficiency achieved by smart sequence of rest milling operations, and advanced users are given more options and more control of cutting parameters.
