GibbsCAM to be Demonstrated at Haas Demo Days

June 11, 2009

MOORPARK, California, June 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Cimatron Limited
(NASDAQ: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for the
toolmaking and manufacturing industries, announced that GibbsCAM, its
software for programming CNC machine tools, will be demonstrated as part of
Haas Automation’s upcoming annual Demo Days to be held June 17, from 10AM to
5PM
, at various Haas Factory Outlets (HFO) throughout the United States and
Canada.

“Participation in the Haas Demo Days is a great opportunity to
demonstrate the extensive new features of GibbsCAM,” states Bill Gibbs, Gibbs
and Associates company founder and president. “While a good percentage of our
customers use GibbsCAM to generate CNC programs to drive Haas machine tools,
Haas uses it in daily machine-tool production. Furthermore, Haas application
engineers use GibbsCAM to demonstrate the wide capabilities of their machine
tools.”

The one-day Demo Days events will feature the latest affordable,
super-high-production CNC machines from Haas, with live demonstrations on
every machine in the HFO showrooms. Live demonstrations of the latest
GibbsCAM, version 9.3, will show how easily it creates efficient CNC programs
for Haas machine tools. The GibbsCAM Advanced 3D High Speed Machining (HSM)
and 5-Axis modules will be featured, together with postprocessors that
support every Haas machine tool made. The other GibbsCAM modules will also be
available for demonstration, including GibbsCAM TMS (Tombstone Management
System), which was originally developed to support Haas’ internal tombstone
programming with efficient layout and programming of tombstone-fixtured parts.

The Advanced 3D HSM module comprises multiple machining methods
specifically developed for multi-surface hard milling and high speed
machining in SolidSurfacer(R) to provide high quality surface finishes that
reduce or eliminate polishing. The various machining styles are useful for
multiple applications and offer smooth entries, exits and cutting motions,
with steep or shallow angle limits, rest passes, tool-holder collision
checking, and options to change cutting style. These styles are Contour,
Constant Step Over Cut, Flats Cut, Lace Cut, Intersections, Automatic Core
Detection, and Improved Pocketing.

The GibbsCAM 5-axis Module provides multi-surface 5-axis roughing and
finishing; multi-surface, 5-axis, flow-line machining; surface edge. 5-axis
swarf cutting (typically for trimming vacuum-formed parts); adaptable
interface, based upon part-type strategy, shows only what is needed; advanced
gouge checking to ensure safe cuts even in most complex operations; complete
control of entry, exit, cut-to-cut and between-cut motion; 5-axis depth cuts
machining; and integration with the GibbsCAM Machine Simulation module for
complete toolpath verification and simulation of all the machine’s moving
components. Version 9.3, adds automatic tilting and various tilting options,
plus many new enhancements to provide greater flexibility and productivity
for using multi-axis machines.
