GibbsCAM to be Demonstrated at Haas Demo Days

October 3, 2012

MOORPARK, California, October 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Cimatron limited (NASDAQ and TASE: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM
software solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, announced today that
GibbsCAM [http://www.gibbscam.com ](R), its software for programming CNC machine tools,
will be demonstrated as part of Haas Automation’s annual Demo Days, to be held at numerous
Haas Factory Outlets (HFOs), in the U.S. and Canada, on October 10th.

During this year’s Demo Days, Haas features its ST and DS series of multi-task
machines with Y axis and dual spindles, which are available in standard and super-speed
configurations. There will be live demonstrations on the Haas machines, plus educational
seminars on the latest trends for increasing efficiency in discrete-part manufacturing.

As leaders in Multi-Task Machine (MTM) programming, Gibbs will be demonstrating its
GibbsCAM MTM Option which helps customers fully utilize the capabilities of complex MTM
machines, including the Haas ST and DS series machines. GibbsCAM combines ease use with
powerful programming capabilities to help customers program parts quickly, accurately and
efficiently. GibbsCAM also provides the efficiency of a single interface for turning,
milling and non-cutting motion, and further simplifies programming of MTMs with its Synch
Manager, a highly efficient, graphical utility that synchronizes tool groups, optimizes
toolpath, and alerts users to inefficient or conflicting operations.

GibbsCAM MTM post processors, like all GibbsCAM posts processors, are customized to
provide error-free operation for specific machine-control combinations, maximizing
productivity and efficiency.

GibbsCAM MTM is integrated with GibbsCAM Machine Simulation for complete toolpath
verification and simulation to identify and correct tool interference and gouges before
the part gets to the shop floor, preventing costly mistakes.

“As the momentum continues from one of our most successful IMTS shows to date, Gibbs
is excited to participate at Haas demo Days once again,” said Robb Weinstein, Senior Vice
President of Sales and Strategic Planning of Gibbs and Associates. “We will demonstrate
how a combination of GibbsCAM and Haas machines provides an ideal solution for customers
who need to increase output, productivity and profits with single-setup mill-turn
machining. In addition, we will highlight GibbsCAM’s VoluMill HSM option, which fully
supports all Haas mills.”

– Auburn, WA | Selway Machine Tool

– Austin, TX | HFO

– Broken Arrow, OK | Timco Machine Tools

– Colfax, NC | HFO Jeffreys Manufacturing Solutions

– Elk Grove Village, IL | HFO

“In support of Haas Automation, we are presenting our complete solution for Haas CNC
machines, with a special focus on the Haas ST and DS series multi-task turning centers,”
continued Mr. Weinstein. “We are happy to report that we have GibbsCAM post processors and
machine simulation models for these new Haas MTM machines in addition to the many other
Haas machines fully supported by GibbsCAM. In fact, we already have many Haas customers
successfully programming these machines with GibbsCAM for optimal productivity.”
