CimatronE Supports 3D Printing Process for Production

April 23, 2013

Leading precision parts manufacturer Sharon Tuvia Ltd. uses CimatronE to support Additive Manufacturing production chain

GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Cimatron Limited [http://www.cimatron.com ] (NASDAQ: CIMT) today announced that its
customer, Sharon Tuvia (1982) Ltd., uses CimatronE in its Additive Manufacturing
production process of making advanced products, targeted primarily at the aerospace,
electro optical and medical industries.

Explains Mr Ronen Sharon, CEO of Sharon Tuvia: “Our Company specializes in
manufacturing high-end metal products, meeting stringent demands of quality, precision,
strength and low weight. Some products simply cannot be produced using traditional
manufacturing methods and require the usage of laser melting additive manufacturing
technology.”

“We receive from our customers CAD files of their products, and use CimatronE CAD
functionality to perform the necessary modifications and preparations of the model in
order to make it ‘printable’. Once 3D Printing of the part is completed, we use CimatronE
NC to finish off the part by drilling holes and threads, and CNC milling of certain faces
of the part to achieve the desired surface finish and accuracy.”

“We are proud to have highly professional customers like Sharon Tuvia, who push
manufacturing capabilities to the limit,” said Danny Haran, CEO of Cimatron.

“It is through such cooperation that our products evolve, and we hope to develop more
capabilities that would further help streamline hybrid production processes. We see great
potential in using multiple manufacturing technologies, such as Additive Manufacturing
(including 3D Printing), alongside more traditional technologies like milling and EDM, for
producing complex and demanding parts,” concluded Mr. Haran.
