MOORPARK, California – Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM software solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, today announced that its GibbsCAM [ http://www.GibbsCAM.com ® software for programming CNC machine tools will be featured at the 2013 Okuma Technology Showcase. The event is a three-day open house at the Okuma and Partners in THINC® Headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina. Okuma will have its latest technology on display, and will demonstrate the versatility and rigidity of many of its machines with live machining, including 5-axis and multi-axis, multi-task machining (MTM). Also, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of its OSP control, Okuma will make available its THINCOSP-P300 control for hands-on trials, and will hold several daily demonstration seminars ("demonars") on various topics revolving around application and implementation of their technology. The 3-day event runs from December 10-12, 2013 at 12428 Sam Neely Road, Charlotte, North Carolina. GibbsCAM ease of use, versatility, efficiency, and range of capabilities will be demonstrated. Visitors should register in advance at http://www.okuma.com/events or at the event page [ http://www.cvent.com/events/anniversary-celebration-december-2013/event-summary-864bb34101514d86a98a71d4a6dc130e.aspx  , which also provides additional information.

Gibbs and Associates, a Cimatron Group subsidiary, is a member of Okuma America's Partners in THINC, a collaborative network of over 40 companies that service the metal-cutting and manufacturing industry with specialized software, equipment, expertise and a commitment to solve problems and increase productivity for end users. With Okuma's open architecture, PC-based THINC-OSP control as its nucleus, Partners in THINC strive to provide the best possible integrated solutions to end users. Gibbs accomplishes this with GibbsCAM, which supports all of Okuma's machine tools, from the simplest 2-axis lathes and 3-axis mills to the most capable multi-tasking lathes and simultaneous 5-axis machining centers. Whether parts have simple geometry needing only 2.5-axis milling or 2-axis turning, or complex geometry requiring use of 5-axis machining or multi-task machining (MTM), GibbsCAM can program them efficiently, verify toolpaths with gouge detection and interference checking, and dynamically simulate toolpaths on virtual machines before accurately post-processing them to generate optimal NC programs. Using the multiple features of GibbsCAM, manufacturers eliminate scrap, reduce cycle times, and maximize efficiency, safety and profits.
