MOORPARK, California, December 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 todaythat its subsidiary, Gibbs and Associates, has been selected
for membership in Okuma America's Partners in THINC.

THINC is 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.

"We are pleased to be recognized for our expertise in providing a highly
efficient, productive, and easy-to-use CAM system to industry, and for the
service and support we provide our customers," said Bill Gibbs, founder and
president of Gibbs and Associates. "We have been supporting Okuma machinery
for over thirty years, and the THINC-OSP controls since their introduction in
2004. We look forward to participating in the delivery of integrated solutions
that help manufacturers increase efficiency and profitability with the latest
and most sophisticated machine tools from Okuma."

GibbsCAM is well known in the industry for its easy-to-use graphic interface,
and its extensive capabilities, providing a modular solution for programming
all Okuma machine tools, from their 3-axis mills and 2-axis lathes, to their
multi-axis and multi-task machines (MTMs). GibbsCAM is especially renowned
for its support of Okuma MTMs, because it programs turning and milling
operations from a single interface, and provides error-free postprocessing
that results in machine-ready programs that require no editing. These
capabilities extend to all of Okuma's machine tools. With a library of over
11,000 postprocessors, including over 1,000 for MTM machines, Gibbs has many
postprocessors for Okuma CNCs, including the MU, Millac, Multus and Macturn
series.

Mr. Gibbs was recently the speaker at the Okuma "Go Beyond Productivity to
Profitability" open house, in Houston, Texas, on November 15, where
machine-tool distributor Hartwig used GibbsCAM to program all of the Okuma
machine tools on display and in operation, including four 4-axis,
double-turret vertical and horizontal lathes, three 4-axis vertical and
horizontal mills, plus the Okuma LB3000 EX, a double spindle, single turret,
Y-axis lathe, and the MULTUS B400, a multi-function horizontal lathe with
B-axis head.
