MOORPARK, California, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT) announced today that Gibbs and Associates,
developer of GibbsCAM^® software for programming CNC machine tools and a
Cimatron company, has developed a partnership with Sandvik Coromant to
integrate the Adveon™ Tool Library application. Adveon has been developed in
compliance with ISO 13399, which defines cutting tool data representation and
exchange. ISO 13399 allows the accurate exchange of tooling data among
computer aided applications that support and adhere to the standard, including
CAD, CAM, CAE, PDM, PLM and tool management systems. Gibbs and Associates will
begin marketing Adveon integrated with GibbsCAM immediately, and begin
shipping it with the GibbsCAM 2015 release. Adveon will initially support
milling tools, and incorporate turning tools when the data becomes available.
GibbsCAM users with current software maintenance will receive Adveon free of
charge. Gibbs will demonstrate Adveon at IMTS 2014, September 8-13, at
McCormick Place in Chicago, Booth E-3310.

Adveon for GibbsCAM allows users to develop their own tool library, selecting
from tools they use daily. While having all tooling data at users' fingertips
provides them a greater understanding of available tooling choices, having an
overview of available tooling provides them flexibility in selecting and
maintaining the assortment of tools in the library. The ISO 13399 cutting tool
data representation and exchange standard lets GibbsCAM users work with tools
from any supplier and assures accuracy of geometric information. Users can
quickly and easily create tool assemblies, see immediate representations in 2D
and 3D, and use them for simulation with GibbsCAM's integrated Cut Part
Rendering and Machine Simulation.

The Adveon Tool Library provides three inter-related functions. First, a
specially formatted library (based upon ISO 13319) allows customers to
download or enter data for tooling items, including tool holders, adapters,
cutting tools and inserts, to create a master catalog. A second function
enables users to collect and categorize the various tooling items they use,
while the third allows them to quickly and easily create tool assemblies from
these components. Applications which support the standard, can then access the
cutting tool assemblies without further searching or definition.

"We applaud Sandvik's leadership and initiative in implementing ISO 13399 with
Adveon, and look forward to our partnership in delivering a great time-saving
solution to manufacturers everywhere," said Robb Weinstein, Senior Vice
President of Sales and Strategic Planning of Gibbs and Associates. "Adveon is
a perfect fit with GibbsCAM, which has the inherent ability to associate
specific tools with machining processes and the parts and part features the
tools cut, to facilitate fast CNC programming and even faster engineering
changes."
