Givat Shmuel, Israel - October 7, 2008 – Cimatron Limited (Nasdaq: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated, CAD/CAM solutions for mold, tool and die makers as well as manufaturers of discrete parts, announced that hundreds of tool makers registered to view an online web seminar (webinar) hosted by American Machinist Magazine and sponsored by Cimatron. The webinar examined best practices for making concurrent engineering a success in today's machine shop. A recording of the webinar is now available on the Cimatron website at http://www.cimatrontech.com/.
The event featured keynote speaker David Lindemann, Senior Application Engineer, Cimatron Technologies, Inc. With more than 20 years of experience in the tooling industry, Lindemann defines true concurrent engineering and reveals proven methods for shortening delivery times.
"People have their own idea about what concurrent engineering is. It is not about throwing all the resources of the shop at the job just to get it done and out the door. The idea is to have the ability to start several different design and manufacturing processes simultaneously, keeping everyone current and working along the same path. When facilitated properly, concurrent engineering can be the key to improving delivery times and bottom-line results," said Lindemann.
Lawrence Haftl, Senior Editor of American Machinist, served as the webinar moderator. "The response to the Cimatron Tool Shop Optimization webinar series has been phenomenal. Web casts are an easy, effective and free way to access educational information that can make a difference in a company's success. We encourage our readers to take part in these sessions," said Haftl.
