Cimatron Helps US Tooling Industry Qualify Skilled CAD/CAM Workers

NOVI, Michigan, July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT) today announced that it is donating $900,000 worth of its CimatronE integrated tooling and manufacturing  CAD/CAM software to the McCann Technical School in North Adams, Massachusetts.

A recent survey of tooling workshops in North America conducted by Cimatron shows the greatest challenge shops face-above and beyond any other challenge-is finding qualified workers.

According to Bill Gibbs, Cimatron's President North America, the industry as a whole must step up its effort to address this challenge. "This donation continues a long tradition of collaboration with educational institutions such as McCann Technical School, which play a critical role in preparing the next generations of the industry's skilled workforce."

The CimatronE software will be used by students in McCann's Computer Assisted Design (CAD) and Machine Technology programs. "Students will benefit from the ability to learn faster and become more productive working with state-of-the art software," said Thomas Matuszak, McCann's CAM instructor and a former toolmaker. "CimatronE's integrated CAD/CAM software will allow students to experience first-hand how designs transform into actual tools and parts. We plan on using CimatronE as the primary platform for our students from now on."

McCann Tech maintains close relations with area tools shops, among them Marland Mold and Starbase, both CimatronE customers. According to Matuszak, these shops will benefit from the Cimatron training program by having a supply of trained graduates as well as access to offsite training facilities for existing employees.

"We are preparing our students to be significant contributors to the manufacturing economy and provide good middle-class jobs and wages for their families and our community," said Northern Berkshire Vocational Regional School District Superintendent, James Brosnan. "Manufacturing today is all about speed, so training students on software that enables them to be more productive is a real asset to them, to their future employees, and to the industry."
