Taiwan-based group to speed design and production with CimatronE
Givat Shmuel, Israel – March 11, 2012 – Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ and TASE: CIMT) announced today a major deal involving the deployment of CimatronE CAD/CAM software within one of the world's largest manufacturers for the global computing, communication, and consumer electronics (3C) industry. The Taiwanese based group prides itself with serving some of the world's leading and most famous global brand names.
"We held benchmarks against a variety of CAD/CAM solutions, but the customer found CimatronE to be the best in terms of productivity and the quality of the parts produced," said Mrs. Lang Yan, Cimatron's General Manager for Greater China. "The benchmarks covered the design of complex electrodes, dies and fixtures, as well as CNC machining, and in all of these CimatronE excelled."
The Taiwanese group claims the largest share of the magnesium alloy die casing manufacturing market for the global 3C industry, producing parts mainly for notebooks, smart phones and other electronic devices. It also manufactures aluminum, zinc, stainless steel and plastic parts with different forming processes, such as die casting, press, forging, extrusion and injection molds. The group has 40,000 employees across its offices in Taiwan and four large manufacturing facilities in mainland China.
"The Taiwanese group is among several of our larger customers specializing in the design and manufacture of high-end components for the computing, communication and consumer electronic markets," said Mr Ira Bareket, Cimatron's VP Sales and Marketing.
"The group operates in a very competitive and demanding field, characterized by innovative products with relatively short lifecycles that are subject to frequent design changes and exacting standards in terms of quality. Today's consumers demand ever more technologically advanced, sophisticated products that are visually appealing, and it is up to the 3C manufacturers to meet this need by implementing manufacturing technologies capable of supporting the challenging design requirements, while looking for ways to reduce delivery time."
"We make it our business to help customers like the Taiwanese group meet their business goals by providing them with CAD/CAM software that can address their specific manufacturing business needs. We look forward to working in partnership with them and contributing to their continued success."
