Magics Tooling Expert to be exhibited at IMTS 2002 Booth D4140

Ann Arbor, Michigan, August 29th, 2002 - From September 4 until September
11, Materialise will exhibit at the International Manufacturing Technology
Show (IMTS), the greatest show in manufacturing in the United States. At
IMTS, Materialise will introduce for the first time on an exhibition in the
USA its innovative solution for mold and tool quotation, Magics Tooling
Expert. Systematic, Automated, Competitive: Magics Tooling Expert helps
toolmakers win more business.

Magics Tooling Expert captures the tool construction and pricing approach of
your company, and learns from it to automate the quotation process. Designed
to meet the demands of toolmakers in today's competitive and fast-paced
tooling market, Magics Tooling Expert combines speed and ease-of-use.

The highly advanced and automatic functions of Magics Tooling Expert reduce
the effort of quoting tools to a minimum.

Quote is ready in only three steps!

        Step 1. The analysis tools - focusing on undercuts, parting line
definition, wall thickness, draft and design study - give insight into the
complexity and cost of tool design and production. Magics Tooling Expert
visualizes problem areas automatically, enabling you to anticipate
difficulties before designing the tool. Unpleasant - and costly - surprises
during actual tool production are thus eliminated!


        Step 2. In the second step, the information and insight gained in
the analysis phase combine with tool making knowledge to assess tool
complexity and size. Magics Tooling Expert automatically calculates costs,
providing you with an effective and systematic means for price estimation
with consistent results.


        Step 3. Well-documented, customized quotes are generated


Magics Tooling Expert enables you to offer your customers convincing,
detailed and well-documented quotes, which are ideal to illustrate and
explain your proposed tooling solution and pricing.

Magics Tooling:

Another innovative software to be demonstrated at the exhibition. Magics
Tooling automates the creation of parting planes, inserts and electrodes
allowing a complete tool design to be completed in only a fraction of the
time when compared to traditional CAD software. Magics Tooling has been
developed by injection mold toolmakers - resulting in an easy-to-use, cost
effective solution to the problems of tool design.
