Dutch Electronics Manufacturer Liad Implementing Paperless Manufacturing Production and Support System Based on eMPower from Tecnomatix

HERZLIA, Israel – February 23, 2005 – Tecnomatix Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: TCNO), the driving force in manufacturing process management (MPM), today announced that Dutch Box Build provider Liad Electronics Breda BV will implement a paperless manufacturing production and support system based on eMPower™ solutions from Tecnomatix. The most recent purchase of eMPower software and services is valued at more than US$170,000, and includes a year-long services and maintenance contract. eM-Assembly Expert serves as the backbone for the project, allowing engineers to create programs and documentation for all surface mount technology (SMT) and automated optical inspection systems.

Liad Electronics Breda BV, a manufacturer of electronics boards and products for many Benelux companies, is also using eM-Execution to achieve total visibility of the system, which is integrated with their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. eM-Execution is the leading PCB Production Management system for business decision making. It reduces the complexity of managing and presenting critical production information to help manufacturers better serve customers and meet regulatory demands. And by doing so, it creates new opportunities to realize more profit from manufacturing operations.

A completely integrated, single solution for assembly and test programming, documentation creation and parametric optimization, eM-Assembly Expert also integrates with an exclusive vendor part library, providing the only complete electronics New Product Introduction (NPI) solution on the market.

“We expect to see a significant decrease in many of our engineering costs, thanks to our implementation of Tecnomatix eMPower solutions,” said Ad Meesters, director, Liad Electronics Breda BV. “Our new paperless production system should also allow us to get our customers’ products to market more quickly. Additionally, the visibility and seamless ERP links we have been able to achieve will help ensure we’re making fully informed decisions about manufacturing. We are very pleased with how things are progressing so far, and are looking at additional automation projects in the future that could incorporate eMPower solutions.”

“Liad Electronics Breda BV is able to stay several steps ahead of its competition in part because of its strong emphasis on manufacturing process management across the entire company,” said Jaron Lotan, president and chief executive officer, Tecnomatix Technologies. “Their broad deployment of eMPower solutions demonstrates a commitment to the future of electronics manufacturing, and Tecnomatix is pleased to be working closely with Liad on these crucial initiatives.”
