TESCO T.S. Selects Tecnomatix eMPower Solutions to Strengthen Product Quality Management and Enhance Customer Satisfaction

HERZLIA, Israel – April 14, 2004 – Tecnomatix Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: TCNO), the driving force in Manufacturing Process Management (MPM), announced today that Turin, Italy-based TESCO T.S., one of Italy’s top automotive production design companies, has signed a contract with Tecnomatix for the implementation of eMPower™ software. TESCO T.S. will use the eM-TolMate product from Tecnomatix to enable a better response to tolerance management demands from the company’s OEM customers. The implementation of eM-TolMate spearheads the creation of a new department at TESCO dedicated exclusively to tolerance management initiatives. TESCO T.S. will use eM-TolMate to help reduce time-to-market and increase product quality. eM-TolMate enables the management of tolerances and design specifications throughout the manufacturing process, which will help TESCO T.S. manage costs and provide maximum value to the company’s customers. eM-TolMate also allows users to predict the effect of tolerances and mating operations on an assembly process and can identify critical features and key characteristics of an assembly – such as the gap between a door and the fender of a car, or the clearance between the removable hard disk and the bay in a portable PC. "Using eM-TolMate will increase our customer satisfaction capabilities by enabling us to foresee potential manufacturing glitches and intercept them early," said Sergio Cattaneo, CEO of TESCO T.S. "We firmly believe in the manufacturing solution that eM-TolMate offers and look forward to the time and cost savings that will ultimately come with it." "As we continue to work with companies like TESCO T.S., we see eMPower solutions making the jobs of manufacturing engineers easier every day," said Jaron Lotan, president and CEO of Tecnomatix Technologies. "This is part of our mission and overall strategy – to provide the tools that will not only make manufacturing more simple, but also to make the entire process more streamlined, complete and flawless."
