AMADA CUTTING TECHNOLOGIES UNVEILS NEW WEB SITE

LA MIRADA, CA, Dec. 20, 1999 -- Amada Cutting Technologies, Inc. (ACT) has introduced its new Web site - http://www.actengineering.com. Toshi Ichimura, President, ACT, made the announcement.

The new ACT Web site offers a wealth of information. In addition to the Home Page, there are navigable sections for ACT News, Online Order, Register, and Warranty. A Specifications feature offers a comprehensive pull down menu with detailed information on every Amada bandsaw and blade and informative schematics.

"Scroll down to the HA500, for example, and you get a complete list of features and statistics - bundle size, feeding length, allowable load, blade size, blade twist angle, machine height, and more," Ichimura said. "Each capsule description of the various Amada blades provides current specifications and application illustrations."

Register online and you can access the Members Only area of the Web site, which has navigable sections entitled Cut Chart, Technical Tips, Q&A and Machine Service Manuals.

The most innovative and interactive feature is the Virtual Test Cut room. It utilizes online 3D and streaming audio and video technology (you'll need to register to access this part of the site and have Shockwave, which you can download for free from the ACT site) to experience using the CTB-400. Viewers can select the material, the material size, the blade and shape, set the parameters and sit back and watch the program. The sound effects emulate a CTB-400 in operation. The screen also shows the estimated time to cut the material, cut rate, area to be cut, average blade life, blade cost and unit cost/cut.

The Web site also features an extensive Cut Chart. Once you have selected the material (ranging from aluminum alloys to carbon steels to high speed tool steels), the material size and blade, the Cut Chart instantly calculates cutting rates and times, and determines how cost-effective your application may be, depending upon the variables you select.

Amada Cutting Technologies, Inc. (ACT), established in 1987, is located in La Mirada, Calif., about 25 miles south of Los Angeles. ACT is part of the Amada Group, founded in 1946. ACT sells and distributes bandsaw machines, bi-metal bandsaw blades and parts to manufacturing facilities, steel service centers, forges and foundries, machine shops and other metal-related industries throughout North America. For more information on the Web site, call Amada Cutting Technologies, Inc. at (714) 670-1704.
