ALGOR, INC. PRODUCES COMPATIBLE DESIGNING TOOLS FOR PARAMETRIC TECHNOLOGIES CAD/CAM SYSTEM

 PITTSBURGH, March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Algor, Inc. announced a new package of design optimization and engineering analysis software that is compatible with Parametric Technology's Pro/ENGINEER mechanical design automation software, thus enabling engineers all over the world to design products more efficiently and quickly.
 The Algor MenuPak for Pro/ENGINEER will allow Pittsburgh-based Algor's design optimization and engineering analysis software to integrate closely with Parametric Technology's popular Pro/ENGINEER software.
 "The integration of two software packages will enable engineers to optimize designs by repeating analysis without leaving the Pro/ENGINEER environment," said Michael Bussler, Algor's president and founder. "They will be able to take the design model created in Pro/ENGINEER directly into the design optimization and analysis stage quickly and economically."
 "A direct interface between Algor's analysis capabilities and the Pro/ENGINEER mechanical design environment will permit our common customers to eliminate the traditional transfer and re-creation of geometry between design and analysis," noted Louis J. Volpe, vice president of marketing and operations for Parametric Technology. "The benefits for customers will include increased accuracy of the analysis model, integration of the software tools they already have, and shortened time to market."
 Parametric Technology's Pro/ENGINEER product family encompasses 25 application-specific modules that address the complete spectrum of mechanical design-through-manufacturing activities. This parametric, feature-based solid modeling technology is used throughout the electronics, aerospace, automotive and consumer products industries by nearly 2,300 companies worldwide.
 Bussler said engineers will be able to use Algor software both to analyze designs as they progress through Pro/ENGINEER and to pull conceptual designs from Algor software into Pro/ENGINEER.
 According to Bussler, Algor software and Pro/ENGINEER will interface at five basic design engineering levels:
 -- NURBS surface
 -- CAD wireframe
 -- Surface mesh
 -- Stereolithography
 -- Tetrahedral mesh
 Algor is now in the process of planning a series of seminars to be held around the world on Algor-Pro/ENGINEER software integration.
 Algor MenuPak for Pro/ENGINEER will fuel the continued rapid corporate growth of Algor. "Algor is already in a hiring mode for sales, technical and business positions to accommodate recent growth and will continue to build its quality employee team," Bussler said.
 Algor develops and markets design optimization and engineering analysis software used by mechanical, structural, electrical, plant, chemical and civil engineers. Algor's software works on DOS (personal computer) and UNIX workstations.
 Algor software is used by engineers in 50 states and more than 60 countries for computerized design optimization and model analysis. It is virtually impossible to spend a day without using a product Algor's software helped to design. Products as diverse as fast food restaurant furniture and food containers, Black and Decker's "Dustbuster," Nautilus exercise equipment and B.F. Goodrich tires were all designed with the help of Algor software.
