Revware Purchases Immersion MicroScribe Division

PRESS RELEASE – Raleigh, NC, July 2, 2009 – Revware, Inc., the leading developer of CAD-Driven Reverse Engineering software and provider of touch and laser modeling solutions to manufactures and designers, announces its purchase of the MicroScribe® business from Immersion Corporation (NASDAQ:IMMR).

The purchase is part of Revware’s strategic initiative to develop a broader catalog of modeling productivity tools for designers and manufacturers.  The MicroScribe family of products is used to capture three-dimensional location and direction measurements in real time from parts and volumes.  Combined with Revware’s RevWorks® and other available software packages, the MicroScribe digitizer is used for a wide variety of measurement tasks that result in the creation of computer models, collection of validation data, determination of precise angles, and many other physical measurements.  MicroScribe digitizers are available in several combinations of working volumes, degrees of freedom, and precisions to meet the needs of a broad range of customers.

MicroScribe digitizers improve the speed and accuracy with which the users collect physical job data, allowing them to more quickly model parts and make precise alignments thereby saving time and money.  Customers include companies sized from Fortune 500 and Global 500 to small design offices and machine shops, government agencies, and universities in the U.S., Europe, Asia, Middle East, and South America.

Revware, one of the first providers of software solutions for the MicroScribe when it was first introduced, has many years of experience working with the product.  Tom Welsh, President of Revware, Inc., comments, “We are thrilled to be acquiring this incredible productivity tool and look forward to furthering its evolution.  The MicroScribe has captivated our imagination from its inception and we are pleased to have this opportunity to mold its future.”  The MicroScribe continues to fill a unique place in the contact digitizing marketplace as a cost-effective desktop solution. The product is scheduled to restart shortly and efforts are underway to reactivate the resale channel.
