Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM software for programming CNC machine tools and a Cimatron company, announced today that GibbsCAM will be demonstrated as part of Haas Automation’s annual Demo Days, to be held at numerous Haas Factory Outlets (HFOs), in the U.S. and Canada, on October 10th.
During this year’s Demo Days, Haas features its ST and DS series of multi-task machines with Y axis and dual spindles, which are available in standard and super-speed configurations. There will be live demonstrations on the Haas machines, plus educational seminars on the latest trends for increasing efficiency in discrete-part manufacturing.
As leaders in Multi-Task Machine (MTM) programming, Gibbs will be demonstrating its GibbsCAM MTM Option which helps customers fully utilize the capabilities of complex MTM machines, including the Haas ST and DS series machines. GibbsCAM combines ease use with powerful programming capabilities to help customers program parts quickly, accurately and efficiently. GibbsCAM also provides the efficiency of a single interface for turning, milling and non-cutting motion, and further simplifies programming of MTMs with its Synch Manager, a highly efficient, graphical utility that synchronizes tool groups, optimizes toolpath, and alerts users to inefficient or conflicting operations.
GibbsCAM MTM post processors, like all GibbsCAM posts processors, are customized to provide error-free operation for specific machine-control combinations, maximizing productivity and efficiency.
GibbsCAM MTM is integrated with GibbsCAM Machine Simulation for complete toolpath verification and simulation to identify and correct tool interference and gouges before the part gets to the shop floor, preventing costly mistakes.
“As the momentum continues from one of our most successful IMTS shows to date, Gibbs is excited to participate at Haas demo Days once again,” said Robb Weinstein, Senior Vice President of Sales and Strategic Planning of Gibbs and Associates. “We will demonstrate how a combination of GibbsCAM and Haas machines provides an ideal solution for customers who need to increase output, productivity and profits with single-setup mill-turn machining. In addition, we will highlight GibbsCAM’s VoluMill HSM option, which fully supports all Haas mills.”
Among the various HFOs featuring GibbsCAM are the following:
“In support of Haas Automation, we are presenting our complete solution for Haas CNC machines, with a special focus on the Haas ST and DS series multi-task turning centers,” continued Mr. Weinstein. “We are happy to report that we have GibbsCAM post processors and machine simulation models for these new Haas MTM machines in addition to the many other Haas machines fully supported by GibbsCAM. In fact, we already have many Haas customers successfully programming these machines with GibbsCAM for optimal productivity.”
