CAM for Multi-Task Machining

Gibbs and Associates (Moorpark, CA) will demonstrate forthcoming features of GibbsCAM MTM (multi-task machining) at IMTS.

Gibbs and Associates (Moorpark, CA) will demonstrate forthcoming features of GibbsCAM MTM (multi-task machining) at IMTS. New features include:

  • Highly Extended, Generalized MTM, with Improved Postprocessor Engine: No longer based upon or restricted to lathe operations, MTM has been redesigned to reduce the time and effort required to develop postprocessors, generate CNC programs and simulate machine motion. With its redesign, the software will program more complex machines and give users greater control of postprocessor creation, reducing or eliminating the need for highly customized postprocessors.

  • Extended Swiss-style Machine Support: Improved and extended support for thread whirling will be included in the new, generalized MTM. Machine Manager will replace the current MDD (machine definition) Editor to support programming and synchronization for machines with more than three flows.

  • Swiss-style Machine Simulation: GibbsCAM Machine Simulation moves beyond 5-axis, to include other multi-axis configurations, including multi-axis, multi-flow Swiss-style machines. Machine Simulation will now provide users off-line testing and prove-out for the most complex machines.
