MOORPARK, California, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM^® software for programming CNC
machine tools and a Cimatron company, today announced that it will demonstrate
its industry-leading GibbsCAM MTM (multi-task machine) CNC programming
software at the 2013 Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS), to be held at
the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, April 16-18, 2013.
The entire suite of the forthcoming GibbsCAM 2011 software release will also
be available for previewing in the GibbsCAM booth #906.

The GibbsCAM NC programming system for MTM allows manufacturers to safely and
efficiently program the most advanced and sophisticated multi-tasking machines
with multiple turrets and spindles. It fully supports multiple flows and all
of the functions of both standard and Swiss style multi-task machines,
including sub-spindles, live tooling, multiple turrets doing simultaneous
machining, Y-axis on all turrets, thread whirling, B-axis turning, B-axis
milling with Y offset, full 4- and 5-axis simultaneous machining, and
synchronization to optimize turret utilization and cycle times. Furthermore,
Gibbs creates unique post processors for each machine and control combination,
based upon MTM machine parameters and customer preferences, ensuring that each
post processor is optimized for each customer's requirements. Gibbs has
delivered over 1,000 unique post processors for both standard and Swiss style
MTM machines, including the most complex machines from Citizen, Doosan,
Ganesh, Haas, Hanwha, Index-Traub, Mazak, Miyano, Mori Seiki, Nakamura Tome,
Okuma, Star CNC, Tornos, Tsugami, and Willemin- Macodel.

"Collaboration with machine tool builders continues to help us stay on the
leading-edge of Multi-Task Machining CNC programming software," says Robb
Weinstein, Senior Vice President of Sales and Strategic Planning of Gibbs and
Associates. "For the last 10 years Gibbs has been a leader in supporting full
functionality for programming "standard" MTM machines. During the last few
years GibbsCAM has become a recognized leader in programming Swiss style MTM
machines too."

Standard features of GibbsCAM are an easy-to-use and simple-to-navigate user
interface with language and icons familiar to programmers and machinists, the
capability to program the most complex machining processes, and the
flexibility to allow user-preferred approaches to jobs, with options that are
logical to programmers. Additional features of great importance to MTM
programmers are integration of turning, milling and utility operations;
synchronization of turrets and spindles; and a summary of operations.

GibbsCAM integrates turning,milling and utility operations, so the user can
move back and forth from turning to milling to utility operations, at any
time, with simple mouse clicks. Integration enables programming operations in
proper sequence, without leaving the software, so that trouble-shooting a
program is usually nothing more than optimization.

For visualization and toolpath verification,GibbsCAM includes Cut Part
Rendering, which displays material removal whenever the programmer generates a
toolpath, which can be verified in process, allowing the programmer to correct
errors incrementally. The visual state of a part after each operation becomes
stock for the next, as if the part were being machined. A part transferred to
the sub-spindle is displayed with all prior, main-spindle operations
completed, so the material removal display is accurate at every stage. In
addition, GibbsCAM's machine simulation option allows users to simulate both
the part being machined and all motion of the machine's moving components.

Formachinesynchronization and optimization,GibbsCAM MTM's Sync Manager
displays operations being machined on each turret and spindle, thereby
allowing users to interactively optimize machine time. Sync Manager is
especially useful for production runs where program optimization multiplies
savings across thousands of parts. It allows automatic synchronization to
prevent conflicts, and permits interactive wait-code insertion, with automatic
checks and alerts for conflicts. GibbsCAM also accommodates use of machining
patterns or machine modes, by allowing selection of the required utility, also
allowing the programmer to insert a code within a flow, and automatically
synchronizing the program with wait codes at the corresponding locations in
the other flows.

GibbsCAM's Operations Summary displays tool parameters and machining time for
each operation, and a total cycle time, useful in locating lengthy operations
for further optimization. Once programs are optimized, data from the
Operations Summary is often used to estimate jobs, gauge machine and operator
productivity, and even develop time-based incentives for machine operators.

All GibbsCAM software is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 64-bit
version enables users to work with much larger files and to achieve faster and
more accurate results with certain graphic, toolpath generation and post
processing functions. It also provides higher efficiency and accuracy in
evaluating machining operations with toolpath rendering and machine
simulation, and provides full compatibility with 64-bit CAD systems, such as
SolidWorks, Solid Edge and Autodesk Inventor. GibbsCAM is compatible with
Windows 8.
