MOORPARK, California, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM^® software for programming CNC
machine tools and a Cimatron company, today announced its participation at
HaasTec 2013, the Haas Open House, in support of machine-tool builder Haas
Automation. GibbsCAM supports the entire line of Haas vertical and horizontal
CNC machining centers, lathes, multi-task machines, 5-axis rotary tables and
indexers, and the new UMC 750 5-axis vertical machining center to be featured
at the event. Easy-to-use CNC programming features include programming for
5-axis simultaneous machining, tombstone management, multi-task machining
(MTM), toolpath verification, machine simulation and post processors. Haas
will hold the HaasTec 2013 Open House at its manufacturing and headquarters
facility at 2800 Sturgis Road, in Oxnard, California. The event will run
daily, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., local time, from April 9-12, 2013.

"HaasTec is a great opportunity to display Haas and Gibbs technology in
action," said Bill Gibbs, Gibbs and Associates company founder and president.
"We believe that GibbsCAM is the best software for programming multi-axis
machines, and we enjoy demonstrating our leadership in MTM and other
categories, with easy-to-learn, easy-to-use software that takes advantage of
the technology that a machine offers. GibbsCAM supports the new Haas UMC 750
5-axis VMC, and their latest and most capable MTM, the DS-30SSY, which is a
dual-spindle, single-turret, Y-axis machine with live tooling. We look forward
to demonstrating the superiority of GibbsCAM to Haas customers, and doing it
better and faster to maximize profitability from their CNCs."

James Moore, Gibbs distribution manager, will deliver a presentation titled
"Ultra-High Performance Toolpaths on Haas CNC Machines," on Thursday, April
11, at 1:00 p.m., discussing the title topic and the many advantages of using
GibbsCAM. After the presentation, he will be available to answer questions
from Haas customers. In addition, all of the GibbsCAM features that support
Haas machine tools will be available for demonstration at the Open House,
where guests can visit with Gibbs and with vendors of tooling and probing
equipment.

The latest Haas CNC technology will be on live display, with eighteen machines
cutting metal. Haas will also provide guided tours of its 1,000,000
square-foot manufacturing and assembly facility, so that visitors can see, on
the production floor and from above it, how and where Haas machines are built.
After the guided tours, Haas will serve a barbecue lunch "under the big tent."
Haas encourages advance registration, and provides additional information at
its site, together with a link to a registration form.
