3D Systems to Demonstrate GibbsCAM at PMTS



GibbsCAM's UKM technology allows users to simulate any CNC machine, regardless of the number of axes, quickly and accurately.

3D Systems will showcase its GibbsCAM CNC programming software at the Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) in April. 3D Systems' GibbsCAM exhibit and demonstrations will focus on programming, simulation and post-processing for standard and Swiss-style multitasking machines (MTMs), which are increasingly popular in precision and production environments. PMTS will be held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH, April 25-27. 3D Systems will host GibbsCAM demonstrations in booth 804.

"GibbsCAM MTM software provides all the turning and multi-axis milling functions for programming MTMs in a single, shop-friendly interface," said a company spokesperson. The GibbsCAM Machine Simulation module helps ensure accurate, reliable and efficient tool motion before sending CNC programs to the machine. GibbsCAM also features a library of over 1,800 post-processors to support the growing variety of standard and Swiss-style MTMs from nearly 100 manufacturers. Each post-processor has been uniquely developed for a specific combination of MTM machine, machine options, machine control and shop process preference.

"3D Systems' GibbsCAM began programming MTMs when the machines were first introduced," said the spokesperson. "MTMs combine complex lathe and milling functions using dual or multiple spindles, with Y-axis and live tooling on one or more milling heads. The combined operations eliminate handling and set-up errors and reduce overall production time. Equipped with automatic bar feeders and part catchers, MTMs are often operated unattended and lights-out. GibbsCAM's ability to program and post-process for all the functions and auxiliary operations makes it the ideal programming system for MTMs."
