Recently released GibbsCAM 2016 to be featured at IMTS, together with 3D Systems’ comprehensive line of 3D products and services
MOORPARK, CA – June 1, 2016 – 3D Systems, developer of GibbsCAM® software for programming CNC machine tools, announced today that it will be demonstrating the next generation of its Computer-Aided-Manufacturing software, GibbsCAM 2016, at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), September 12-17, 2016, at McCormick Place, Chicago, in Booth # E-3310. IMTS is an ideal opportunity to check out the level of ease and sophistication that GibbsCAM® 2016 software brings to production machining. Building on its revolutionary UKM (Universal Kinematic Machine) technology, GibbsCAM 2016 delivers increased efficiency, accelerated programming speed, and enhanced visualization and accuracy for CNC machine programming.
New features and functions for GibbsCAM 2016 highlighted at IMTS include:
- Enhanced thread milling, including support for multi-point tools, tapered threads for both single- and multi-point tools, and improved simulation.
- The latest VoluMill™ technology, providing new toolpath strategies to optimize high speed roughing of large pockets and slots, open face milling strategies that can decrease cutting time by up to 60%, and Technology Expert integration for ready access to optimal speeds and feeds.
- New oriented turning capabilities, giving users added control in how tools interact with parts. From using a single tool at multiple B orientations to reorienting tool groups for use on a different spindle to full support of Flash Tooling for multiple-orientation turning tools, GibbsCAM 2016 delivers increased flexibility and control to CNC programmers.
- Added toolpath strategies for 5-axis milling, enabling users to define toolpath direction using the natural flow of a surface with the new Flowline option. Toolpaths can also now be extended in width as well as length. Additional enhancements include improved 5-axis drilling, multi-stepped pocket roughing and new gouge checking strategies.
GibbsCAM 2016, highlighted at IMTS, includes new Oriented Turning capabilities to program complex MTM machines that utilize redundant axis for turning definition.
Recognized for its ease of use, GibbsCAM was designed to help users eliminate scrap and reduce cycle times. Close work in tandem with shop owners and shop floor employees crystalized the evolving needs and necessities for helping our customers maximize efficiency, safety and profitability while giving them the freedom to create without limitations and deliver significantly better products than ever before.
GibbsCAM 2016 together with 3D Systems’ full range of end to end software solutions for manufacturing covering SCAN-DESIGN-PRINT-MANUFACTURE-INSPECT can be seen in booth E-3310 and at the 3D Systems booth highlighting 3D Printing technologies at South Building - S-9119.
