GibbsCAM® helps simplify complexity. Easily program, simulate, and control any CNC machine—from the simplest 3-axis machine to the most sophisticated multi-task machine. Its single, intuitive user interface (UI), unique UKM (universal kinematic machine) architecture, and proven track record support current and future challenges. GibbsCAM 14 includes new capabilities and enhancements to facilitate manufacturing process automation and support adoption of next-generation manufacturing technologies.
GibbsCAM 14 includes new kinematics support for U-axis turning and swappable heads.
- U-axis: In addition to interpolation turning, eccentric turning, and elliptical turning, GibbsCAM 14 includes new U-axis turning support. The U-axis is an alternate X-axis where a live milling tool spins the cutting edge of a turning-type insert as a kind of super-boring-bar. Use U-axis turning to machine very precise, variable-radius bores and faces on a bulky or heavy part that would be hard to machine on a lathe.
- Swappable heads: GibbsCAM 14 supports swappable heads. Detach and park entire heads and attach a different head. Common on very large machines like twin-column or gantry mills, some machine manufacturers call these automatic attachment changers or automatic head changers.
