Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM®, software for programming CNC machine tools, announced today that they will be participating in the 2007 MAG Fadal Open House held November 15th & 16th, at Fadal Machining Centers' offices in Chatsworth, CA. This event will be the domestic introduction of Gibbs SFP on the new Infimatic Freedom NC200™ CNC being used with a variety of MAG Fadal machine tools. Gibbs SFP will be bundled with these MAG Fadal machine tools allowing users to become productive more rapidly, realizing a faster return on their investment. During the Open House Gibbs will also be presenting a seminar on new developments in CAD/CAM software.

The trio of Gibbs SFP, Infimatic CNC and MAG Fadal had its international introduction at EMO 2007, held in Hannover, Germany earlier this year. There, the joint roll-out received considerable attention from industry press and show attendees. At EMO, Gibbs SFP was demonstrated both on free-standing Infimatic controls in addition to MAG Fadal VMC 4020 FX and MAG Fadal VMC 2216 FX vertical machining centers equipped with Infimatic Freedom NC200™ CNC controllers. MAG Fadal is the first machine builder to adopt the new Infimatic CNC.

"We're excited to be participating at the 2007 Fadal Open House. Gibbs has had a long standing working relationship with MAG Fadal (Fadal Machining Centers)," states Robb Weinstein, Gibbs' Senior VP of Sales and Strategic Planning. "Gibbs is extremely pleased that MAG Fadal has elected to offer the new Infimatic NC200™ on a variety of popular vertical machining center models "This provides our mutual customers with a smooth transition path from the legacy Fadal 32MP and 104D controls, which were both bundled with Gibbs SFP."

In addition to Gibbs SFP, the latest version of GibbsCAM will also be demonstrated at the MAG Fadal Open House. A key advantage of Gibbs SFP is its complete compatibility with the GibbsCAM product line. Programs developed offline using GibbsCAM can be directly transferred to Gibbs SFP resident on the NC200™ for review and easy modification. Changes made on the Infimatic Freedom NC200™ using Gibbs SFP can then be transferred back to GibbsCAM and referenced as shop-proven processes.
