Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software for programming computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools, announced today that GibbsCAM will be demonstrated as part of Haas Automation's upcoming annual Demo Days to be held November 7th from 10AM – 5PM at various Haas Factory Outlets throughout the United States and Canada.

"We're extremely pleased to participate in the Haas Demo Days," states Bill Gibbs, Gibbs and Associates company founder and president. "GibbsCAM is used daily by Haas application engineers to create CNC programs demonstrating Haas machine tools' capabilities. In addition, Haas also uses GibbsCAM for the day-to-day production of their machine tools."

The one-day Demo Days event will feature the latest affordable, super- high- production CNC machines from Haas, with live demonstrations on every machine in the HFO showrooms. Live demonstrations of the latest version of GibbsCAM will show just how easily it can create efficient CNC programs for Haas machine tools. GibbsCAM TMS (Tombstone Management System) option will be featured along with the latest GibbsCAM modules. GibbsCAM TMS, originally developed to support Haas' internal programming needs for tombstone manufacturing, supports the efficient layout and programming of tombstone-fixtured parts, a popular mode of machining in high-throughput production. Once a program is developed, GibbsCAM Machine Simulation allows complete simulation and verification of machine tool motions, reducing on-machine prove-out and minimizing programming and set-up errors.
