Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM® software for maximizing programming efficiency of CNC machine tools and a Cimatron company, announced today that it will demonstrate its complete GibbsCAM MTM (multi-task machining) solutions at EMO, the world's largest trade show dedicated to metalworking equipment and productivity, this year held in Milan, Italy, from October 5-10, 2009. GibbsCAM, will be showcased in Cimatron Group's booth (Hall 9, Booths A10 and A12).

MTM machining solutions are expected to generate the most interest at this year's EMO due to the productivity improvements gained by machines able to execute multiple operations in a single set-up on one CNC machine and the ability to optimize profitability during the current worldwide recession. The GibbsCAM solutions will also be demonstrated at exhibits of several machine tool partners who build both "standard" and Swiss style MTM machines.

GibbsCAM MTM software fully supports all the functions available on standard multi-task machines and Swiss style machines, including subspindles, live tooling, Y-axis on all turrets, multiple turrets doing simultaneous machining, synchronization to optimize turret utilization and cycle times, and full 4- and 5-axis simultaneous machining, through its standard programming features and over 750 MTM postprocessors. GibbsCAM MTM also includes Cut Part Rendering, an integrated toolpath verification module. Furthermore, toolpaths generated with GibbsCAM MTM can be fully simulated, dynamically, with GibbsCAM Machine Simulation for visual verification and collision detection and avoidance.

In addition, the company will demonstrate the new 64-bit architecture of GibbsCAM. The 64-bit version of GibbsCAM will enable users to work with much larger files and to achieve faster and more accurate results with certain graphic, toolpath generation and postprocessing functions. It will also provide higher efficiency and accuracy in evaluating machining operations with toolpath rendering and machine simulation, and provide full compatibility with 64-bit CAD systems, such as SolidWorks, Solid Edge and Autodesk Inventor.
