Registration information and system requirements are on the Modern Machine Shop webinar page at:

This webinar will explain the basics of Tombstone Management, demonstrating how this technology can greatly reduce set-up time and improve productivity, resulting in increased profitability. Attendees will see how quickly a user can go from programming a single part to the creation a multi-part program for a fully loaded Tombstone style fixture, ready for volume production. Also addressed will be changes in machining strategy, creation of stock and fixtures, and using machine simulation to verify toolpath created by the part program, eliminating costly errors at the physical machine.

Topics to be covered in this webinar include:

  • The goal of using Tombstone Management System (TMS)
  • Typical machines that benefit from TMS
  • TMS workflow
  • Benefits of using TMS and Machine Simulation

A demonstration of GibbsCAM's Tombstone Machining option will illustrate to attendees how quick and easy it is to implement this productivity-enhancing capability.
