Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM®, software for programming CNC machine tools, announced today that GibbsCAM will be featured at the Mazak Open House, held at Mazak's Northeast Regional Technical Center, in Windsor Locks, Connecticut on June 19th– 21st. Gibbs and Associates has worked closely with Mazak to ensure that GibbsCAM MTM supports Mazak's multi-task machining centers along with their non-MTM machine tools. The latest version of GibbsCAM being demonstrated will include Machine Simulation support for multi-task machining allowing users to do virtual machine setup and prove-out of their programs avoiding costly errors out on the shop floor.

"We continue to work with Mazak Technical Centers throughout the world," comments Robb Weinstein, Gibbs' Senior VP, Sales and Strategic Planning. "Gibbs has continued to create custom post processors to support Mazak's diverse line of machine tools, such as Variaxis and E-Series. This is in addition to the numerous post processors that have been created to support Mazak's Integrex series of machine tools. Gibbs now can provide more post processors for Mazak CNC machine tools, from basic 3-axis mills to the most sophisticated machines Mazak offers, and therefore offer a more complete solution for Mazak customers directly from Gibbs than any other CAM system provider. We also offer more advanced machine simulation capabilities for Mazak machine tools through our collaboration with CGTech. CGTech has worked with Mazak for many years and has numerous machine models readily available for their VERICUT product."

This event closely follows Mazak's Energy Expo held June 13th - 14th at Mazak's Energy Services Technology Center, in Houston, Texas, which GibbsCAM was also featured at.
