Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM® software for programming CNC machine tools and a Cimatron company, today announced its participation at HaasTec 2013, the Haas Open House, in support of machine-tool builder Haas Automation. GibbsCAM supports the entire line of Haas vertical and horizontal CNC machining centers, lathes, multi-task machines, 5-axis rotary tables and indexers, and the new UMC 750 5-axis vertical machining center to be featured at the event. Easy-to-use CNC programming features include programming for 5-axis simultaneous machining, tombstone management, multi-task machining (MTM), toolpath verification, machine simulation and post processors. Haas will hold the HaasTec 2013 Open House at its manufacturing and headquarters facility at 2800 Sturgis Road, in Oxnard, California. The event will run daily, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., local time, from April 9-12, 2013.
"HaasTec is a great opportunity to display Haas and Gibbs technology in action," said Bill Gibbs, Gibbs and Associates company founder and president. "We believe that GibbsCAM is the best software for programming multi-axis machines, and we enjoy demonstrating our leadership in MTM and other categories, with easy-to-learn, easy-to-use software that takes advantage of the technology that a machine offers. GibbsCAM supports the new Haas UMC 750 5-axis VMC, and their latest and most capable MTM, the DS-30SSY, which is a dual-spindle, single-turret, Y-axis machine with live tooling. We look forward to demonstrating the superiority of GibbsCAM to Haas customers, and doing it better and faster to maximize profitability from their CNCs."
James Moore, Gibbs distribution manager, will deliver a presentation titled "Ultra-High Performance Toolpaths on Haas CNC Machines," on Thursday, April 11, at 1:00 p.m., discussing the title topic and the many advantages of using GibbsCAM. After the presentation, he will be available to answer questions from Haas customers. In addition, all of the GibbsCAM features that support Haas machine tools will be available for demonstration at the Open House, where guests can visit with Gibbs and with vendors of tooling and probing equipment.
The latest Haas CNC technology will be on live display, with eighteen machines cutting metal. Haas will also provide guided tours of its 1,000,000 square-foot manufacturing and assembly facility, so that visitors can see, on the production floor and from above it, how and where Haas machines are built. After the guided tours, Haas will serve a barbecue lunch "under the big tent." Haas encourages advance registration, and provides additional information at its site, together with a link to a registration form.
