As a matter of fact, INDEX customers are a growing percentage of GibbsCAM MTM users."
In today's highly competitive international manufacturing market, the demand for and popularity of multi-task machine tools continues to grow. Multi-task machine tools' ability to completely machine a part without any operator intervention makes them extremely productive, low labor cost machines to operate, which results in increased profitability.
Gibbs' participation at this INDEX event is a continuation of a collaborative partnership between the two companies which ensures GibbsCAM supports Index's multi-task machine tools, such as the ABC, G200 and G300 models. GibbsCAM will provide INDEX customers with a powerful NC programming solution able to support the wide variety of multi-task machine tool capabilities and configurations INDEX offers.
