MTM programming leader receives certification on Tornos DECO mono-spindle Swiss machine tools.
MOORPARK, CA - June 26, 2007 - Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM®, software for programming CNC machine tools, announced today that Tornos S.A., Moutier, Switzerland, has certified GibbsCAM for programming the Tornos DECO [a-line] single spindle Swiss machine tools. This recent accomplishment was realized through the combined efforts of Gibbs, Tornos and Productec, the GibbsCAM Reseller located in Switzerland, who is also a developer of GibbsCAM application extensions. This certification recognizes GibbsCAM's ability to successfully generated part programs for three complex parts with multiple and diverse machining operations with zero errors. The three programs were then loaded into a DECO 13a machine and executed, producing parts to print specifications.
"This certification is the successful outcome of an on-going collaboration between Gibbs, Tornos and Productec," comments François Steulet, Productec's CEO. "Working together, we were able to develop a specialized post processing solution which allows GibbsCAM MTM, an ideal programming environment for multi-task machine tools, to support the Tornos TB-DECO's pulse style of programming."
"We are extremely please for GibbsCAM to have received this certification from Tornos," states Bill Gibbs, founder and president of Gibbs and Associates. "We have enthusiastically supported this effort led by Productec to support this rather unique series of machine tools. We look forward to an on-going collaboration to further advance our offerings."
The companies have agreed to continue their collaboration, making improvements, advancements and additions to their respective software to give their mutual customers enhanced products in the future.
