Domestic introduction of Gibbs SFP software on Fadal Machine Tools with new MAG Infimatic control.
MOORPARK, CA - November 7th, 2007 - Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM®, software for programming CNC machine tools, announced today that they will be participating in the 2007 MAG Fadal Open House held November 15th & 16th, at Fadal Machining Centers' offices in Chatsworth, CA. This event will be the domestic introduction of Gibbs SFP on the new MAG Infimatic controls being used with a variety of MAG Fadal machine tools. Gibbs SFP will be bundled with these MAG Fadal machine tools allowing users to become productive sooner realizing a faster return on their investment. During the Open House Gibbs will also be presenting a seminar on new developments in CAD/CAM software.
The Gibbs SFP, MAG Infimatic and MAG Fadal combination had already been introduced at this year's EMO held in September at Hannover, Germany. There the joint roll-out received considerable attention from industry press and show attendees. At EMO, Gibbs SFP was demonstrated both on free-standing Infimatic controls and also on a MAG Fadal VMC 4020 FX and a MAG Fadal VMC 2216 FX machine tools which were controlled by MAG Infimatic controllers. MAG Fadal is the first machine builder to adopt the new MAG Infimatic controllers.
"We're excited to be participating at the 2007 Fadal Open House. Gibbs has had a long standing working relationship with both MAG Fadal," states Robb Weinstein, Gibbs' Senior VP of Sales and Strategic Planning. "Gibbs is extremely pleased that MAG/Fadal Division has elected to offer the new Infimatic open architecture control with Fadal CNC machines. This provides our mutual customers with a complementary solution with the Fadal 32MP and 104D controls, in addition to the new Infimatic CNC controls all of which are bundled with Gibbs SFP."
In addition to Gibbs SFP, the latest version of GibbsCAM will also be demonstrated at the MAG Fadal Open House. A key advantage of Gibbs SFP is its complete compatibility with the GibbsCAM product line. Programs developed offline using GibbsCAM can be directly transferred to Gibbs SFP on the controller for review and easy modification. Changes made on the controller using Gibbs SFP can then be transferred back to GibbsCAM and referenced as shop-proven processes.
