CAVE CREEK, AZ – Celeritive Technologies has signed an agreement with Gibbs and Associates of Moorpark, CA to offer the high-speed machining toolpath engine VoluMill as an option for its GibbsCAM CAD/CAM product.
VoluMill™, created by Celeritive, is a toolpath engine that is fully integrated with GibbsCAM. Soon, GibbsCAM also will have VoluMill Solids as an option with GibbsCAM. This new genre technology generates ultra-high-performance toolpaths with smooth radial motions and controlled force on the spindle and cutting tool. VoluMill toolpaths are based on optimal material removal parameters that dramatically reduce cycle times and significantly extend the life of cutting tools.
“VoluMill is the first third-party product that my resellers are talking about and asking for,” says Bill Gibbs, founder of Gibbs and Associates. “Early Gibbs users are raving about the impact VoluMill is having on their operating costs. The VoluMill option will become part of Gibbs’ standard offering and will be promoted, shown and demonstrated at trade shows and in webinars.”
