Gibbs and DMG / MORI SEIKI Expand Collaboration on Post Processing

DMG / MORI SEIKI Approved Post Processors for GibbsCAM to be shown at EMO

 

MOORPARK, CA –September 12, 2013 – Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM® software for programming CNC machine tools and a Cimatron (NASDAQ: CIMT) company, today announced completion of the GibbsCAM interface to the DMG / MORI SEIKI APT (automatically programmed tool) language implementation, after taking a role in the DMG / MORI SEIKI standardization initiative begun last year. The technology is based upon DMG / MORI SEIKI’s implementation of standard APT with DMG / MORI SEIKI extensions that are supported within GibbsCAM. In concert with DMG / MORI SEIKI’s initial focus, the GibbsCAM interface project began with 3- to 5-axis machining. Upon completion of that component, the GibbsCAM interface was further developed to encompass both turning and mill-turn requirements. Gibbs is working with DMG / MORI SEIKI to support MTM machines in a future release. To the GibbsCAM user, the interface is a simple output selection, with no further input requirement. It will be available for demonstration at the EMO Hannover Trade Show, in Hannover, Germany, September 16-21, 2013. The GibbsCAM exhibit is Hall 25, Stand G30.

The GibbsCAM interface, in combination with the DMG / MORI SEIKI post processor, enables the full use of features in DMG / MORI SEIKI machines and controls without the need for custom post processors or machine simulation models. As new machines and machine functions are introduced, DMG / MORI SEIKI and Gibbs will incorporate the new capabilities into their APT implementation. GibbsCAM users program a part in the same way as they are accustomed to doing so, but instead of running a GibbsCAM post processor, they select the DMG / MORI SEIKI interface, and with a single mouse click, generate a DMG / MORI SEIKI -specific APT-CL file. The Manufacturing Suite Post Processor software provided by DMG / MORI SEIKI take this data and create the machine ready NC code.

Gibbs and Associates’ implementation of APT with DMG / MORI SEIKI extensions now provides output that customers can accurately post process, simulate, and execute without the need for a new post processor or modifications to an existing post processor for the entire range of machines that the DMG / MORI SEIKI APT implementation supports.
