5-Axis multiblade and porting options are among the powerful new features planned for GibbsCAM 2013 that will be demonstrated at EASTEC 2013.
Gibbs and Associates (Moorpark, CA), developer of GibbsCAM® software for programming CNC machine tools and a Cimatron company, will demonstrate GibbsCAM 2013 at the EASTEC 2013 tradeshow in W. Springfield, MA from May 14–16, with many new enhancements that provide incremental performance improvement in the easy-to-use productivity tools users already enjoy, including simplified programming and improved 5-axis milling in specialized applications.
The planned release of GibbsCAM 2013 continues the tradition of incorporating powerful features with an easy-to-use interface. Among some of the features and enhancements are the following.
- Two 5-Axis MultiBlade Options – These simplify programming and machining bladed turbomachinery components such as impellers, blisks and blings. Specialized functions for roughing, blade finishing and hub finishing, with automatic tilting and linking, and full control of leading and trailing edges speed up programming, generate better surface finishes and reduce machining time.
- 5-Axis Porting – This option provides specialized functions to make programming faster and easier, and generate more efficient and smoother toolpaths for machining hollow parts that have significantly different shapes or sizes at each open end, or that have significant curvature from one end to the other, typical of engine exhaust ports, combustion chambers, manifolds and throttle bodies.
