GibbsCAM Certified for DMG MORI Machine Tools
The software from Gibbs and Associates has been certified to program all of the MORI SEIKI mills, lathes and mill-turn machines that DMG MORI supports with their Manufacturing Suite Post Processor.
Gibbs and Associates (Moorpark, CA), developer of GibbsCAM® software for programming CNC machine tools and a Cimatron company, announced that DMG MORI (Hoffman Estates, IL) has certified GibbsCAM to program all the MORI SEIKI mills, lathes and mill-turn machines that DMG MORI supports with their Manufacturing Suite Post Processor. Gibbs and Associates took a leadership role in the initiative to implement DMG MORI-APT.
Certification indicates successful testing and proof by DMG MORI that customers can accurately post process, simulate, and execute GibbsCAM’s MORI-APT output for the DMG MORI series of mill, turn, and mill-turn machines, which include the NMV Series, NH(X) Series, NV(X) Series, NL(X) Series NT(X) Series and NT Series, without the need for custom post processors. This allows customers to immediately make their machines productive as soon as they are installed.
Gibbs and Associates will continue to support all DMG MORI machines not yet supported with Manufacturing Suite, including all of the most capable and complex of the multi-tasking machines, with its own GibbsCAM post processors, as it has for the past 30 years.
GibbsCAM and its MORI-APT implementation will be exhibited and available for demonstration at DMG MORI’s Chicago Innovation Days 2014, which will include product introductions, demonstration of 38 DMG MORI machines, highlights of the latest DMG MORI software, automation and additive manufacturing technology, plus daily seminars by leading manufacturing companies. Innovation Days will run from May 6–9 at DMG MORI USA, 2400 Huntington Boulevard, Hoffman Estates, IL.
GibbsCAM users complemented by the Manufacturing Suite Post Processor and machine simulation can continue to program parts in the same, efficient way in which they are accustomed, but instead of running a GibbsCAM post processor, they can select MORI APT-CL as the output file format. The DMG MORI Manufacturing Suite Post Processor will then use the machining file created to generate the machine-ready CNC code, which the MORI SEIKI control can then simulate and execute to machine the part.
