Contact: Yvonne Anderson Gibbs and Associates (805) 523-0004 (805) 523-0006 (Fax) EmailMOORPARK, CA – June 17, 2005 – Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software for programming computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools, announced today that GibbsCAM will be demonstrated as part of Haas Automation's upcoming eighth annual Demo Day to be held June 22nd from 10AM – 5PM at Haas Factory Outlets throughout the United States and Canada.
"We're extremely pleased to have GibbsCAM presented at the Haas Demo Day 8," states Bill Gibbs, Gibbs and Associates company founder and president. "GibbsCAM is used daily by Haas application engineers to create CNC programs demonstrating Haas machine tools' capabilities. In addition, Haas also uses GibbsCAM for the day-to-day production of their machine tools." The one-day Demo Day 8 event will feature the latest affordable, super- high- production CNC machines from Haas, with live demonstrations on every machine in the HFO showroom. The latest Haas high-output machining centers – especially the two newest HMCs and the all- new pallet- changing small VMC will be showcased. Haas applications engineers will also be on hand to share their insights and answer questions.
In support of this event's focus, the new GibbsCAM TMS (Tombstone Management System) option will be featured along with standard GibbsCAM modules. GibbsCAM TMS, originally developed to support Haas' internal programming needs for tombstone manufacturing, supports the efficient layout and programming of tombstone-fixtured parts, a popular mode of machining in high-throughput production. GibbsCAM TMS is further augmented with GibbsCAM Machine Simulation which allows complete simulation and verification of machine tool motions, reducing on-machine prove-out and minimizing programming and set-up errors.
