GibbsCAM 2013 Released; Latest Version Includes Long List of Enhancements and New Options for Turbo Machinery and Porting

Gibbs and Associates has released the newest version of GibbsCAM NC programming software, GibbsCAM 2013. This new version includes enhancements to the entire suite of GibbsCAM software to improve efficiency and profitability. Two new options have been added to the software suite as well, 5-Axis MultiBlade and 5-Axis Porting.

GibbsCAM 2013 includes many software enhancements, mostly focusing on increasing the efficiency of part programming and the efficiency of machine run time. Enhancements include:

The new 5-Axis MultiBlade option targets the machining of turbo machinery parts. It simplifies the programming of impellers, blisks and blings with specialized functions that include roughing, blade finishing, hub finishing, splitter, sub-splitter and wall finishing, and extension and control of leading and trailing edges.

A new 5-Axis Porting option provides specialized functionality for the machining of hollow shapes that have significantly different shapes or sizes at each open end or have a significant amount of curvature from one end to the other, including engine ports, manifolds, and throttle bodies. This dedicated new option simplifies the creation of these highly complex shapes with faster programming time, a cleaner, more efficient toolpath and more efficient machine times.
