Cimatron Sells 1, 500 Post Processor in January Alone


Israel’s Cimatron, a provider of integrated CAD/CAM software solutions for the tool making and manufacturing industries, announced that this month it delivered its 1, 500th post processor for GibbsCAM, in support of a growing variety of Multi-Task Machines (MTMs) from 75 manufacturers. Each of the 1, 500 post processors is uniquely developed and configured for a specific combination of MTM machine, machine options, machine control and shop-process preference.

The company calls this a milestone which represents the continuing adoption of MTMs for the productivity the machines can provide, and increased utilization of GibbsCAM to program the machines. GibbsCAM MTM post processors, in combination with GibbsCAM software – widely known for its shop-friendly interface – allows Gibbs to provide a unique solution to customers who own “standard” or “Swiss style” multi-task machines.

Gibbs has a staff dedicated to doing the machine and control research for the specific machine, and then developing, implementing and maintaining post processors for the customer. This service has proven most valuable to customers with MTM machines, because the machines require a specialized post processor that is unique to each machine configuration.

Multi-tasking machines require a CAM system capable of programming the complex combination of milling and turning within a restricted work envelope while synchronizing multiple tool groups and spindles to machine, transfer and release parts.

“The GibbsCAM post processor group has extensive knowledge of all types of lathes, mills, multi-tasking machines and their associated options and controls, and customers gain the benefit of this expertise by having us develop and maintain their post processors, ” said Robb Weinstein, Senior Vice-President of Sales and Strategic Planning of Gibbs and Associates. “GibbsCAM MTM post processors get customers’ machines productive much faster, avoid wasting their CNC programming resources, and enable us to better serve them with the most versatile, effective, and easy-to-use solution for MTM programming.”
