CAM software rounds out introduction of new control line from MAG Infimatic.
Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM (www.gibbscam.com), software for programming CNC machine tools, and MAG Infimatic Controls Division (www.infimatic.com) have formed a worldwide strategic partnership. A key component in the relationship is Infimatic offering Gibbs SFP (Shop Floor Programming) with the new line of MAG Infimatic open architecture, PC-based controls.
Able to support programming wire frame geometry, the Gibbs SFP version bundled with the Infimatic controller can be upgraded to support programming of more complex parts including surface and solid models. An advantage of Gibbs SFP is its complete compatibility with the GibbsCAM product line. Programs developed offline using GibbsCAM can be directly transferred to Gibbs SFP on the controller for review and modification. Changes made on the controller using Gibbs SFP can then be transferred back to GibbsCAM and referenced as shop-proven processes.
