Gibbs and Associates founder and Cimatron North America president Bill Gibbs will address manufacturers at the International Machine Tool Show this month with a presentation on the ways that CAM software can increase profits. Gibbs and Associates is the developer of GibbsCAM® software for programming CNC machine tools.
Bill Gibbs founded Gibbs and Associates in 1982 as a contract programming service for CNC part programming in 1982. The company started developing CAD/CAM software in 1984. In 2008, Gibbs and Associates merged into Cimatron to form the seventh-largest CAM provider in the world.
“Job shops, large and small, captive and independent, are looking for economical ways to improve the bottom line, and survive this tough economic environment,” according to Bill Gibbs. “In an effort to help them, I will discuss key contributors to production costs that can be eliminated with an easy-to-use but highly capable CAM system such as GibbsCAM. The cost contributors are not theoretical, but real problems identified at various machining operations, where we have seen our own customers reduce or eliminate these costs.”
The presentation, entitled “CAM Software and Your Profitability,” is part of a conference series sponsored by IMTS and running September 14-17, exploring the relationship between innovative technology and business development. Bill Gibbs’ presentation will take place on Thursday, September 16, 2010, at 11:00 A.M., in the West Building of McCormick Place, in Chicago.
