GibbsCAM MTM (multi-task machining) module has been redesigned to reduce the time and effort required to develop postprocessors, generate CNC programs and simulate machine motion for multitasking lathes. With its redesign that includes an improved postprocessor engine, the software will program more complex machines and give users greater control of postprocessor creation, reducing or eliminating the need for highly customized postprocessors, the company says. Users will interact through a new Machine Manager module to readily create definition files for multi-axis machines of various configurations; define assembly files for machine simulation; specify kinematics of machine configurations (including axes, part stations and tool groups); specify machining preferences, such as work envelope, cycles and most frequently used options; and define interoperational events (including tool or tool group changes, spindle changes and parking locations).
 
Improved and extended support for thread whirling will be included in the new, generalized MTM. Machine Manager will replace the current MDD (machine definition) Editor to support programming and synchronization for machines with more than three flows. In addition, the Machine Simulation module moves beyond five-axis applications to include other multi-axis configurations, such as multi-axis, multi-flow Swiss-style machines. Machine Simulation will now provide users off-line testing and prove-out for such complex machines.
