Multitasking with Enhanced Lathe Features

GibbsCAM MTM (multitask machining) now includes lathe features that are said to provide more efficiency through tool control and take advantage of newer high-tech cutting tools that turn harder materials and machine smoother surfaces. Among the features is a ProAXYZ module that enables MTM users to program thread whirling attachments on Swiss-type machines, thereby eliminating the complexity of time consuming, manual code modification at the machine control, the company says. Also, as a result of the company’s collaboration with Mazak, Mori Seiki and Tornos, the MTM module now includes features to support advanced machines from these partners.

Turning features include advanced entries and exits; entry feed rates; enhanced no-drag; clean-up pass; multi-pass plunge roughing; notch ramp roughing; offset contour and tool edge path contour; threading entry and tapping tools; and groove-tool deflection compensation. New additions to Sync Manager and Op List, and new Op Manager associativity, make multitask machining easier and more efficient with the added flexibility, the company says.
