A “Shortcut” for Bladed Components

GibbsCAM offers two options designed to simplify the programming of bladed workpieces such as blisks and impellers.

Industries like aerospace and automotive depend on bladed components such as impellers and blisks, but these workpieces can be complex and time-consuming to program and machine. Gibbs and Associates’ MultiBlade options for GibbsCAM provide a simplified user interface optimized for working with bladed workpieces within the GibbsCAM environment.

Two levels are available, depending on the type of work or level of specialization required. Level 1 covers workpieces with single splitters, and Level 2 can be added to support multiple splitters, sub-splitters, blade fillet machining and other advanced features.

Watch the video above, produced by Gibbs and Associates, for an overview of the MultiBlade functionality in GibbsCAM.
