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.
