MOORPARK, CA – Gibbs and Associates announced today that it has granted the Clemson University Campbell Graduate Engineering Center 50 seats of its GibbsCAM software for the university’s use in undergraduate and post-graduate mechanical and automotive engineering research and curricula. The software will be used for advanced CNC machining simulation and analysis at the university campus and the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR). Clemson University uses CAD, CAM, and many other advanced analytical and manufacturing technologies in its mechanical and automotive engineering programs. At CU-ICAR, it offers a Masters of Science degree in automotive engineering and the only Ph.D. in automotive engineering available in the country. Gibbs and their regional reseller installed and support the GibbsCAM software, which is now in use, on a network implementation, at Clemson University facilities.
“GibbsCAM covers a broad range of capabilities, from programming the simplest CNC machine tools, to verifying the most complex toolpaths, to simulating the most sophisticated machine tool motion,” explained Bill Gibbs, Gibbs and Associates company founder and president. “We are confident that our products will help Clemson students understand machining and assist their research and preparation for careers in automotive and general manufacturing. It is with this expectation that we are pleased to partner with Clemson University, by providing them a uniquely powerful CNC programming system for their innovative, first-of-class, automotive research and manufacturing programs. We look forward to their students’ success.”
The software, valued at over $550,000, includes 3-axis, rotary, and 5-axis milling, multi-task machining (MTM), and lathe turning, plus tombstone management, machine tool simulation, postprocessors, and CAD-specific translators, together with software maintenance.
“Because of this generous gift, students now have an extremely cost-efficient way of testing and analyzing different machining parameters,” said mechanical engineering assistant professor Laine Mears. “The software allows simultaneous use by up to 50 students across our graduate and undergraduate curricula. With this access, students will be able to use state-of-the-art software to help them simulate machining processes such as milling, turning and 5-axis freeform machining, and to produce and test programs before using them to make parts on the machining centers.”
