Boston University College of Engineering Receives 50 Seats of GibbsCAM
MOORPARK, California, October 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM software solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, today announced that it has granted 50 seats of its GibbsCAM® software to Boston University's College of Engineering. The software, which has a commercial value of over $725,000.00, provides Boston University students the ability to program a full range of CNC machine tools from importing CAD models to generating toolpath to verifying the part program with machine tool simulation.
Programming capabilities include 2- through 5-axis milling, 2-axis turning, mill-turn, multitask machining and wire EDM. The software also provides native interoperability with PTC Creo Parametric software, the college's CAD standard, enabling direct transfer of PTC Creo models to GibbsCAM for manufacturing. The GibbsCAM software will be used in both the traditional classroom environment and in Boston University's new, 20,000 square foot Engineering Product Innovation Center (EPIC), where students of all engineering disciplines will learn about product development, from concept through design, manufacturing and delivery.
"We congratulate the Boston University College of Engineering on building its new EPIC facility with state-of-the-art technology," said Robb Weinstein, Senior Vice-President of Sales and Strategic Planning of Gibbs and Associates, a Cimatron Group subsidiary. "It is with great pleasure that we partner with Boston University to supply a state-of-the art CNC programming system for incorporation into their engineering and manufacturing curricula and the EPIC facility. In addition to being an efficient platform for manufacturing, GibbsCAM is also an effective tool for teaching and learning CNC programming and machining processes. We are confident that the College of Engineering will find GibbsCAM to be a valuable asset for educating the manufacturing professionals of tomorrow."
