VoluMill®

GibbsCAM Milling® Comes with Volumill

GibbsCAM® includes an added bonus, VoluMill® for GibsCAM at no additional cost!  VoluMill can double your milling output by creating an Ultra High Performance Toolpath (UHPT). With VoluMill you can manage the material removal rates and enable your machine and cutting tools to perform at peak efficiency, which extends the life of and reduces the stress on your tools.

VoluMill sends more information to your machine with less code, makes fewer cuts by utilizing arc-moves, has variable feedrate in both 2D and 3D, and does not require the use of “dummy geometries” to generate a toolpath.  The technology works seamlessly with your existing GibbsCAM software seat and is intuitive to use, requiring virtually no training.  This fantastic software used to cost $1,500 and is now complementary with the purchase of or renewal of your GibbsCAM seat.

See the difference VoluMill can make:

Typical Tool path – sharp corners, varying loads, high stress and high wear on your tools

VoluMill Tool path – smooth curves, consistent loads, low stress and low wear

Do you have older CNCs that are sitting idle because they can’t handle complicated parts or don’t have hard enough stiffness? VoluMill places considerably less stress on your machine tools, extend the life of your cutting tool

Safely run your machine tools at top speeds and feeds.

Dramatically reduce cycle times and increase your profits Easily handle any pocket geometry and efficiently machine open shapes Extend the life of your cutting tools and reduce stress on your machine tools. Best of all it works with your GibbsCAM.

Open Shape Part with VoluMill Toolpath

VoluMill_img_5VoluMill precisely manages material removal rates to enable your machine tools and cutting tools to perform at peak efficiency, removing material dramatically faster than with traditional toolpath strategies. The technology works with your existing GibbsCAM or other CAM system and requires virtually no training. The only thing you need to learn is just how much faster and smoother you can machine your parts.
