Midwest CAM Solutions News
Spring/Summer 2021
The Latest from Don
There have been a few changes around here since our last newsletter! Rick Meide has retired and is now living the dream fishing and spending lots of time with his lovely wife Kay.

In case we haven't met, I'm Don Casanova and after spending the last two years as an Application Engineer here at Midwest CAM Solutions, I was thrilled to be able to step up and take over the business as the new owner and CEO. I'll be taking care of running the business as well as any Maintenance needs.

Rest assured that we will continue to make serving you, our customers, our #1 priority, as it always has been. In fact, we’ve brought on a new Account Manager, Andy Bleck for just that purpose. You can find out more about him and Craig Dobson in this newsletter.

Just like you, we are looking forward to things opening up this year! We’ve missed getting out and visiting customers in their shops, doing on-site training, and attending trade shows. Even with the challenges of the last year, we’ve been able to get Evening Training Classes going again, and they are thriving.

2021 is looking bright, and we wish you and your business much success! Please feel free to reach out to me if there is anything I can do to help.

Are You Using GibbsCAM 14?
Are you taking advantage of the new capabilities of GibbsCAM 14? Sometimes it's easy to download a new version of software, but never really dig into the new features that will save you time and make a real difference in the productivity of your shop.
Usability and Workflow Improvements
These improvements are to things you do everyday. Those little bits of efficiency add up to big productivity savings!
3D Material Only
Powerful 3D Material only cutting reduces air cutting to create a more efficient toolpath, which minimizes machine run time, and increases your bottom line.

U-Axis Turning & Swappable Heads
Advanced kinematic improvements enable you to do more with the CNC machines on your shop floor.
New GibbsCAM Options
Add functionality to your GibbsCAM seat to automate the full machining process with probing, integrate your Wire EDM machines into your GibbsCAM programming environment, and look to the future with new Hybrid machining.
Probing
In-process probing allows you to take measurements, inspect features, and confirm the accuracy of a part without taking it off the machine.
Wire EDM
This new Wire EDM option is a proven, comprehensive solution for all major wire EDM machines. The state-of-the-art system simplifies programming the wire EDMs in your shop.
Hybrid Machinig
GibbsCAM 14 supports hybrid machines that are capable of both additive and subtractive operations. Once material has been deposited, standard machining processes can cut the new material. 
If you have any questions about the new capabilities, would like to get back on Maintenance so that you can take advantage of all the new features, or want a demo of the new options, give us a call:
