Gibbs presents trophy to Jason Heyse
Texas Offline Receives USA Top
GibbsCAM Resellers Award
Gibbs and Associates held their annual Gibbs
Reseller meeting early this year in Agora Hills CA. Once again
Texas Offline won the trophy for the Top Reseller in the USA. This is
the 15th trophy for Texas Offline since opening in 1996.
sells GibbsCAM in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri,
Kansas and Mississippi. When asked what he
contributed his success to, Jason Heyse replied, "I started my
machine shop in my early twenties and went through the '80's oil
crunch. I never forgot what it was like to be a machine shop
owner and the long hours and hard work I put in. I have the
utmost respect for all my customers, and I consider it a privilege to
provide them good tools for their tool box. We want to be an
active partner in their business to help their business grow
especially in this economic time. When our customers are
successful, the economy is successful and we all benefit."
have always known that our strength lay in our many Machine
Associates in MO, KS, AR, OK, LA and Texas", stated Jason Heyse,
Texas Offline President. "We are humbled to have received the #1
in Sales for the USA, especially in this economy. Texas Offline has never been about
numbers or getting to the top, our vision for our company has always
been about delivering a solid solution to our customers in an honest
& trustworthy manner. I
think that simple philosophy alone is what we were awarded for."
Coming from the machining world since high school, Jason started
Texas Offline Inc. in 1996. Gibbs Corporate trusted him with
the state of Texas that no one else had been successful in. "We
have seen a lot of technology change in thirteen years and there
is no where it has been more visible that in the Machining
Industry." After only a year of selling Gibbs, Jason
was inducted into the Vice Presidents Club. Gibbs Corporate
finally took notice of the Lone Star State and Jason was allowed to
branch out of the Houston area and opened a second office in North
Texas and a third in Arkansas. The second year of the business
Jason was inducted into the Presidents Club where he has remained
every since. There has never been a Gibbs Reseller who rose to the
Presidents club so quickly before or since other than Texas Offline.
He has continued to be one of the top Gibbs Resellers in the world
and continually finds ways to raise the bar.
twenty-five years, Gibbs and Associates has been a leader in

Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), on September 16, 2010.
large and small, captive andindependent, are looking for economical
ways to improve the bottom line, and survive this tough economic
environment," said Bill Gibbs. "In an effort to help
them, I will discuss key contributors to production costs that can
be eliminated with an easy-to-use but highly capable CAM system
such as GibbsCAM. The cost contributors are not theoretical, but
real problems identified at various machining operations, where we
have seen our own customers reduce or eliminate these costs."
Bill Gibbs founded Gibbs and
Associates as a contract programming service for CNC part
programming in 1982, and the company started developing CAD/CAM
software two years later. In 2008, Gibbs and Associates merged into
Cimatron to jointly become the seventh largest CAM provider in the
world. Bill Gibbs is now president of Cimatron North America,
marketing and selling both of Cimatron's main product lines,
GibbsCAM and CimatronE.
The presentation, entitled "CAM Software and Your Profitability",
is part of a conference series sponsored by IMTS, which will
explore the relationship between innovative technology and business
development. The conference runs from September 14-17, and Bill
Gibbs' presentation will take place on Thursday, September 16,
2010, at 11:00 A.M., in the West Building of McCormick Place, in
Next Generation MTM Features to Be Highlighted at
and Associates will demonstrate forthcoming features of GibbsCAM
MTM (multi-task machining) at the International Manufacturing
Technology Show (IMTS), September 13-18, at McCormick Place, in
Highly Extended, Generalized MTM, with Improved Postprocessor
No longer based upon or
restricted to lathe operations, MTM has been redesigned to reduce
the time and effort required to develop postprocessors, generate
CNC programs and simulate machine motion. With its redesign, the
software will program more complex machines and give users greater
control of postprocessor creation. Users will interact through a
new Machine Manager module to readily create definition files for
multi-axis machines of various configurations; define assembly files
for Machine Simulation; specify kinematics of machine
configurations (axes, part stations, tool groups, etc.); specify
machining preferences, such as work envelope, cycles and most
frequently used options; and define interoperational events (tool
or tool group changes, spindle changes, parking locations, etc.).
Extended Swiss-style Machine Support
Improved and extended support for thread whirling will be included
in the new, generalized MTM. Machine Manager will replace the
current MDD (machine definition) Editor to support programming and
synchronization for machines with more than three flows.
Swiss-style Machine Simulation
GibbsCAM Machine Simulation moves beyond 5-axis, to include other
multi-axis configurations, including multi-axis, multi-flow Swiss-style
machines. Machine Simulation will now provide users off-line
testing and prove-out for the most complex machines.
"As developers of what is probably the most capable CAM
system for multi-task machines, we recognize that MTM machines are
becoming too sophisticated for lathe-centered CAM software,"
said Bill Gibbs, president of Gibbs and Associates and Cimatron
North America. "Our new software will extend programming
capability, efficiency and flexibility to drive more complex
machines, and simplify the programming effort for our customers. It
will also enable dynamic simulation of complex Swiss machines with
multiple flows and other machines with more than five axes."
Has it been awhile since you've looked at the Gibbs
Website www.gibbscam.com? They have had a recent makeover and have added some
noteworthy solutions you might want to take advantage of.
If you're considering upgrading to a new module, this is
a perfect place to start. GibbsCAM Production Mill and Lathe
modules, all of our Solids, MTM, Wire, 5 axis and the new VoluMill,
are all featured here. There are product data sheets on all the
modules and some even have clips of the modules in action. Give
us a call after you've researched and Jason will be glad to show you
a demo on any of these modules and we will deliver a quote to you.
Another new addition under News and Events is the
Customer Showcase. Customers like yourselves submit some really
nice pictures of parts to Gibbs. Gibbs will call and interview
you to write the article. This is great publicity for your
company and you can always put a link on your website directing
your customers here during this publication. This is open to
any GibbsCAM user. Several of Texas Offline customers have been
featured in this section.
Also under News and Events are scheduled events,
like Free Webinars hosted by Bill Gibbs, and a place to sign up
for the free Gibbs Newsletters.
We especially want to bring to your attention to the
Gibbs Chat Room under the Support tab. Anyone can participate
and chat with other Gibbs users like yourselves or read the topics of
previous chats. Sometimes the best solutions are discovered by
Gibbs users just like yourself. Additional Product Manuals can
also be purchased under this tab.
We think you'll like the new look at www.gibbscam.com

Stay Ahead of
Today more than ever it's important to keep your annual
GibbsCAM Maintenance. We are all experiencing tough times and
looking to save money whenever we can. Keeping your GibbsCAM up
to date is a way of investing in tomorrow's technology that will keep
you ahead of your competition. It's also good business to not
lose that initial investment you made when you purchased
GibbsCAM. With competition so great in our markets, you have to
be ready to take on any new work that comes in your door.
Continuing on your maintenance will assure you that you have cutting
edge technology against your competitors.
After you win the bid on that job you won't want to find
out that you can't bring in their CAD files. You HAVE to have
the current Gibbs to bring in current SolidWorks. Just saving
it as a previous version will not work.
Texas Offline believes in Maintenance so much that we
will finance this for you ourselves in four monthly payments to make
it easier for you. Multiple times throughout this last year we
have had to break the bad news to a customer when their key was
stolen, they needed to add a module to make their machine work, or
could not cut a hot job because they were not on maintenance.
Once you pass that point and let it expire, it is very difficult to
come back because of the penalties.
If you have fallen on hard times, you are not
alone. Please let us know and we will do whatever we can to
help our customers out. Texas Offline's customers have been
very faithful to us throughout the years, & in times of trouble,
we want to help you out when we can.
