ToolManageriQ™ launches V2.5 An integrated Tool Data Management System for GibbsCAM


Margate, FL: CAM Solutions, a preferred systems integrator for GibbsCAM® and the developer of popular GibbsCAM plugin – Raster2Vector,® is pleased to announce the release of the latest GibbsCAM® plugin, ToolManageriQ™ V2.5. This latest development brings the efficiency of Tool Data Management seamlessly to the latest versions of GibbsCAM®.

The ToolManageriQ™ V2.5 release includes several enhancements; first and foremost, ToolManageriQ™ ability to work natively inside of GibbsCAM® 2022. It is also backward compatible with GibbsCAM® V13. Mathematical functions have been added to each of the dialogs providing seamless imperial/metric conversion, and fractional values to decimal conversion on the fly. In addition, an improved installer for SQL integration and ToolManageriQ™ V2.5 now supports eight languages; Czech, English, Finnish, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, and Swedish.

“What makes ToolManageriQ™ unique in the world of Tool Data Management solutions is that it has both the ability to perform natively within GibbsCAM®, as well as being a standalone software solution,” says Al Martins, Director of CAM Solutions. “This functionality will allow both the CNC programmer and support team to share tool information while adding value not typically available to CNC programmers; such as, supplier information, details, part numbers and barcode information.”

Managing tools, tool holders, and fixture models efficiently when using CAM software is often a challenge for many CNC programmers due to many of the same required tasks having to be performed repeatedly. ToolManageriQ™ V2.5 systematizes these frequently performed tasks. Users can quickly discern which tools are available and where they have been used before. ToolManageriQ™ eliminates the need to manually search for or find lost tools. It instantly associates tool holders with tools, sorts tools by machine, job, or by type – essentially creating “playlists” for all your tools and fixtures. With a local centralized database,
fully integrated into GibbsCAM®, enriching tool data and fixture information for everyone on the team – in real time.

Having the GibbsCAM® plugin and standalone versions available to the whole team makes Tool Data Management a breeze, reducing stress while still being an enormous time saver. Since ToolManageriQ™ is locally installed and does not require cloud connectivity, it is lighting fast at moving tools and fixtures within GibbsCAM® through a secure local environment.
