Tebis Automill™ technology: Automatic NC programming combined with interactive ntervention options for NC programmers
Tebis NC programmers always have the option of accessing previously prepared, centrally stored machining sequences (NC sets), of copying NC machining steps from a related component (NC job list) or of programming individually, using individual NC functions. Technology specialists program recurring machining sequences in detail in NC sets, including all tools and cutting parameters, thus minimizing NC programming work. The NC job library saves all selections made and parameter data entered during the NC programming letting you simply and easily optimize calculated toolpaths for the tool, strategy and machining area. Another advantage is that all the NC jobs defined to manufacture a component can be copied to similar components, saving you a lot of programming work. The Tebis interactive step control continuously calculates the intermediate results and presents them to the user, who either accepts them or overrides the system, for example to set the machining sequence of different cutting zones.
Calculating NC programs directly on the CAD surfaces, including mesh and mixed data
The surfaces produced with Tebis CAM modules meet high quality standards because Tebis always calculates the toolpaths on mathematically precise CAD surfaces. Tebis uses simplified mesh models only when no exact surfaces are available in which case the system calculates NC programs on the basis of mesh and hybrid models as well.
Reliable, efficient machining with integrated tool management
Each NC program generated in Tebis is calculated on the basis of the underlying tool geometry. In addition to cutting dimensions, the internal tool library in Tebis also includes all holder components. That lets you reliably avoid holder collisions and define optimum tool lengths and approaches. For each cutter, Tebis manages not only the geometric data, but also the cutter material and materialspecific parameters (feed rates, speeds).
High-quality simulation technologies enhance process reliability and minimize lead times
Tebis simulation tools can predict real production sequences as early as the NC program calculation stage. For example, the selected cutting tool can work the component plane by plane on the machine. Virtual production tracking shows the blank as it gradually takes on the shape of the target geometry, always knowing where and how much stock still remains on the part. The advantages for you are less idle travel and dramatically shorter run times. Not only does this prolong tool life, it also increases process reliability.
