Accuracy spot on thanks to Tebis!
Up until recently, Interform Manufacturing had no CAD/CAM capabilities in place. By introducing Tebis to their shop floor they are now achieving the accuracy they had been striving for and are eager to learn more about Tebis and how it could benefit other areas of the business.
Based in High Wycombe, Interform offers a complete range of vacuum forming and manufacturing solutions. Established 32 years ago, the company was originally set up to make lawn mower parts and have diversified to offer their services to a variety of industries including Aviation, Automotive, Marine, Retail and TV & Film. Their services include prototyping, tool making, fabrication and assembly and CNC machining. They’ve even made props for the Harry Potter, Star Wars and James Bond movies!
With 19 employees and an array of items to produce for a variety of industries the time was right to invest and automate their CAD/CAM processes. They had previously been teaching in by hand. There are now 3 employees working with Tebis on a Maka MK7 and KPF.
The software allows us to produce our parts more efficiently and to a more accurate tolerance. Before we were teaching the parts by hand on to the machines and this meant we couldn’t hold the tolerance of the drawings.
The company have witnessed improvements in accuracy, collision checking and quality.
- Tebis has improved productivity, enabling Interform to complete collision checking of the machine, jig and part and check the quality of the components being made
- Use Tebis CAD/CAM to produce 5-axis trimming tool paths and for the trimming of components
