    How mold manufacturing customers use Tebis:

    CAD software specialized for manufacturing 

    Designers, planners and NC programmers use Tebis CAD modules for manufacturing-related design tasks. This goes quickly and is highly automated with parametric/associative surface and solid technology. Creating, supplementing, modifying and improving CAD models ensure large savings – also in subsequent processes. 

    Preparing CAD models for manufacturing

    Fast and safe with combined solid and surface technology in Tebis: The better a CAD model is prepared for NC manufacturing, the less time and effort needs to be invested in NC programming. In many cases, NC programming can proceed automatically in Tebis.

    CAM software for many manufacturing methods

    Tebis CAD/CAM software lets you quickly, easily and automatically create collision-free NC programs for many manufacturing methods – including drilling, milling, turning, turning/milling, robotic milling, trimming, sinker EDM, wire EDM, 3D laser cutting, laser hardening and laser weld cladding.

    CNC programming

    Tebis CNC programming greatly reduces programming and setup time in the overall process chain. Tebis combines speed, reliability and a high degree of automation with the greatest possible flexibility. The portfolio includes industry-specific solutions for all areas, including 2.5D, 3D and 5-axis machining.

    CNC automation
    Tebis Automill® evaluates the digital CAD part model and accesses a previously stored structure of digital representations of the company's manufacturing environment and the manufacturing knowledge stored in templates to calculate the NC programs.
    CNC simulator

    The Tebis CNC Simulator lets you fully plan, program and check your NC machining operations in the Tebis CNC programming environment. All of the components in your real manufacturing environment – including tools, machines, clamping devices and units – are stored down to the last detail as digital twins in the virtual programming environment. 

    CNC drilling

    Tebis lets you program simple bores and complex multi-sided machining operations right at your CAM workplace. Strategies for centering, countersinking, reaming, thread cutting, thread milling and milling fittings are included. You benefit from automated manufacturing templates and shortened traverse paths using virtual machine technology. 

    Deep-hole drilling

    Tebis offers an automated, reliable and complete solution for deep-hole drilling that you can use to achieve excellent high cutting performance. You can also benefit from functions such as automatic detection of spot facings or sorting and grouping of features by tilt direction and machining sequence.

    2.5D milling

    Prismatic machining can be completely automated based on individual process libraries using Tebis template technology. Programming on the machine is eliminated and NC programming at the Tebis workstation is simple.

    3D milling

    Free-form machining lets you combine all your strategies for roughing, finishing and residual stock machining in the Tebis Job Manager. You can use convenient template technology and ensure collision avoidance already in the CAM environment.

    5-axis milling

    Tebis 5-axis milling lets you use the full potential of your expensive high-performance machines: Collision-free programs can be easily planned and calculated for all multi-axis machining operations. Simultaneous 5-axis strategies that are customized for specific manufacturing tasks make NC programming very simple – especially in combination with Tebis template technology. 

    High-efficiency roughing

    Compared with conventional roughing, time savings of over 60 percent can be achieved with adaptive roughing using special HPC cutters with very large cutting depths. The path layout is perfectly adapted to the geometry with no full cuts. 

    HFC milling

    HFC tools allow you to achieve high machining rates at high feed rates. Tebis calculates the residual stock with absolute precision: The maximum amount of possible material is removed. HFC tools can therefore be used optimally with Tebis, not only for roughing but also for prefinishing. 

    Rib and slot milling

    Automated CAD and CAM functions make rib and slot milling very simple. All areas that are suitable for slot milling are automatically detected by the system and divided into categories, like the bottom, flanks and radii. These areas can then be machined using suitable strategies based on templates.

    Circle-segment cutters

    Circle-segment cutters have a special geometry that saves you up to 80 percent of the time required for prefinishing and finishing compared to machining with ball cutters. Tebis supports all these kinds of efficient high-performance tools – because each tool can be modeled with precise attention to detail in the virtual CAM environment. 


    Quickly and reliably generate toolpaths for 5-axis trimming of parts with Tebis. Collisions with other component areas, clamping devices and machine components are excluded. Offline programming lets you avoid tedious teach-in and unproductive use of the machine. 

    Sinker EDM

    Tebis puts you in control of the complexities of sinker EDM – from automatic detection to convenient, database-supported design, methodical NC machining, to measurement of the finished electrodes.

    Wire EDM

    Tebis provides wire EDM functions for precisely manufactured parts with highly complex geometry, maximum quality requirements and the smallest corner radii: for example, components in die and mold manufacturing and the medical and aerospace industries. 

    Multiple setup

    Tebis lets you separate NC programming and setup planning. NC programming and machining can be done independently in terms of time and organization. Parts and clamping devices are also protected from collisions.

    In-process measurement

    Establish the necessary process reliability during unattended late shifts and night shifts with automatic checking and correction of part orientation and blank dimensions. This lets you make the best possible use of highly automated machine centers.

    MES software for manufacturing management 

    ProLeiS MES gives you a clear view of planned, ongoing, and potential projects.

    With ProLeiS, you can plan and control your resources, deliver on time, and evaluate order data.

    This full visibility lets you optimize your manufacturing processes and production capacity.

    Why precise manufacturing planning is worthwhile

    Companies that plan single part manufacturing based on a bill of materials ensure a high degree of accuracy. A detailed overview and clear workflows simplify manufacturing control.
