    Avoid these 10 mistakes in manufacturing planning

    I'd like to take this opportunity to list some common mistakes in manufacturing planning and look at the causes of lost time. Experience has shown that some of them can be easily avoided. Download our list of errors as an information sheet to see where you can start.

    Why manufacturing projects aren’t often completed on time

    Katja Steiner – Sales Development

    In addition to price and quality, a die manufacturer is evaluated based largely on its delivery time. If it’s too long, there’s a risk of losing orders. Make sure this never happens: Take control of the causes of late delivery. We’ll show you how it’s done and what’s slowing down your processes.

    Not satisfied with milling results, even with an HSC machine?

    Fabian Jud – Product Manager

    It´s more than annoying when milling quality is worse than expected after finishing – especially when top-quality surfaces are required and have to be finished on a high-quality HSC milling machine. However, this usually has nothing to do with the HSC machine.. As I see it, there are a number of key adjustments that have to be made along the way to the "perfect" surface in order to achieve the best result. 

    The Top 5 reasons that I recommend Tebis 4.1

    Stefan Armbruster – Director Process Solutions

    Tebis versions 4.1 and 4.0 have now been merged. This creates a lot of room for automation and extensions. I find – and my team confirms – that the more you work with Tebis 4.1, the more aware you become of the advantages: significantly more structure work and improved traceability, faster implementation of changes, automated routines. CAD and CAM are brought closer together, which saves a lot of time and also facilitates training of new employees.

    Turn-milling: High-class machine = high-class result?

    So-called multi-channel lathes or turning-milling machines have been increasing in popularity for several years. These high-class machines also promise advantages in terms of small series and single-part manufacturing and stand for premium results.

    More clarity in manufacturing

    Reiner Schmid - Head of product management

    We've all known for a long time that there is no way around digital solutions in die and mold manufacturing and production machining. But who can give us the big picture? What measures are actually right for my company? My colleagues and I got together this summer and put together an industry-specific guide. It shows you very specifically how you can make a well-planned start with digitalization – using your existing resources and with immediate success. 

    What makes a modern CAM system?

    Reiner Schmid - Head of Product Management

    High-quality results, automated processes, efficient work procedures and maximum safety in production – the demands on modern CAM systems are high. Constantly changing market requirements and technical innovations require continuous adaptation of the software. With continuing market consolidation, this is no easy task. So what actually makes a modern CAM system? 

    Manufacturing without the fear factor

    Markus Rausch – Tebis Consultant

    Collisions on the machine are a nightmare. But collision checking isn’t just about collisions. The subject of "time" also plays an important role. Many die and mold manufacturers that I currently visit as a Tebis consultant still rely on workarounds that are admittedly resourceful. This blog post tells you what they are and how to get control over these time wasters. 

    Automate halfway? Try rowing with one oar.

    Although most medium-sized companies have somewhat automated their CAD/CAM processes, their operations still aren’t running as smoothly as they could. This is because they are not consistently and completely implementing automation – and their reasons may be understandable. But as a result, momentum and capability is lost. This doesn’t have to be the case.

    Is the skilled labor shortage affecting your company? Here are 10 strategies to help.

    The issue of the "skilled labor shortage" is a ubiquitous one. Companies are desperate to find industrial mechanics, toolmakers and machinists. But even with fewer personnel, there are ways to remain successful – or become even more successful.

    How a CAD template truly simplified my CAM programming

    Christian Maier – Technical Support Team Lead

    A CAD template enable the automatic completion of routine data preparation tasks for any parts. The template simultaneously handles the preparation work for automated CAM programming. This accelerates the transition from design to the finished part. Applications engineer Christian Maier shows how this works and invites you to a free demo that will save time, using your own part.
