Bernhard Rindfleisch is currently Chairman of the Board of Tebis AG

    Bernhard Rindfleisch, one of the founders of Tebis, had a vision in 1984:

    He wanted to make computer-aided NC technology and largely automated manufacturing accessible to small and medium-sized companies.

    Follow the history from a two-man operation to one of the leading providers of CAD/CAM und MES systems and a globally successful company with over 400 employees.

    Tebis version 4.1 contains a newly developed parametric/associative system base for easily modified design and data preparation. The hybrid CAD system combines free-form surfaces and solids and also provides Tebis template technology in the CAD environment. Intuitive user guidance is implemented in two individual structure trees: The CAD area shows the complete creation history, while the CAM area covers the manufacturing process.

    Tebis Consulting receives the "Best of Consulting 2018 Mittelstand" award for medium-sized companies from “Wirtschaftswoche” magazine. 

    After nearly 20 years of collaboration in customer projects, Tebis acquires ID GmbH and all its employees. The ProLeiS MES software developed by ID will continue to be integrated in the Tebis CAD/CAM environment. This will enable better representation of technical, organizational and logistical processes for Tebis customers.

    Version 4.0 provides a new user interface specifically developed for CAD/CAM applications and an industry-oriented product structure.

    One year after the company's 30th anniversary, Tebis receives the "Bavaria's Best 50" award from the Bavarian State Ministry of the Economy.

    Tebis positions itself as the provider of a comprehensive service portfolio of consulting, software, implementation and support.

    Tebis opens its first branch in China, laying the foundation for a stronger presence in the Asia-Pacific market. More branches and partnerships with local distributors are established over the following years.

    The Tebis Job Manager in Version 3.5 provides a new central control element for all machining steps in manufacturing. It contains all information on component manufacturing.

    For better planning in data management – especially in large die manufacturing companies – the ProLeiS MES system is connected directly to the Tebis user interface. This allows Tebis to deepen the development and sales partnership begun in 1999 with ID GmbH, the software developer behind ProLeiS.

    Version 3.4 sports an impressive new standardized platform for all applications. One highlight is the integration of Tebis' own verification and simulation technology. This enables NC programmers to simulate NC programs on realistic machines in their programming environment, detect problems and correct them immediately.

    Growth remains dynamic. Tebis opens branches in Great Britain, Spain and Portugal.

    Tebis initially concludes a collaboration agreement with wire EDM specialist DCAM GmbH and acquires the entire company in subsequent years.

    Tebis now enables representation of the customer's own manufacturing knowledge in the Tebis system environment. Customers now can always have quick access to their proven knowledge.

    Tebis moves into its newly constructed office building in Martinsried near Munich, Germany. In the same year, Tebis launches Version 3.2 with a completely revised design technology.

    Tebis enables integration of the customer's own tools and machines as virtual tools and machines in the Tebis programming environment. Tebis therefore becomes a pioneer in the use of digital twins in single-part production.

    In the new Version 3.1, Tebis software calculates the toolpaths on mathematically precise CAD topologies. This represents a major benefit for surface quality of the milled components and is a unique characteristic that still distinguishes Tebis today.

    Growth accelerates. A new branch is established almost every year, always near the international automotive industry. The first branches outside Germany are established in Sweden, Italy, France and the USA. A second development site is opened in Hamburg, Germany.

    Tebis provides a UNIX version with Version 3.0. Customers benefit from what was considered remarkable graphics and calculation performance on the workstations of that era.

    Tebis GmbH is converted to Tebis Technische Informationssysteme AG.

    With quality assurance functions, Tebis offers a comprehensive CAD/CAM/CAQ software to the market.

    Version 2.1 enables the calculation of NC programs for milling across multiple surfaces. The technology is based on tesselated data, i.e., meshes. The first generation of Automill® is considered a sensation in the model-making scene.

    Tebis Version 2.0 provide users with an interactive graphical on-screen menu.

    With Version 1.0, Tebis launches the first MS DOS-based 3D CAD/CAM system in the world. The cursor is controlled by a graphic input tablet overlaid with a paper "user interface" for accessing functions.

    Bernhard Rindfleisch and Jens Hagen established a GbR partnership in Moosach near Munich, Germany, providing consulting, training and programming. The company is soon converted to Tebis GmbH.
