Flexible and reliable production
Virtual process support: The milling centers at Hummel-Formen frequently perform the majority of the machining before the final form is known. Upon customer request, designers can actually change the data for a planned injection mold during the machining process. The result: Up to 30% shorter throughput times, thanks to a Tebis software solution that supports the entire process.
The integration of Tebis software for electrode manufacture and simulation of the complete milling machining process allowed Hummel-Formen to further optimize its process chain in 2007. This company in Lenningen has now reduced its throughput times by up to 30% and has also partially automated its generation of NC programs for electrode manufacturing. Other benefits include improved quality and reduced stress when dealing with time constraints. We are a very innovative organization, and we like to take new paths. We had already begun acquiring electronic operating data in 1983," explains partner Jochen Hummel. In 2007, we expanded our end-to-end IT manufacturing system with the Tebis Electrode Design and Simulation modules. These have given us a significant edge in flexibility, time and quality."
I don't know any other system provider or software that maps the entire process so comprehensively from start to finish.
