The Tebis Challenge: Save time with CAD and CAM templates 

    Time savings of up to 85% with Tebis 4.1 – 9 customers wanted to find out if and how this was possible and brought their CAD models with them to the 2022 Open House. For each model, Tebis employees had 1 hour for CAD preparation and CAM programming of the parts.
    9 customer parts only 1 template
     CAD preparation and CAM programming
    in less than 1 hour for each part

    The surprisingly simple solution: Standards and automation with digital manufacturing knowledge stored in a single CAD template. This CAD template was used for automated CAD preparation of each of the nine customer parts. The automated CAM programming based on this preparation benefited and was quickly completed.
    The same CAD template was used for all nine CAD models participating in the challenge.

    Results: Time per part and processing steps

    CAD preparation
    1. Data read in
    2. Data preparation
      • Fill surfaces closed
      • Connection points for setups created
      • Part zero point set
      • Retract planes defined
      • Bores for clamping systems created
      • Measuring points set
      • Blank created
      • Clamping devices positioned
      • Various other tasks
    3. Features inserted and sorted
    CAM programming
    1. Clamping situation defined
    2. CAD objects automatically included in CAM templates
    3. Individual toolpaths created
    4. Toolpaths calculated

    "The Challenge was very informative."

    Finished in 35 minutes: The part brought by designer Thomas Wessel (left) and CAM programmer Harry Epp (both from Polipol Group).


    The new template was presented to us and we now have significantly improved the automation of programming our parts.
    We expect this to bring us a lot of time savings.
    Harry Epp, Tebis key user CAM - Polipol Group


    Once the template is customized for our parts, we can provide it to our colleagues in Poland, so that they can have complete CAM programs for complex parts with just a few mouse clicks.

    Non-productive time like positioning the clamping devices and defining the setup positions and blanks took far too long in the past. With V4.1, you can now massively reduce these periods. We see a very big potential here.

    During the challenge, I was able to see that certain components that are needed in a similar way again and again can be partially prepared and programmed in an automated way.
    Henning Kersch, technical design and Tebis programer, Schäfer GmbH & Co. KG

    Your applications engineer clearly and logically showed how even an unknown part can be fast and safely prepared with just a few mouse clicks to quickly calculate the first toolpath.
