New milling strategies

Adaptive roughing and integrated re-roughing available in Tebis as of Version 4.0 Release 2


The best way to machine a component depends on various factors. The new milling strategies are especially well suited to components with steep cavities and can also be used very effectively for hard materials. They realize their full potential in combination with high performance cutters (HPC).

In adaptive roughing, the path layout is automatically adapted to the geometry without full-width machining. The large depth of cut and smaller lateral stepover ensure highly efficient manufacturing.

The formation of larger steps in steep boundary areas is only a disadvantage at first glance: Integrated re-roughing enables machining of these areas from bottom to top with a smaller depth of cut.

Continuous manufacturing

Countless studies show: 40 to 50 percent of a plant’s entire throughput time is caused by unnecessary idle periods. This is often due to a flawed material flow. In 90 percent of cases, idle periods can be drastically reduced by…
