Challenges in production machining

    As a Tebis user in production machining, you can benefit from the simple and logical structure of the CAD/CAM software and the flexible options for automation. The software uses digital twins of your manufacturing equipment. The result is standardized and reliable manufacturing processes that allow you to minimize your setup time and tool costs and optimize machine run time – while continuing to manufacture at the same high quality.

    From welded structures to eccentric shafts

    The applications for Tebis in machine manufacturing are as wide-ranging as is ingenuity itself in the industry. Whether it’s from solid material, cast, forged or welded structures – machine manufacturers produce parts for highly diverse applications. This is achieved quickly and at the highest quality using Tebis CAD/CAM technology. 


    Welded structures

    Your large welded structures already create a great deal of value. The Tebis simulation methods ensure maximum reliability in subsequent machining.

    Small parts

    You can machine all parts in the shortest time with your stored manufacturing knowledge and standardized NC programming from Tebis. The question of CAM or control programming is eliminated.

    Spiral mandrel

    If you use many different technologies in manufacturing, like turning, milling and drilling, to wire EDM or deep drilling, Tebis lets you use them all in a compact system. This reduces risk and creates efficiency.


    When remachining castings, the NC verification integrated in the CAD/CAM software ensures reliability and efficiency. Reliable NC programs also facilitate automation and multi-machine operation.

    Functional elements

    Optimally utilize large machines that have high hourly costs. A virtual manufacturing environment and digitalized manufacturing knowledge ensure that this process is automated and efficient.  

    Eccentric shaft

    You can manage many different tools like shaping and side-milling tools in turning/milling. Control machine units like main and secondary spindles in Tebis, including part transfer.

    More clarity in manufacturing

    A revolution in manufacturing

    The requirements for single part and small series manufacturing in production machining and systems manufacturing are continuously increasing



    Tebis CAD/CAM software for machine manufacturing

    Whether it’s for data import, preparing parts for NC programming or machining with a wide range of technologies, the Tebis product model always has the right solution. Based on your requirements, we configure precisely the modules that can help you  

    Preparing CAD models for manufacturing

    Fast and safe with combined solid and surface technology in Tebis: The better a CAD model is prepared for NC manufacturing, the less time and effort needs to be invested in NC programming. In many cases, NC programming can proceed automatically in Tebis.

    CAD interfaces for smooth data transfer

    Establish connections to other CAD systems via direct and standard interfaces. Our CAD interfaces ensure a smooth, two-way and extremely reliable data transfer.

    CNC programming

    Tebis CNC programming greatly reduces programming and setup time in the overall process chain. Tebis combines speed, reliability and a high degree of automation with the greatest possible flexibility. The portfolio includes industry-specific solutions for all areas, including 2.5D, 3D and 5-axis machining.

    CNC automation
    Tebis Automill® evaluates the digital CAD part model and accesses a previously stored structure of digital representations of the company's manufacturing environment and the manufacturing knowledge stored in templates to calculate the NC programs.
    CNC simulator

    The Tebis CNC Simulator lets you fully plan, program and check your NC machining operations in the Tebis CNC programming environment. All of the components in your real manufacturing environment – including tools, machines, clamping devices and units – are stored down to the last detail as digital twins in the virtual programming environment. 

    Multiple setup

    Tebis lets you separate NC programming and setup planning. NC programming and machining can be done independently in terms of time and organization. Parts and clamping devices are also protected from collisions.

    CNC drilling

    Tebis lets you program simple bores and complex multi-sided machining operations right at your CAM workplace. Strategies for centering, countersinking, reaming, thread cutting, thread milling and milling fittings are included. You benefit from automated manufacturing templates and shortened traverse paths using virtual machine technology. 

    Deep-hole drilling

    Tebis offers an automated, reliable and complete solution for deep-hole drilling that you can use to achieve excellent high cutting performance. You can also benefit from functions such as automatic detection of spot facings or sorting and grouping of features by tilt direction and machining sequence.

    CNC turning

    Streamline CNC programs for your machines with Tebis‘ complete digital Tebis manufacturing environment. Create safe, collision-checked programs, enabling fast and reliable manufacturing of both simple and complex parts.


    With Tebis, you can deliver NC programs to machines with turning, milling and drilling functions. Operating turn-milling machines with minimal user intervention and monitoring demands specific considerations within the CAD/CAM process.

    2.5D milling

    Prismatic machining can be completely automated based on individual process libraries using Tebis template technology. Programming on the machine is eliminated and NC programming at the Tebis workstation is simple.

    3D milling

    Free-form machining lets you combine all your strategies for roughing, finishing and residual stock machining in the Tebis Job Manager. You can use convenient template technology and ensure collision avoidance already in the CAM environment.

    5-axis milling

    Tebis 5-axis milling lets you use the full potential of your expensive high-performance machines: Collision-free programs can be easily planned and calculated for all multi-axis machining operations. Simultaneous 5-axis strategies that are customized for specific manufacturing tasks make NC programming very simple – especially in combination with Tebis template technology. 

    High-efficiency roughing

    Compared with conventional roughing, time savings of over 60 percent can be achieved with adaptive roughing using special HPC cutters with very large cutting depths. The path layout is perfectly adapted to the geometry with no full cuts. 

    HFC milling

    HFC tools allow you to achieve high machining rates at high feed rates. Tebis calculates the residual stock with absolute precision: The maximum amount of possible material is removed. HFC tools can therefore be used optimally with Tebis, not only for roughing but also for prefinishing. 

    Circle-segment cutters

    Circle-segment cutters have a special geometry that saves you up to 80 percent of the time required for prefinishing and finishing compared to machining with ball cutters. Tebis supports all these kinds of efficient high-performance tools – because each tool can be modeled with precise attention to detail in the virtual CAM environment. 

    In-process measurement

    Establish the necessary process reliability during unattended late shifts and night shifts with automatic checking and correction of part orientation and blank dimensions. This lets you make the best possible use of highly automated machine centers.
