    What our customers are saying

    The responsibilities of leading the industry

    With its Automill® technology, Tebis revolutionized NC programming and model, mold and die manufacturing in the 1990s. Tebis was the first 3D CAM system that ran on a PC. To this day, Tebis remains true to its leading role in serving its customers. Countless customers from many industry sectors around the world work with the Tebis CAM solutions – and their voices say it all.

    To reduce our collision rate to zero and to simultaneously save time-consuming checking after postprocessing, we used a simulation with millimeter accuracy of the machine model and the tools in the virtual world. Only Tebis was able to do this.

    Hermann Geueke, Head of machining, GEDIA Gebrüder Dingerkus GmbH, Germany

    Tebis lets us automate many processes, and users lose no time working with different files. These advantages are especially prominent when there are design changes.

    Ryan Hotchkiss, head of manufacturing at Integrity Tool and Mold, Canada

    From our first introduction to CNC manufacturing to our collaboration that’s lasted many years, we’ve had nothing but good experiences with Tebis Software and Services. The Tebis technicians are always quick to find the appropriate solution.

    Tebis Automill®

    For optimal automation

    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.

    Robotic machining

    Tebis supports robots for all types of machining. Because you’re programming with a virtual robot (digital twin) right from the start, there are no surprises later due to recalculation or other issues. You can therefore proceed directly from the CAD data to the completed robotic machining program with no detours.



    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. 

    Rib and slot milling

    Automated CAD and CAM functions make rib and slot milling very simple. All areas that are suitable for slot milling are automatically detected by the system and divided into categories, like the bottom, flanks and radii. These areas can then be machined using suitable strategies based on templates.


    Quickly and reliably generate toolpaths for 5-axis trimming of parts with Tebis. Collisions with other component areas, clamping devices and machine components are excluded. Offline programming lets you avoid tedious teach-in and unproductive use of the machine. 



    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

    You can create reliable, collision-checked CNC programs for your lathes in the complete digital Tebis manufacturing environment. This enables you to quickly and reliably manufacture both simple and complex components.


    With Tebis, you can provide NC programs to machines with turning, milling and drilling functions. The operation of turn-milling machines with the least possible user intervention and monitoring poses special requirements for the CAD/CAM process.



    Sinker EDM

    Tebis puts you in control of the complexities of sinker EDM – from automatic detection to convenient, database-supported design, methodical NC machining, to measurement of the finished electrodes.

    Wire EDM

    Tebis provides wire EDM functions for precisely manufactured parts with highly complex geometry, maximum quality requirements and the smallest corner radii: for example, components in die and mold manufacturing and the medical and aerospace industries. 


    Laser processing

    3D laser cutting

    You can quickly and easily calculate collision-checked NC programs for 3D laser cutting with Tebis. You can use these to cut your sheet-metal parts no matter how complex the geometry. Offline programmingletsyou avoid tedious teach-in andunproductive use of the machine.

    Laser hardening

    You can easily create NC programs for laser hardening systems with Tebis. This specific hardening of highly-stressed areas of steel and cast steel parts doesn’t typically require any re-machining. This lets you finish-machine the components in the unhardened state in single-part production in mold, die or machine manufacturing. 

    Laser weld cladding

    You can create NC programs for laser weld cladding systems with Tebis. This enables a targeted application of coatings in modified areas with essentially no distortion. You can quickly and easily repair areas, apply material to modified areas and refine component areas.
