Laser hardening

    Specific hardening of highly-stressed areas – without remachining

    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 does not usually 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. This simplifies the production of trim and coining steels, cutting edges on draw die punches and lower dies. This lets you harden precisely defined areas like high-stressed radii and areas in molding plates.

    Suitable for complex component geometries with a high degree of automation and simultaneous flexibility
    High quality
    Consistent high quality and reliability with controlled and standardized processes
    Smooth pivoting movements for robots and machines
    Milling and hardening in a single environment


    The fully integrated solution includes manufacturing preparation and lets you automatically generate equidistant guide curves. Integrated collision checking then supports the simple and intuitive calculation of NC programs for laser hardening systems. You can control complex machines and robots with up to eight axes. Beam geometry and technology data like material, laser power, temperature and hardening depth can be efficiently managed. The laser’s 3D beam geometry is automatically guided tangentially, and double hardening is prevented. However, you can also define the tilt direction of the hardening beam and perform automatic or manual interpolation.

    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.

    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.

    Designing and manufacturing active surfaces to exact specifications

    Tebis offers automated design functions with which active surface designers can include sheet thickness, thinning effects and reliefs in the design of the CAD active surfaces. This results in significant time savings in NC programming, machining and tryout.

    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.
