The die and automotive industry in China is changing: Future-oriented CAD/CAM solutions are an absolute must to meet the great demand and ever-increasing requirements in the domestic and international markets. Tebis is increasingly positioning itself locally as the partner of choice and supports industry in China in its development from the world's workshop to the world's high-tech laboratory.
Tebis China recently held its own user conferences in the cities of Suzhou and Chengdu with the trendsetting motto, "Reaching for the future with innovation and knowledge." At the events, each of which attracted more than 100 representatives from industries as well as from education and research, users presented their results with Tebis using presentations based on practical examples. The most exciting application examples came from long-term Tebis partners, including Saic Volkswagen, Yesun (Shanghai) Mould Co. Ltd. and Hitachi Tool. Participants were treated to very realistic applications demonstrating how efficiency, capacity and added value for the customer can be increased with Tebis.
Hosting the event, Tebis discussed the challenges of digitalization, including reliability, knowledge and efficiency. As an integral part of the conferences, participants discussed questions of how manufacturing companies can further develop intelligent automation in the workshop in the age of Industry 4.0. Zhuang Xiaolin, general manager at Tebis China, explained:
Intelligent manufacturing entails significant changes. These present us with new challenges but also show potential. Our task is to support the companies in integrating resources and further developing automation. The goal is to improve production quality and to bring companies to the forefront in automatic production as well as intelligent manufacturing.
Liu Yongchao, head of Manufacturing at Sichuan Push Mold Co. Ltd., illustrated how using Tebis can improve quality and efficiency in applications like automatic surface optimization, springback compensation or class-A optimization of surface models, thereby optimizing the overall technology level.
