CAM – Automation
Shorter programming time thanks to improved NCJob technology
Your CAM programs are finished more quickly with these new features:
Take advantage of the opportunity to automatically apply interactively defined milling areas from previous NCJobs in milling.This allows you to reduce manual intervention in CAM programming and calculate entire NCJob sequences at once. CAM programming is also significantly simplified – you can easily manage combined machining operations in an end-to-end CAM template.
And you can avoid issues like superfluous calculation time by conveniently calculating multiple NCJobs simultaneously up to “Areas calculated” or “Sorting executed” status.
CAM – Drilling
Flexibly use special cutters
CAM – Milling
Optimal cutting conditions for roughing rotationally symmetrical parts
A real plus for combined turning/milling operations: In addition to cylindrical parts, tapered parts such as screw conveyors can now also be machined with high efficiency. The tool first roughs the part to the maximum possible depth with a low stepover and large downfeed in a single pass. Then it machines the residual stock from bottom to top with a smaller cutting depth – precisely to the stock allowance. This procedure reduces tool wear and ensures a high material removal rate on the machine. The user can easily program the final finishing operation with a special function: Only the strategy is replaced – the system does the rest.
Safely manufacture external threads
External threads can now be quickly manufactured in just one NC program – including stud, chamfer and undercut This gives parts manufacturers even more options for programming toolpaths quickly, completely and safely in a simulation-supported CAM system.
Efficiently machine planar areas
It’s usually more cost-effective to machine the planar areas of a part after hardening with a smaller stock allowance than the non-planar areas Special tool types like large insert mills can then be used for this step. Tebis therefore offers a new function that automatically detects purely planar areas within selected part surfaces without the need to further subdivide the part.
Automatic tilt direction calculation with circle-segment cutters
This new function greatly simplifies the programming of multi-axis toolpaths for pre-finishing and finishing with circle-segment cutters, also known as “barrel cutters”. It automatically determines the best tilt direction for manufacturing the machining area completely free of collisions. The function simultaneously calculates the optimal contact point at the surface boundary to ensure the maximum possible material removal. Machining is indexed or 5-axis simultaneous: The user can independently specify the preferred variant or can leave the decision up to the system.
Continuous, automated 3-axis finishing of flank surfaces, transition areas and bottom surfaces with no offset
Geometries with steep flank surfaces, straight bottom surfaces and entrance and exit radii – like ribs and slots – can now be machined automatically and with a uniform step and 3-axis Z-constant machining with the “Finishing surfaces” function – without retract movements, without extra design effort and at outstanding quality.
CAM – Lathe
Turning with convenient cutting off of the part
Parts can be cut off from bar stock with a special function for automated machining on lathes or turning-milling centers. You can quickly and easily define the optimal cutting conditions for feed rate and speed on material exit. You can easily cut the part off straight or finish its contour at the same time without having to design an auxiliary geometry. You can deburr the part and turn the bar side flat during cutoff. This allows you to immediately manufacture the next part with the bar stock. The cut-off part can be transferred to the second spindle or taken up by the part gripper/catcher – with automatic control and reliable simulation.
CAM – Machine technology
Improved support for multi-channel machine tools
This innovation is especially advantageous for manufacturing companies that rely on combined turning/milling operations, especially if the components to be machined have a high milling fraction: Tebis can now be used to program toolpaths for sequential processing on machines with multiple tool and component holders. The individual steps – such as milling with a milling head or turret, stabilizing with a centering tip or clamping with a sub spindle – can be combined in any way. All tool and component holders are stored in the virtual Tebis process libraries: These can be interchanged quickly and flexibly in programming. As always in Tebis, all system components are fully accounted for in collision checking and simulation. Programming is as easy as can be, following Tebis’s stringent and proven programming logic. Tebis automatically generates NC code for any machines and supports all control-specific program structures, such as Gildemeister structure programs.
