More than 400 visitors had an opportunity to learn more about new and familiar CAD/CAM process solutions and technologies. Many partners from the Tebis technology network also presented their solutions.
The Tebis 4.1 Challenge:
The Tebis 4.1 Challenge was an absolute highlight of the Technology Days. Customers were asked in advance to bring their own CAD model as a challenge for Tebis employees in CAD preparation and CAM programming in Tebis 4.1. They spent a maximum of one hour working with the CAD model for all to see. Visitors to the Open House could follow the complete processing of customer components from production machining and die and mould manufacturing live and in the presentation room.
The result: Nine more or less complex customer parts were all prepared in less than one hour – including calculating the machining toolpaths. The spectators were thoroughly impressed. Some especially interested customers took the mouse in their own hands to try out the Tebis 4.1 template technology.
Learning from practice: Best practices from everyday life in manufacturing
Every seat in the auditorium was also filled for a compelling program of presentations on both days. Tebis customers present at the event included Teh-Cut from Croatia, Stolz & Seng, Robert Bosch, Riemann, Toyota Gazoo Racing, Schweikert, Röchling and Porsche Werkzeugbau. The presenters shared their experience on a wide range of industry topics and trends.
They talked about selecting the right software system, success with implementation and performance improvements. Other presentations on the business model and competitiveness, digitalization in die manufacturing and on working with Tebis Consulting were also rewarded with lots of applause.
Automation, CAM-integrated NC verification and time savings of up to 85%
The presentation programs were dominated by automation. Tebis experts from product management, technical support and implementation explained how Tebis CAD/CAM software can be used to increase automation along the process chain. The benefits of consistent implementation can’t be stressed enough: Time savings from data import to the manufactured component – up to 85%.
The Tebis experts also clearly showed how automation with Tebis template technology combines fast processing with safe manufacturing. Templates, virtual setup, complete CAM-integrated collision checking with NC verification – the essential foundation for automated work is an optimised and standardised procedures.
