Tebis is a market-leader in CAD/CAM/MES technology with vast experience serving customers in many industries. Tebis is also a process provider and technical partner for companies who offer specialist solutions for model, pattern, die and mould making as well as component manufacturing, together with professional training and consultancy services that can help you to increase productivity and reduce lead times.
Paul Scally, operations manager from Tebis UK explains: “Tebis aims to standardise your processes. We don’t just sell CAD/CAM software which is our core business but what we also aim to do is to be a process provider and technical partner for companies.”
Paul also explains: “Tebis has a consultancy team that comes into to your business to measure and check how you are currently working. The team will compare your business to industry standards and provide guidance on where improvements could be made. Tebis has already received special awards and it is very well recognised for the result we have produced. Rewards like: Best of Consulting Mittelstand 2018 and Top Consultant 2017”.
Tebis’ consultants will focus on factors such as: what is the situation with tooling and their management? What is the setup process and the flow of material like? Is there a lot of reworking required? Is production reliable and are the machines fully utilised? Tebis works together with the customer to define goals that they want to achieve. Are these strategic goals, such as alignment for the future or increased sales? Or are they process-based goals such as reducing throughput times or increasing efficiency and productivity? This is where Tebis software can help by implementing 5 libraries.
Tebis’ 5 main libraries are to aid and organise your CAM and best practice activities for your workshop. These are; cutting tools, machine tools and fixturing, feature libraries, pre-defined milling, drilling operations and pre-defined manufacturing processes. These tool libraries contain extensive information on all speeds and feeds, even if making a roughing or finishing operation.
Tebis also has libraries of machines available to contain the actual machine limits and kinematics.
Standardised toolpaths are able to define tool magazines that reflect reality, or if this is not available a tool cabinet and trolley next to the machine. Therefore, all tools are ready for the process and not hidden away.
The libraries contain the standards and processes for fast programming times through automation and achieve consistent quality. For example, in the workshop some engineers may work in different ways and by implementing Tebis, the job can be standardised with minimum programmer support to give fast programming time and consistent quality. The benefits of the entire process in your workshop are: increased machine productivity, automated flow of information, reduced expenditures and reduced lead times.
Paul describes: “Tebis will store all the company manufacturing knowledge in the Tebis’ libraries for automation, and then you can have an engineer produce the same jobs with the same quality very quickly.”
Talk to Tebis at MACH 2020 at the NEC in Birmingham on Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st October 2019. At Stand I42, Release 7 of Tebis CAD/CAM Version 4.0 and ProLeiS MES Version 4.0 software solutions will be available for live viewing throughout the duration of the show.
