Tebis America has announced the release of its latest CAD/CAM software, Version 3.5 R8. The release sets new standards for end-to-end high-performance machining.
The new release provides for significantly increased machining volumes and higher cutting speeds for roughing to finishing milling applications. Further, the innovative point distribution functionality in V3.5 R8 ensures better surface quality in high-speed machining.
The software also offers a unique development in high-performance machining thanks to a newly developed probe geometry. Tebis Version 3.5 R8 supports all high-speed and high-feed milling cutters with specific geometries and precisely offsets their contours. Right down to residual stock, all areas are precisely calculated and machined which result in higher productivity thanks to maximum machining volumes.
With Version 3.5 R8, Tebis also introduces a new measuring function. Measuring paths can be created with the same methods as toolpaths, using the same automation functions. A measuring probe determines the quality of the manufactured components directly at the machine. Deviations from the target are displayed at the machine controller and can be corrected without delay. Thanks to another function, a user can import, graphically display, and document the measurement result.
Another highlight of the new Tebis Version R8 is milling with 3D radius correction to compensate for tool wear. The deviation from the target can be easily calculated with the new functions for direct measuring at the machine. Tebis adds additional information to the calculated toolpaths to be evaluated by the machine controllers for radius correction. If the real tools differ from the data in the tool library, the user can enter the correction values directly into the controller.
