Version 4.0 of Tebis America’s CAD/CAM software provides optimized functions in five-axis simultaneous milling. Features include adaptive and contour parallel roughing strategies, simple machining of connected milling areas in isoparametric surface layout, and integrated tilt direction preview when milling between vectors. 

The company is also displaying its ProLeis Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for single-part manufacturing. The system’s comprehensive data management, manufacturing planning and manufacturing control functions enable effective control of all individual parts for dies and injection molds at all stages of production.

    The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.

  • Programming A Robot The Way You Program A CNC Machine Tool

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.

    The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.
