Increase machining volumes

Precise calculations.

06TEB-R8Version 3.5 of Tebis America’s R8 CAD/CAM software increases machining volumes and produces higher cutting speeds for roughing to finishing milling applications with better surface quality.

It supports all high-speed and high-feed milling cutters with specific geometries and precisely offsets their contours.

A new function measures paths 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 for immediate correction.

Milling with 3D radius correction compensates for tool wear. The deviation from the target is easily calculated for direct measuring at the machine. Additional information is added 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, enter the correction values directly into the controller.

Tebis America, based in Troy, Mich., develops CAD/CAM systems for tool, die and mould manufacturing.
