Tebis contains all the strategies you need to quickly machine open and closed 2.5D geometries, including multi-sided machining. Options for roughing and finishing walls and bottoms are integrated. This also simplifies NC programming: This lets you manufacture special geometries with just a single function.
The key advantage: NC programming of prismatic ruled and free-form geometries can be easily automated using Tebis feature technology for 2.5D milling – and of course automatic feature detection is also included.
The part can be machined, including roughing and finishing the bottom and finishing the flanks, with only one part selection. For special cases, it is possible to manually move the tool across planar surfaces. The tool automatically avoids the protected surfaces.
In addition to Z-constant machining, the "Z-variable" strategy enables optimal milling of 3D height contours. Large amounts of material can be removed very quickly in downward machining with special tools – even along free-form trim edges.
You can machine any circular pockets, slots, rectangular pockets or free-form pockets. Optimal NC paths are generated based on the geometry: A special strategy is available for each geometry type. Flank and base surfaces can also be machined in spiral or helical paths.
The tool can be easily positioned on any number of levels for machining 2.5D ruled geometries. In combination with feature-based automated 2.5D machining, you can thus generate a complete 5-sided machining operation quickly and with little effort within a single NC program.
This video shows how NC programs can essentially be generated completely automatically for pockets that require similar machining. The template is copied, the calculation is started – and the NC program is complete.
