Intelligent manufacturing from Tebis – MACH 2022

Tebis, a specialist provider of CAD/CAM and MES solutions for mechanical component, model, pattern, die and mould manufacturing, will be displaying the latest release of Tebis CAD/CAM software Version 4.1 and ProLeiS MES.

Both will be available for live viewing throughout the duration of the show complemented by a series of live, scheduled technical presentations (see below) hosted by the Tebis UK team on each day of the exhibition:


Automotive Model Machining


NC Process Optimisation and CAM Automation


Mill trimming and Laser Cutting


Multi-axis Component Machining

Tebis Version 4.1 is a complete CAD/CAM system that is designed for intelligent manufacturing. The new release moves one step further towards full optimisation of CNC machining processes, having been extended to include a new clamping device library, intelligent collision avoidance strategies, in-process measurement cycles and seamless integration of Tebis’ ProLeiS MES system.

In terms of functionality, one of the major additions in Tebis 4.1 is parametric-associative modelling, which further supports highly automated processing in a single, all-encompassing CAD/CAM system for design, manufacturing preparation and CAM programming.

The proven manufacturing database libraries, where all of the manufacturing components and experience data is stored have been supplemented with a clamping device library in the form of digital twins. This can be used to conveniently create and manage clamping elements and clamping device groups to set up the machine in the virtual environment.

Tebis 4.1 also supports measurement cycles, which can be fully integrated into CNC machining processes. This allows users of Tebis’ CAM system to check if the component is correctly clamped and the blank is correctly dimensioned and oriented – ensuring shorter setup and machining time, higher component quality and fewer corrections.

For even greater safety with Tebis 4.1, machine tool heads are fully accounted for in collision checking during NC calculation. In the event of potential collisions with machine heads, the affected areas are automatically reduced or excluded from machining. The same also applies here – the check is performed using real rather than substitute geometry.

Large savings can potentially be made in single-part manufacturing, thanks to optimised and stored manufacturing processes.

With ProLeiS and Tebis 4.1 users can split up entire assemblies and individual parts into proven processing sequences and even complex manufacturing projects can be planned, controlled and implemented. Logistics for purchased parts, blanks and machine components are also accounted for throughout the process. The key advantage being machines are optimally utilised and all activities can be assigned to specific manufacturing designs, NC programmers and machine operators.

ProLeiS MES can also be easily combined as an integration platform with upstream and downstream systems like PDM, ERP and machine control.

Joe Zhou, managing director at Tebis UK explains: “Manufacturing processes should be consistent and reliable; this is where Tebis can help companies by optimising and standardising CNC processes and automating CAM work.

“The best practices of a company can be built into Tebis’ library database which can then be shared and reused for daily operations. This will help to optimise usage of machine capacities and cutting tools as well as the machining processes and associated parameters.”
