Tebis is unveiling the next release of the current Version 4.0. Release 7 introduces newly developed and improved functions for all those who want to better utilise the potential of their machines and keep their manufacturing processes ahead of others.
Concerning the user interface, customers can now save time with the R7 set-up. There is a new way to transfer user configurations, which includes easier methods to transfer toolbars, work environments and other user settings from a previous release at the click of a button. In addition, the latest updates in importing STEP data are used to specify whether to include covered geometries and axis systems, as well as references in the import. This functionality also adds more efficiency in importing small structures.
With regard to preparing for manufacturing, all sharp edges in a part can be detected using a newly devised function that stores and generates edge surfaces with a structure for optimal preparation of deburring based on NC machine templates. This feature creates the outline surfaces for cutting and restricting dies with a step relief at any cutting angle.
Programmers can now machine edges with ball or tapered cutters using the five-axis deburring function. Practical tool paths can be quickly and easily created for deburring with automatic tilt direction calculation and automatic avoidance of shank and tool-holder collisions.
Another enhancement involves 3D surface machining, which has a sorting strategy that allows users to organise the paths in a more efficient way. The paths can be further sorted from outside to inside in the ‘Axis Parallel’ strategy.
