Tebis CAD/CAM/MES at Seco Tool’s Inspiration Through Innovation Aerospace Event

Tebis, a specialist in CAD/CAM and MES process solutions once again will be demonstrating its capabilities at Seco Tool’s Inspiration Through Innovation event which will be held at Seco UK headquarters in Alcester on Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th October.

This two day event aims to create an inspiring and practical environment that is truly customer focused and demonstrates to visitors the improvements in productivity and performance benefits that can be achieved by collaboration, sharing best practice and working in partnership. There shall be a series of seminars, tutorials and demonstrations at the event.

Tebis’ demonstrations will be taking place on both days; it will involve the machining of real components with the focus on aerospace component manufacturing.  Tebis CAD/CAM will demonstrate the live machining demonstration of an Airbus A350 steel fuel connector on a Hermle C32 U 5-axis machine with full 5-axis simultaneous milling.

The reliability requirements for aerospace parts leave no room for manufacturer error. Therefore, the most stringent demands for reliability, quality and efficiency must be met. Tebis CAD/CAM designed 5-axis simultaneous milling for a simple and fast roughing operation which removes the maximum amount of material in a single operation by utilising full 5-axis motion. There is a huge time saving on the operation when machining on non-linear areas.

Andrew Walters, application engineer from Tebis UK comments: “Traditionally roughing would employ small step-downs with a larger width of a cut calculated in a water-line fashion method. With Tebis, we will use a 5-axis simultaneous motion to allow us to get down into complex forms. In addition to the traditional water line method, Tebis can use adaptive roughing.”

As well as an increase in tool life and operation accuracy by giving a more consistent volume of roughed material on a part, the finishing tools need to do less work. An additional benefit of this process is a more consistent volume of roughed material on a part.

Tebis CAD/CAM provides a single environment for all your manufacturing needs and requirements including CAD/CAM processes like optimisation, standardisation, automation, 2D to 5 Axis Milling, 5 Axis trimming, laser cutting, mill turn, reverse engineering, MES – manufacturing data management, data acquisition and production planning.  Visit the Tebis team to find out how your business can benefit.
The event is free to visitors, and doors open on both days at 09.00 – closing at 19.00 on the 9th October and 16.00 on the 10th October.
