SYSTEMS AND SOFTWARE MMS FEBRUARY 2018 124 CAD/CAM System Automates NC Programming Release 5 of Tebis America's version 4.0 CAD/CAM system is designed to help users accelerate processes without functional restrictions. Updated features encom- pass machine simulation, tool seats, tool search in fea- ture machining and tool exchange in the job manager. NC programming is largely automated using tem- plates with process libraries designed for fast, reliable processes. Users can also edit large and complex parts. Tebis identified bottleneck processes that result in long wait times and resource conflicts, and adapted its system to optimize available memory. Multi-core paral- lel processing is also integrated to save time, especially in calculating NC programs for re-roughing. Time opti- mization enables parts to be loaded, shaded and saved. | Tebis America Inc. | 877-748-3247 | Improved Access to Cloud-Based Tool Data Management System TDM Systems has introduced TDM Cloud Line, a cloud- based solution for tool data management that enables manufacturers to access tool data wherever, whenever. The key advantage of the solution is that users can down- load and manage data from thousands of tools without having to purchase them, the company says. Users can test alternative tools during the product design process and select the best tool for the job. Data from the cloud is available anywhere and ready for immediate usage in the virtual cutting process. Other benefits include easy tool database setup, prepared and tested tool data for immediate use, provi- sioning of correct CAM data, manufacturer-independent tool assembly, statistical evaluation, and a structured and configurable user interface. | TDM Systems Inc. | 847-605-1269 Booth #135037 The seamless, modular workpiece clamping system. The wide range of available clamping jaws and surfaces hold any workpiece securely and accurately. Increase productivity by integrating the CleverClamp base rails into your automation system.
