TEBIS AMERICA ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF VERSION 4.0 RELEASE 2 CAD/CAM SOFTWARE

Milling efficiency with up to 60 percent time savings in roughing and extending tool life highlight new launch

May 24, 2016 - Tebis America, a leading software company specializing in CAD/CAM systems for design and manufacturing—servicing the tool, die, mold, aerospace and automotive manufacturing industries, has announced the launch of its Version 4.0 Release 2 CAD/CAM software. This new launch is especially well-suited to the rough machining of deep cavities and is effective for hard material machining as well.


In roughing, the depth of cut and the best utilization of cutting data ensure fast and cost-effective manufacturing while keeping tool costs low. The tool path automatically adapts to the geometry without full-width machining. The integrated re-roughing counteracts the formation of larger steps in steep boundary areas. These areas can be machined from bottom to top with a smaller depth of cut.

Tebis has performed extensive tests on this version. "The best way to machine a component depends on a wide range of factors", explains Helmut Vergin, Tebis Product Manager. "These include the specific geometry, the material and the available tools and machines. Technology parameters such as cutting data and feed rates must be adapted accordingly to the machining. That is why it was important to conduct the tests with tool and machine manufacturers."

As a technology partner, Tebis provides advice on how to best implement and combine the new software to achieve the best possible results.

Tebis America, part of Tebis AG, Munich, Germany, develops CAD/CAM systems for tool, die and mold manufacturing, primarily for automobile and aircraft manufacturers and their subcontractors from the styling, model making, tool and mold manufacturing sectors. The

company supplies turnkey installations and also provides a full suite of 40 software modules focusing on increasing its customers' ability to reach higher profits through consulting, implementing new technology, training and support.

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital is pleased to announce the launch of the E4T, their latest series of miniature high performance optical encoders. The E4T series delivers a marked performance increase over similar encoder models and designed to be an enhanced replacement for the E4P encoder series. The E4T utilizes state of the art transmissive optical sensing technology, and incorporates US Digital's own proprietary OptoASIC. Assembly of the E4T is simple and efficient and retains the previous E4P's form factor. Key features of the new E4T include: • Mechanically and Electrically Interchangeable with E4P • Improved Quadrature Signal Strength • 100 kHz Frequency Response • Transmissive Optical Design • Collet Style Push on Optical Disk Design (Patent Pending) • Simple & Efficient Assembly Process As with all of our products the E4T is designed and manufactured in their Vancouver, Washington USA facility and is available for purchase as of December 2014.
