Tebis America has launched its Version 4.0 Release 2 CAD/CAM software for tool, die and mold manufacturing. This version is said to be especially well-suited to rough machining of deep cavities and effective for hard-material machining as well.

In roughing, according to the company, 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, and 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.
