Tebis UK are delighted to announce APH3G as their latest customer. The deal, which was finalised at MACH 2018, sees APH3G introduce the Tebis Trim solution to their busy shop floor. The company, alongside its sister company AP Hollings, based in Benfleet, Essex specialise in Vacuum Forming and Fibreglass Moulding plus CNC & CMM Inspection Services.
Director, Andy Hollings explained why they chose Tebis for their business needs, “Upon looking at various companies and the packages they offered, we found Tebis to be very user friendly, with the technical capabilities being perfect for our requirements”.
The fully equipped Tebis CAD/CAM package for trimming enables automated offline NC programming for series machining of moulded plastic and complete parts. You are able to standardise your programming work in the NC Job Manager and protect your machines and tools with simulated collision checks. Calculations can run in the background whilst preparation of additional parts can take place in the foreground. Other functionalities of the Trim solution include extensive analysis, design and preparation functions for both curves and surface geometry and machinery kinematics for up to 5 axes.
Phil Smith at Tebis said “It’s great to be able to welcome APH3G on board as a Tebis customer. The work they do will benefit greatly from our bespoke Trim solution and we very much look forward to working with them”.
The benefits that Tebis Trim packages can offer include no size limitations, easy preparation of manufacturing geometry for NC programming, time savings when creating 3 to 5-axis trimming programs in offline operation, increased manufacturing speed, accuracy and quality and increased reliability with Virtual Machine simulation all in easy and intuitive operations which can reduce throughput times and costs.
Andy went on to say, “We have found the support and the service we have received to date has been superb and of the highest standard. We at APH3G are looking forward to creating a long term relationship with Tebis including looking at more software for our other machine tools”.
