5-axis trim machining is often a great challenge: when trimming complex geometries, the tool must be guided at a defined angle (usually perpendicular to the part surface or parallel to a defined flank). At the same time, there must be no collisions with other part areas, clamping devices, and machine components. Therefore, it is a tedious process to create CNC programs for trimming in teach-in, blocking expensive manufacturing resources. You can regain this lost productivity using CNC programming in the Tebis CAD/CAM system. This applies to both vacuum-formed parts made out of thermoplastic materials and to parts made out of composite materials (e.g. carbon) as well as to parts clad with wood and with other natural materials.
