CAD, CAM and Related Software

CAD/CAM Software is used to generate part designs and then CNC machining programs corresponding to part designs. Short for “computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing,” these systems create these programs for CNC machine tools. In general, CAM development has proceeded along two different tracks. Geometry-based CAM systems used in die/mold machining and other applications focus on complex milled geometries. Algorithms provide specific and efficient ways for machining complex geometries with both high precision and long tool life. By contrast, feature-based CAM systems are generally used in the production machining of geometrically simpler components.
Feature

Software Provides Time Savings and Improved Accuracy

Shops get paid for making chips, and profit comes from making them as efficiently as possible. Shop management software is a key to reducing waste by ensuring that machining is being done on the right jobs, in the right way and at the right time.
Feature

Handling Machining Complexity with CAM

With the increase in demand for closer tolerances on difficult-to-machine parts, shops look to improve efficiency through simplified processes.
