Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) is an indispensable part of modern production. This technology is used to create control processes for manufacturing. By choosing productive strategies, the control processes can be optimized to achieve maximum efficiency.
With interfaces such as the simulation environment, collusion can be detected and eliminated even before the practical implementation of the manufacturing process.
After a control process has been programmed in the CAM environment, it can be translated into the machine-specific control with the help of so-called post-processors.
✔ The main advantage of CAM technology is that errors are reduced to a minimum when generating NC programs for machine control.
✔ In principle, technical drawings are no longer required for manual programming on the machine.
✔ With various strategies, efficiency can be increased and the load on machine and tool can be reduced.
✔ Through optimized production processes throughput times significantly reduced
✔ Machine simulation and collusion testing
✔Very expensive depending on the software package
✔Each machine requires a machine-specific post processor
✔ To use a CAM systems efficiently, a trained employee is required
