CAM-Technology Basics

CAM technology - the introduction

     1. Introduction CNC machine
     2. Materials used in machining

     3. Procedure: Turning
     4. Procedure: Milling

1. Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)

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.

2. Advantages and disadvantages of CAM technology

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

Precision, Innovation, Perfection!
