CAM BOOTCAMPS

CAM - COMPUTER AIDED MANUFACTURING


CAM technology involves computer systems that plan, manage, and control the manufacturing operations through computer interface with the plant’s production resources.
One of the most important areas of CAM is numerical control (NC). This is the technique of using programmed instructions to control a machine tool, which mills raw stock into a finished part.

WHY ?


The modern manufacturing environment can be characterized by the paradigm of delivering products of increasing variety, smaller batches and higher quality in the context of increasing global competition. Industries cannot survive worldwide competition unless they introduce new products with better quality, at lower costs and with shorter lead-time. There is intense international competition and decreased availability of skilled labor.

WHAT ?


The manufacturing process starts with the shop-floor activities beginning from production planning, which uses the design process drawings and ends with the actual product. Process planning includes activities like production planning, material procurement, and machine selection. There are varied tasks like procurement of new tools, NC programming and quality checks at various stages during the production process.
